This review is from: LYNEC Outdoor Camping Lantern Collapsible LED Lantern Flashlight Battery Operated lights for Hiking, Camping, Emergencies, Hurricanes This product is well thought through! Pros:1. It’s IPX3 waterproof (The first time I took this out on a camp was raining and boy am I glad this puppy is at least IPX3 waterproof)2. Has a SOS light pattern built in3. Ability to zoom light focus in and out4. Lantern with spring instead of plastic (kuddos kuddos)5. The hook design is great! Cons:1. If the product had some rubber grip on the outside, it would be easier to handle and won’t drop as easy.2. The infographic instruction is a little bit confusing (see picture)3. If the product’s orange case could be a little bit transparent, it could act as a warning light. In a nutshell:The day after I received the package, I took it out on a camp.It is a great little thing to have in your jacket pocket at night, specially when it be transformed into a lantern.Specially on raining days, it would be greatly appreciated if there were some rubber grips on the item itself.

This when closed acts as a flash light then when opened it turns into a lantern. I have never actually seen a retractable lantern before so this is very cool to me. Then is very simple to use and the lights are very bright. This is actually way brighter than it looks in the pictures I have included with my review. This is very portable and also very easy to store since it doesn’t take up much room when closed. There is a hook that folds it and out on the one end that way you can clip it onto something or hang it where you need it that way your hands are free. The end with the hook is also magnetized which can really come in handy. When closed this can be used as a flashlight. You even have the option to easily zoom in and out with the flashlight that way you can focus the light on the area you need to see. When you are ready to use the lantern simply twist it open and the unique spring action design turns it into a lantern. Then when done simply twist it back closed.. This takes 3 AA batteries which are not included. Here are a few tips on operating this. When you go to turn this on hold the power button down until it comes on. If you just push the power button it will not turn on. Once on, you can brighten and dim the lantern by pushing the power button (you do not hold the button down for this just press it). Finally to turn it off you hold the power button down until it turns off. This is perfect for camping, power outages, emergencies, or even just for everyday use around the house. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review.

It’s a flashlight when closed, and when you turn the little sliding button on the bottom it zooms in and out allowing you to have a more focused or wide beam of light. To keep from wearing down your batteries (3 AA required) from accidentally turning on, you must hold the power button for 2 seconds to turn the light on or off. While the light is off, if you click the power button quickly 2xs you will get an SOS signal. The bottom is magnetized and also has a nice little folding hanging hook so you can even hang this up or stick it to the inside of the hood of your car if you have to make a few emergency fixes in the dark. The bottom also unscrews so you can easily replace the batteries. When you turn the top of the light the lantern pops up, very cute! 🙂 Press the power button to change from dim to bright light. There is a spring inside that allows you to collapse the lantern to use as a flashlight again. The only thing you would have to watch for, is if you aren’t paying attention while you twist the top to open or close the lantern, you may accidentally unscrew the battery compartment as well. To avoid this, it’s easy enough to grip the gray middle area while you twist instead of holding from the bottom. This lantern is waterproof with a waterproof rating of IP43. This is the perfect little lantern for emergencies, camping, and fishing trips. It’s small enough to carry with you without adding too much weight, and it’s easy to hang up while you use it too. The bright orange color allows you to find it quickly when needed. I recommend this little lantern 100%! Product sample received for review purposes.
