I have this same lantern, and use it when ever a storm is coming. Plug into the outlet it recharges, and when the power gos out we have light. This was the case when Sandy hit the power went out and the light came on in the middle of the night, and the night light feature stayed on all night. Bottom line I purchased 2 of these lanterns for Christmas presents on request from mother in law who was at our house when the lights went out. There is no way that she will stay in the dark.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Panda Requires a lot of fiddling!
Not only did I have to plug this lantern in to charge it up, but the instructions said to discharge it fully and recharge it at least three times before trusting it to function fully off the power cord. In process of doing that the bulb developed a black shadow at the bottom and the full power became no brighter than the low power. I think the bulb needs replacing. I like the nightlight feature and the idea that even if the lantern is not charged that when the house power goes off at least the LED nightlight feature will work. However Coleman's regular 8-D battery-operated lantern is a lot simpler to use: drop the batteries in and simply turn it on when needed. If the batteries deplete with sitting I have extra batteries to replace them. Much simpler. I'll probably buy and new bulb and keep this rechargeable lantern, but I am disappointed. I have another Coleman lantern that I have had for over 20 years, and only had to replace the battery one time and only had to replace the light bulbs once. What happened to it? The switch needs to be repaired (and I'll probably get the new switch). I love my Coleman lanterns. Sure wish this one lived up to my anticipation.
