I am only able to get the small light to light up. How do I get the tubes to light up?

Asked by: Jerry
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.

Sportsman Extreme 8D Area Lantern is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 71.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from rayovac twin tube latern I bought years ago, live in Florida, only really used when necessary, worked great ! Have been using more lately for a reading lamp, I have replaced batteries, just recently only 1 tube will light up, so i replaced both bulbs, so disappointed that bulbs havent fixed problem, only 1 side will light up, enjoyed it so much when both bulbs would work at same time, it was great to use when it worked properly. I would really like to get a replacement, it does state it has a lifetime warranty.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great until i changed batteries for hurricane Matt Great until i changed batteries for hurricane Matthew... once I changed the batteries it didnt go on so I found that the bottom wasnt tight enough so the more i tightened the more the light stayed on...I tightened it more and heard a snap and now i cant tighten it down at all and it wont work at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Predecessor model 10 years old and still working I bought for an active hurricane season. Haven't needed to change bulbs yet, 2 or three battery changes. If only one light works then its a warning to change the batteries soon. I typically run it dead then change the batteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have two of these Lanterns they are the best. I live in Staten Island New York city during hurricane Sandy I was without power for a few days. These two Lanterns got me through a dark period. If I ever have to replace them I would buy again in a heart beat. These Lanterns are safer then gas Lanterns.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality and service I purchased this 1 yr ago and placed in on a shelf. My power went out 2 days ago. I put the brand new batteries in the light and one of the tubes flickered and then went out. I turned the light off and then back on. The second tube flickered and went out. After that, they were both dead though the top light continued to work. I called customer service and they said they would replace the lamp but I had to cover the cost of sending it back. This would essentially double the cost of the lamp. Not interested in doing this and likely getting back another dysfunctional lamp.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Left dimwitted I liked the feature with hi, med, low settings...until the hi setting stopped working. Checked bulb, changed batteries, checked connections, still nothing. Kind of left me in the dark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent investment I purchased this lantern years ago for camping and its a workhorse using it for everything, still using the original bulbs even though its been banged around. Well worth the price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was a Lightsaver!! I had bought this for my husband for Christmas and it was still in the packing box. 4 days before Christmas an ice storm hit and we were without power. I took it out of the packing box, apologizing for revealing the present early. I was delighted in the amount of light it cast. I carried it around from room to room, out to the barn and back to the house. It did exactly what I bought it for - emergency lighting! Too bad the solution for no heat wasn't resolved as easily! We were the lucky ones that lived without for 3 days while others were without for 7 days in 20 degree weather!
