I love my lantern!!! Just used it on a 7-day beach camp in my pop-up trailer. I wanted a lantern I could depend on, that wouldn't need battery replacement every time we go camping, and that could be counted on to stay powered during an entire campout. This is it! Fully charged, it lasts for 80 hrs on low, which was bright enough to set a homey ambiance in the trailer AND to use for my bedtime reading. Never needed the high setting. I was ready with my portable charger, to recharge if needed, but didn't need it. Now I just need to remember to charge it once in the winter off-season to keep the battery in the best condition (as recommended in the simple instructions).
I now have four of these and absolutely love them. Not only do they provide all the lighting I need in my cabin, but also are very good looking lanterns. I get compliments on them all the time. If kept on low, the charge will last for a long time.
This lantern has been well worth the wait. I had wanted the Bronzed version and patiently waited for a stocking notice… and hit the order button immediately. The lantern is fantastic
I love the look of this lantern and it’s durability. The light cover is made of plastic so not too worried if it falls but wish the price wasn’t so high (doesn’t come with storage bag). The charge holds a while too, did not have to charge over a weekend. Like others have mentioned, it’s a cool light, not warm and ambient as stated. But it got the job done.
Decided to purchase two forest lanterns after first encountering them while "glamping" with UnderCanvas in the Smoky Mountains. Adjustable brightness means they can be used on bright (and I mean BRIGHT), or adjusted to a soft, golden glow. LOVE that they are rechargeable and last so long before needing to charge again. Perfect workable, and affordable solution for outdoor lighting while entertaining this summer in areas where we don't yet have hard scaped lighting sources!
