With that said, this was awesome. The amber lights were the perfect amount of light for night time and sine they are LED, I was able to keep them on all night long for 3 nights in a row with the same batteries. I used the bright white lights for several hours also on the same batteries and this thing performed like a champ. It is compact and light weight, bright enough to play cards or read with. the amber lights are dim enough to sleep and bright enough that you can open the tent to "visit the great outdoors" at night without waking anyone else with a bright light or killing yourself.
I would TOTALLY recommend this, but I will only give it 4 stars because of the battery door. After fixing it with duct tape, it was fine, but I did cuss the light a couple of times before fixing the epic fail myself.
It uses 3 AAA batteries in a cassette which is a bit of a pain - never been a fan of that design. (If it came with an extra cassette that would be helpful because then you could have a second set of batteries ready to go when the first set ran out. As it is, it just adds time to the process of changing batteries.). I would also prefer AA batteries as the AAA's don't last very long. We get 2 or 3 nights use of it before having to change batteries.
All that said though it's the best of this type of light I'm aware of. Worth buying for the price, particularly if you need a night light.
My only complaint is the switch: it's on the side and looks exactly like the other side which is the battery compartment, so it's easy to go to the wrong side at first (though I guess the more you use it the more you'd get used to it). It's also kind of stiff, so all in all there's more fumbling with it than I'd like, especially since we're talking about inside a tent at nighttime.
But all in all it does the job very well and is also nearly the only choice for a dim, mellow nightlight for camping.
