Outdoor, portable lighting usually takes two forms: flashlights and lanterns. But the Luminoodle adds another option – a five foot strip of LED lights that is portable and flexible, and sort of like Christmas lights but….much brighter. It is totally waterproof and dustproof, IPX6 rated. You can hang it from trees, wrap it around objects, or stuff it into the diffused storage bag that doubles as a lantern. There are sliding magnets, universal ties and a utility loop for hanging convenience, and when packed down it’s roughly the size of a softball.
It’s powered by a completely rechargeable 3400 MAH lithium battery, and puts out an impressive 180 lumens – that’s more than enough light for basic camp setups. There are over 15 different colors, 10 brightness settings and 3 strobe and fade modes for endless custom lighting combos.
While it’s not your typical lantern, by any means, the Luminoodle is a truly versatile piece of outdoor equipment, and should earn a spot in your pack for camping trips and adventures.
