Emergency Lighting Under 9 Bucks
Affordable emergency lighting is now at your fingertips!
The Luna LED Light is an awesome, very cheap prepping item I would highly recommend to have not only for the home, in case of a power cut, but to keep in a bug out bag and for camping! As you can see in the photo above I powered the Luna by various USB devices from my Laptop to my hand crank Ambient Weather Emergency Radio. All gave the same lumens and steady light.
The Luna LED Light is great low cost lighting system for any camper who wants a low current drain and effective camp light. It works extremely well with the Goal 10, Guide 10 battery packs with the USB port. There is more than sufficient light for a tent or small camp space at a 20 hour operation time on the Guide 10 battery pack.
The Luna LED Light is a must have for emergency situations. I say this because any USB device can power the light. You can buy many devices, some for only dollars that recharge phones, heck you can even make devices to power the light like this article I posted recently.
When bugging out this will not light up your path a great deal as it’s only 20 lumens. This is designed for home and camping lighting, so if you have to bug out, this could save your flashlight batteries for when you need the brighter light. I use mine all the time and LOVE it.
The Luna 1-Watt LED USB Stick Light from Goal Zero is handy to illuminate anything from a keyboard to the interior of your camping tent. The Luna’s low power draw makes it a long-lasting light solution. It features 10 LED bulbs that draw only a single watt of power via a USB port, giving you an efficient light source wherever you need it.
10 bright, efficient LED bulbs only draw a single watt of power
Efficient, USB-Powered Illumination
Packed into the Luna’s small, stick-like design are ten 1-watt LED bulbs for simple, efficient lighting wherever you need it. It’s rated for 20,000 hours of use, for a long life of illumination while on the road or outdoors.
Multiple Power Sources
The Luna LED light can be powered from any available PC port on your laptop or DC inverter. You can also use Goal Zero portable power packs such as the Sherpa 50 or the Sherpa 120 (sold separately) to power the Luna.
The 9″, snake-like bendable cord lets you secure the Luna LED light around objects for easier positioning, making it convenient for typing, reading, writing, and more.
Carry It Anywhere
The highly portable size of the Luna light makes it a cinch to carry with you wherever you go. The slim stick-like design makes it easy to slide down into a backpack or carrying bag, a toolbox, or a glove compartment. It’s ideal as a light source during camping trips, but can function as an easy-to-use LED light wherever you need illumination.
