LuminAID was founded by two architecture graduate students in response to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Taking into consideration the conditions in temporary accommodations and the basic need for light, they developed a unique solar-powered, waterproof light source that packs flat and inflates when opened. Lightweight enough to be shipped easily in aid boxes, the solar lanterns were distributed in Haiti and later supplied to international NGOs such as Shelterbox and Doctors Without Borders. The company is still deeply rooted in supporting NGOs and nonprofits through their Give Light, Get Light program, giving individuals who lack proper access to electricity the opportunity to have an accessible light source.
The PackLite Max 2-in-1 phone charger is the perfect all-purpose light source for the campsite, providing 150 lumens of bright LED light on Turbo mode and 50 hours running time on Low mode. Recharging it is a cinch and can be done via USB charging or direct sunlight; it can also fully charge a phone in 2-4 hours. With LuminAID’s pack-flat technology, this solar inflatable lantern and phone charger inflates to a 6 x 6 x 6 inch cube and is made from 100% PVC-free and phthalate-free durable thermoplastic polyurethane, ensuring that no carcinogens are emitted and making it safe to use around families.
