Last year, Power Practical launched an overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter campaign for their original Luminoodle string light. The company seems to have done it again with a follow-up campaign for two new string lights. Taking feedback from the original backers (over 20,000 of them), the new Luminoodle Color and Basecamp pack in tons of extra features and functionality.
The 5-foot long Luminoodle Color delivers up to 450 lumens of light and the 20-foot long Basecamp up to a whopping 3000 lumens of light for your campsite or backyard. Each string light shines in 14 different color options including 3 different shades of white and a red night-vision mode.
Both the new Luminoodle Color and Basecamp come with built-in controls as well as a wireless remote to toggle between all the different settings. A dimmer allows you to pick just the right level of light for every situation and if you want to create a more festive atmosphere, the new Luminoodles offer 3 dynamic modes–one color strobe, multi-color strobe, and multi-color fade.
Attachments are similar to the original–magnet sliders for securing to metal surfaces, along with Velcro quick straps connected to steel plates to create magnetic surfaces where they don’t exist (3 with the Color and 12 with the Basecamp model).
The Color model comes with a lantern bag to create a soft, diffused light when placed inside. It is USB powered so can run from portable batteries or any USB port/charger, including the optional Lithium 3300 portable battery pack from Power Practical.
The Basecamp model accommodates 2 power options–a wall adapter for patio, garage, and home use and a car adapter for your car, RV, or boat. Power Practical also offers a Pronto 12 fast-charge battery pack option to go with the Luminoodle Basecamp.
For a pledge of $24-$159 over on Kickstarter, you can pre-order your Luminoodle Color or Basecamp package of choice. Delivery is expected in August.
