    Nitecore® LR10 is a pocket-sized USB rechargeable lantern with 3 brightness levels up to 250 lumens plus 3 rescue modes and a runtime of 38 hours on low. It’s smaller and lighter than most solar lanterns, just 2.12 oz (60.2 g) and the size of a travel deodorant. And to recharge, simply plug into a power bank.

    Nine high-CRI LEDs provide evenly diffused, 360° illumination. So you can light up your cooking area while preparing and enjoying dinner. Light up your social circle while recalling the day and discussing your plans for the next. Light up your tent/tarp/hammock to organize your gear or read a map. Or light up the path to middle of the night relief.


    LR10 utilizes warmer neutral white LEDs with high CRI ≥ 90 for more vivid, natural color and reduced eye strain. CRI (Color Rendering Index) is a measurement of how colors look under a light source as compared with sunlight. The index is measured from 0-100, with a perfect 100 indicating colors under the light source appear the same as they would under natural sunlight.

    To keep it simple, a single button controls both Power and Mode. Press and hold once for low light. Repeatedly press the button to cycle from low>medium>high>low. Then press and hold once to turn off.

    There are also three rescue modes – caution, SOS, and location beacon. Caution repeatedly flashes on and off, SOS repeatedly flashes SOS in Morse code (. . . ––– . . .), while location beacon repeats a quick flash followed by a short delay. To reach rescue modes, press the button twice for caution. Repeatedly press the button to cycle from Caution>SOS>Beacon>Caution. Press and hold once to turn off.

    Low 8 Press & Hold Once Press & Hold Once
    Medium 65 From Low, Press Once Press & Hold Once
    High 250 From Medium, Press Once Press & Hold Once
    Caution 250 From Off, Press Twice Press & Hold Once
    SOS 250 From Caution, Press Once/From Off, Press Three Times Press & Hold Once
    Beacon 250 From SOS, Press Once/From Off, Press Four Times Press & Hold Once


    LR10 has a built-in, long-lasting 1200 mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery that holds power equal to four AAA batteries yet is much more sustainable. An intelligent protective charging circuit and a Micro USB connection make it easy to recharge. Since you probably already carry a spare battery to charge your phone, there’s no need to worry about running out of power or replacing batteries, just plug into a power bank, wall charger, computer, or car (USB cable provided). The light maintains full functionality while charging.

    Want to know how much battery power is left? With the light turned off, press the button once. The button will flash 3 times if you have more than 50% power, 2 times if you’re below 50%, and 1 time if you’re below 10%. Plug it in and an indicator light lets you know when the charge is complete. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery. A rubber cover protects the USB port from dirt and moisture.

    The power-level indicator doubles as a location indicator to help you find the lantern in the dark. With the light on, hold down the button for 3 sec to turn the light off and also activate the red indicator light to flash once every 2 sec. When fully charged, the location indicator will operate for 6 months. Turning the light on deactivates the location indicator.

    LR10 has an integrated, stainless steel mounting loop for hanging that folds flat out of the way when not in use. Hang it from a hook inside your tent/tarp. Use a micro carabiner to clip to your hammock ridgeline, zipper pull, or a small tree branch. LR10 also has a magnetic base to attach to any magnetic surface. Great in a roadside emergency or a power failure at home or work.

    1. Should be called Ra  star rating

      Posted by Matthew Fulk on 9th Dec 2019

      This lantern is very bright in it's highest setting. It is a nice addition to my car camping repertoire. It has a nice warm light in it's lowest setting and the medium setting is perfect to light up a room in a pinch.

    2. Great Mini Light , Small, Light, and Bright!  star rating

      Posted by Firefly on 30th Mar 2019
