OIA Awards finalist: Hydralight SuperCell Lantern

We’re excited to announce the Hydralight SuperCell Lantern has made it to the finals of the 2019 UK Outdoor Industry Awards. The awards provide an opportunity for businesses to showcase new innovations and for consumers to select their favourite outdoor products. Public voting is now open for the 2019 Outdoor Industry Awards; click here to cast your vote.

‘Top Camping Equipment’ finalist: Hydralight SuperCell Lantern

The SuperCell lantern is a true hybrid with it’s lighting and charging capabilities, combining renewable solar energy with three HydraCell energy cells to provide over 300 hours of light and power, without the need for disposable batteries.

The lantern is equipped with 24 bright LEDs to illuminate large rooms and outdoor areas, an integral solar panel, and an internal battery that recharges low voltage devices via the USB output - ideal for keeping your phone or GPS charged during off-grid adventures.

At the heart of the Hydralight lighting series is the eco-friendly HydraCell energy cell.  Each cell is designed for easy activation, impregnated with salt infusion that produces a steady electrical current once hydrated, making it ideal for emergencies.  The HydraCell can be activated at any water source and will run for hundreds of hours until the inner components become dry.  Subsequent rehydration will provide a constant power output for up to 25 years or even longer!

Three biodegradeable HydraCell energy cells are required to operate the SuperCell Lantern, delivering thirty times more power than a premium AA Alkaline battery.  The longevity of the energy cells removes the need for replacement batteries and helps to reduce millions of disposable batteries from entering landfill each year.  Made from biodegradable materials, and harnessing energy from renewable sources, the Hydralight energy series ticks a lot of boxes for a more sustainable future.

The Hydralight SuperCell Lantern will be displayed alongside the other finalist products in Hall 5 at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show (CCMS) at Birmingham’s NEC next month. You will be able to vote for your favourite product from each category at the event, or vote online here today.

Come and visit us on Stand 5519 at the CCMS where you will be able to view the full Hydralight series of multi-use flashlights, lanterns and powerpacks.  You won’t want to miss us – we will be gifting a mini Hydralight emergency light to the first 100 customers on the stand.
