That said, every flashlight / lantern has its purpose. And in spite of the other reviewers thinking this one did not hit the mark, I think it did so just fine - with flying colors, no less!
Now, this is not a propane lantern. If you are traveling, you know the pro's and con's. Nothing like being 'all set' on the light part before you reach your destination. I've been on several car camping trips where we've reached the destination only to find something in the way of getting light after dark - those French CampinGaz systems are really tough to get fuel for, the wicks are equally tough to find, and the regular propane ones require finding out a local camping supply store in a strange place when I'd rather be opening a bottle of wine and pitching tent. I don't risk traveling with fuel on road trips, as I don't really pay much attention to hazmat warnings on bridges and tunnels and ferries. Flights, of course, entirely rule out carrying fuel from home.
Given those hard-learned lessons, I've shifted to portable LED lanterns for a while. LED is, well, an obvious choice, as otherwise you are talking about a couple of hours of burn time.
Within the LED space, there's a wide array of options that are now available. This one fits a certain set of requirements - now its up to you to see if they are the same as yours.
1. This is bright white LED. There are come with warm white colors, this is not one of them. If you are particular about the color of light, you should know.
2. This is not as much light as the full-size D-battery powered GE CFL lamp lanterns.Read more ›
This lantern was put to the test in an island-wide blackout and I must say it performed wonderfully. We used one hanging high in the kitchen and one in a bedroom...a quick walk outside in a pitch black parking lot confirmed that these lights are indeed bright. There was also no flickering, dimming, or overheating with continued use on high mode for over 5 hours. We are very pleased and plan to order more for future use.
I ordered the Brunton Polaris LED lantern as a light source for backpacking and moto-camping (motorcycle) The backpackers reviews suggest this emits a light source similar in color and warmth of a gas lantern (Coleman style) but without the obvious bulk, weight, and need for fuel and fragile mantles.
Upon receipt, the lantern would not switch on until fiddling with the battery cap screw tension. Seemed there is a sweet spot somewhere between the 'good n' snug' adjustment and simply loose. A small thing but that was my experience.
Tried it in a darkened bedroom. On the HI setting it seemed to be suffcient for a small camp and the LOW setting would be fine inside a tent for reading. Felt it would work fine for my trip planned to the Sierras the following week.
First night at camp could NOT switch the unit on no matter how snug or loose the battery well cover screw was. Seting up camp the following day after 300+ miles of riding I find the lantern in my saddlebags turned ON and the batteries quite warm. The jostling in the side bags apparently turned it on, maybe even fixed it?? Tried turning it ON/OFF several times and it seemed to work fine. Figured now I can use it.
Tried it again once darkness set in and again it will not work. Tried switching the batteries around, fiddling with the battery cover screw tension again, even tried both a light and firm force on the rubberized on/off switch. Nothing. Tried pounding it firmly in the palm of my hand and it flashed on/off for just a millisecond and that was it.Read more ›
