The Perfect Solar Lantern for Traveling and Camping

Today I would like to introduce you to the lighting company called Dorcy who sells hundreds and hundreds of indoor and outdoor lighting products. When you shop at Dorcy you will find motion sensing lighting, flashlights, flood lights, path lights, battery operated ceiling lights, camping lanterns, headlights, spotlights and so much more!

For this review we were sent the Solar USB 100 Lumens Lantern which is one of the coolest lanterns I've ever seen! The base of the lantern is made out of a soft, flexible and collapsible rubber or silicone type of material...so you can collapse down the lantern for space-saving storage. If your a hiker...you can easily collapse it down and fit it in your backpack. If you do a lot of traveling, it will fit into your luggage too!

A few months ago we took this Solar USB 100 Lumens Lantern down with us to the Jersey Shore. We like to sit out on the deck at night and watch the waves roll in. In addition, we like to sit out there and play a game of cards or just chat with our neighbors. Lighting is an issue, so we took 3 of these lanterns along with us & they worked out perfectly!

One of the things I love about them is that flexible silicone base! We can use these lights out by the swimming pool, on the deck, out on the boat, taken them camping, hiking and all sorts of different things and we don't have to worry about them breaking if we drop one. The top unscrews from the base so you can store your hotel key, car keys, some cash money, lip balm, your jewelry or whatever small items you have along with you in the base for safekeeping.

These lights can be charged with the sun (they are solar) but they also come with a USB cord, so that you can charge them up via your computer too. That's great if you have a super cloudy day and need to charge them up for later use.

If you love to go camping or spend a lot of time outdoors at night, you can use the carrying strap to hang them up on a tree branch, hanging hook or just set them on the table top. If you need to walk to the bathroom or down a trail and it's dark, you can carry your lantern along with you. At home we hang them on garden hooks around our back pathway that leads to our swimming pool. I don't have to worry about the kids knocking them over!

I absolutely LOVE these solar lanterns! I think they are fantastic for use at-home or while traveling. You can pack them in your luggage, a backpack, a carry-on bag or take them along with you in your RV (travel trailer). They're light-weight and compact in size. In my opinion, the perfect little solar lanterns to take along with you!

This is a great lantern. I love that it is collapsible, would be hard to break and gives great light. Dorcy makes wonderful lights.
