Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good It’s shame it was great when it worked but one day it just stopped working. They're also made it so can’t take it apart to fix it if it does break. Just wanted to clean the connections but can’t access it without breaking it. Used it twice maybe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good design, as per usual from Kathmandu Great overall design: stable, bright, hangable, etc. Would have also liked a feature to switch to a far lower intensity too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Massive fail Bought this to take on 90 mile beach walk. Found its illumination was very poor. Upon taking the batteries out a piece fell out rendering the lantern inoperable. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, well-thought-out product I love the size and general robust feel of the lantern. I find the three light settings (Bright, Medium and Candle) very appropriate for different amounts of light I need. In all a product that just does what it needs to do without fuss.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product would not last I bought this product and only use it when the power is out at home, but it is not working after 3 years. Hence, it lasts less than 30 hours over its whole life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little lantern with warm light The lantern has pleasant warm colour tone of the light. Some other lanterns are not as warm as this one. For 14.99 GBP not a bad thing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Although this is a great size and gives good light, mine wore out very quickly. It is obviously not water resistant at all as the batteries rusted out inside after a couple of months and was then no use at all. We used it camping a couple of times only so very disappointed with this product.

If the bulb needs replacing, what types of bulbs are compatible? Is there a warranty?

Asked by: Mei1
This lantern has a Nichia NS9L383 Warm White LED bulb. We have a warranty on all our products to cover any fault caused by the manufacturing, this is not time dependant and assessed best in person with a discussion on the care and use of the product and then consideration to what the fault is and when the fault presented.
