The fun and functional lantern arrives just in time for the holidays at a great price point.

Brooklyn, NY (October 4, 2023) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – BioLite, an innovator in off-grid renewable energy solutions, will release their latest rechargeable lantern offering with AlpenGlow Mini, a palm-sized lantern that packs a punch when it comes to luminosity and an array of captivating color modes. Just in time for the holiday season, this delightful and functional lantern comes in at an unbeatable price of just $39.95.

The AlpenGlow Mini is a testament to BioLite’s commitment to designing and innovating portable, versatile lighting solutions. This lantern is about the size of a slider and weighs only 98g, making it the ideal companion for outdoor adventures, travel, and backyard spaces.

With four distinct lighting modes, AlpenGlow Mini is designed to deliver mood-based and task-based lighting to all adventures, be it at home or in the backcountry. For instance, the “Warm White Mode” leverages ChromaReal LEDs, providing broad-spectrum light that renders colors accurately and eliminates the commonly experienced harsh blue tones from LEDs. This mode is visually pleasing and highly practical for outdoor activities such as nighttime cooking and photography. Additionally, users will appreciate the ability to select from a spectrum of “Single Color Modes,” one of which is a red light mode excellent for nighttime vision and activities like reading and prepping camp before bed. Finally, AlpenGlow Mini ushers in a festive vibe through the lantern’s dynamic “Horizon Mode,” a blended color series that can cycle slowly to soothe or speed up to party, all at the push of a button.

The AlpenGlow Mini boasts several tactical features, including an integrated ‘bungee strap’ system allowing users to place the light precisely where it’s needed. Use the bungee loop to hang from hooks or open branches, or utilize the node closure to affix securely to poles, bags, and more. Finally, the convenience of USB-C charging ensures you can effortlessly recharge the lantern at camp using the cable you have on hand and eliminating the need to carry multiple cords.

“These lanterns will earn a spot in any camping pack thanks to just how much functionality they fit into such a small space,” said Erica Rosen, VP of Marketing at BioLite. “Solid illumination, fun color modes, flexible setup, it’s all there. We’re thrilled to introduce these just before the holiday season and are confident it’s a stocking stuffer that will make people smile.”

The AlpenGlow Mini is available in four colors, expanding BioLite’s beloved AlpenGlow lantern line. Loved by customers for its stunning lighting modes, practicality both in the backcountry and at home, and user-friendly interface, the AlpenGlow Mini is the latest addition to this award-winning lineup.
