I've had this lamp for over a year now and I just bought a second. I primarily use this as an emergency lamp (power outages, auto issues, etc.) I've also used it for camping, but it's a bit heavy for those who like to travel light. It stows away securely and compactly in the closed position. It can be hung and is stable on its base. The LEDs are white and very bright in high mode. I only use this mode for finding objects or if I intend to venture away from the lantern. Low mode, which I have used more frequently is ideal for reading or general lighting (lasts longer).

The Dynamo works well. A few minutes of cranking is more than enough to get light for quick tasks if the lamp has totally died. I've never fully charged the lamp with the hand crank and don't intend to try.

The siren is activated by a small button on the front of the lantern. It is shrill and can be heard for at least 50 yards. The lantern also comes with a phone charger and several different adapters for different brands and styles of phone. I can't comment on the effectiveness of this feature as I have never used it.

I'll note that the wall charger does not come with the lamp and I had to order one from the eGear site. I didn't subtract a star because it's easy enough to either charge it in the car or crank the dynamo for a few minutes. Just an FYI

Also, I've dropped this lamp three or four times. All the LEDs still burn brightly and all of the moving parts still function well. I don't know how well it would stand up to really rough treatment, but for light to moderate use it holds up well.

Just got back from a Shenendoah Valley camping trip and this lantern was fantastic. While it wasn't cheap ($32 all-in), it was perfect for our needs. Most LED lanterns are not ultra-bright, but this one is worlds better than the other one we had -- wind-N-go lantern (weak 9 LED), radio (broke 1st time), siren, red flasher combo. The eGear has 2 settings and the low w/9 LED's was plenty bright and much better than the WNG. The 15 setting allowed us to play cards, lit the tent well, etc. It has a handle on to that we attached a hook to for hanging. Another awesome feature is that the light slides down into the housing for storage, cutting the form factor in half. They recommend you charge it 1st time for 6 hrs using 12V which was a challenge as only the car charger is included and we only had 4hrs drive time before we arrived...hope that doesn't limit battery life. We used it for 3 hrs or so and didn't need to crank but near the end of the evening I did wind it for 2min which 'perked up' the LEDs. BTW, if the siren is important to you, this one is weak. Overall, this lantern is great for camping and power outages assuming it lasts!

The lantern seems well made and is pretty bright. It will not blaze a path into the night, but it will brighten up a dark campsite or a living room when the power goes out. Good to have around, just in case.

We keep this in our living room to use in case of a power outage. With a recent heat wave, and a power outage for 13 hours, it came in quite handy. Nice bright white light. Charging with the usb charger is a very nice feature. Hand crank works well and brightens up the light well. A rounded edge on the hand crank instead of the square would be a nice improvement. Overall, still a 10.
