Now that I think about it, perhaps that's why I like my tiny Class A RV?? Ah well, whenever I see a new, inventive or just plain cool light, I can't resist. When LED's began to come on the market, the number if nifty lights expanded dramatically. I am literally like the proverbial "kid in a candy store!"
I am not particularly fond of the 5600K "Daylight" color of the LEDs. Some people really love the way it looks, but I still prefer the 3200K "Regular Old Incandescent Bulb" color. Sort of an orange-y yellow. Seems... homey-er.
It's also got a convenient handle that can be used to hang the lantern wherever you need.
Since it's powered by 3 full size "D" cell batteries, it should last a VERY long time. The batteries do make it a bit heavy, but that's OK. It will be much harder to tip over.
I had a bit of trouble getting the battery cover to close properly when I inserted the batteries. It's a water-tight compartment and has a thin silicone seal around the edge. It only goes completely on in one direction (there's a locating tab so that was OK) but you have to simultaneously push it down AND start the center screw. After a few tries I finally managed to get it on properly.
In the House, WITHOUT a flash, my old digital camera shows it's pretty bright. Even on LOW. On HIGH you couldn't see the lantern in the photo at all!
When I held it up to a window and turned it on, it lit up a HUGE chunk of my backyard. Some of that is likely reflected light from the snow cover though.
All in all, a nifty piece of equipment. Whether you use it for emergencies, walks at night or just supplemental light, it will work well and look cool doing it.
