How to Use Luci

Step 1: Charge Luci in direct sunlight or incandescent light. With the solar panel up, let Luci soak in the light. Luci fully charges in 8 hours of direct sunlight. Step 2: Inflate Luci by opening the valve and pinching the bottom while pulling up; then bite on the valve and simultaneously blow into the valve until fully inflated; close the valve and push it down. Step 3: Light up Luci by pressing the on/off button – once for bright lighting, twice for super bright and three times for emergency flashing. Press a fourth time to shut her off. Step 4: Deflate Luci by opening the valve and pinching the bottom while pushing down.

In the hands of people that do not have and have never had electricity this is a life changing product. But, lets rein in the claims a bit. It takes direct sun to get a full charge and from my tests on the 6 lanterns that I bought it is about an hour per hour trade off, hour of sun, hour of good light. On a day of fairly bright overcast my lantern just charged enough to give a little more than an hour of bright light and I am at 9 degrees north latitude in Panama. On the sunny days I get 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 hours of light that everyone sitting around my four foot round table can easily read by, even my 71 year old eyes have no problem. I would like to get more of these lights into the hands of the Indian people here, many of these villages have never had light after the sun went down. This is not darkest Africa, this is Panama, you know the canal, the huge new Trump Hotel, beyond Panama city are many that still commute by paddling dugout canoes. Anyway I will be ordering more Luci Lights.

Up Date: I bought a 100 more Luci lights that are being distributed to the indigenous people in Bocas Del Toro through the school system. as I said before with sunlight it is about an hour by hour trade off. To someone that has never had electricity in their home it is a life changing product. Donations have now paid for most of these and I will be ordering 100 more next week. Bocasgary@yahoo.com

The idea of a solar powered lantern is a great idea, but after a few months of testing, I found the solar panel doesn't do a great job of charging the unit, even after a couple of days in direct sunlight. I don't question the build quality, which is fine, but I suspect the solar panel lacks the efficiency needed to fully charge the battery. After putting it in direct sunlight for 8 hours, I was only able to get 2-3 hours of light. I don't think the technology is quite there yet. . .

I like my Luci light and have recommended it to others. Besides the obvious uses for emergencies, camping and survival, I expect to use it on the patio.
But, don't expect "a minimum of 6-12 hours of light"... USABLE light. Maybe half of that. After that, the light is quite weak, maybe giving as much light as the face of a cell phone.
Don't ditch your battery-powered lights, as Luci needs solid, direct sunlight to charge effectively.

I bought a few of these for Christmas gifts and one for myself. I'm very keen on anything alternative and I even had a couple sent to HAITI with MPOWRD's Gift Giving program. I was hoping to keep mine in my window, inflated, and charging every day so that I'd have a quick source of light if the power went out and I'd know right where it was.

About 2 weeks after I got mine, it stopped working. I had only turned it on and off maybe a half dozen times and then it just sat in the window. When I tried to turn it on nothing happened. I contacted the manufacturer and they said to take it outside and leave it in the sun all day to fully charge it. I KNEW that wasn't the problem. It was dead as a doornail and for no reason. It was charging daily in a sunny window and I had barely used it!

Long story short, I sent it back and got a replacement. Happy as a clam...until yesterday. Same thing. Thought "I should test that light and make sure it still works!" Nothing. This time I had turned it on and off even FEWER times! I took it outside where it got at least 5 hours of full sun. Nothing. DEAD.

I'm not going to bother with a return and replacement just to get my hopes up and have them dashed again.

I'm so disappointed with this product.

I bought six of these to give grandchildren for birthday presents, inspired by my oldest one who likes to stay up late reading in bed but who uses up flashlight batteries like no tomorrow when she falls asleep. No more problem with that! And two weeks after they arrived our power went out for several days with winter storms...and there they were, charging up nicely on the kitchen table and allowing us to read the evenings and nights away without worrying that the cats would knock them over, unlike candles or oil lamps. Maybe there's a little quality control thing going on-- one takes a charge poorly and lasts for about 3 hours, and its sister, charging on the same table side-by-side, easily lasts 7 hours. The others have all been good for 6-8 hours with no problem. I love Luci!

I gave Luci to my family as gifts and they were so impressed! They already used the light during an unexpected power outage. I also took Luci on a recent work trip to Ethiopia where electricity was unreliable. I actually set up the light one day in the office when the power went out so we could continue working. I also showed Luci to families that don't have light in their homes and they couldn't believe that it didn't burn their hands or cause indoor smoke. Such an amazing and important invention.

Can't say enough about this product. During Hurricane Sandy, we were without power for a week. We were fortunate enough to have one for every room. The lantern gives off enough illumination to provide more than adequate lighting for most everyday chores. I've taken them camping, walking the dogs and jogging at night. Fabulous! And all it needs to recharge is to be put by a window during daylight hours. I highly recommend this innovative product.
