Product Description


The Lighthouse250 Lantern from Goal Zero is the epitome of emergency preparedness and the perfect light for any backup kit. With the Lighthouse250 Lantern and USB Power Hub, light up any situation with 250 lumens of bright, LED light--or use the dimmable, DuaLite Directional Lighting feature to save on power for extended runtime. The Lighthouse 250 recharges quickly from USB, solar or the included hand crank, and has a built-in USB port to power small handheld devices to keep you connected to the ones who matter most. All in all, it’s the only light you’ll ever need.

Technical Specs
Light and USB power for your outdoor adventures
250 lumens of light, plus USB charging for your devices
DuaLite Directional Lighting

The ability to adjust and dim your light yields longer runtimes, like the 48 hour runtime found in the Lighthouse 250 Lantern and USB Power Hub. With the innovative DuaLite Directional Lighting feature, you can utilize 360° of bright LED light, or save on power and extend runtime by lighting half the lantern. The Lighthouse 250 also features dimmable and TURBO settings, giving you ultimate control over its 250 lumens and runtime.

Run Times:
  • One side lit: 48 hours (low), 12 hours (high), 5 hours (turbo)
  • Both sides lit: 24 hours (low), 6 hours (high), 2.5 hours (turbo)
  • Hand crank: 2.2W (cranking at 120 RPM), 1 minute of crank = 10 minutes of light
Recharge Anywhere, Anytime

Traditional lanterns rely on costly D batteries or weak rechargeable packs--all that can leave you left in the dark if you’re not prepared. The Lighthouse 250 Lantern and USB Power Hub features an advanced, lithium-ion battery that's USB rechargeable so you can juice up from laptops or wall adapters in about 7 hours. Out on a family camping trip? Connect to a Goal Zero Nomad Solar Panel and charge up the Lighthouse 250 in 7 hours of full sun. Hit with a power outage and a dead lantern? The Lighthouse 250 also boasts a built-in hand-crank, so you can power it up and light it up instantly.

The lithium-ion battery has a shelf life of up to 6 months. It also features a built-in management system with charging and low-battery protection, so you can leave it plugged in until needed.

In addition to being a beacon in the darkness, the Lighthouse 250 Lantern and USB Power Hub features a built-in USB port that can charge phones and even boost tablets. With a powerful 4,400 mAh internal battery you can ensure you stay connected to those who matter most, on or off the grid.

The 5-volt USB input accepts up to 1 amp (5 watts), while the output generates up to 1.5 amps (7.5 watts) to power even high-drain devices such as tablets.

It seems very sturdy and well made.
You can also plug a cell phone into the USB port to charge it from the internal batteries or via the crank generator.
Great emergency light or for camping.

I'd give the lantern as it arrived and functioned 5 stars. It's bright for its size and being rechargeable, very versatile, and a great idea, and excellent in almost every aspect of its execution. ALMOST.

If you have a way to charge it, it's fantastic. Unfortunately, in a gear test as we planned an outing for a coming weekend to field test this and other Goal Zero products (Yeti 400, Light-a-Life, Escape 30 panels, etc.), I was running this lamp for a bit. It worked fine, and as it's charge was running low, tried to check the hand crank to charge it.

One full turn - the whole top (crank handle and part it folds down over) BROKE OFF. At first, I thought it had just "popped off". But I could see glue around the middle that had failed. It appears that there is nothing more than the glue holding the plastic together. While there appears to be a small steel rod going down into the lantern, it does not extend up into the crank handle, and so there is no permanent connection.

However, it's now been beyond my 30-day window for a return through Amazon, and Goal Zero's policy is only if purchased directly through them.

So for $75, what started as a great idea was minimized by fairly cheap design in the crank handle. The main point to this is if you don't have USB/Solar, there is no other way to charge this. If you do have solar, but need this at night, it will drain the battery fairly quickly and become useless until it can be charged the next day. The Goal Zero website says a Nomad 7 will take 7 hours to recharge it. Since most of us count on approximately 5 hours of full sun at best, it means it will not recharge fully in a single day.

This lightweight lantern, paired with a Nomad solar charger, is an excellent solution for any camping set up, whether it be the backpacker or RVer. The compact design will serve the minimalist well. The ability to light a trail with 180 lighting will light your path to the bathroom in the middle of the night, while conserving energy Plus the 360 lighting feature allow you to tailor your lighting output to your needs. The USB port allows you to charge cell phones and other devices, will keep your electronics up to speed while off the grid. The built in legs that fold away are a nice little perk, too.

It will light a small area, but don't expect it to replicate the light of a big lantern. It is more than ample, however, for most basic campsite activity. I love that I can turn it and immediately have light versus pulling the big Coleman out of the protective case and lighting the mantle.

Charge via USB by solar, wall, or PC.
180 and 360 lighting choices
Blinking light option
Adjustable brightness
Hand crank for when battery is dead
Frosted inner globe to diffuse light
Build in USB cord for recharging the lantern battery
Fold-away carrying handle
Lightweight and compact design
Folding away legs

Cannon replace bulb or battery. Once they are dead, it's worthless.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I was immediately impressed with the Goal Zero lantern. It's bright. 250 lumens might not sound like a lot, but it's pretty good for a lantern and darn good for a rechargeable one. Its design is also very functional. The legs allow for better use on a table and the wire handle allows you to hang the lantern. The latter is especially good for car camping. The handle does not function well, however, as an actual carrying handle. The emergency lights on top are not bright at all and I would say were a waste of effort and function.

It didn't come with its own USB adapter, but that's okay for a lot of people because all you have to do is use your iPhone power adapter or something similar. If you don't already own one then that's a hassle.

Which brings me to my puzzlement about this lantern. At this price point (approx. $75) I would have expected an adapter AND a solar function. This lantern is more expensive than many crank/rechargeable radios. So why? Is it the brightness? The number of cycles the rechargeable battery can handle? (Company that makes it claims, according to another reviewer, 400+ recharges.) My reason for concern is that I happen to own four small battery powered lanterns which can take either AA or D batteries. They're not as bright and they're heavier, but they also cost less than $20 each. So you have to ask yourself how much you're willing to pay for a rechargeable lantern. Yes, this is a cool lantern - bright, functional, lightweight. Just a question as to whether or not you want to pay a certain price for it - and be aware that you'll need a power adapter if you don't already have one.

I grabbed this product (Goal Zero 32001 Lighthouse 250 Portable Battery Charger USB Power Hub and Lantern) during an Amazon "Deal of the Day" sale. It looks like a neat gadget that can be useful not just for camping, but also during an extended power outage. After thoroughly testing all its advertised functions, I'm very happy with my purchase.

[LED Lantern]
The Goal Zero lantern contains two CREE 3-Watt LEDs, with an advertised light output of 250 lumens at full power. I already own the Energizer Weather Ready Folding Area Lantern, but this Goal Zero lantern is far superior in many aspects:
- Over twice the maximum light output (250 vs. 96 lumens)
- Well-regulated brightness (instead of getting dimmer as battery voltage drops)
- Gives either all-around or semi-directional (180-degree) illumination
- The LED brightness can be adjusted to extend battery life
- Powered by internal Lithium-ion rechargeable battery pack

[Rechargeable Battery]
The internal battery pack can be recharged from any USB power adapter, through the attached USB cable. The battery is rated 4400mAh in capacity. The charging current I measured starts at around 0.85A (according to my PortaPow USB Power Monitor), and drops when the battery is close to full. So I expect the charge time to be 6-7 hours. I can also recharge it using the
