Solar Lanterns You Can Depend on Once the Sun Sets

If there's anything in your gear pack you can always depend on, it's solar lanterns.

Thanks to physics and a man named Edmond Becquerel, outdoors enthusiasts are able to buy survival and camping items that use solar energy to charge.

Solar lanterns have panels on them that receive a full charge from the sun. Just like emergency candles, they're a vital tool for camping trips.

Some solar powered lanterns are waterproof. You can even take advantage of hanging solar lanterns, and put them over your campsite or backyard patio for some efficient outdoor lighting.

Jar lights definitely serve their purpose on backpacking trips, but they are a lot more stylish, too. If you're looking for an efficient way to light up your yard for security purposes, jar lanterns are great.

It might be a good idea to look into water-resistant or waterproof outdoor solar lanterns. The weather can be unpredictable, so make sure your solar lights aren't susceptible to rain.

This four-pack is great for camping trips. Give a mason jar LED lantern to each person so they'll have their own light source for late night bathroom trips.

I love that there's an on/off function that automatically turns on the camping lantern when it's dark, and off during the day.

5. LuminAID Solar Inflatable Lanterns

If you're looking for a bright light, you'll love this solar inflatable lantern. It's also collapsible and has a 24 hour battery life when fully charged. You can use solar power or a USB port to charge it. They shine bright at 50-75 lumens.

Charging time does vary on each lantern. As long as they're in direct sunlight each day, you should have a dependable light source each night. If you're not using them for hunting or camping, they make great light sources for emergency situations.
