These Chic Solar Lights Are Beach Must-Haves
Is there a more gorgeous hour on the beach than twilight? We love lingering after sunset, soaking in the afterglow of an epic day, watching the first stars sparkle in the sky. What we don't love is getting stuck in the sand in the dark, rummaging around for lost sunscreen tubes and the contents of an overturned purse. While an iPhone flashlight will do in a pinch, creating true ambiance after dark when you are off the grid isn't easy — unless you think outside of the box. When we heard about solar lights that could glow up an outdoor beach party or unelectrified festival tent, we needed to know more, stat. Mpowerd is a company that knows life doesn't stop when the sun goes down, and they've created a solar-powered, inflatable light that can go virtually anywhere that you do and turn the power of the sun into after-hours illumination.
We've stocked up on their signature Luci lights and made them our go-to for glamping and a must-have for our beach bag. Since the lights pack flat and weigh virtually nothing, they're easy to stow or keep in your car for an off-road adventure under the stars. Coachella will certainly never be the same, nor will endless beach days that turn into bonfire nights. We love that the idea for the Luci light came from a desire to create a renewable energy source alternative to kerosene and that the company is committed to getting the lights into developing countries where electricity isn't a given. They're really cool, yes — but they're also crafted with a conscience.
We're so excited to share Mpowerd with The Wanderlust audience — they're a part of the travel gear selection in the latest box, which heads to Casablanca. Our hand-curated mix of travel, wellness, beauty, and style gear is shipped directly to your door chock full of goodies we know you'll be obsessed with. Are you subscribed?
