Luminoodle Portable USB Lighting:PDB TESTED No. 213

March 2017 PDB Tested Roy Sparks

Rope lighting continues to be a big hit, especially in the pontoon industry, and thanks to Power Practical you can now add the word portable to the list of its features. The Luminoodle is an all-in-one USB lighting solution that will illuminate your boat as well as charge any mobile device.

We decided to give it a try and instantly liked how bright and spread out the light really is. However, our favorite part is the flexible and waterproof design that is ideal for boats. It can be powered by any USB battery or power source and the Luminoodle comes with universal ties, embedded magnets, utility loop and a lantern bag so you can stick, strap, hook or hang it to add light to just about anywhere. When paired with the lithium battery pack (highly recommended), it lasts for 30 plus hours at a time. As an added bonus, you can coil it up in the included nylon bag and it becomes a lantern; now that’s some innovative thinking! The 5-foot rope retails for $19.99 while the 10-foot version goes for $29.99. It’s a simple idea yet extremely effective and it will easily add mood lighting to your pontoon or deck boat in seconds.
