There have been slightly better deals on the Thorfire branded version of this lantern/flashlight combo, but I see that current prices make this a relative bargain at the moment. It appears identical versions of this product are sold on Amazon under the Thorfire, Kizen, Ledgle, Crazyfire, Bigfoot and other trade names.

One being marketed under the "ForFar" brand is currently selling on Amazon for the same price ($10 shipped free with Prime). That might interest those who aren't comfortable ordering from trekrtech. https://smile.amazon.com/Forfar-Emergency-Powerbank-Collapsible-Rechargeable/dp/B01L8UV4ZU/ref=sr_1_... [amazon.com]

I do have the Thorfire branded version and it certainly appears to be exactly the same product. It's a very effective lighting option and has performed well on camping trips over the past few years. But with everything happened in the Northeast at the moment, I'm currently using it literally every morning and evening for three days and counting. I'm very thankful to have it as the flexibility to go from spot to area lighting is really useful when the power goes out.

FYI: this thing supposedly doubles as an emergency powerbank for your cellphone (it has a micro USB input port for receiving a charge, and a full size USB output port for charging other devices) But I haven't tried that particular feature yet.
