Luci EMRG Lantern Review

Here is a quick review of the Luci EMRG lantern.  A new product from MPOWERD.  This versatile little lantern will easily fit on your backpack, pocket, glove box or first aid kit.
With 4 different light settings it is perfect for reading in camp, marking your location, or providing an emergency light source wherever it’s needed.
At 2.6 oz this little lantern is a must in camp.  It spreads light out 10 feet and is waterproof.
It takes 8 hours to charge with the solar panels attached, but it will put out 7 hours of light.  If you are concerned about the charging, no worries.  This little gems retains 95% of its charge while being stored.  But snap it to the outside of your pack and by the time you get into camp and inflate the lantern, you have light to get you through the night.
I highly recommend this lantern, and I am super impressed with the company that makes it.
Visit there site at and learn about how they are helping change the world.  They really should get into the #daretodo program.  Speaking of which, on their site you can buy this little lantern for $9.99.. and you can share one by giving one to folks in countries that lack solid power grids.  They call them “Solar impoverished countries.  You can help by providing some light.  I did.  Will you?

Have a Great Scouting Day!

Snow Peak 700 Review

sp700Well, It’s Sunday and today we are celebrating our Troops 10th Anniversary as well as Scouting’s 104th.  Every year our Troop hosts its annual Red and Green Dinner.  A celebration of the Troop and Scouting.  This year we will recognize former Troop members and have a great time looking back on the 10 years that got us where we are today.
Today, since my day is dedicated to the Troop’s Red and Green, I thought I’d share this gear review with you.
Quickly becoming my “Go to” pot/cook set again, I went away from it for some time in favor of the Imusa mug.  I still like the Imusa, it gives me some options in cooking namely the size of the pot that the Snow peak 700 does not.
For the size and weight though, it’s tough to find a better pot for backpacking and cooking single servings.
Enjoy the review, let me know what you think.  Drop us a comment.
Have a Great Scouting Day!
