This ‘Shark Tank’ favorite helped provide aid in hurricane relief

Beef up your emergency kit or just be well-prepared in case your next camping trip gets rained on. This solar lantern is ideal to have on hand.

The LuminAid solar lantern team became well-known on Shark Tank for their contributions in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria in 2017. They distributed their lanterns to areas that couldn’t re-establish functioning power lines. These solar-powered, inflatable, weather-resistant lanterns can charge even in overcast weather. You can also charge them via USB.

Plus, the handle allows you to attach it to a backpack or tent. Its nine color modes can help send messages or other types of alerts. With up to 12 hours of run time, the LuminAid is exactly the tool  you can rely on when everything else goes wrong.

You can help support the company’s efforts in Puerto Rico and pick up this LuminAid PackLite Spectra Solar Inflatable & USB Lantern: Set of 2 for $34.99 (regularly $49).
