Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Quads Very disappointed
The packaging was horrible (surprised it wasn't broken) No adapters st all and no DC wall adapter either. Can't tell if it's completely broken yet. Cranked on it for a while and can't get anything to work. Very disappointed. May not order through Home Depot online again

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Harold Really?!?
The first one I recived can broken and the would not crank. The second one was so clearly well used. It was dirty, has greasy finger prints and dirt on it from who ever had it before. It cranks but only holds a charge for a few minutes. I should haver returned it but have spent so much time and gas returning the first one I have not bothered. This ends my desire to shop online with HD. I just wanted a safe lantern to have for my young sons for our backyard campouts. :(

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Suey57 The lantern is light weight and easy to use the hand crank. Adapters do not fit popular phones (iPhone)
The light portion of the product is very good. However, one of the reasons for the purchase was the advertised capability of charging cell phones. The charging adapters do not fit either of the common phones that my husband and I own. Very disappointing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnnyC7 Hand Crank Powered Super Bright LED Camping Lanter
Item received as promised.I have two other hand crank lanterns and this one is by far the best.Even though it's made of plastic it doesn't bend and crackle when you crank it.The LED light is good and bright and the on/off switch is a good feature.I would recommend and buy again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by darthcook Good lantern for what it is
I ordered this lantern, plus a few other brands, for use at our cabin when the power goes out as we never seem to have the right batteries. When it, and its counterparts, arrived, we set them all up and turned out the lights to see how they would do. We quickly discovered two things: 1. There is little appreciable difference in the brands, and in fact the one other brand and this one seem to have come off the same assembly line and 2: That hand crank LED lanterns are just not that bright. They will do fine in tent, or in a pinch when there is no other light source, i.e. getting down the hallway to the bathroom, or back to your car in the woods, but I would not plan on these lanterns providing primary lighting for extended reading, or cooking. For the price, the quality of construction is fine, the crank handle, while a bit awkward (they all were) seems to be of solid construction and the body is functional, but not rugged.
While the light output is less than I expected, overall, these are a good value for the cost and what they are.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Light is great but phone adapters are for out dated phones.
Love not having to replace batteries. Limited cranking and it works great. One negative is the three cell phone adapter plugs seem to fit only outdated cell phones. Cannot use to charge cell phone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WeatherReadi Lighweight Reliable Light Source
Easy to use. Just hand crank a few times and you have LED light during a storm or camping. It is very light and made mostly of plastic, but don't let it fool you it's fairly durable.
