Pros Rubber-tipped legs, dimming feature, dual metal hooks for hanging, durableVery long battery life, tough and durable, provides a nice soft diffused lightDurable, packed with features, water resistant, floatsCompact and lightweight, charges other devices, versatile for individual useSolar powered, packs up easily, bright
Cons Could be brighter for large groups, replaceable batteries run out quicklyGlow-in-the-dark doesn't work very well, hook on the bottom is not very sturdy, hard to reattach bottom after replacing batteriesCan't fully adjust the amount of light output, limited to four settings, smallDifficult to hang, need outlet or battery pack to chargeLight array difficult to arrange, carrying case awkward to store
Bottom Line If we could only choose one lantern, this would be itUnmatched battery life in a traditional, durable lanternSweet little lantern that's tough as nails, magnetic and floatsA tiny, lightweight flashlight and lantern with USB charge in and outA set of solar-powered string lights that bring some fun to outdoor gatherings with friends
