Good lantern / flashlight – Retractable 1 x 3W CREE P4 LED + 8 x LED 3-Mode Bivouac Camping Lantern Light w/ Strap (3 x AA) Reviews

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. Handy to have for emergencies or camping.
Cons:
The retractable plastic housing does not slide all that well. Mine arrived with the plastic top cracked and chipped. I guess the bubble wrap that it came in couldn't protect it during shipping. The power button cannot be accessed when retracted as a flashlight. Must slide open again before able to turn on/off.
Other:
Bottomline:
Great little lantern that can be retracted to become a flashlight. Bright, light-weight, and useful.
