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.
Other:
Battery compartment is inside lantern (just screw bottom cover anticlockwise open and add 3 AAA batteries). Note this is not water proof, I think it can keep small splashes of water outside.
Bottomline:
Yes I recommend this as I couldn't find better in this size, looked also from local shops here and too expensive.
