BioLite’s AlpenGlow lamps are colorful, rechargeable lanterns perfect for the outdoors. Each one features a built-in battery pack to recharge your devices. The AlpenGlow 250 is available for US$59.95 and the AlpenGlow 500 is US$79.95.
I’ve been testing out these lamps for the past few weeks, and although this isn’t a full review I think they’re great products to hang in your backyard or bring with on a camping trip.

ChromaReal is an LED technology that BioLite uses for applications where complete and accurate lighting is important. ChromaReal has a Color-Rendering Index (CRI) of 90 or higher. CRI is a measure of how full-spectrum the emitted light is and how true colors will appear. When using at night, ChromaReal helps colors pop, textures stand out, and finishes have more depth and luster.
