Review of Outlite 180 Lumen Collapsible LED Camping Lantern
Outlite 180 Lumen
Collapsible LED Camping Lantern, Solar USB Rechargeable Camping Light
Flashlight with 2 "S" Hook, Portable Water resistant Outdoor Survival
Lamp for Hiking Fishing Emergency Outages
Five out of five stars
This lamp has a
1.5 inch by 1.25 inch solar collector on the top and when recessed is an octagonal
shaped cylinder approximately 5 inches high and 3 inches across. It is turned
on by sliding out the top, exposing the four 2 inch long LED bulbs.
The amount of
light is enough to illuminate a tent or a short area of the campsite and it will shine for hours. There is
a metal handle for hanging or carrying and there are four ways it can be
powered/charged. There is the solar collector on the top, a compartment for 3
AA batteries, a power cord that can be plugged into a standard outlet and a USB
port.Recharging via the solar collector is slow, so it is a good idea to keep a supply of batteries on hand.
It is very
light, so it will not significantly increase the burden of packing it to a
remote campsite. The plastic case is hard, so it will resist trauma, although
the solar collector is no doubt more vulnerable.
