I really like this light. I like the dimmer feature, the 300 lumens, and the 4-batteries/8-batteries option. The folding part of the lamp is strong and useful. But I broke one of the two "screws" opening the battery case. So, this light is going back!
How could Energizer put so much thought into the rest of the light, but botch it on the battery cover??
BTW, battery life is "short" because the light is 300 lumens!
This is a great, versatile product for camping trips, to keep in your car in case you're stuck on the side of the road at night, or as in my case, when the power goes out at home. And stays out for hours, since you live in a neighborhood where the power lines short out every time the wind blows.
For several years I have been using the heavy, clunky eight D battery-powered lanterns and this LED Folding Lantern is light years beyond them. Much lighter, 180 degree OR 360 degree lighting area, and you can still control the brightness. Also, operates off eight AA batteries instead of the older version's eight D-batteries.
Be warned though, upon purchasing, you must take out the existing batteries, leave out for 30 seconds, then put them back in, for the lantern to remain powered on without cutting off arbitrarily. Otherwise it stays in "store display mode" where you push the power button on the back, and it only stays lit up for about 10 seconds. Unfortunately it does not explain this in the directions, and I had to make a call to the customer service line to figure it out.
