BioLite, the same company that made the excellent CampStove that also charges your phone, is back with a new product, BaseLantern, to tackle outdoor and campsite lighting. BaseLantern is a 500-lumen flatpack lantern that is a fraction of the size of the outdoor lanterns we grew up with, and it also packs a whole slew of new features. BioLite’s first “connected” product pairs with your iOS or Android device to give you an entire mini-smart grid you can control with the touch of a button. Remote on/off and dimming. Full color spectrum control (including Red Night Vision and Party modes). Proximity activation based on geo-location. Alarm. Sleep timer. The 7800 mAh li-ion battery that powers the 1.3lbs light can also be used to charge your USB devices or power your BioLite SiteLights.
