(Product Review) 2016 2nd Generation, BYB Super Bright Portable COB LED Camping Lantern, Collapsible Emergency Flashlight for Preserving Your Night Vision, Lightweight and Water Resistant
Whether you enjoy camping, are stocking your prepper needs, or want it for just around the house, this 2016 2nd Generation, BYB Super Bright Portable COB LED Camping Lantern, Collapsible Emergency Flashlight for Preserving Your Night Vision, Lightweight and Water Resistant is a great little lantern that will be a great thing to have when the need arises.
This little LED light uses COB technology for a very bright light with low power consumption. This lantern operates on 3 AA batteries, which are not included in your purchase, but are readily available at most stores. \
There are two collapsible handles which can be folded up or extended for hanging your lantern from a tree, hook or nail. The lantern is made of a heavier plastic and is very lightweight. It measures about 3 inches in diameter and just under 5 inches tall, but puts out a lot of light for such a small lantern.
To operate the light, you simply pull the top upwards. You can pull it all the way until it stops to expose the greatest amount of LED for maximum lighting, or you can pull it partially open for dimmer lights. It is easy to adjust to the required amount of lighting, and there are no buttons or switches.
The light is operated by opening or closing the lantern. Opening the lantern turns it on, and exposing more area by extending the top further adds more light. Closing the lantern turns if off. I really like this lantern for camping, power outages, or other emergencies, as well as just to have around the house when a little extra light is needed.
I do wish it were rechargeable, but at least the batteries are a very common type that isn't too expensive. I am happy with my purchase and will be using this lantern a lot this summer.
