As I must have commented on at least six prior iterations of the EXACT SAME DEAL made FP by SD, this lantern is crap, it won't last long. I bought two, was the case for both. SD will be happy you bought it because they'll get their commission, but you probably won't be.
"Friends don't let friends buy Meritline deals that SD pumps by putting it on their FP over and over and over again."

Just FYI about the light, I ordered one last time at this price and the power button is upside down and inside the light there are fingerprints all over it.
Probably a return from the guy that posted just before you. Sorry you guys seem to have gotten bad ones because I think they work great, especially for the price and what they are. I have 4 of these little lanterns and for $2.50 each, I'd buy some more. They throw off an incredible amount of light, the battery life is yet to be determined because I've never had to replace them and my power goes out often at my house so I have used them many times. I will admit that one of them has a flakey power button but if I click it on and off a few times, it works and the springs in all of the buttons feel strong so I don't get the sense that any of them are about to break. All-in-all, for $10, I'd buy another 4 of these if the deal wasn't dead. I like to set them up under the shades of the lamps in each room, and one in our Kitchen hanging light, that way they spread the light around even better, and it kind makes it seem like the power is not off which is comforting to my 2 year old. For some reason he feels uneasy when the power is out. .
