Bluetooth Lantern & Power Hub

Meet the world’s first flatpack lantern that combines breakthrough edge-lighting with Bluetooth connectivity to bring you a portable lighting solution that doubles as your own miniature smartgrid. No bigger than a sandwich, the BaseLantern can light large group settings, charge phones and other devices, and offer real-time battery feedback so you get the most from your off-grid energy.

Your phone is one of the best remote controls out there, so we built a custom Low Energy Bluetooth app that connects with your BaseLantern and transforms it into your own miniature smartgrid.

    Big Light in a Small Space

    1.  Edge-Lighting: A unique textured pattern on the lens reflects the LEDs on a steep angle creating soft, even light along the entire panel without requiring a cavernous space typical of most lanterns.

    2.  High-Efficiency LEDs: White and RGB LEDs located at base of the lens provide warmth control and thousands of color options.

    3.  Rechargeable Battery: A 7800 mAh battery maximizes burn time and gives the ability to share light to the daisy-chainable BioLite SiteLights. USB-charge out powers your gear.

    4. Stainless Steel Housing: Thinner and even more durable than plastic, the stainless steel housing works double time as a heat sink, helping the LEDs run more efficiently.
