AYL Starlight Camping Lantern

The AYL Starlight Camping Lantern is water resistant and shock resistant. It really can take a beating and keep on shining. It has 3 light modes, low, high and flashing strobe. I love the flashing strobe because it is great to have in an emergency. It measures 4 x 4 x 7.2 inches and weighs 14.6 ounces without batteries. It comes with a removable convex reflector cap that provides 360 lighting and that can also be removed to allow for more focused lighting. It has a hook at the bottom that makes it easy to set it up virtually anywhere, including using it as a tent light. It also features a watertight body that is complemented with plastic molding and rubber for maximum water resistance.
It uses LED bulbs with an output of 300 lumens, and will shine for at least 100,000 hours of use. Using LED light bulbs does make for a longer battery life which you will need because it requires 3 D batteries (NOT included), which to me is a lot of batteries for how compact this lantern. Decent batteries will cost you about $10, with LED bulbs they will last about 6 days of use and since this lantern is about $23.00 it brings the cost of this little lantern to over $33.00. Other than the battery issue this is a great product and I enjoy very much. It is bright and is easy enough to use that the whole family enjoys it. I received this product complementary for testing and honest review purposes. My reviews are never bought and always reflect my true opinion on the product.
