Answer:
It's puts off very good light. Hard to say if it's super bright, but certainly much better than flashlights and very easy to handle

Answer:
Yes. The panels are charged from the D-Cell batteries. The entire lantern is powered exclusively by the D-Cell batteries. There aren't any plugin options of any kind.

I am not sure. I found this answer from another purchaser that might be worth a try. I plan on purchasing the adapters like it says...Hope this helps.
In these days of environmental concerns, recycling, etc., it is a bit ridiculous to still be producing devices that use D size batteries. The weight is a little ridiculous, too. Not to mention that in my previous Coleman LED lantern I had multiple sets of D size alkaline batteries leak while camping, which ultimately ended up ruining my lantern with corrosion. They were brand new batteries and I didn't even store this batteries in the lantern for a long period of time -- just while camping over a long weekend.
However, there is an easy way around that -- rechargeable AA's. I had previously purchased a set of Sanyo Eneloops rechargeable AA's that included D sized adapters ([http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003VLAEPQ/ref=cm_cr_asin_lnk] Sanyo Eneloop Ni-MH Charger and 8 Rechargeable AA and 4 Rechargeable AAA Batteries). This allows you to use AA's in the place of D's, which significantly reduces the weight while providing the same voltage and virtually the same charge life. The Eneloops are also low self-discharge batteries, so they can be stored longer without losing as much of their charge. I charged up the AA's, put them in the D sized adapters, and they work great in this lantern. Since the individual quarter sections of this lantern have their own rechargeable batteries that charge from the "D" batteries installed in the lantern, you may want to charge up the AA's, install them in the lantern, let the internal rechargeables in each lantern section charge up, and then put another charge on the main AA batteries before your trip. That's what I did, and I haven't run out of juice while camping yet. see less

Answer:
This thing is huge and durable. I try real hard to not drive over it or roll it down a hill... but I bet it would survive it all in stride.

Answer:
We always remove the batteries as we use storage containers when put away and moisture can build up inside them and allow your batteries to leak out all over the place. sad part is, you won't find out until you are ready to camp and need them again. :)

Answer:
I wrote a 1-star review because of that. My husband is a mechanic: really good at analyzing and figuring things out. The base is impossible to put on after the batteries are installed. We returned the lantern. Here's the review: Installing the D batteries was literally impossible. The base was very difficult to unscrew… see more I wrote a 1-star review because of that. My husband is a mechanic: really good at analyzing and figuring things out. The base is impossible to put on after the batteries are installed. We returned the lantern. Here's the review: Installing the D batteries was literally impossible. The base was very difficult to unscrew to begin with and requires a large strong hand to do it. After the batteries were inserted, my husband could not get the base back on and he's a big, strong, problem-solving mechanic. We gave up after studying the design (really poor) and wrestling with it at length. It's being returned. see less I wrote a 1-star review because of that.
