Coleman Retro Rechargeable Full-Size Lantern
Nice that you don't have to worry about a mantle.
Price Paid: $30
Nice that you don't have to worry about a mantle. Not as bright as I thought that it would be. The AC adapter does NOT fit in the bottom storage compartment. It's a little too big.
I called Coleman and they are aware of the issue. They recommended that I tie it to the handle! I bought 3 of these as I have a cabin that is off the grid and thought that they would be great for the kids.
