This is such a convenient lantern light. You can take it anywhere with its lightweight design and compact features. It provides more than 12 hours of continuous light with 3 brand new AA batteries. It is very bright and easy to use. Just pop it up and the light turns on. Push it down and the light goes off. Simple and easy and quick to use. It does however have a dim to energy saving mode feature which is nice. The dimmer lets you know when your battery usage is getting low and you need to change them. The lantern has foldaway handles, it is easily portable & has a durable superior design. It is great for indoor or outdoor use due to its heady duty waterproof casing. I actually tested this out in the bathroom just to see the brightness and quality. I am eager thought to use it camping and when were having fires outside. It will be great to walk back and forth to the house from the fire. I am very happy with this product and would consider using again. I received this product for free in exchange for my complete and honest review.
