One of the best lanterns ever made. This is the best price on one to date. Get the batteries included as you'll never find 4x 18650 3000 mah for this cheap.

Lowest price to date. $63.99 if you want batteries and a charger.

This goes for $84 on Amazon.

CCT ramping from 2700K to 5000K with 90 CRI LH351D LEDs.

Worth paying the extra cost for the batteries as you won't find 4x 18650 button tops for less than the $13.99 additional cost.

You removed the link to the site.

Their 3000 mah batteries are actually good quality. Rewrapped 30Qs

I highly suggest choosing the option with the batteries. Find 4x button top 18650 that are good are tough. These are high end batteries.


https://sofirnlight.com/sp31-v20-...p0015.html <- also an amazing deal on one of the best pocket lights out there today. Can't beat the price.

My use case would be when/if there's a power outage in the evening, is it worth it?

Yup! Paired with a battery bank, it would do very well.

Yes, when the 18650s died. The LT1 has USB-powered charging capabilities it appears.

Couldn't pass up a $64 lantern. Either it will go in my end of the world survival kit or my backyard camping kit.

You shouldn't need a battery bank unless your power is out for a very long time! I have one of these lanterns and it's by far the best battery lantern I've ever used.
I don't remember the exact runtime numbers, but it goes at least 4-6 hours on high, and it will run for multiple DAYS on lower output levels. Highly recommended!
