“I live way up in the mountains and completely off the grid so solar power management is critical for me. My two favorite items are my RailLights (clamped to the railing of my small deck for summertime evenings out) and LightCaps (used pretty much full time for inside reading and eating when I don’t want to tap into my main power system). Brilliant products for someone like me.”
“Since I travel over 100,000 miles a year I seem to always wind up somewhere without electricity. My savior has been my LightCap water bottle. Not only do I always have a liter of clean water, but I also have a nightlight and reading light where ever I am in the world without worrying about charging plug adapters or batteries. It’s the best!”

“We’ve taken a bunch of LightCaps on every Grand Canyon trip we’ve done in the past 4 years and they are without a doubt the best and most talked about item we carry. We give one to each customer and over half have requested to purchase more by the end of the trip. The LightCap is the perfect river expedition accessory – sturdy, versatile and incredibly useful. We used the new LightCap300 on our trip this January and the brightness amazed everyone. Despite the shorter days (for charging) we got several hours of light each night. Good job on a great product!!!”

“At first I was skeptical about the brightness and usefulness of a water bottle with a light in it. As it turned out, the LightCap was incredibly bright and useful! We’ve used them as our only lanterns on multi-day trips down the Escalante, Delores and Colorado Rivers for the past two years with no problems. They charge plenty each day for an evening of light. I started keeping my reading glasses, cell phone, iPod and GPS in one, using it as a waterproof container while it was charging during the day. I could easily clip it to the raft so I wouldn’t lose it, and if it ever fell in the water, it floats. Our clients love your product and many have returned for subsequent trips with their own.”
Owner, Slickrock Expeditions
“I’ve been testing your new LightCap300 bottle/lantern for the past 3 months and I have to say you’ve got a real winner. It is much brighter than the older version, the switch is better, and it seems to charge much faster. We use it on the river, in the camper, and of course trying to find Dane when he’s out messing around at night.”
“We’re presently at Camp 2 on Everest waiting for our weather window to go for the summit. I’m sitting in my tent reading by the amazingly bright light from the LightCap300 you gave me. This is a great product and I know you’ll sell a ton of them. I’m recommending that all our clients bring one along. While I can’t keep water in it at this altitude (it’s -10F at night!), I can still use the cap as a solar flashlight and it charges great while hanging from my pack during the day. Cool product!”
Owner, Adventures International
“Everyone raved about my LightCap that I took on my three week trip to Bhutan last fall. Even legendary mountaineer Lou Whittiker (owner of Rainier Mountaineering and the first American to summit Everest from the north side) who was along on our trip thought it was the coolest gadget he’d seen in a while. He loved the idea that it didn’t need batteries which is perfect for long trips. He went right out an actually bought one when we got back, and that says a lot.”

“Thanks so much for the LightCap you gave me for my recent river expedition to Nepal. We actually made it down the Kali Gandaki River for a first descent. The LightCap was the hit of the expedition, as we camped in remote villages along the way. Other than our headlamps (until the batteries went dead) and small occasional campfires, the LightCap was our only night light. It worked great! At the end of the expedition I gave it to Raju Bista, a member of the Mustangi royal family and board member of the Gyalpo Jimge Foundation that is working to promote education and childcare projects in the upper Mustang District. It is now his prized possession… so I’ll be needing another one!”

“I have to tell you how awesome the Lightcap 300 was down the Grand Canyon. Since you can’t have fires in the canyon like you would a normal campsite, this handy water bottle became the center of camp at which everyone gathered around. It seemed like more light was dispersed when it was turned upside-down so that’s how we had it in the sand every night. It was the topic of conversation over and over again, each one ending in the question, “Where can we get one?””

“Gotta love the LightCap, a drinking bottle with a build-in solar-powered LED lamp. It puts out a soft white glow that’s perfect for reading—or a funky red light when the mood dictates some real ambience.”
