5.0 out of 5 stars Best LED Lantern I own, July 13, 2009
This review is from: CREE 40426 110 Lumens Bright Light CREE XLamp Warm White Camping LED Lantern (Tools & Home Improvement)
This is by far, the most useful lantern I own.... The natural colored light is AWESOME.

1.) It's small, and easy to put in the backpack
2.) On low, (which is not much different from high) it runs a LONG time.
3.) It takes my rechargeable batteries easily (some lanterns are a bit too small such as my xb glorb).
4.) The light is NOT obnoxious, it has a tint that is just as good as an incandescent.
5.) The light output is appropriate for it's size (NO, It's not a gas lantern, but as far as LED's go, it's fantastic).

I have purchased two from this vendor and will purchase a couple more.

If you currently own old school LED's and hate the blueish light output, you won't regret purchasing this... It looks so close to normal light!

I just had a power outage due to some damage to lines, I was comfortable, able to navigate around my house, and suffered NO eyestrain. Two units were enough to give me ample light to take a bath, read, play cards, fix a sandwich and find batteries for my A.M. radio.

1/4/10 little lights are still going great, I love the color of the natural light. P.S. Eneloops will not last as long as long as 2650 mah batteries if you are using rechargeables.

If this is a problem, then I guess the solution would be to not look at the lantern directly.

What brand of batteries do you recommend for this lantern? Eneloops with a 2000 mah is all I have at the moment.
