We live in the northeast and 3 hours from the Atlantic coast. We get hit year-round with nasty storms, including hurricane, tornadoes, ice storms and blizzards. We often experience power outages and weather emergencies.
It’s important to us that we have several great rechargeable lanterns and flashlights on hand. When we lose our power, we use them non-stop until power returns. If you are an emergency candle user…I suggest you stop as those are a fire hazard and these lanterns are a much safer option.
The Rechargeable Power Bank Lantern is loaded with a bunch of great features! I love that while it’s semi-big in it’s size…it’s still light-weight (weighs only 1.11 lbs.) and really easy to use. I can carry it around or place it on a tabletop or counter. There are two different “white light” settings (high and low) and then there is that fantastic red light (emergency flasher light) that you can use during emergencies.
One of the best features about this Power Bank Lantern is the USB port so that you can recharge up your cellphone, ipod, iPad or Android Tablet. The run-time on this lantern is fantastic too! If you run it on the high light setting you’ll get about 3 hours. If you run it on the low light setting you’ll get about 8 hours. That’s really good for a lantern of this size and power.
Back in early October we took our new lantern outside in the middle of the night. It’s pitch black outside with no nearby street lights. As you can see with my 2 nighttime photos…we got great light output with this lantern. It really lights up a large area!
We are very pleased with this new Rechargeable Power Bank Lantern with 700 Lumens from Dorcy. We all need to have multiple lanterns and flashlights in our homes, cars, places of business, recreation vehicles, boats and so forth. This item would make a fantastic holiday gift for anyone on your holiday gift-giving list!
Love this lantern but looking for one with a built-in speaker? If so, check out my previous review on the USB Rechargeable Speaker Lantern by Dorcy. It’s another Must-Have in my book!
You can purchase the Dorcy International 41-1081 Rechargeable Power Bank Lantern with USB Input/Output directly from Amazon for a really great price!
