Goal Zero Light-a-Life

Multiple Light-a-Life lights can be daisy chained together to illuminate an entire room during a power outage. You can power a Light-a-Life with any Goal Zero recharger with a 12-volt output.

Keep the lights on

Goal Zero's Light-a-Life lantern is a great lighting choice when standard household lights aren't available. The LAL produces a soft, lantern-type light that is still surprisingly bright. The cool-running LED light draws little power and can run for hours off one of Goal Zero's rechargers. A single lantern provides plenty of light for a tent, and you can string several lights together to keep a backyard or campsite illuminated.

Product Highlights:

  • bright 3-watt, low power-draw LED lantern light
  • can be powered by any Goal Zero recharger with a 12-volt output, or by using the included car cigarette lighter adapter

Great light

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this light to replace my leaky white gas lantern. I use it when I cook on our rv camping trips in the desert. It puts out more than enough light for my grill and table. It draws very little current and is very convenient.
