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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

By frugal shopper
from Brampton, Ontario
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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!

Not quite as expected
I thought these lanterns looked so nice and in fact for the most part they are. I ordered 2 sets, 1 for me and 1 to give as a gift. I have keep both, not because they are so great but because they look very cheap. One was broken, not broken that you can't use but looked as if someone had tried to open it up as you would an old lantern. These are not real and cannot be used as such. Of course this being winter I have not had a chance to use outdoors due to the fact they run by battery. I have tried them inside and seem to light up a room ok. Although I have kept mine, I would not recommend these to anyone.

Broooklyn Lanterns have some faults
Bought two packs of these lanterns,thought they would be good for power outage.Love the size ,but they have some faults ,two of the lanterns were not secure properly ,but after some adjustments were able to get them stable .,SO i decided to keep them Hope they will better constructed for future sales.
I would buy this again
Love these wasn't sure but when I got them they look great
they are gorgeous
When I opened the box I was so excited to see them. Usually the product is different from the picture, but the lanterns were exactly the same. Very silvery and bright light, dimmer is great, and they can be hanged in or out doors. I put them on the fireplace for show but they are also very practical in case of power outage. Just love them. They would make great gifts the price is right.
