As helpful as it can be, campsite area lighting is not high on your average outdoorsman’s list of priorities. And that’s because, most of the time, the work is not worth the reward. Well, now you can have all the convenience of electric illumination with basically none of the work, thanks to BioLite’s new SiteLight XL.
Rather than struggling with stringing up a bunch of dim bulbs around the nearest tree, this handy device centralizes the lighting into one large soft orb of light with up to 300 lumens of dimmable ambient output. All you have to do is string it up, plug it into any USB power source up to 15 feet away, and (voilà!) you’ve got yourself an illuminated campsite. Best of all, this little 3.2-ounce light fixture is made of fabric and can collapse down into about the size of a sandwich bag for safe keeping in your travels. For just $30, you can know all the pleasures of site lighting with none of the associated annoyances.
