Just in time for the weather to be warm enough to let us crawl out of hiding and venture into the great outdoors, a new high-tech camping light has been developed to light our way. And, it's also useful in the home, for those with more indoor-themed adventures ahead.
Created by Snow Peak, an outdoor equipment company known for their innovative technology and creative design, the new "Tulip Lantern" is just that: it uses a patented focusing lens that automatically adjusts the light beam.
The lantern uses 250 Lumen LED bulbs, whose steam of light is determined by gravity-- the beam changes depending on the position of the lamp, and can be used hanging in nature or on a table inside, and anything in between.
According to the designers, "the snake-like stem allows you to bend and point the light in any direction. This versatile light has already become a favorite among many who are looking for a lantern to replace their aging bulky propane lantern."
When on a low setting, the lamp's battery can last for over 100 hours. The Tulip Lantern will be available later this March.
