BioLite’s solar and lighting lines converge with the all-new SunLight, a durable, portable and compact (3.35” x 3.39”) light that self-charges from the power of the sun.

Offering up to 50 hours of light on a single charge, the SunLight’s integrated solar panel offers unlimited light and versatile setup so you can leave your batteries behind and free yourself from rationing your energy.

From illuminating your tent to way-finding in the dark to setting the mood for your backyard dinner, the SunLight is a simple, powerful companion for any adventure. This 100-lumen solar lantern features BioLite’s signature sundial and 360 kickstand for optimal charging. And thanks to integrated RGB LED lights inside, the SunLight allows you to pick your favorite hue or cycle through all colors automatically via Party Mode.
