HOOD RIVER, Or. - The new LightCap300 is a solar powered lantern, a one-liter BPA Free water bottle and a waterproof container for valuables all under one lid. Our custom wide mouth bottle has a 50% wider opening than standard bottles for easier cleaning, mixing, drinking and storing contents.

The LightCap300 represents the culmination of three years of customer feedback and testing. It is 20% lighter, 4 times brighter and charges 50% faster, using FastSolar™ technology, than our original solar powered lantern. The sealed charging system stores up to 8 hours of light on a full charge, the integrated light sensor prevents accidental battery drain during the day. The complete LightCap300 weighs just 9.7.oz. (275 grams). Instead of a single LED, there are now four super-bright white LEDs for 4x the light with less relative power consumption. The sealed waterproof push button switch allows you to go from white LEDs to a red LED to off.

The LightCap 300 is available in Ruby Red or Black Smoke and retails for $29.95 at many fine outdoor stores or online at

About SolLight

SolLight was founded in 2003 with the goal of designing high quality, renewable, functional solar products for the outdoor and marine environment. Our first solar product was the Original LightCap; followed with the RailLight, LightShip, LightCap200 and the SkyLight for Yakima's LoPro box. Now we have developed the LightCap300. Our founders are as passionate about designing renewable products that make sense as they are about getting out there to "test" their designs. We hope you'll enjoy our products as much as we do.

Every once in a while a really cool gadget comes along; the LightCap 300 fits the bill.
