You’re gonna love the Eco friendly, outdoor lighting options from 

Lovely both day and night, these solar lanterns will add a festive charm to your outdoor space this summer. Each lantern stores up free sun during the day and gives a wonderful glow at night.

My review comments – The three Soji™ lanterns I’ve reviewed all came in a flat box that I’ve saved for winter storage. The lanterns were super easy to assemble and each included a stainless steel hanging handle, a built in light sensor, one AAA rechargeable battery and a dual LED light. The Soji™ original also came with a base unit for table top use.

The lanterns are sizes 10×10 round, 7×15 oblong, and 5×7.5 cylinder and are made from a durable nylon. I usually try to rescue them from inclement weather; however, they have managed with a few storms no worse for wear.



The key to enjoying these is to remember that they need direct sunlight during daytime charging. They will not give lots of light. They are primarily decorative giving a bit of a down-light and a soft glow. Enjoy the ambiance!

Solar energy and rechargeable batteries are two environmentally friendly features that I love about this Solar Goose product.

This is the 7 LED Ultimate Emergency Kit.

This kit includes the Ultimate Solar Base Charger, Ultimate 7 LED Head, Ultimate 10 LED Flexible Tube Light, and the Ultimate Mobile Charger Kit.

The Ultimate Base Charger is the main component housing the solar panels. Just keep it in the sunlight to charge and it’s ready to go. Solar power is, of course, a renewable energy source. Free, too. The Base Charger also uses 2 AA Ni-Mh rechargeable batteries. Rechargeable batteries last a long time, saving you money. They keep more disposable batteries out of the landfill and are easy to recycle when they eventually run out.

I use the flashlight the most. (my “light saber”)

This is an environmentally friendly lighting and charging product. It is definitely useful for everyday lighting needs or during those dreadful power outages. In addition to using solar energy and rechargeable batteries, it uses bright, long lasting LED lights. The Base Charger’s end cap is magnetic servicing another useful, and fun, function. The Mobile Charge Kit includes 10 adapters. It doesn’t include an adapter for the iPhone but that can be purchased separately if needed. This is a nicely constructed product that helps you to go green and save energy.
