This small, battery powered lantern is bright and works well. With the option to use a rechargeable battery pack or use 4 D batteries, this lantern is a good choice for car camping as well as having around the house for emergency use.


  • Bright
  • Takes battery
  • Takes rechargeable battery pack
  • Easy to use


  • (Feels like) cheap plastic

I bought this lantern to mostly to have around the house for when the power goes out. I have taken it camping a couple of times and it works great. There are two light modes of low and high, but there is not much light different between the two. They are both pretty close to the same brightness. 

The lantern takes 4 D batteries and has the option to buy an additional battery pack that is rechargeable. I just use batteries because they seem to last a very long time in this lantern. 

This is not the brightest lantern ever, but it will light up any tent and is helpful to have when walking around the campsite. It seems that it would break pretty easily if dropped because the plastic seems very flimsy, although nothing has broken on it yet and I have had it for a couple of years. 

I think that this would be a good choice for anyone wanting a basic battery powered lantern. It was pretty cheap at Walmart, although I don't remember the exact price I paid for it. (I believe it was around $28).

The Coleman Classic Rechargeable lantern lets you have fun long after the sun goes down. And it accepts a rechargeable battery pack so you don't need to keep buying batteries.


Take the water and impact-resistant Coleman CPX 6 Classic XL LED Lantern anywhere you need extra light. This lantern shines 350 ultra-bright lumens more than 30 feet on its high setting. CPX system compatibility lets you choose your power: four D cell batteries or one CPX 6 rechargeable power cartridge. With a runtime of up to 15 hours on high and 125 hours on low, the sun will come up before you need fresh batteries. The large handle makes it easy to carry anywhere. The reduced-glare Cree LED runs cool and lasts a lifetime, so it never needs replacing.
