Good value for the price.
from Freshwater, Newfoundland
The lanters are attractive functional and inexpensive. I had problems with one lantern, I returned them and the folks at The Shopping Channel who replaced them with good ones. Other than quality problems from the factory I recommend these lanterns.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have to agree that the quality of the lanterns could be a little better, but the light they produce is remarkable. As I got these after experiencing several power outages this past winter, I am satisfied with the amount of light they produce and as I also got them at the reduced price I can say they are reasonable and would certainly recommend them.

Past reviews talked about the quality of the lanterns and I have to agree it is not great. I am glad I did not pay full price, otherwise, they would have gone back.The quality could be better. They are nice looking as they look authentic. The light is good, but the battery compartment was different on each lantern. One compartment was all plastic, the other lantern has a battery compartment that is part plastic, part metal. Not sure why the difference.I like that you can dim the light and control the brightness. I don't think I would feel it was suitable as a gift as the quality is lacking.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Nice and Bright
from RICHMOND HILL
I give 5 stars because at this price they are an excellent value! No they are not heavy high quality steel but they are attractive and give out a lot of light. I love the dimmer switch and will leave one on my deck as soon as we get some half decent weather. It will look amazing out there. I also needed a good light in case we lose our power again and these will be very handy for that alone. Great for a night table as well.I buy the battary's in the dollar store not expensive at all and I can recharge them when needed. All in all I am well pleased with this purchase.

Great Light; Not so Great Exterior
I ordered two packs of these Lanterns. After struggling thru several days of no power/light during the Ice Storm in December 2013 I wanted something that was both practical and provided good lighting.What I like about these lanterns:1. They give off a really bright light; 2. The dimmer switch is a good feature.3. I like that I can carry them around the house. Especially during power outages. What I don't like about the lanterns:1. The exterior is not of good quality. 2. The carrying handle constantly sticks and falls out of the holes that house the handle(s).3. I struggled with getting the batteries in.4. The D Type batteries, that are needed for the bright light, are expensive; and need to be considered when purchasing the lanterns.All the annoyances aside, and they are minor, the lamps provide the bright light that I was hoping for.
Love these Lanterns!
from Oshawa, Ontario
These lanterns are very attractive and look great sitting on my coffee table. They emit a very bright light that can be dimmed via a dimmer switch. They are great for power failures as when my power went out, I simply turned them on and the two of them provided enough light for me to safely manouever through my living room, dining room and kitchen. There was no fumbling in the dark to search for the flashlight! I opened my blinds so my neighbours would be jealous of how lit up my living room was! lol. Sure do wish I had bought these prior to the ice storm in December, 2013 when my power was out for two days. They went on sale after I bought two and I ended up ordering more for my brother and aunt. I need to order more for myself. They are definately worth buying a bunch to place in every room for when the power goes out. The handles make them very portable too. People keep asking where I got them from because they like them so much!

These lanterns are great, especially during a power outage. They do indeed light a room and the dimmer switch is a good idea. The metal exterior is "cheap" (not very strong), but it is of no importance to me, as long as the LED light illuminates sufficiently.

I ordered two, and sent them right back.I found them to be of very poor quality, even at the sale price I did not feel they were worth it.

Not very happy!
By Grandma M
At first glance they are nice, but a little flimsy. In my 2 pack, only one lantern worked. I asked customer service if I could just keep one and return the other for a refund. They said yes, but I would only receive a credit of $3. Now I am waiting for them to be back in stock so that I can return them for a replacement. So far, I have waited 3 weeks and may wait another 1 to 2 weeks before I can even start the re-order process. So glad I did not purchase these as a gift!
