Product Info

If you can pack a sandwich, you can pack the BioLite Base Lantern. Built with Edge-Lit technology, the 500-lumen BioLite Base Lantern provides warm, even lighting to your tent, campsite, or bedroom. If you don't need 54 hours of lantern time on your weekend backpacking trip, you can use it as a powerbank to charge up to 4 cellphones. Speaking of cellphones, you can control your BioLite Base Lantern using a bluetooth smartphone app that won't drain your phone's battery. No more getting out of bed to turn off the light.
