To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Was one of my favourite camping gear essentials for the last few months. I was about to buy another one and even write a blog about how great this thing is. But exactly 6 months (-3days) of light use (usually charging with a cable not solar) the lamp suddenly died and now wont recharge _ I've tried changing cables/plugs/sockets... nothing works. Its now just a piece of trash for the land fill. :(
This lantern works well although I haven’t tested it’s time length I have had it on for 4 hours and it was still going strong, it also has a usb charging option as another option. This item is not as big as it looks in the images, the height is 10cm the width 12.7cm sq which is mug size. The item is overpriced and I would say it is worth £20
Lasts longer than mentioned. 6-7 hours on high I am charging with 1amp 5 volt so charges fast 2.5 hours. I wish it was brighter and cheaper. Too expensive i am still thinking of returning. Very portable, it cant be ur main lantern it is an emergency one
My dad sent us one of these as a gift. It was supposed to be for us to use in the backyard, but I quickly adopted it as my bedside light (which I use while my husband is asleep, so a lamp is too bright). My daughter loved it too, so I also bought a 2nd one for her. I accidentally ordered the plain white-light one, though I prefer this color one. Didn't read the choices well enough so now I have an extra. Oh well.
This light is neat for many reasons. (1) It has 3 brightnesses for the basic white light. The dimmest one is fabulous for non-disruptive bedside light (2) Because of it's pop-up design, the more you open it, the brighter it is, and the more you flatten it, the dimmer it is. So within the 3 brightness settings, you also have fine-tuning controls, essentially. (3) It has little holes for hooks or strings on 2 sides, as well as a handle - you can hang it so many ways! And you can just use a little stick-on hook and flatten it and have a nice little light, or whatever. Options! (4) You charge it instead of using batteries! And it uses the same cord as nearly all cell phones! So I just plug it into my bedside phone charger when it dies (and it lasts a good long while, too) (5) It has candlelight mode! Flicker, flicker! (6) Colors! You can do a color-changing setting, or set it to just one color - again, brighter if open / dimmer as it's flattened. Sometimes I read by cyan half flattened. It's got a nice contrast. (7) It's light, and can be flattened, so super portable! And it opens to be fairly tall!
If used outdoors it's not going to be one of those super-bright lanterns that lights your whole campground. But it will be a nice ambient light that is plenty bright to do stuff by, and makes an awesome indoor light as well. And it's fun for kids to play with - which is why my dad bought it for us to start with. :)
