Sometimes you just need a light in the dark.
Now you can print your own lantern. And if you add some parts it even shines!

The lantern model is quite large. To print it you have to resize it. I printed the lantern at 30% and the result is still ok.
Print the glass part with transparent PLA if you want to make it shine.

For the light you need
1x LED 5mm
1x matching resistor for the LED
1x 1.5F, 5.5V goldcap capacitor
1x USB micro B port

Solder the USB port, the capacitor and the LED (+ resistor) in parallel. Now you can charge your lamp with power from your USB port. A 10 seconds charge will make the LED shine for at least 10 minutes.

Carousel thumb lantern
Printed on:
Anycubic I3 Mega
Turned out great. I printed it full scale. Added a base with slots for 2 drone batteries and an Arduino Nano. Also added a cover on the side with 2 push-button switches and the Mini USB Port. 1 switch is for selecting the color, the other for sending SOS in the chosen color.
