Sidiou Solar Camping Light – High Brightness Rechargeable Lantern
‘Solar powered light and charging station.’
Looking like something out of a dystopian movie, the Sidiou is certainly futuristic, stacking 30 LEDs in total to produce a solid block of light that charges during the day using the built-in solar panel. You can charge your phone and other devices using the Sidiou, as well, as it comes with a USB port and charger cable. A bit of an unconventional shape, and the Sidiou doesn’t hang like many of the others, but if you’re not concerned about that, then it’s a great light.
The Sidiou Solar Camping Light isn’t as pretty as some of the other lights here, but the build quality is decent. It’s made from durable plastic, and is designed to be flipped to the solar panel side during the day, and to stand on end or flat to light at night.
We’ve got no complaints about the materials or their quality here. Mostly plastic, the Sidiou Solar Camping Light is lightweight and fine for regular weekends away. A great contender in our review of best solar lanterns
The solar panel covers most of the back part of the Sidiou, so it charges fairly quickly. Once fully charged, the light has a maximum on time of around 6 hours, so plenty if you’re just using it for the evening, and intend to charge it again the following day.
