The Baselamp XL is a game changer in off grid lighting from the supreme team at Biolite.
Not just an intelligent lantern, the Baselamp is a hub for all your outdoor power needs, effortlessly charging your multiple cameras and phones at once, or powering your campsite lighting with the addition of a SiteLight XL.
All this, crammed into a tiny package which they claim is the size of a sandwich. We think that is a Stateside sandwich, but you get the idea: they are neat in every sense.
Naturally Biolite have the sustainability angle covered: the Baselamp needs no batteries, you simply charge it up at home, or on the move using a Solar Slate.
Intelligent isn't a term routinely ascribed to lighting, so lets explain: the Baselamp includes a low power app for your phone, which unlocks some colossal features such as dimming and colour modes along with proximity activation - watch your tent light up as you approach home for the night.
