Pros Compact and lightweight, charges other devices, versatile for individual useRubber-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, floatsSolar powered, packs up easily, bright
Cons Difficult to hang, need outlet or battery pack to chargeCould 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, smallLight array difficult to arrange, carrying case awkward to store
Bottom Line A tiny, lightweight flashlight and lantern with USB charge in and outIf 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 set of solar-powered string lights that bring some fun to outdoor gatherings with friends
