When doing backpacking or outdoor camping, a portable solar lantern could be a handy tool. It provide much-needed light in the night with the help of sunlight.

Once I was in the wild with my friends for camping. I had a solar lamp which I thought could help me in the night. But the lantern drains battery very fast. Within just 2 hours, I was out with light. That’s a huge problem.

I thought to update so that you don’t face the same problem.

Working hours are the most important things to check before buying a solar lamp. You must make sure that the light bought could run at least 4-5 hours one a complete charge.

This could give you must need time to set up your camp area.

Brightness is another aspect of light that can’t be ignored.

All the solar lamp uses LED lights that produce maximum brightness with minimum energy. This is the things that you must check.

Some LED’s are low quality and hence doesn’t illuminate much.
