Expert Advice

Solar lighting has many applications, including home use, camping use, job site use and emergency use. The lighting equipment you need will depend on how and when you plan to use your solar lights. The points below can help you choose the right equipment:

  • For casual use while camping, a small solar lantern is a good choice. Many of today’s solar lanterns feature bright, long-lasting LED bulbs that provide even, efficient illumination. Some lanterns also include extra elements such as glow in the dark control buttons and AC or USB charging options for extra versatility.
  • To illuminate larger areas, consider a full solar lighting system with external panels and multiple lamps.
  • To be safe, keep a battery-powered lantern in your pack as a backup.
  • Consider your lighting needs before you leave on a camping trip or other outing. A flood-style solar lantern is a good choice to bring if you want to light up a large area, while a flashlight or headlamp that delivers a focused beam is helpful for hiking or boating at night.
  • Solar equipment can be used to power more than just lanterns. Looking for a convenient way to power up a rechargeable battery pack for a camera or other device? DICK’S Sporting Goods offers solar accessories such as panel chargers that can be connected to lithium battery packs to keep your equipment working when no electrical outlet is available.
