Meet the LightCap300, aka, a Solar Lamp Water Bottle Thingy

Looking for a unique, multi-purpose gift for the outdoor enthusiast in your life? (Or, perhaps, yourself?) The LightCap300 by SolLight is not only a super-bright LED solar lantern, but a water bottle and a waterproof container to store your valuables while camping, priced at $24.99.

According the company, the LightCap300 is four times brighter than their original solar-powered lantern and charges 50% faster. It makes uses of four LED lights that go from white to red to ‘off’ at the push of a waterproof button. The sealed charging system stores up to eight hours of light on a full charge, and an integrated battery sensor prevents accidental battery drain during the day. The product is constructed of BPA-free plastic, so your water won’t have that plastic aftertaste, and weighs just 9.7 ounces.
