This Coast lantern is of a similar design, with its own set of unique features and pros and cons. Because I am very familiar with the Ray-O-Vac and because it seems to be a very popular model, I will compare some of the basic features between the two, which I hope will be useful to help buyers choose which best suits their needs. For brevity the Ray-O-Vac will be ROV and the Coast will be CT.
ROV: smaller and a bit more rugged feeling
CT: about 50% larger. Both models weigh about the same
(Please see the picture I posted in the gallery to see both lanterns side-by-side)
ROV: Two position push button on/off switch for high/low power.
CT: Push button on/off switch plus rotary brightness control, plus solid red or flashing red
ROV: Tiny LED flashes occasionally to help locate lantern in the dark
CT: Multiple LEDs when unit is powered up to indicate relative battery life
ROV: Plastic hangers top and bottom.Read more ›
I cannot speak for campers, since I do not sleep in the woods, being born with good sense and no furry outer layers. This may indeed be too glaring for a small tent and would probaby attract every moth and bug within 30 miles (another excellent reason for not utilizing the out of doors, except under supervision). But for a home emergency light that will give you sufficient illumination to fix a meal, read, and convince yourself that nothing is hiding behind the sofa, this could not be better.
These are the stats, straight from the Amazon page:
* 375 lumen light output; 80 hour runtime
* Four modes: flashing red, solid red, area light, energy saving
* Push button on/off switch with Variable Light Technology (dimming) - choose any light level
* 4 D batteries (not included); Built-in battery life indicator
* 8.25 inches tall
The way the lantern is fabricated, with a silver reflective surface behind the bulb, you get a heckuva lot of light from those 375 lumens. And the 80 hours is decent. Chances are the lights will be on in three days and if not, please, don't torture yourself. Take the credit card, go to the airport and take your vacation a little early. Or inflict yourself on your parents. Why suffer.
I like the fact that you get Flashing Red and Solid Red light at the flick of a button. I live in earthquake territory and want to make it as easy as possible for the rescuers to dig me out, if that worst case scenario thing happens and I wake up with the roof on my dainty brow instead of my Kindle.Read more ›
First of all, this lantern is pretty big. It is over 8" tall and just bulky all around. The light cover is opaque, so it offers a softer light, but I don't think that's really necessary outdoors. Additionally, it is plastic, but unlike the Rayovac (which is heavy and thick), this seems bound to break or crack when it inevitably falls out of the trunk of my car. It has no hook for hanging inside a tent (upside-down), but does have one on top.
On the plus side, it has a dimmer switch, so you have real control over the brightness of the lantern (unlike the Rayovac, which is Bright or Brighter). Also, there is the red option, which can provide good indirect light. The flashing option is also nice, though I question whether this is really bright enough to be effective in a real emergency situation. It might be handy for road-side use, but I bet your car's hazards are brighter.
But mostly, I think this is over-priced. It's currently $28, while the Rayovac, which I am much happier with, is $25 (though when I bought it, it was much cheaper still). My advice: skip this and get the Rayovac (unless you really need a red lantern).
