TEST APP for MPOWERD Luci Solar Lantern-Frances Penn
- I have read Chapter 5 of the BackpackGearTest Survival Guide, Version 0609 and I will follow all requirements. My signed tester agreement is on file.
Name: Frances Penn
Height: 5 ft 9 in (1.75 m)
Weight: 135 lb (61 kg)
E-mail: fpenn AT sbcglobal DOT net
Location: Costa Mesa, California, USA
Backpacking background: I have been backpacking for five years mostly on long weekends in Southern California with one or two 5-day trips per year in the Sierras. My total daypack weight is usually 15 lb (7 kg) and my total backpack weight is usually 28-30 lb (13-14 kg). I am a tent camper and have experienced all night rain, heavy winds, camping in snow, but mostly fair weather.
Brief Test Plan: I will test the MPowerd Luci Lantern on two or more backpacking trips during each of the FR and LTR periods. Each of these backpacking trips will be 3 days or more in the San Bernardino Mountains, Joshua Tree National Park and the Sierras. I will hike about 25 miles per trip on level trail, steep trail, off-trail/boulders, snow, rain and mud depending on the conditions. This test will be partly in the winter which will provide the perfect opportunity to test the light in adverse conditions for battery strength, brightness, and the ability to recharge while on the trail.
