Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by thebighash Nice & Bright Lantern... And a Dimmer!
This lantern provides great 360-degree lighting from 30 LEDs, which means perfectly uniform light in all directions.
The maximum output is 74 lumens and it is supposed to last for up to 12 hours on the maximum setting.
The lantern is light as it is made of plastic, but it's still solid and well constructed.
The dimmer is very convenient and works well. It allows you to select the desired light output and helps saves batteries. I provided 3 photos at different dimmer settings to give you an idea.
Four D Cell Batteries are included, which is always great and shows that the manufacturer pays attention to providing value to customers.

After several storms over the years that have left us with no power for many days, this lantern will be a great help. Sometimes a flashlight is ok walking around but a lantern is much better in a room. For now, I use it in the attic where the one light does not help me find stuff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ObjectiveReviewer Perfect lantern
I needed a good lantern for camping, so this is the one that I chose. I love the dimable light feature and the lantern is lightweight yet sturdy. When it gets dark, you don't necessarily want a bright light blinding you. This is where the dimming feature comes into play. You can have just enough light for you to see your supplies or to light your path and have complete control over how di or bright the light is. This product is very sturdy and great looking. The lantern is not too heavy, so it is no trouble at all if you have to carry or hold the lantern for a long time. This will definitely be brought with me for all future camping trips and used on the back patio.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KitchenKing Very Nice Little Lantern
I was extremely surprised by this little gem. It's very bright when on high, and the dimmer switch takes it on down to near nightlight brightness. It's made of plastic, but it feels very solid and seems to be well made. The dimmer switch just feels a little weak, like I'd better go easy on it or I'd give this lantern five stars... Without abuse, this will be perfect for the shop, or a shed when I'm trying to find something, and camping, and power failures, and... Oh Yes, batteries "are" included. The manufacturer even put one of those little plastic strips between the batteries and contacts so they're not discharged in shipping. Very thoughtful!

This is a very small little LED lantern... it is cute. I actually got this so that my daughter could use it to read on our camping trips and not have to use the trailer lights. Its a small size perfect for her, or for lighting a small room. The LED is bright, and it runs efficient. The dimmer works well and twists from off to maximum.
I was very impressed that the unit actually came with batteries included. They are still working and the lantern is running strong after a few times usage.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SouthernUtahBoy Unique dimmer switch sets this LED lantern apart
I have never used an LED lantern with a dimmer switch, until I received this one. I absolutely love the dimming feature. Most times I will have the lantern turned up all the way when I go camping. I place it right next to my propane stove so I can see what I am doing while cooking in the dark. This lantern provides plenty of light. When I need some light in my tent, I can turn the brightness down so I am not blinded in the middle of the night, and I don't have to worry about disturbing those in the immediate vicinity. This lantern would be great for power outages as well.
The lantern is well built, and the batteries last a very long time since this lantern in LED. In fact I have yet to replace the batteries after several uses. Gone are the days of using propane for light.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chabbie Amazing camp light!
I bought this lantern on sale for less than $6.00. I took it on a car camping trip recently, and used it for table and camp lighting for two nights. About 8 hours use in total. Besides providing fairly glare free lighting, the lamp didn't seem to dim at all. After returning home, i figured the four D batteries would be played out. I tested them and found them almost as strong as new batteries! I highly recommend this light, and hope Home Depot gets some more of them. They're currently not available!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Diabolik A very useful gift
Every year I buy a $10 Christmas gift for my team of technicans here at work. I picked up several of these lanterns on Black Friday. As stated, they are all plastic and fairly light. The overall construction is solid. There is even a screw on cap that installs over the battery compartment door on the bottom of the lantern so there is no way the batteries can fall out even if it is dropped. The dimmer switch seems to work well and it gives a nice steady dimming effect. On full brightness the lantern will easily light a decent sized room. Having a 360 degree light output is a great feature too.
I also really liked the fact that the light came with batteries. The manufacturer even installed a plastic insulator in the battery compartment that must be removed before use to protect the batteries from being drained. Overall, this product is a great value and something useful every household can use.
