CHICAGO (PRWEB) August 24, 2020
Chicago-based solar startup LuminAID released the latest addition to its line of solar-powered, phone charging lanterns. The PackLite Titan 2-in-1 Phone Charger is LuminAID’s most versatile lantern yet, and features a self-inflating design that allows for easy expansion with one simple twisting motion.
The PackLite Titan is available to purchase in REI stores in the US and MEC stores in Canada, as well as through LuminAID's own website, luminaid.com. Designed to withstand tough environments, LuminAID lights are a must-have for campers and explorers. As REI and MEC customers are some of the most experienced outdoor enthusiasts, the retailers make an ideal launch partner for LuminAID’s latest innovation.
The launch of the PackLite Titan 2-in-1 Phone Charger comes right at LuminAID’s 10-year anniversary. In the last decade, LuminAID pioneered the solar inflatable lantern category, securing a patent on the technology. With the release of the PackLite Max 2-in-1 Phone Charger in 2017, the startup pioneered the 2-in-1 inflatable phone charger lantern category, as well.
“LuminAID is always looking to do bigger, better, and brighter things with our solar-powered designs,” co-founder Andrea Sreshta said. “Based on feedback from our customers and humanitarian partners, we’ve shortened the solar charge time without sacrificing power.” This drive for innovation is reflected in the PackLite Titan 2-in-1 Phone Charger by enhancing the technology that makes LuminAID unique in the solar lantern industry.
Following the PackLite Max Phone Charger and the PackLite Hero Supercharger, the PackLite Titan 2-in-1 Phone Charger is LuminAID’s latest solar lantern with integrated phone charging capabilities. Owners of a PackLite Titan 2-in-1 Phone Charger can:
- Fully charge the lantern in just 16 hours via a highly efficient solar panel, which decreases charge times by 10 hours due to a 60% increase in surface area
- Inflate the lantern with an intuitive twisting motion
- Charge USB-compatible devices for 2 to 3 full charges
- Switch to a red LED light mode to enhance night-time vision and reading
