“They put out a decent light that you can read by. You can hang them on things or set them down on a flat surface. They don't take long to charge. AND they don't cost much.”

“This solar lantern is yet another success from d.light. It is small (you can set it on your windowsill to charge) and supremely portable. It's also pretty durable. Ours has taken quite a few tumbles, and my two-year-old loves to get a hold of it and toss it around as well, lol. Still works like a charm.”
Peter Faden, June 2, 2013

“Firstly, and most importantly, the d.light lantern comes at half the price of any other similar technology. Because it is designed to serve millions around the world, who do not have continuous access to power, the lantern is made in a very affordable fashion. It is highly robust, made to resist damage.”
