Only does one thing= light. AND NOT WELL AT ALL compared to multi-function kit that does Many things.,
This review is from: Athena Brands Soladyne 7-Inch Mini Solar Lantern (Sports)
Got this lantern and the radio below. The Eton's flashlight IS MANY MANY times better both as a flashlight AND a lantern (i.e. the flashlight put on the table lit 70% of a dark room. This Athena lantern put on the same table, same spot, lit 10% of the room. It was such an obvious landslide difference how much more light the Eton produced.) Very ironic and sad that this lantern doesn't do its ONE job decently. But that radio shone much better IN ADDITION to doing ALL of its other jobs. It's just a no brainer to avoid the lantern.
Also, they both arrived packaged well and working just fine. So neither was defective in anyway, and the comparison was very fair.
I was sad that I had to go through the hassle of returning this. But would've been a waste of space otherwise.
By the way, I took a video comparing the two and showing the extremely obvious difference. Now posted!
