    Great for camping

    posted by fureiya on 09/05/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    The quality is great. It looks good and feels solid. The plastic has a matt surface, that's nice. Multifunctional light. Quality/Price combination is perfect. Great for tent or cabin. Or maybe you can keep it as a emergency light in a car.
    Cons:
    The power button is between the case and the glass, so when you are using it as a flashlight you first have to pull open the gl...

    Ok lantern

    posted by CustomerService on 04/20/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Does what it's supposed to - makes light:) Clever design that allows folding the lantern together requiring minimal storage space.
    Cons:
    Larger than I expected, which in my case is bad, but others may want a larger lantern. I was looking for a more pocket sized so...

    Nice Lantern

    posted by desertdawg57 on 02/25/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    This is a nice lantern. Good as a night light (first click) inside the tent, reasonable light as flashlight (second click) and good light at click 3 as full lantern.
    Cons:
    Build quality does not justify high price. Very "plasticky" feel; transparent plastic is easily scratched. Inconvenie...

    Retractable 1 x 3W CREE P4 LED + 8 x LED 3-Mode Bivouac Camping Lantern

    posted by ipsa666 on 12/10/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It's compact and light to use for camping or hiking, and even inside the house.
    Cons:
    The torch lens is made with cheap plastic, so it isn't that clear to use as a torch. Also, I need to see the video on DX site,...

    Excelent lantern

    posted by TheDrot on 10/09/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Excellent production quality. Really bright Cree LED. It uses cheap and always available AA-batteries or rechargeables like I have. Good quality plastic. Several modes of operation. Compact design.
    Cons:
    Note this is not water proof, I think it can keep small splashes of water outside. Not enough clips for the legs. Inconvenient ...

    LED camping lantern

    posted by bretta9x on 07/18/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    i bought this lantern to use in the house in case of blackouts it is small enough to fit in a bed side table and is good enough to keep me out of trouble, and with it being LED it should last a long time, with it's fold out legs it is good for putting on th...
    Cons:
    this is not a big problem but a frosted lens may disperse the light more evenly from the lantern

    Good lantern / flashlight

    posted by Kozer on 06/28/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Really bright Cree LED. The 8 standard LED's are not as bright but still useful as low-light illumination. As a lantern, you can switch between having just the Cree LED, 8 LED's or both on at the same time. As a flashlight, you can only use the Cree LED....
    Cons:
    The retractable plastic housing does not slide all that well. Mine arrived with the plastic top cracked and chipped. I guess ...

    Quite good, could be some dollars cheaper

    posted by PVMAND on 10/12/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Seems to be good quality plastic. Retractable feets, for me it was important that it uses cheap and always available AA-batteries or rechargeables like I have. You can use all leds (8+1CREE), or just 1CREE or 8 traditional LEDS.
    Cons:
    Can not find any, maybe postage: it took long time to arrive to Europe. Sometimes postage is fast but now really slow.
