When it comes to innovation in the outdoor lighting industry, Biolite are lightyears ahead. The BaseLantern XL is the first flatpack lantern that combines lighting with Bluetooth technology which provides you with your own little smart grid for charging devices.
To unlock this lantern’s full potential, hook it up to the low energy Bluetooth app that will allow you to use unlock the alarm function for early mornings, proximity activation to prevent any stumbles in the dark, and an/off dimming so you can switch your light up from the comfort of your sleeping bag or bed. The powerbank function will allow you to charge your phone, tablet and other gear thanks to the 12000 mAh battery in the BaseLantern XL. The edge to edge lighting design, provides you with 500 lumens of light, but without the bulk so it’s easily to slip into the top of your bag.
The sturdy stainless steel folding legs let you hang this light from a tree, stand it off a table, or angle the direction of light when you need it. With several different lighting modes, you can switch it red to preserve your night vision, change the light to blue to rest your eyes, or switch it to the multi-coloured light mode if you want to add some party vibes to your campsite or home.
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.
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
It can. The BioLite BaseLantern XL is charged via a Micro USB cable.
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.
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.
