Rated 5 out of 5 by Rhod from LuminAID rechargable lamp I needed a portable light that packs small to fit on a motorcycle as I do a lot of bush camping and luggage space is scarce. You can carry this in your pocket. I bought 1 and tried it out 9 months ago. Easily lights a tent, caravan, a small room or enough light to move around a large room or walking around the bush at night. Even used it to light the camp area in fire ban areas, switched on around 6.30pm and turned it off 2am. no change to the brightness. Being inflatable you get a 360 light you can hang it almost anywhere. So impressed I had to get 4 more for the car and house. Stick it in the sun as you pack up or when you stop for lunch up and you will be set for the next night.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Happy camper from Easy and effective I bought this to light our tent at night when we are getting into sleeping bags etc. It's probably a little dim to read by, but great for casting a gentle light around the whole tent. Charges up during the day from the sun, folds up very small, and has a hook to hang by from the tent ceiling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ohsevenphive from Fabulous invention I bought two of these for some gentle light at night in the vast darkness of the bush. I'm so glad I did and I haven't stopped banging on to my friends about them. Charge them in the sun, inflate, switch it on and they're bright for hours with a lovely gentle glow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mad traveler from A brilliant and illuminating product!!! I have previously purchased LuminAids to give as 'gifts' to people in remote places we visit and work around the world. This time the gift went to people on Pentecost Island, Vanuatu, after their Category 5 cyclone. Not only do LuminAids attract curious interest, they work so incredibly well. A brilliant creation. I'll continue to buy these regularly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by totara from Must have I have bought these as gifts after buying one for ourselves. I show our luminaid to visitors and all are impressed. We have used ours in powercuts. We are from a city of earthquakes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by browneyedgirl from Excellent for emergencies, and camping or tramping I'm buying several to give to family in the Dominican Republic who only get electricity randomly, for 4 hours at a time. Enough light to see, to avoid dependence on candles, and we've got one for our own emergency kit (and to use camping). Two power settings will allow it to be used on low as a night light for comfort. Love the solar recharge, and that they fold down so small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sooz Solo from Folds into pocket Travelling in Africa, many places lose power, often(!), with no notice. I carry this in my pocket/shoulder bag always. Quite regularly use a couple of them too for more ambient, rather than bright lighting, even when electricity is available. I also take it to the beach at night. Pocket-size, water-proof, blows up to provide a good ambit of soft light, great staying power. Bought 2, bought 2 more; and if I could, would buy 1 for every child in Africa to illuminate them when they walk dark streets with vehicles screaming by at cracking paces!!!
