Features and Benefits of Solar-LED emergency lantern options available in the market
For most people the biggest challenge in using Solar power at home is to have space to install the solar panels. Especially people living in apartment complexes find it hard to get space for it. The best thing about solar-LED emergency lights is the small size of solar panels. In fact some of the lights have in-built solar panels for charging the batteries.
Most Solar-LED emergency light options available in the market are portable and lightweight. The heaviest one available weights about 1.2 Kgs.

With 8 to 12 hours of charging these lights run for 4-100 hours depending on the brightness it is kept at. Hours of operation are low for high brightness and high for low brightness.

The maximum amount of light or brightness produced is equivalent to a 5 Watt CFL that is sufficient to create visibility in a regular room (about 100-150 sq ft).

Can even be used for precision work during power cuts. Just that one has to sit closer to the light.

Available at much affordable prices: ranging from Rs 400 to Rs 1500.

Models available that are wall mountable making it easy to light a room during power outages.

The solar panels and LEDs last for long (about 50,000 hrs of usage). The only regular change needed is for the batteries.

Some of these lanterns also come along with mobile charging units and can thus help in charging mobile phones during power cuts.

Most of them are also available with AC power charging and thus can be charged with regular power connection as well.

Most of them do not need any installation and thus no professional help is required for them. They can be used straight out of the box.

Always check for weather resistant and rain resistant options while buying, as these features are useful in regular use.
