Fantastic very bright easy to use lantern - great for power cuts!
on 9 October 2014
I don't go camping but was looking for a battery powered lantern to provide decent light in case of a power cut. We had quite a few long power outages last December in the winter storm and got fed up with the poor light from candles. I saw this and liked the reviews so ordered it. I am very impressed, it's nice and compact, rubberised and looks rugged and would withstand a few knocks and it's waterproof. The battery compartment screws off the bottom, you pop in 3 x D size batteries ( you get any with it, so order some at the same time). You then simply click the button on the front of the lantern and the light is amazing, incredibly bright, it practically lights up a whole room! You can dim it by pressing the button twice. There is a third option, press and hold for 5 seconds and the light strobes and flashes on/ off, I guess this is for people camping and lost in a dark forest somewhere ( Horror movie stuff!). Anyway, this is a really good lantern and it's now on a shelf waiting for the next power cut and no rushing around looking for candles & matches and of course it's much safer with no risk of fire. Might buy another one! Highly recommended for all of us in the South of England that remember Christmas 2013 without electricity, hopefully never again!
