6 Volt Swivel Lantern
Comfort for my 88 year old Mom
I recently purchased your 6 Volt Swivel Lantern (2) for my 88 year old mom. She recently had carpel tunnel operations on both hands and is somewhat limited as to what she is able to do...like hold a flashlight and do things with both hands. She had a similar light that was probably 20 years old and she didn't think they made those models of lights any more...the ones with a stand. Anyway, after a quick search online, I found exactly what she needed from RayOVac and she is completely satisfied, (which is sometimes a difficult thing to pull off with yer ole ma). The product came as ordered...no damage..and more than met her expectations. She uses one by her nightstand and one for when she has to check her furnace down in the cellar. She chooses to live by herself on a 100 acre farm and to have a reliable source of light, especially in the winter and when you are alone, is a good feeling of reassurance. Thanks for a great product and prompt service.

This appears to be a quality product.
The 6 Volt Swivel Lantern appears very bright when taken outdoors in the dark. It arrived with a heavy-duty replacement battery, and the flashlight does have a place inside to store a replacement bulb, but extra bulbs must be purchased separately.

This is a sturdy and very useful product
The 6 Volt Swivel Lantern is lightweight to carry but very well made. I've had mine in rain and mud, and I have accidentally dropped it onto a floor. It has come through all of this just fine. It gives plenty of illumination, and the ability to have it sit at an angle is very handy. The handle makes it comfortable and easy to carry as well. Rayovac has a winner with this product, and the low price is greatly appreciated too.

I've had one of these for quite a while. I use it in a crawl space at my daughter's house. Great that I can tip it up to see what I,m working on in that dark space. I keep one in my bedroom in case the power goes off. Showed it to a friend and he had me get him one. The 2 I just got are going to be Christmas presents for my grandsons. I ordered them from you because I couldn't find this model in the stores. Thank you.

Probably The Best 6 Volt Lantern On The Market
For 26 years I have been using 6 volt swivel lanterns in my plumbing business. I have seen all types and none of them were all that great. The brightness was poor or the swivels wore out or broke. One of the plumbing supply houses I deal with started carrying this Rayovac model about five years ago and I bought one. First thing I noticed was the superior brightness! The swivel held quite well and this is a sturdy well built item. I drop them all the time and only one lantern has broken and that was from a nasty fall. The bulb holder broke, but it was a dead-fall on concrete. I have probably owned 15 of these lanterns and the reason for that is I lose them on jobsites.
I have one for the house, two for the work truck, and two spares in the garage.
I am now ordering my lanterns from Rayovac as my supply house is now, again, selling a poor quality lantern.
Here is an important tip: Lantern bulbs burn out like house bulbs, and they can get broken filaments if the lantern is dropped. Buy extra bulbs. Make sure the bulbs are for a SIX VOLT lantern or you may get bulbs for "D" battery flashlights and they will burn out super fast.

Good basic lantern with swivel base.
Good basic lantern with bright bulb. The swivel is great for use when you need to change a flat on a dark night. Nothing fancy to break. It works.
