Emerson 20 LED Utility Lantern
battery LED lantern
Having worked with LED lights in the past, I was expecting this to be a bit brighter or that the range with the gradient dial to greater. As it is, it does provide light that can be adjusted as advertised. It is compact and has a thin protective plastic where glass would normally be in a traditional lantern. The LED lights are not replace-able and the unit will have to be tossed instead of repaired or maintained in the future. I think that it serves it's purpose well though and it works as engineered.

Don't waste your money
Pros: Absolutely nothing.
Cons: Where to start...
Dimmer dial should read "dial that makes lantern light flicker uncontrollably". Bottom battery cover is too hard to remove and reinstall. Batteries fit in so tight that you need a knife of screwdriver to pop them out. So tight that part of the plastic battery box broke by just popping a D cell. Normally I would return a piece a garbage such as this but got more satisfaction by feeling the cheap plastic crush under the weight of my foot after it literally fell apart while carrying it.. Bass Pro Shop remove this piece a garbage from your shelves!

My family and I have used this lantern for well over 5 year and have never had an issue with how it works or the quality.

All 3 lanterns did not work.
Very difficult to unscrew the bottom and extremely difficult inserting and removing batteries.
I put them back in the mail the next day for my refund.
