This lantern is very bright. It’s probably equivalent to my Coleman propane lantern that I’ve used for years when camping. This lantern uses the newer “COB” LED lights which are like arrays of lots of LEDs in one chip. They are much brighter than individual LEDs put into strips.
It has no on/off switch, it just turns on when you pull it open. It’s very compact when folded. It also has two wire loops for hanging it.
3 AAA batteries are much cheaper and easier than propane (especially rechargeable ones). And it’s much smaller, lighter and less fragile. I think this will be replacing my camping picnic table lantern.
It’s currently available for $12.99 at Amazon: http://amzn.to/1OAJf5H
