Customer Reviews

Misleading lumens but good product overall Everything is as claimed, EXCEPT, the 300 lumens rating is misleading. Thought I don't have a spectrometer to confirm, I would agree that this lantern is very bright indeed. Problem? The light does not travel very far. Once you get beyond 5 feet from the lantern, the amount of light drops off like a steep cliff. Do not count on this being the main light source for your camp.Having said that, I would still recommend this to everyone. It is great for an immediate work area such as the camp table where you're preparing food. In fact, its proudest shining moment (pun intended) was when we took of the diffuser and hung it from the center of an ez-up. That lighted up the whole area under the canopy enough for us to play cards without the brightness at eye level blinding everyone.The lantern is only slightly bigger than a 20-ounce Gatorade bottle, no exaggeration. And it runs on 3 batteries as opposed to many of the monster lanterns that use 8 batteries. Though not quite as bright as using D-sized alkaline batteries, it works really well with rechargeable AA batteries (using size adaptor). Even after two nights of the kids playing with the lantern on high, the AA batteries kept on going.It is also pretty rugged. Can't tell you how many times the thing had been dropped but hasn't broken. 4Purchased for storm blackouts I thought I'd received a defective unit, because when pressing the button after it's been On, it doesn't cycle through the brightness modes but just turns off. When I saw that happens with both the 30- and 60-Day models, I realized that the only way to toggle the brightness is at turn-on.This 30-Day (pictured beside a 16-ounce bottle) is mini-size, but plenty luminous! Its lighter weight makes it the better choice for walking around in the dark or sending with a child to camp.(The 60-Day is a "regular" size lantern, but one almost has to be a weightlifter to carry it with the 6 D-cell batteries inserted. Best for situations in which it's kept stationary.)Tip: When inserting the batteries, aim to align the black fitted pieces (more so than focusing on the red arrows). Much easier that way to close the battery compartment. 5Great emergency lantern with superb battery life. This lantern is a great choice for emergencies, camping and home use. We have four - reserve nightlight for the kids' room in case of power-outages, one in the garage 'ready to go', one in the trunk of the car for emergencies and one in the camping box. Battery life is excellent. Across the four lanterns, with sporadic use, we have not had to change the batteries so far on a year of use.The glow-in-the-dark detailing is nice, but it only glows if it was next to a light recently. So of limited use if the lantern is kept in a dark place.I give it 4, rather than 5, stars because the minimal light setting (the 30-day) setting is too bright to be really comfortable as a nightlight, however, if you really do need 30 days of light in an emergency, the level of light is perfectly adequate to undertake most tasks. On its brightest setting it is very bright indeed.It's fairly heavy to carry, but the curved handle means it packs down reasonably small.We have dropped a couple of them onto concrete without them breaking, so this is a robust product. We're very pleased with ours, and just ordered another. 4Great Product Made better. Love the lantern. My wife and I camp in tents and this is the best lantern for the money. I recommend buying a roll of glow-in-the-dark tape (under $5.00 > http://www.amazon.com/Rolls-Glowing-Tape-Craft-Repairs/dp/B00TOUNP5E/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1442303664&sr=8-2&keywords=glow+in+the+dark+tape), and wrapping lantern and flashlights. Cut out the area where the ON/OFF button is located so you can spot easily it in the dark. Tape glows more than Glow in the dark plastic. 