The UCO Sitka Camping Lantern with Extendable Arm is an innovative outdoor lighting solution that goes from the backyard to the campground, and anywhere else where portable elevated lighting is needed. Featuring an integrated extension arm that elevates the 500 lumen Super Bright LED light source from 12.5 inches to 26 inches, it provides up to four times as much usable light while reducing LED eye glare. The Infinity Dial, with a real wood inlay, fine tunes light output from low to high and anywhere in between, and features a Northern Lights color mode that cycles through red, green, and blue lights. A durable leather carrying handle makes it stylishly portable, and a USB output for charging phones and devices provides extra convenience. The Sitka comes in two styles (sold separately): Either powered by an included rechargeable 6600 mAh lithium-ion battery, which powers the lantern for up to 5 hours on high and 70 hours on low, or powered by 6 D-Cell batteries (not included), which power the lantern for up to 33 hours on high and 200 hours on low. The UCO Sitka Camping Lantern with Extendable Arm measures 7 x 6 x 12.5 inches. The lithium-ion version weighs 2.2 pounds, and the D-Cell version weighs 4.2 pounds (with batteries installed). Limited 1-year warranty.
Style: 6 D-cell Batteries

Anyway, I've ambled my way through a series of LED lanterns through the years. The early ones were mostly horrible (weak light, used expensive D cells). The more recent ones have been appreciably better--although mostly they still use the expensive batteries (you know, C, D or 9V ones, the ones you never have on hand when the lights go out!)
Anyway, so now UCO has a new LED lantern and...well...how could I resist.
The twist here is that the lantern expands, kind of like a jack in the box, or maybe like the handle on your luggage, so that the light is far above the base. When I read that my first thought was "not sure why I'd want that". But after testing this lamp, I'd say "yeah, I get it." Because when the light do go out, I'm not just using my lantern to light my way when I walk around (in fact I can use a good flashlight for that). I'm using it to fill a room with light. And why do I actually want to fill a room with light? Typically so I can see what I'm doing. Which might be reading. Or actually, usually it's reading because without power I'm not able to watch TV, play my stereo, sit down at my computer, or all the other fun stuff. So reading it is.
And this lantern is just fabulous (FAB-U-LOUS) for reading. pop it up in jack in the box mode, put your book below the light and you're all set to go. 500 lumens is more than enough to make it quite easy to read, even if (like me) your eyes aren't so good in dim light anymore...
Now, while this lamp is fantabulous in jack in the box mode, in compact lantern mode, I might temper myself to call it just "very good". It's still very bight, but the dispersion of the light doesn't quite feel as broad as with other lanterns I've used. Now, it burns at 500 lumens, so even without huge dispersion, it's still quite usable. It's just not the game changer that it feels like in open mode.
As for amenities, beyond the jack in the box mode, it has a variac dial that allows you adjust the brightness of the light (to presumably save on battery life). If you turn the dial to the left, it shines with a muted light that vasillates in color. I can't imagine any long term use for this unless you have 2 year olds around to amuse, but it's there.
There are also 2 USB ports that will allow you to charge your USB device (presumably a phone). They don't give specs for these ports, so I tested them (see pics) and determined they offer 5V/1A charging--pretty standard. The lamp is powered by a rechargeable 8800mAh Li ion battery (included), so while using the charging ports is going to steal from your run time, there's plenty of juice to recharge even the biggest phone batteries roughly twice if you so wanted.
Note that the lantern does not come with a charger or USB cable. You need to supply those yourself.
In my testing, with the lamp fully charged and on the highest light setting I got close to five hours out of this lamp. That's pretty terrific given the amount of light it's giving off. If you run it at a lower setting you'd obviously get a lot more life. The company claims 70 hours on low. I didn't test that. But using it for low light reminds me of the old joke about how a study showed that mice lived twice as long on a near starvation diet. Punchline: Maybe, or maybe it just felt that way.
On the whole, this truly is a great lantern. Nice and bright. Good run time. Terrific extended jack in the box mode that easily allows reading. USB jacks that you could use for an emergency charge (or two) if need be.
The one caveat I'd mention is that because this uses a non-removable Lithium ion battery, if you are unfortunate enough to find yourself with a dead battery at a time of need, you can't just go to the cupboard and pull out a few emergency batteries. If you are likely to "be that person"--you know the one who forgot to recharge it last time you used it--then you might consider the sister lantern to this one, which uses replaceable batteries instead of the LiOn battery...
....(( see photos ))
One that is allows for a broad field of LIGHT .. which is very nice when it is pitch black out.. and you can illuminate the majority of the room you are in
2nd. the REALLY long lamp light that is possible w this product.
First I was impressed that the lamp allows rechargeable power for use.. it lets you Charge and re CHARGE this lamp
I would imagine. having this fully charged and using the rechargeable battery FIRST. up to 5 hours on high and 70 hours on low.then recharge w my auto battery or a portable battery charger for an additional 70 HRS>>>>
It also has an extension arm that elevates the light source from 12.5 inches to 26 inches,
It has a rather ODD leather carrying strap... but other wise normal
2 things I was not impressed w the charging cable included is only for use a weird power plug.... which WAS NOT INCLUDED>.. So you need to be prepared to supply your own charging cable and PLUG.
There is a ' fun' aspect to this lamp that allow for some COLOR LIGHTS to be displayed .. nice for a Camping trip or a backyard camp out But for me.. I want this for SERIOUS lighting for power outages and storms.
This is a rather pricey lamp so I would seriously inspect the spec's before going for it This isn't for a causal extra FLASHLIGHT... This is for serious campers or people like me that want it to use in an emergency situation.
That said .it is a Nice USEFUL product that will be a nice addition to our storm supplies.
The only thing I would improve is the stubby little cord. The little seven inch cord is problematic. It doesn't come with a charging cube, but that's not a big deal as it's compatible with any cell phone charging cube. But the cord is so short it's extremely limited where it can be plugged in. Shown in my photo on the kitchen counter. Cord is stretched to the limit.
Muy buena compra y buen precio
