You can see that the Eureka Warrior has an identical body and construction as the Rayovac Sportsman LED Lantern (SE3DLN) and Lighting Ever LED Lantern. The difference is those don't have a remote, dimming feature, and each has a different bulb and/or lumen (brightness) output.
This unit really is better than those other units because of the dimming option. A remote for a lantern in a tent is really kind of pushing the laziness factor :~) and the other units have similar brightness. But being able to dim a lantern so it's not bothering other campers after 10pm is a great thing!
To operate the dimmer is a little bit tricky. You have to turn the lantern on (this is the 100% light output), then press and hold the on button. After a few seconds you will see the light start to dim. Once you get to the desired light level just release the on button. This can be done with power button on the lantern or the remote. To use the remote you have to first click the power button on the lantern 3 times (you will see a small blue light turn on above the power button).
I'm not crazy about the strobe feature, but I can see how some people might like it.

This little light is fantastic! Very bright! Lights up the tent so well. Has a dimmer option. The remote control is very useful. If the light is hanging in your tent and you don't want to get out of your sleeping bag to turn it on or off, you just click the remote. I love it!
