Pros Very bright, easy to light once the mantle is attached, easy to adjust light output.Rubber-tipped legs, dimming feature, dual metal hooks for hanging, cool design, durable, easy to useDurable, packed with features, water resistant, floatsCompact, dual flashlight/lantern, lightweightVery long battery life, tough and durable, provides a nice soft diffused light
Cons Big, heavy, glass could break easily, loud.Could be brighter for large groups, replaceable batteries run out quicklyCan't fully adjust the amount of light output, limited to four settings, smallNo feet or legs, short battery life, limited featuresGlow-in-the-dark doesn't work very well, hook on the bottom is not very sturdy, hard to reattach bottom after replacing batteries.
Bottom Line This clunky behemoth is your go-to for lighting up a large area.The best all-around lantern for backpacking, camping, and power outages.This little lantern is tough as nails, magnetic and floatsThis pocket-sized light delivers in all the ways that a basic lantern shouldA durable lantern with exceptional battery life.
