BioLite Energy brings solar lighting & more to campsites, sheds & backpacks

Techstination feature for Tuesday, April 3, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    If it is spring, it must be time to talk about some tech for the outdoors.    And BioLite Energy is at it again with  new products that combine solar energy with lighting.    The new SunLight sells for just 25 dollars and provides a hundred lumens of lighting in a palm sized lantern that charges in the sun or via USB and can give you more than two days of light on a charge.   Then there’s the Solar Home 620.   Director of Marketing Erica Rosen…

“It’s a small kit that’s comprised of a six watt panel, three hanging lights that each come with individual on off switches, and those can daisy chain together.   And then those are powered off of the central control box which houses a twenty watt hour battery.”

It has a built in light, FM radio and MP3 player too.   And the whole set up costs under 150 dollars.   Find them at BioLiteEnergy.com.
