Show Description

Compact lighting that lets you leave the batteries at home. The SunLight is a fully dimmable solar-powered light that lets you choose the perfect brightness and the ideal colour. RGB LEDs let you cycle through all the colours of the rainbow. The efficient solar panel means you get to use light how you want, without having to consider battery conservation.

  • RGB LEDs let you cycle through the colours of the rainbow, and you can even set them to cycle automatically should you feel the need for a fireside dance party.
  • Red light mode helps preserve night vison.
  • Integrated kickstand helps you optimize the angle to the sun during the day, and set the perfect lighting position at night.
  • 360-degree kickstand and sundial feature ensures proper alignment and therefore maximum output.
  • Kickstand rotates to cover the power button to lock out operation, so it won’t accidentally turn on in your pack.
  • Dimmable lighting lets you dial in the perfect brightness.
  • IPX4 waterproofing means the light keeps shining even when Mother Nature has other ideas.
  • Rugged plastic housing is built for life’s adventures.
  • Power indicator flashes when you turn it off to let you know you how much power your SunLight’s battery has.
  • Micro-USB port lets you top up your SunLight in bad conditions.
  • Dimensions: 8.5 x 8.6 x 2.3cm.
  • Internal battery charges with 7 hours of sun or 2 hours of USB power.
