Judging from the emails, many of you are just as interested in the OXO Luau as with the DemiGlow. We were going to post the Luau's FirstLook on Monday, but thought we would post it this weekend since there were so many questions.
The Luau rechargeable LED lantern package has three pieces: a lamp, a circular charger, and an AC wall adapter. A dimmer is cleverly integrated into the bottom of the lamp. The brightness of the lamp may be controlled by rotating the entire base.
The shape of the Luau's charger is circular. This design ensures the proper placement of the lamp on the charger and eliminates the need to orient the contacts. The bottom of the charger has a channel to allow the wire to fit into the base so everything lays flat on the floor or table.
The charging base glows green when the lamp is removed and orange when charging. Like all Candela lamps, if charged, the unit automatically turns on when removed from the charging base.
We really like the execution of this Luau rechargeable LED lantern. It is great looking, surprisingly light, comfortable to hold, and is rated to last for about 6 to 10 hours on a charge. This Luau will be a nice lighting companion whether for sitting out on the patio or on walks along the beach at dusk. Folks here will have more comments once they have taken it out for a stroll. - Wan Chi Lau (permalink)
