PLACENTIA, Calif. — The creators of the portable solar charger, SunJack, have released a type of light that will add color to any outing. The Color CampLight, a daisy-chainable USB light bulb that can change colors with the touch of a button is now available for campers everywhere.
“We’re excited to bring the power of indoor lighting, outdoors. Now people can enjoy mood lighting and create ambiance in their tent just like they would in a high-end living room,” says Harold Tan, SunJack’s chief marketing officer.
SunJack produces an array of portable solar charging products, including the SunJack 20, a foldable 20 Watt solar panel with battery backup, which was featured in Outside Magazine and the Survivalist. The unit’s efficient monocrystalline solar cells can simultaneously charge two Qualcomm Quickcharge battery packs, which fills in five hours and powers up to eight smartphones.
SunJack claims the Color CampLight is the first of its kind for outdoor adventurers. A remote control allows users to switch between 16 colors and five settings (steady, flash, strobe, fade, smooth), while adjusting brightness levels.
The Color Camplight also comes with the option to connect additional SunJack lights in a daisy chain, allowing outdoor enthusiasts the option for surround lighting.
All of SunJack’s USB LED lights are shatter, shock and vibration resistant and shine at 340 lumens or the equivalent of of a 40W incandescent bulb. The lights can be powered by any standard USB source, be it a wall plug, laptop or powerbank.
SunJack was launched in 2014 after a Kickstarter campaign, and donates solar and lighting solutions to people in developing countries. The Color CampLight retails for $20 from SunJack.com, and Amazon.com.
