I love watching the show Shark Tank on ABC. I truly like seeing what products like LuminAid does, and if they affect the Sharks in any way. Mark Cuban believed in them, and so do I, and I am happy to be able to have a chance to share this review with all of you today.
I like innovative products. I like things that are inspired out of need and function. LuminAid not only created products that can help us all stay in the light, but also gives us a chance to help light the world by giving us an opportunity for us to donate one to someone who could benefit from it around the globe.
LuminAID PackLite 16
This is a re-design of their original product. This new and improved version takes their original concept to the next level. Having tested this one myself, I can honestly say it is one of the best designed and manufactured products I have seen in some time. As you will see in some of the photos I share, you will see it in it’s folded up form, unfolded, inflated, and then functioning. It was extremely easy to use, all I did was blow it up with a good burst of air from my lungs, and it was ready to go. It already had a charge to it, so needing to have it in the sun was not required to test it. Being that it can hold a charge for some time, it is extremely efficient. Check out some of the best features of it below.
- Up to 32 Hours on Flashing setting, which is perfect to use for emergency situations. If you are lost, or roadside with a flat tire, you can use this as a signaling device.
- 6 Hours LED light on Extra Bright setting. 10 Hours LED light on High setting. 30 Hours LED light on Low setting.
- Fully recharges in 7 hours of Direct Sunlight.
- Waterproof up to 1 meter deep and can float, imagine being able to use these in the pool, for midnight dipping, or in a hot tub, or tethered to a rope in a lake?
- For an extra $10 donation, you can provide one of these to someone who would need it around the world. Help make a difference.
LuminAID PackLite 12
This is the one I like the best. This LuminAid Packlite, is compact in form, but expands into a lantern shaped cube. Perfect for Tents, Campers, using it as a light source if you have a broken down car or SUV. No matter what you use it for, imagine a design that is built tough, and meant to last. With the adjustable strap that keeps it closed, it can be used to hang from a back pack, an emergency first aid bag, or from a loop in the top of the tent, or maybe even a tree branch. With all the purposes that it has, having a couple of these in different locations would be important to make sure you are ready for anything. This is going into my Emergency First Aid bag I keep in my Nissan X-terra. Check out some of the features below.
- Up to 32 Hours on the Flashing setting which is great for those situations where you might need to use it as a beacon, to help others try and find you if you were lost, or broken down somewhere.
- 6 Hours LED light on Extra Bright setting. 8 Hours LED light on High setting, 12 Hours LED light on Low setting.
- Fully Recharges in 7 hours of direct sunlight.
- Just like the other sized LuminAid Light it is Waterproof, and can float.
- And for an extra $10 you too can donate one of these to be used by relief efforts around the world.
Check out the video review from Youtube of me testing it in Flashing Mode. Be sure to share the review and video with others. ~Tom
So should you make the leap and make this part of your home, camping excursion, or emergency first aid kit? I say yes. With how its made, it’s many uses, and the fact that it runs on good Solar Energy which is free, an investment into the LuminAid Portable Solar Powered Lights would be good for you, your family, or get them as a gift for someone who would benefit from them.
Do you watch Shark Tank? Do you remember seeing the girls on the show pitch these? and Mark Cuban making a deal with them?
