Luci is Mpowerd's "little solar lantern with a big impact" and for the price and light produced -- 1200 lumens -- it does seem to fit the bill. But what really makes this lantern so fantastic, is that Luci is aimed to provide "solar justice" for those off the grid or perhaps suffering through some type of natural disaster and it is done on the cheap. Luci is a solar-powered LED lantern that will juice up in the sun in six hours and then produce six to 12 hours of light from that charge. The light runs in three different modes, low, high, or a distress mode where it flashes, costs only $15.99, is collapsible, lightweight and has a one-year lifespan. Well done Mpowerd, Luci seems a great tech and design innovation in that it solves a problem in a very elegant and simple way.
