Not a great deal to say about this product. How much can one really say about a lantern? The label lists it as producing up to 300 lumens of light, and one thing I can say about it: it's bright. In fact, the highest setting is almost too bright. I actually can only imagine a few very extreme situations in which you would need the high setting in an emergency... like intense reading or medical triage. It's seriously *THAT* bright. It hurt my eyes; I couldn't look right at it.
Runs on three D batteries. I purchased it at Lowe's Home Improvement yesterday for $16. Definitely worth the cash for your emergency preps, in my opinion. See additional pics below, and please excuse the mess. I just got my desk moved, and I'm still partially living out of boxes.
|My very dark home office. Those strange, multi-colored lights you see aren't aliens; that's a hibernating computer and the power on my UPS backup system.|
|Same home office, illuminated on the Low setting. Please excuse the mess.|
|Again, same space but this time on High.|
