Several years ago, I was constantly hauling heavy lanterns into the woods. I had to carry mantels and fuel and tried to not break the glass while traveling, that is until I saw something in the camping section of my not so favorite Superstore. Lo and behold, I looked up and saw this amazing little device. The Luci solar powered lantern. I did what any self-respecting Outdoorsman would do right there in the middle of the store… I started reading reviews! after reading several reviews and looking at all the specifications I picked up two of them for around $15 each. I went home I started using them immediately.
