An extraordinary amount of research, design, technology, and innovation goes into the creation of every Goal Zero product, from the earliest CAD drawings to the final phases of production. In our From the Engineers series, we get a behind-the-scenes look at the development of our portable power, solar, and lighting products, straight from the engineers who design them.
The original Light-A-Life was created to fulfill a need that our founders saw in rural Africa. It has been a product in our line up since we became a company and has been used in unique off-grid situations all throughout the world. From base camps in the Himalaya to rural African huts the Light-A-Life has been a dependable source of light for those who need it.
We began seeing ways to improve the product early on and our engineers began tinkering with a redesign concept. The Light-A-Life 350 is a complete overhaul and improvement on the original and we are extremely proud of it's design. It is a much better user experience than the original with a build in cord management system, 350 Lumen light with high/low settings and an adjustable shade for lantern or focus light.
The Light-A-Life 350 is built to be used with our Sherpa and Yeti line, but can also be powered from a 12V car port using the included adapter. We have also built in a carabiner and magnets to make it easy to hang anywhere you might be. You can also chain up to eight lanterns.
