Coleman Lantern

Disclosure: I received a product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

This little Coleman 4D LED Camp Lantern lights up a whole room!

This is not your grandparent's lantern! I haven't had a lantern in my hand for years!! When I took this one out, memories of my grandmother's huge, clunky, very heavy metal lantern came to mind, and I admit my first thought was how could this one measure up? I thought that because her lantern was sturdy! The lightweight plastic lantern by Coleman measures up though, without a doubt, and only seconds of testing it brought that to light (pun definitely intended).

This very lightweight, but very durable lantern is made of plastic, and has a raised, easy on/off button on the front, that is a cinch to find, even in the dark. It comes with a sturdy handle and works on 4 'D' batteries (not included).  The beauty of the lantern is the amount of light it gives off. For a small lantern, it's pretty impressive that it easily lit up a whole room in just an instant. Running on five bright white LEDs, this lantern produces 54 lumens of effective light output.

We set up our Christmas tree in the (finished) basement this year, and the room it is in is huge. When we saw how great the light worked on the main floor in the smaller rooms, we took it downstairs to see how it would work there too. It did the job and then some. In a word, it is impressive. I'm thinking we should have one of these on each floor. It's perfect for when inclement weather temporarily takes out the electricity, and with this kind of lantern, there is no fire hazard!

The Coleman 4D LED Camp Lantern is designed to be
weather-resistant so it's good for use indoors/outdoors

The lantern can run up to 175 hours on new batteries, it is durable, and is built specifically to be weather-resistant, which means it is perfect for outside activities and adventures. Very reasonably priced at $16.99, this Coleman 4D LED Camp Lantern is the perfect item to stock up on for your home, or to give for a gift.

You can learn more about this and other Coleman product by visiting the website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

One lucky winner gets the same lantern discussed to call their own. Continental US entrants only.

  25. I'm glad you pointed out that the on/off button is easy to find - even in the dark! Anyone who has ever fumbled around in a tent (trying not to wake up anyone else) trying to turn on the light will truly appreciate this feature!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've always wanted to have this. My dad gave my brother and I smaller version of this when we were kids, but well, we were kids so it broke when we were playing "camping" in our living room. It would be cool to have one again and this time, I will make sure that it stays functional for the rest of its lantern life.
