300 Lumens LED Ultra Bright Lantern Review

I applied to write a review on the 300 Lumens LED Ultra Bright Lantern because you never know when you'll need a light source. I live in Vermont, where it seems like it snows 9 months out of the year and when it snows, baby, it snows. A few weeks back we received a foot of snow and LUCKILY we didn't lose power. To have this lantern as a just in case is a relief, if the power goes out I won't have to search for the flashlights that my daughter has pilfered or dig for a lighter to light copious amounts of candles. This lantern will be in my closet, ready to just be turned on and set in the middle of the room.

The 300 Lumens LED Ultra Bright Lantern is good for:
  • Camping
  • Hiking
  • Boating
  • Emergencies 
The super high-efficiency LED light generates little to no heat and can be used continuously for up to six days! Which makes it a must have for any type of emergency because it's safer and longer lasting than any type of emergency candles.

It's made of sturdy rubber and ABS plastic construction for maximum durability and water resistance with a removable top for focused forward lighting or for use as a hanging area light. This lantern is compact (it's as tall as the length of my hand), making it easier to stow unlike some of those bulkier lanterns, but even though it's smaller doesn't mean it's not as bright!

I turned off all the lights in one of my rooms, turned on the lantern, and the entire room was lit up (see pic below). Then it wasn't until I went to turn it off that I realized it was on the lowest setting, there's one brighter setting, then there is a flashing setting. To change the settings is simple just press the button and keep pressing it until you get to the setting you desire.

Side notes:
  • LED lights are guaranteed for up to 100,000 hours of use and never need replacing
  • This requires 3, D batteries, which are not included
  • Has a small hook for hanging on the bottom as well
Would I recommend this product? Yes I would, especially if you're paranoid like me. It's always good to have a back up light source or if you like camping and don't want to carry around a bulky old lantern. The only downside I found was 3, D batteries...ugh, expensive, and they were definitely tricky to put in.

I received this product free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
