Product description Brand name and product description

The d.Light S30 is a battery-powered LED lantern charged by an integrated solar panel, which replaces d.Light’s previous S20 model. Its conical design redirects light in all directions. It can be placed upside-down on its angled top to focus light upwards and it has a metal hanging handle for carrying the lantern or hanging it up from a hook. It features two brightness settings, smart LED indicator for solar charge intensity and a glow-in-the-dark on/off button to assist in turning on the lantern at night. It is made from UV resistant plastic that makes it resistant to drops and frequent rain.

From a full day’s charging on a clear, sunny day it can provide 12 hours of light in its standard or 3 hours of light in its high brightness setting.

The product was designed and is manufactured by d.Light Design, who distributes it through a global network of importers, distributors, and retailers.
