This is the lantern that provides 14 days of continuous light on four D batteries. The lantern's LEDs use a fraction of the energy of traditional bulbs, allowing them to produce 160 lumens of bright light for 336 consecutive hours on the lowest setting (175 hours on high). Its cylindrical design provides 360º of unimpeded illumination, and the bulbs produce almost no heat, making the lantern safe for children and uninteresting to insects. The lantern has a durable waterproof case and it will remain buoyant and operational if dropped in water. An integrated handle ensures ease of portability and can also be used to hang the lantern for hands-free lighting. Requires four D batteries. 12 3/4" H x 6 1/2" Diam. (1 3/4 lbs.)
An excellent lamp. It was a horserace between this and an oil lamp for our reading lamps in the event that electricity fails in 2012; we purchased one unit of both for testing purposes in our home. Your lamp won out because the light is very white and clear, batteries last an incredibly long time, and with two of them, you can read a newspaper comfortably. Plus, no fire hazard from spilled lamp oil!
