Great Lantern with lots of features

After receiving this item I purchased another one I liked it so much. The handle is easy to crank and it runs for a long time on just a minute of hand crank charging. The handle is much better on this model than older ones. It is easy to turn and the overall design is better. We recently used the lantern during storms we had and it was well worth the money in not having to worry about being without a radio, light or trying to find batteries.
Worth the money

I’ve used this in a cabin in NH and during a few hour blackout at home. The light is too diffuse to read to, but it does the job to generally illuminate an area to keep you from bumping into walls or trip over a log. The radio works well, but it drains the power fast for some reason. The extras are neat too, like the siren and flashing lights and the ports to plug in cell phones. Well worth the cost.
Pretty good little item

This is a nice little gadget with a lot of features. The only thing I don’t like, which was not included with the description of the item, is that it does in fact have a “battery”, 3.6V NiMH. There are no instrucitons on replacement in the event that it is necessary to chage them. Other than that it does have nice features but only includes an adapeter for a Nokia Cell phone, not universal.
**Later bought one for a family member
Very sturdy. One light very bright for reading or rescue searching. The other is less bright like a night light which uses little battery juice and which would be comforting to a kid at night in an emergency situation. Finally, I was surprised at the quality of the am/fm radio. I picked up a public broadcasting station about 70 miles away, which was great because it carries good emergency information!
Decent lantern, has everything you need

I recently bought a Rayovac Sportsman Extreme for something battery powered and bright but I also wanted a wind-up in case of extreme emergency or being without any lighting solution or radio. I was happy to see my lantern came fully charged. I’ve yet to unscrew it to see what kind of rechargeable battery is in the housing but if I do, I will report back here.
Great for camping

I’ve used this for 2 full years of camping adventure and just love it. It is best to fully charge it from a car battery before you use it for the first time. When you first charge it make sure the car is running. We plugged it in over night once and woke up to a dead car battery. We’ve gotten in the habit of plugging it into the truck while we drive to our camp site. It lasts the whole weekend with just the occasional wind or two. We actually like to connect it to our I-pod and listen to music or on occasion when we’re not so roughing it we will connect it to the laptop to increase the sound for movies. Works great!
Works for me

It would be nice if this was a little cheaper, but even with it being somewhat expensive, I am tempted to get another one. The lamp is excellent, and the nightlight and emergency flash options on the light are even better. The radio works well, and its very smart of the designers to protect all the dials and controls of the lantern (and radio) under a plastic cover that is both secure but easy to pull back.
pretty cool, wind often

Super handy. Takes a while to charge. Almost once you turn light on it starts dimming. But if you charge ahead of time with plug in to car-cigarette lighter it would probably work better. So think ahead. Definitely the thing to have around when bad weather hits. It’s made in China, but I couldn’t find a lantern that wasn’t LOL. I would buy it again for sure.
it is what it is….
