This lantern is fantastic. We are remodeling and have used this lantern on low as a night light every night, all night, for over a week on one set of batteries. We hang it from a nail, turn it on low and go to bed. It bathes the whole room in a soft light so we don't stub our toes on construction junk on our way to the bathroom.

I'm not sure what the life span of batteries is on high but the high setting is very bright. You might not want to do beadwork but situate a couple of them correctly (above and behind people) and folks could play cards.

Every strength is also a weakness and having a bright output is no exception. This lantern is so bright that when lit, it's uncomfortable to look at directly. That's a common "problem". It's not really a problem per se... one needs to understand how to use these little guys and then they're wonderful. It's perfect for hanging high and setting back away from direct view in order to get bathed by its bright light.

I highly recommend this lantern!

This is one of the few LED flashlight-things that I really like. It gives room-filling light and you can hold it in the palm of your hand. It is a dandy thing for camping and power outages, and has a low power 25% setting for longer battery life.

It uses 4 AA batteries, but gives almost as much light as a full-size 4-D Coleman camping lantern with a krypton bulb. The size is surprising small: about the size of a regular 2-D flashlight minus the head.

It also has 2 small, but nice features. The top has a small loop handle made of wire that can be used to hang or attach it to things; if you have small fingers, it will fit 2 fingers through. It also has small feet that you can slide out for greater stability.

My only concern is the battery life: the package does not list it, but the manufacturer's website claims 80 hours. I am rather skeptical, so carry spares just in case. Mine has new batteries, so I cannot tell.

This is a great area light. At scout camp we hung it in our dining fly and it provided plenty of light for night activities. I'm glad to get rid if my heavier propane lantern. If you are wanting a light to read with you will not like this light. It's designed to broadcast light in a larger area and is not directed in a small space. Get a head lamp if you need a more concentrated light.

This is one of the best little lanterns I have found. It's really bright (LED) and gives great overall lighting so you don't trip over things. This thing has an outstanding battery life (see stats in the ad) 200 hours on low and 80 on high for 4 AA batteries! And to note, the low setting is only a small difference from the high. So don't worry, still lots of light.

I purchased one last year, a little skeptical, but have now gone back to purchase 3 more for emergency/camping use.

One reviewer said there was a sliding shield - there isn't. Maybe they were just reviewing the wrong lantern. The light is diffused enough you shouldn't need it anyway. I also own a Coleman X (Pack-Away) lantern (the box shape, not triangle). In comparison, I would take this Sylvania lantern any day for 3 reasons. 1.) It's cheaper by at least $10+ 2.) The battery life on this Sylvania cannot be beat (Coleman it's 12 hrs on low) 3.) The glare on the Coleman is outrageous for an LED. They wanted to make it bright but forgot usefulness. Also, since the Coleman has corners (the Sylvania doesn't - it's cylindrical) it has shadows everywhere.

One thing to note about this Sylvania, while it is good for working by and seeing things around you, if want to do any long term reading I would recommend a headlamp instead. You can still read by this lantern (it is bright enough) but the light won't be directed on your reading page and might be cumbersome if you want to lie down in bed and read.

One tip for protecting this lantern's clear shield so it doesn't get scratched up in transport or a gear bag (it's plastic, so it won't break): Put it in a clean, thick, soft sock, twist the end and then double it back over itself. It will stay in place and your lantern will be ready to go with you at any time.

You can't go wrong with this lantern. Cheers!

I bought this light for camping and it worked fine as a tent light. But then I needed it about a year later when the power went out and No Light. What happened? Alkaline batteries should last forever when not loaded. I suspected the electronic switch was always drawing current at a low level. Checking it out with a meter, this light continuously draws .35 milliamps. In other words it's slowly draining the batteries even while off. A good AA is 1000 mA*Hrs so 4 of them divided by .40 ma equals 10,000 Hrs, a little over one year. So, if you are going to store this for long periods of time, remove the batteries. Fortunately the batteries can be easily removed.

I have owned about 15 of these little lanterns. Bought them on clearance from a local hardware store for five dollars.

Same lantern as the more expensive Brunton Glorb LED XB Lantern.

These work great out of the package, but some small mods can be done to make them better.

To diffuse the light more, you can use some spray frost or Glad Press 'N Seal on the outside of the globe. I went even cheaper and used a small piece of wax paper on the INSIDE of the globe. If cut to the right size, it works great, it is cheap and it make the light much more even.

I also Modified about half of my lanterns with new LED's. I went with a much brighter SSC P4 U-bin Emitter on some of them, And a Warm White version on a couple others.

If you want to use rechargeable batteries, it is a good idea to trim off about 2 mm worth of plastic from the top of the screw-in legs/battery holder. The batteries are a tight fit and the plastic can chew up the batteries.

Build quality is good. 1 out of 15 lanterns had a messed up leg. I gave that one away. Another lantern broke when I tried to take it apart to modify. Nothing a good epoxy could not fix.

There is a small parasitic drain on the batteries when not in use. About 150 microamps or so. It's a good idea to recharge batteries about once a year.

Overall a good lantern for the money
