This really is something we thought we could have done without just getting by using the table standing lamps until we decided to give it a try. I wish we had bought this sooner, it casts a much better light without the dark shadows that the florescent bulbs give as you just use the standard screw in bulbs. The cable is more than long enough in our Bear Lake 6 to reach the socket. You can easily adjust the height, although my husband at 6'3" did catch his head on it a couple of times (it didn't hurt too much as it swings).
We had searched high and low to find a suitable camping light, after trying numerous types we opted for the Merope, we need to look no further this lamp is absolutely perfect, supplying enough illumination without being overpowering brilliant !!!!!!
Costly but of good Quality Electric cable is long enough for most tents. Light is a 40 watt spot bulb of which generates a good downward light the side of the bulb gives off a soft glow which does not strain the eyes. Really pleased with the purchase.
We were very pleased with this light, but must say that it is quite heavy to hang from the little plastic loop that came with our tent. When it is switched on we were very surpirsed at how much light it gave off but without being intrusive.
Very good reliable mains light for a tent or awning. This smart looking light finishes the ambience of our tent very nicely. It plugs in directly to the electric hook up and has a long lead which allows the wire to be fastened along the wall and roof of the tent using the tent fixed fasteners. The light has a chain fastened to the top which is not shown in the picture. This can be used to hang the light in your tent or awning extension. It does not come with a bulb so you will need a new screw in large base bulb.
