Rated 5 out of 5áby kalix Great for emergencies
Purchased this for a cabin in the woods of Maine. It's much safer to use when the electric goes out. Candles and oil lamps can be a hazard in the dark.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ABBADABADONE Safe and always ready.
The Coleman lantern is a so -much-better idea than a candle when there is a power outage. Never fear burning the house down.
I liked my first one so much, I ordered a second one.

Rated 5 out of 5áby tom65xke works well
After out latest power outage, bought one to replace an old fashioned kerosene lamp. Puts out a good light, safe to use. Cool to the touch. Easily carry around the house. Heaviest weight is the batteries. Have only used indoors so don't know how well it would work camping. Also have the smaller LL Bean lantern which works well too. This size puts out so much light that both of us can read at the same time during a power outage. Got a second one to take to our shore condo

Rated 4 out of 5áby NortheasternShopper Does what it is advertised to do
The lantern is as advertised. It gives off a fair amount of light and is easy to use. Make sure you look at the way the batteries are to be arranged when inserted, as it was not clear to me until I looked at the picture.

Rated 4 out of 5áby dmac53 Simple to use
Lantern is simple to use.Did not want a lantern with a remote as I would probably lose it.
Battery life seems to be very good on "low".Have not tried it for long periods on High.Seems well built.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Snowhuskyboy Practical, long-lasting light
This lantern is handy in the backyard, tent, campsite, basement, shed, or any place that needs a little extra, hands-free light. I have been using it with the re-chargeable Coleman battery pack and I have not been disappointed. The battery pack is easy to charge and easy to install. The lantern was still putting out light after 25 hours of use on the "high" setting. I've used a Coleman white fuel lantern for years, but this one is way more practical. It is much lighter and way safer. No more broken mantles to replace, fumes to inhale, or fuel spills to clean up. Provides good light. Two thumbs up!

Rated 3 out of 5áby tbonejoe Coleman lantern
I wish it had more metal parts, especially the base. It is mostly plastic. The switch seems to be rather cheap, and feels as if it could fail easily. Otherwise, it does provide adequate light for the intended purpose. It is light in weight, and a metal base may also make it more stable.

Rated 4 out of 5áby 1Kenny Coleman Lantern
My wife ordered this for me for Christmas in November, then we received a post card to say it would be delivered the first week of February so she was going to give it to me for Valentine's Day. Well we received a notice that it would be shipped on February 15th, so now it is a Happy Easter present.
Love the lantern but the high doesn't seem brighter than the low. We were out lights in January but it didn't come in time for the first blackout. We did try it and we liked the fact that it will be really handy in the next blackout. Batteries were easy to install and loved the life time LED light in it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby fantabulous interchangeable batteries
First off, I have just received the lantern and have not yet had an opportunity to use it. I also ordered, separately, the rechargeable battery which I feel will be the most economical. At this point, I would recommend that Coleman offer these two items together and leave the option to the purchaser which to use. The recharger allows one to permanently have it at full capacity as opposed to hoping the batteries still have life in them. Also, the rechargeable battery provides two options for recharging, one electrical plug-in cord and another for the car, which is an excellent option. This seemed, to me, to be an excellent, common sense item to have in the arsenal of emergency preparedness and also when light is needed for camping and such. I have a feeling I will be giving these as gifts. So far, my rating of 4 stars was due to my not having used it yet and the fact that the rechargeable battery has to be purchased separately.
