This rugged lantern with 13 superbright LEDs helps illuminate your work area. Carry it with the easy grip handle or place it on your work area using the built-in feet.
It's not nearly as bright as I had hoped for, which is my own fault for expecting too much. It's built tough enough and since powered by 4 D batteries it should last a good long time before needing new batteries. But it is no brighter than my old 3D maglight running a single old fashion xenon bulb. If you want a super bright LED flashlight, try the pocket sized adjustable one MCM sells, part # 29-4668
Reminiscent of the old 6Volt lantern battery lanterns, only brighter, lighter, uses 4D batts, at about half the cost of the old heavy duty lantern battery, and about a third of the cost of an alkaline 6Volt lantern battery.
I don't know about battery life, as it still has the first set in it. That's 9 months, so far. Only Con, the switch is very stiff. Could be a Pro, if your worried about it getting turned on by accident.
MCM is our low cost, high product value source. Same quality as the more expensive vendors, without the "expensive." Always fast and dependable.
