Rated 4 out of 5 by LoMein2 Light in the Dark
Got this lantern for a new shed. The shed is 8x8x10. Provides plenty of light to see everything. Got it hanging on a hook in the middle of the shed an it provides plenty of light. I like that I can take it off the hook and hold it if there is a specific area I need light.
I would recommend this lantern.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Moshe Emergency Lantern
I recently received this lantern and have only briefly tested it. Everything works as advertised. I intend it for power failures and the lower illumination setting seems to give adequate light for walking around a darkened house. I think you could read a book at the table on low, but certainly on high. The lumen output and battery life were much superior to the smaller lantern you sell. If I had an opportunity to use it for many hours in an actual blackout and it performed as well as in test I would have rated it five stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by smalltown1 Average at best
I purchased the lookout lantern to use while camping and during power outages. Upon receiving the lantern, I inserted fresh batteries and cycled through the four settings. I observed little difference between the high and low setting. The output is comparable to lighting a few candles at best. Very disappointed and would not recommend if you need to illuminate a room. It may be bright enough as a secondary light while camping such as a dim light to dress or undress with. On a positive note, it does have a decent build quality.

As usual, LL Bean has provided great service and great products. My Camp Lanterns arrived quickly and after adding batteries, they worked perfectly. When living in Maine there is only one place to shop-LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DDFROMTN Great little lantern
I bought 3 of these for Christmas gifts and they all loved them. It has so many uses. You can turn it on and set it somewhere instead of having to hold a flashlight in one hand and do whatever with the other hand. I have used mine several times when electricity has gone off. It will light up a room. Gave one to a teenage driver to keep in his car as it has a red light and the red light will flash if need be.
Great to use if you have car trouble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by laptopshopper Great gifts!
I gave two of these lanterns to family members for Christmas. They were delighted. The light is bright enough to use for camping or during a power outage. Also can be used as an emergency flasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheFlood Great Light Output
I have this beside my bed. It has great light output. I have no doubt it would fully light a tent. I like how the light is a soft white light, not harsh at all. The only thing I do not know at this point is how long the batteries will last. Good for car camping or around the house. Nice looking design. After researching the current offerings at Bean, I think this one has the
brightest and most long lasting output.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jdhga small lantern good for camping
I bought this lantern a few months ago and used it on a camping trip with my husband. It is small but puts out a lot of light, and I used it several times each night. He borrowed it a couple of times, and when we got home, he asked me to get one for him. So we now have two lanterns for our camping trips. It uses batteries, so I keep spare batteries in the box, where I store it between uses. I'm not sure how long the batteries last, but I have not yet had to replace them after three camping trips, two nights each. The handle on top is a little short, but I've tied a thin rope loop to make it easier to carry.

This is a small lamp. I should have gotten the bigger, more expensive one to give me enough light when the power goes out.
