The Uco Arka is a wonderful little lantern to have in your pack—so many uses from a very durable and reliable unit. Works great to charge my cellphone or GPS unit. A very practical light to keep in the house or car.

Absolutely love this lantern. So many uses as a light source from lantern, flashlight, nightlight, strobe, red, and emergency use. A big advantage is the ability to charge other devices, which works great.  

Three small legs on the base help to stabilize if using on a relative flat surface or two separate hooks at the top so it can hang anywhere. I pack two along with a solar panel and a battery pack so I always have ample charge in all my devices.

Great light with so many great options.
