LEDS remain dimmed when off?1 answer

Hi guys, I've just got this and unsure if this is meant to occur but when the unit is off there are what appear to be 6 LEDs that remain 'on' but very dim on one side of the lantern where the battery indicator is. Is this meant to occur, are the LEDs meant to stay dimly lit or is this a fault? Thanks for your help.

G'day Matt,

I've just had a chat with our assistant store manager, Jake, who has a BioLite BaseLantern himself. He said that his stays dimly illuminated for about a minute after he switches it off but that it doesn't stay on permanently. If yours is staying on permanently, then it might well be faulty. Feel free to give us a buzz on 1300 914 007 and we can help you out.

can this set up be recharged from another 12volt source? it seems great but the high power run time is not enough for a few days. thanks

G'day Alex,

It can. The BioLite BaseLantern XL is charged via a Micro USB cable.

How many string lights does it power1 answer

Can't seem to find a basic answer to how many sets of string lights the base unit powers amongst all the bluetooth twaddle. Is it one set of two string lights (total, 2 lights) or 2 sets of 2 lights (total, 4 lgihts) and thus has two separate ports for each set of lights. Ta.

G'day Sam,

Great question. From my investigation, the Biolite BaseLantern XL can power 4 SiteLights. This would equate to a set of 2x lights running from the 2 available ports on the BaseLantern.
