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.

It can be used for area light or directed light, can be used bright or very dim, and has a red flashing emergency signal that can be used alone or with the light.

You can also plug a cell phone into the USB port to charge it from the internal batteries or via the crank generator.

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.

This is a very well designed lantern and USB power device. It will charge an iPhone or an iPad from the internal battery that can then be recharged by it's built in USB cord, or by the hand crank on top. We all have plenty of USB wall chargers or car chargers around so it's not a problem. The hand crank could be very useful in situations where there isn't wall or car power, like a storm power outage.
The LED light is very bright, or can be turned way down in brightness. I love the bright glow of the lantern but I also really like the split lantern feature that gives light off on one side so it not only cuts the brightness if desired, but has more of a flashlight direction rather than the glow of a lantern. The knob on the front is easy to use to dial in these features.

This light is absolutely awesome! Well made, compact, EXTREMELY long lasting light on a full battery charge. I like the option to be able to either turn on the full 360 light or simply the 180 light. Great feature. The only gripe (if you can call it a gripe) is how long it takes to charge it up while hand cranking. I had used it for 3 hours on the 180 light and it had gone down one bar on the battery charge. It took over 1,150 full revolution cranks to charge it back up to full. Whew!

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.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Goal Zero Lighthouse 250 is great little lantern: I highly recommended it for campers and for folks who like to be prepared for power outages. At 1.1 pound, it may be too heavy for many backpackers; however, it would be a great choice for a tent camping, cabin, or boat. It is ideal for in-home portable emergency lighting during a power outage.

The Lighthouse 250 uses two 3-watt LED bulbs to produce up to 250 lumens (equivalent to a 25 watt incandescent bulb). This may not seem like a lot of light, but it is sufficient to get most things done. The Lighthouse 250 has three brightness settings: low, high, and turbo. You can select to light one or both LED bulbs. It has flashing red lights on top for emergency alert. The light has foldable legs, which allows it to easily stand on a flat surface (like a cooler, table, or countertop). It has a hook at the top that allows you to hang it in a tent or cabin.

Operating times (per manufacturer):
- 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)

Naturally, I performed my own capacity test to verify the manufacturer's claim. After a full charge, one side lit on "high" operated for 16 hours and 50 minutes (nearly 40 percent better than the manufacturer's data). It took 6.5 hours to recharge the lamp after this test discharge (using an USB wall charger).

The Lighthouse 250 has non-replaceable internal batteries (3.7 V, 4400 mAh, Li-NMC). Naturally, I would have been happier if I could replace the batteries at some point in the future. Goal Zero says that the batteries should last between 400 and 500 complete cycles (complete discharge followed by recharging).
