INSTRUCTIONS AND OPERATING MODES
Solar Helix Set-Up
Upon arrival of your Solar Helix, the battery will be at a 50% charge. Before using for the first time, we recommend charging for 8 hours in bright sunlight with your Solight expanded, the solar panel facing the sun, and with the power turned off. This will ensure your Solight is fully charged before first time use and will contribute to optimal future performance.
Charging your Solar Helix
Direct sunlight is the optimal way to charge, with your Solight expanded, the solar panel facing the sunlight, and with the power turned off. If your battery is low on charge, it typically takes 8 hours to fully charge. Charging through a window on a cloudy day could increase your Solight’s charging time by up to 30%.
Operating Modes starting from the off position

I have discovered this solar lantern many many years ago in the UN store and I bought several to gift to friends. Last year, the lantern I bought over a decade ago finally expired on me. So I wrote to Solight to inquire about their recycling program as I don't want to just toss it out in the garbage. I am delighted to find out that they do have a recycling program and that I receive a 30% off coupon after I mail in the retired lantern. Which I did. I purchased another 3 lanterns to gift to students in my sustainability program. Beautiful lantern that worked for over a decade (I use it daily) and I love the fact that you don't have to blow up the lantern because of the special origami design. You can also select the warm or cool light with the newest version of the lantern. Extra bonus points! Thank you Solight!
Thank you so much!! We really appreciate. your kindness and so happy you like the new updated units!
You brightened our day!!
Great for Florida weather. I have lost electricity twice in the last 20 days due to storms. The cube was safe, lightweight and easy to carry from room to room.
I love the simplicity and function of these lanterns and use them frequently. However, I recently discovered they will warp beyond recognition if left to recharge on the hot dashboard of a car. Giving myself a dope slap and a heads up to other users.
A must-have in my camping kit. The collapsible design is so much neater than other inflatable solar lights, and I love the color choices. Great for hanging around the campsite for ambience or in the tent for some extra light. Also love clipping these to my pack for visibility. The cube is still distinctive enough that my friends can find me easily in a crowd.
After gifting a SoLight to Ukraine children’s hospital, I wanted one, too. Been craving something solar to use in an apartment for ages. This little cube is perfect! Charges in the sun on a windowsill, ready to light up anytime. So good to need no batteries or plug in, especially in a power outage. Brightens a dark corner near no outlet. LOVE! Thank you, SoLight, for sharing your ingenuity with the world.
