Sure you could use a flashlight. Or a lantern. Or I guess even an iPad. But SunJack's CampLight looks and acts like a real live 4W LED bulb, delivering a 270-degree beam angle of ambient lighting when plugged into any standard USB source. Wall plugs, batteries, laptops, your mom (ahhh, it's a joke like Rob Lowe and LL Cool J. Never gets old). Hang it from a tent ceiling or a tree above your campsite dinner spread and let 340 lumens, the equivalent of a 40W incandescent bulb, shed light on whether that's a calf or a butt cheek and what you've sporked up and are about to put in your mouth. The CampLight's 6000K color temperature also mimics the aesthetics of daylight.
CampLight LEDs weigh just over 3-1/2 ounces for portability superior to most camping lanterns, and are designed to be shatter-, shock-, and vibration-resistant. They include a 7' long USB cord.
