SunJack Waterproof LightStick (Review)

DSC04606

Just as there are situations where a good flashlight or headlamp is needed to shine a focused beam of light on an area, there are also times where a good quality floodlight is required to provide a wider swath of illumination. The new SunJack Waterproof LightStick completely fills this specific need!

I was able to test this light out while on our two weekDSC04573 (2) holiday trip to Missouri. I found myself using it pretty consistently around the house, along with a couple of night exploration trips to a local area with several caves. Featuring 3 brightness settings (plus an emergency strobe), the LightStick did well at illuminating every area I put it up against without putting a significant drain on the internal 5200mAh battery. In the future, I would really like to see this light with a larger internal battery option down the road to compensate for the built-in 2A USB port for charging cell phones and other electronic devices with.

And while this light has an IP68 waterproof rating to about 6 feet, I opted against testing it out in the flowing spring coming from the cave system as the outside temperature was a crisp 28 degrees. That’s a test I’ll have to run once we get back to our 86 degree Florida weather and I’m not battling a head cold. I try to spend as much time outdoors as my schedule allows, and I can easily see this particular LightStick holding an important role while out fishing, camping, hiking, caving or even unforeseen emergencies both indoors and outdoors.

DSC04590As you can tell from my short video at the end of this review, it does seem that the Medium brightness setting appears to only be “slightly” lower than the High setting, and the Low setting provides just enough light to read a book by or give a little illumination inside of a hiking pack or tent. The High light setting is exemplary and provides a VERY bright area of light!

Another really nice feature that seems to have gone unnoticed is the Glow-In-The-Dark power button. I can’t tell you how many times that I have been unable to locate a light at the bottom of my hiking pack or in with my camping gear. This gently illuminated button makes finding your light amongst the rest of your equipment a little easier, which in turn allows you to quickly turn the light on when you need it. I also appreciate that the light bulb does not wrap completely around the LightStick, so you will not mistakenly mess up your night vision while using it in complete darkness. The portability and options that this area light offers, along with the ability to use it in so many different situations, makes it one of the more useful lights in my kit.

 

20151231_180730All in all, it is clear that SunJack has put a great deal of thought and care into the production of this LightStick. I also have the SunJack CampLight and have yet to find one complaint or issue with either of these lights. This is one company that I am more than happy to endorse for their great quality products!!
