9 Watt 8D Area Lantern
The brightest light
When Hurricane Sandy left our home without light, my grandmother's Rayovac lantern was extremely helpful. My dad recently ordered "Brooklyn Lanterns." He saw a commercial and thought the lantern would be sufficient. They weren't, so he returned it. Rayovac lanterns are much better.

My new lantern arrived sooner than it was expected which was great. The addition of the night light was a great improvement. Great job to the Rayovac team.

I was able to read an entire book with the light from the lantern.
During hurricane Sandy it was a life saver, so much so that I purchased five more as gifts to my neighbors. We (all) banded together at that time and shared.
They LOVED my Lanterns!

Use this in power outages and it is great. The three adjustable settings, brightness and portability are wonderful. Bought two more for the house loved the first one so much

bright, but poor battery life
It is physically impossible for a light to use 18 watts for 15 hours on 8 D cells. That would be 270 watt hours or 33.75 watt hours per cell. Furthermore, at 18 watts, the lamp would draw more than 2amps per cell. The larger the draw on a cell, the less energy you can ultimately get out of a cell. It is unlikely you would get even 4 hours of run-time from 8 D cells at 18 watts. It is further confused by calling it a 9 watt lantern, but saying it has an 18 watt bulb. Even at 9 watts, 15 hours is quite long and would consume 135WH

Wish I had it during Hurricane Sandy.
Could have used these lanterns during Hurricane Sandy - managed with flashlights and candles. A friend recommended this lantern, so now I'm more prepared when the power goes out longer than anticipated. The price was right and shipping was prompt.
