So. Here is what I think about....300 Lumens LED Bright Lantern from AYL #brightestLEDlantern

Here is another cool product that I got to try from AYL. This one is their StarLight 300 Lumens LED Bright Lantern. We use lanterns when we go camping but it's also great to have one around during a power outage at home. Flashlights & candles just go so far when the lights are out for any length of time.


This lantern needs 3 D-size batteries (not included). You have to twist off the rubber base of the lantern to install the batteries. When you are ready to put the base back on, make sure the the red arrows on each piece are lined up so it will go back together & lock in place.


Now you're ready! This lantern has 3 modes: low, high & flashing. There is also a green indicator light on the front of the lantern that blinks all the time. This is so that you will be able to find the lantern in the dark. Good idea!


If you want a more focused light, rather than the wide glow of the lantern, the top can be removed from the bottom.


The lantern is easy to hang with the handle that is attached. But if you want to hang it when it is separated, there is a hook on the bottom. Just lift it until it is open & hang the light wherever you need it.


LED lights are guaranteed for up to 100,000 hours of use. I think that's more than 10 years! In an emergency situation, this lantern is supposed to be able to be used for 6 continuous days. Thankfully I haven't been able to test that!

So. Here is what I think about the 300 Lumens LED Bright Lantern: I like that it has a high setting that would be handy at a campground & then a low setting that would be better for inside of your tent. I like that the green indicator light makes the lantern easy to find in the dark. I like the little hook on the bottom. And I like that it is water resistant.

So. Bottom line. If you need a sturdy, reliable lantern for camping or just to keep at home in case of an emergency, I recommend this one. It puts out a lot of light for a lantern that is a compact size.
