Good for camping
on 23 July 2014
This lamp works very well for camping. The light is relatively un-directional, so it lights up a space rather than throwing a beam - which is what is needed for lighting a tent.
The lamp comes with a wire loop and miniature carabiner so you can hang it from various parts of your tent.
It has three brightness settings: the first click of the control button sets the lowest setting (just 5 LEDs lit up), and the next two presses increase the number of LEDs lit. The fourth click turns them all off.
When all the LEDs are on it is very bright - I only ever used it on the lowest setting.
It requires three AAA batteries - not supplied. These have to be mounted in a special plastic carrier (supplied in the battery compartment).
Unfortunately my unit came without any instructions, so I had to work out that the batteries have to be fitted in the carrier in a particular way: each negative battery terminal should face the spring contact end in each position in the carrier. The carrier then has to be mounted in the lamp the right way around, but this is easier as there is a battery symbol on the carrier.
