Answer: 
There are three light settings to meet all your area light needs—high, low to conserve batteries and nightlight, try moving the switch in a different direction.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 62 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Quality Product Good product for a couple of uses, but then only one bulb would light on high setting. What a waste of my money. I'll look for a Coleman to replace it. March 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect lantern I bought this lantern last minute for a camping trip it worked perfect for our trip. I have it stored in a closet in case of a power failure. August 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product If You Want To Set Something On Fire Bought this today because of the upcoming ice storm in case the lights went out. Got it home and it didn't work at all so took it back and exchanged it for another one thinking maybe I just had bad luck first time around. Got the replacement home and the 2 halogen bulbs didn't work at all but the little bulb in the top which I guess is the nightlight came on so I was like ok that will work good enough until after about 5 min. it started smoking and filled the house with a horrible acrid smell. The top of the light was extremely hot to the touch as well. Thank God we didn't leave it alone for any period of time. January 8, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worked for One Day I purchased this lantern as a replacement for my Coleman lantern which finally became slightly rusty in the battery compartment after I left it outside in the rain by accident for several days. The Coleman was not available at my local Home Depot so I purchased this one in anticipation of hurricane Sandy. It worked fine the first day, although I thought it should have been brighter. After that one of the two balasts started to flicker and finally did not work at all. On the sixth day the second balast finally went out, including the top light. I'm returning it and ordering A Coleman. November 7, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bright and reliable I've had the fluorescent lantern for more than 5 years and it has worked well during power interruptions, working in my boat at night, and working in the home attic. Very good area ligh. I have intermittently experienced the issue described in other reviews where only one bulb lights in bright mode but a couple twists of the power switch back and forth resolves it. My only issue with the fluorescent lantern is that the knob for the battery compartment has become detached from the steel knurled shaft, so it just spins in place without turning (loosening) the shaft. To remove the battery cover I need to twist off the knob and loosen the shaft with a pair of vice grips. Other than that it's been a reliable light that serves its purpose well. August 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy this Years ago I bought a Rayovac lantern, an dit is my go to light source in power failures. I wanted additional ones for other rooms, so I bought this new one. This is like the evil twin of my lantern. Here is what's wrong with it: 1. It has a horrible ochemical smell. I guess this is the plastic outgassing, but it is nauseating, and I couldn't keep the lantern in the house. 2. There is a design flaw in the battery compartment cover. In order to replace and tighten the cover, you have to align one center screw in the cover into a hole in the lantern. But you can't see either the screw or the hole when the cover is in position. I am not going to the trouble of returning this, but I won;t buy anything from Rayovac again. August 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good purchase Very bright and worked well to light up rooms after a power outage. We were very pleased by how bright it was and how useful. October 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great! Due to power outages in our area, I bought this lantern to help us through the dark nights. It works the best of any I have seen or used in the past and lights up a room tremendously. Best part is its portability and rugged construction. I would buy another one if need be and would highly recommend this to friends and family. Our power was out for two days, and we kept this light on the low setting the whole time and it worked great.
