Looking a like a miniature lunar spaceship, the Helix Basecamp Rechargeable from our friends at Princeton Tec will be a must-have item on your next camping trip. This cute little guy has some great features: dimmable white and red lights; recharges in 3-4 hours via an included micro-USB cord; collapses to half its height for easy packing; a built-in USB port that allows for charging your phone, GPS or other compatible devices; the option to install AA batteries in place of the lithium-ion rechargeable batteries for those times when you don’t have access to an electrical outlet for recharging; and multiple ways to hang or position it. The Helix can be used in so many different ways: remove the accordion-like lantern globe and it becomes a spotlight; fold out the legs to give you a bigger lighting area; attach the straps to the top and you can hang it from a limb or inside your tent; and built-in hooks on the legs make it easy to hang it from a tarp rope or hook. ¬†When fully charged, the Helix has an impressive running time of 5 hours on high, 18 hours on low for the white light and 7 hours on high and 22 hours on low for the red light. The Princeton Tec Helix Basecamp Rechargeable should be an essential piece of your camping kit!
