Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RWX Great Idea, Major Flaw
Like many other reviews have stated, despite completely removing all batteries for several minutes this lamp remains in "try me" mode and shuts itself off after only a few seconds. It's worse than unusable.
Home Depot needs to pull these from the shelves until a solution is found.
Part of why I'm upset is that conceptually, this is a great product. It's bright, lightweight, adjustable, and I bet the batteries would last forever because it uses LEDs. Such a bummer.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by disappointed Stopped working
Worked well at first, but after the first couple days, it would turn itself off. Put new batteries in and it flickers a bit before turning off. Now it won't turn on. Very displeased.

This light is great for power outages and camping. Adjustable output, compact size and long running time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jane Great portable work light, for multi position illumination.
This is very nice for special situations where hand free operation is needed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Scotty What a shame!
What a shame. I love this light for 20 seconds and then it starts to flash and dim. I removed and replaced the batteries as instructed but it still repeatedly failed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ThickMick Little pricy, but so worth it.
This is a great lantern. Start off with it folding flat, it provides a good - bright light. Open the legs and you have a free standing light, and finally rotate the light up and you have a 360 degree light.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tommie Much improved product over previous. It's convenient to use and so accessible to handle in all situations I've encountered.
I bought this to replace my previous Energizer flourescent light, as the tubes are hard to find (I was disappointed about that). But was pleasantly surprised by this new product - which is lighter, requires more conveniently accessible AA cells, and is easier to carry around and set down for portable tasks. I feel it's a great value.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GaryB Contact Energizer About This Problem
I bought this light because of it's great light output when I tried it in the store but then I had the same problem that many other people writing these reviews have had with it sticking in the "try me" mode. I contacted Energizer and the customer rep told me that they had not had any complaints. She told me to e-mail her pictures of the light and the battery compartment. I did this and received a check for $32.00.
