LED 4 Watt 3D 240 Lumen Area Lantern
Very well built lantern. Small but bright enough for the job. Actually ordered another one after trying the first one.

Lights up a room pretty well!
Seems as bright as a small wall powered table lamp, but much easier to light up a whole room from the center, or hung upside down overhead. The flashing LED pilot light can't be turned off, but seems to draw almost nothing from the batteries. I store it with batteries next to it, not a bad idea anyway. If we loose power at night I will need a flashlight to install the 3 D cells, and then it will be easy to find when shut off. Long battery life is great for long power outages we have here every couple years. Plenty of light to cook and eat by.

We think it will be wonderful;gift not yet given.
This is to be a gift for our grandson who will be turning 10 in early July. His parents are giving him a tent, and we felt our gift would be a great accompaniment. Will be eager to hear his reaction -- we expect it will be most favorable.

We have really counted on the product at our school when the power goes out!

The size is nice, and the amount of light is great. Hanging is adaptable to locations..
I bought three of the LED 4 Watt 3D lanterns last year for myself and two adult sons. We were impressed with how well made they were, and, we all found them extremely useful in a several day power outage. Two of my friends saw mine and asked me to order one for each of them. Hopefully, I won't need the lantern often, but it gives me security to know it's there.

Not quite as advertised.
First of all, there were no instructions as to how to put the batteries in - had to refer to the YouTube video posted by a young woman for that information. Second, have not had a chance to use it in a real power outage situation; just took it into a room with no windows (at night) and turned it on. I was disappointed that it was not as bright as the reviews posted on your website indicated. It will work, but expected it to light a larger area. At least there are no shadows to interrupt the light display, that is good. It was too much trouble to return it, so am keeping it, but will not order on line again.

Great little lantern
The lantern is small but still lights up a room.
Tried one then bought 4 more.
Being battery operated takes away the worry you can have with oil lamps.

Everything you need in an emergency light except for the instructions ...
This is clearly a superior product ... very bright light for its size and only 3 D-size batteries. The flashing "EZ-Find" light above the switch literally makes it easy to locate during a power failure. Since the breaker panel to our home is OUTSIDE of the house (common in Florida), if you trip a breaker at night, this light is VERY handy to keep nearby the front and back door. These double as a light source in case of a power outage. Also I keep one in the RV, one on the boat, and one in the truck -- the strobe option is very useful to alert other motorists if you break down. The only problem is that the light comes with no instructions for opening and closing the battery cover nor how to turn the 3 functions on and off with the one switch -- Rayovac should print the basic instructions on the BACK of the label affixed to the product OR indicate that the instructions can be downloaded from the website, which I did (however, not everyone has a computer or Internet access to do so).
