This lantern lights up a whole room. You can read by it, but it is best placed between you and a book because of its brightnesss. It lights up an area about 12 feet wide at a campsite. I advise against pushing the valve down into the lantern as it can crack the plastic as I did, or else do it carefully.
Now available at Walmart for $15. I think it works much better than any $30 battery-powered backpacking lantern. It gives off a lot more light over a wider area and is easier on the eyes than your typical LED lantern.
We blew it up at the campsite and chose to test it by leaving it on all night and in the morning, it was still glowing. This from whatever charge it had built up in the store. We've left it in the rain, stored in a box, everything.
The ONLY reason we gave it an 8 is because:
1) pulling the plug to release pressure during a hot day or to store is a miserable pain.
2) as far as we can tell, it comes in white or frosted color-change. We want a clear red Luci to keep the bugs down.
3) their website is horribly unworkable as to queries.
Still, I'll happily purchase more of these.