5Awesome Latern If you are looking for a bright battery sipping latnern and are comparing to the Coleman Dual LED Latern (herein CDL) to the Ultimate Survival Technolgies 30-Day Lantern, (herein UST), I really recommend the UST. They are both in the low $30 to mid $30 so the price is not the real difference. The only advantage that the CDL has over the UST is the continuous variable brighness control. If you consider that the CDL is 390 lumens to the UST's 300, you are talking about 33% brighter in favor of the CDL, which is at the in the just enough for the human to notice. Now consider this, which I find to be the biggest advantage of the UST, it only requires 3 "D" batteries to deliver on the 30-Day claim. The CDL requires 8 "D" batteries. So if over the use of the lantern (unless seldom used (I use our laterns about twice a month since I am a leader in two Boy Scout Troops so I go camping about twice a month), it would acutally be cheaper to buy two UTSes when taking into account the cost of the batteries (unless you get rechargeables) where I can use 6 batteries in two lanterns (UST) vs. 8 batteries in one lantern (CDL) . Another feature of the Black/Glo vs. the colored ones, this glows in the dark (ok, not foreever) and doesn't have the flahing LED locator element, so no extra drain on the batteries. If you really want super bright there is a 508 lumen UTS 60-Day latern, but it will set you back around $70 and it takes 6 "D" batteries. I still think two UTS 30-day is a better value. Another thing about the UTS (the 30-day) is it is compact and except for the weight of the batteries (but still lighter than the 6 and 8 cell lanterns) it is easy to get into your pack. And since they are weatherproof (not waterproof), you could hang it on your pack. The UST also feels a bit more rugged.One downside to both lanterns is the lack of included reflector. This is a problem if you want to hold either of them up to get a "lay of the land" at night as part of it shines in your eyes. 5Ultimate Survival 30-day Lantern VS. Streamlight "The Siege" Compact Lantern 44931 After a recent power outage I purchased both the Streamlight "Siege" and the Ultimate Survival 30 day lantern.Both of these units rated higher in reviews I found than the Ray-O-Vac and others.STREAMLIGHT SIEGE (model #44931) Compact Lanternhttps://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DII7CTI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1* THE GOOD: Very well made. Metal Carabiner clips instead of plastic. 2 meter (aprox 6.5 ft) Impact resistance.Pleasing light.* VERY * EASY TO REPLACE THE BATTERIESHas red light to preserve night vision (kind of a gimmick for some but you don't have to use it if not interested)$3 - 4 dollars cheaper (as of 11/01/2014) than the Ultimate.* THE BAD: Maxiumum runtime on low is 12 days.________________________________ VS. _____________________________________ULTIMATE SURVIVAL TECHNOLOGIES 30 day lanternhttps://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DUPV60K/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1* THE GOOD: It purports to run * 30 * days on the Low setting. I have not tested this.The quality of light output is very very close to the Streamlight Siege. Color options: They make a bright orange colored case version of this Ultimate lantern which seems to cost $8.00 more. It might be more conspicuous / findable in that mess of stuff in the basement : ) in a hurry. Just mentioning it for those who care.* THE BAD: BATTERY CHANGING CAN BE MAJORLY AGGRAVATING - even in good light!I have two of these Ultimate units. On one of my two Ultimate units I had to fuss and fuss and realign and it wouldn't latch or work right. I kept looking at the markers provided, etc. On the 4th try (removing / replacing / checking batteries and line-up) it finally latched and worked. IN AN EMERGENCY THIS COULD CAUSE MAJOR STRESS. Suggestion: Keep the batteries in it, ready to go. Check them once a month if you want to make sure they are viable / no leaks.The hanging clip on the bottom is plastic, not a carabiner and is obviously less durable than the Streamlight.By the way, I've experienced more (occasional) leaks over the years from the major name "D" brand than the major name "E" brand of batteries.____________________________________________________________________THE VERDICT:OVERALL DESIGN, DURABILITY & EASE OF USE: Streamlight is the winner.QUALITY / QUANTITY OF LIGHT THROWN: Slight edge to the Streamlight.SHEER LONGEVITY OF LIGHT OUTPUT (TRUMP CARD?): Ultimate is the winner (by paper specs, we'll see).________________________________________________________________________________FOOD FOR THOUGHT:The brightest setting on both lanterns is substantial. Clearly lights up a 12 X 12 room.The middle settings on both lanterns is "not bad" you could still read by it if sitting close to the light and not lose your eyesight.The very bottom ("Low") setting on both lanterns is fairly dim. It's survival. "Just enough" to make out your surroundings. If you want it running in a room you don't frequent that often during an outage - fine. It'll probably keep you from tripping over something. Some say they can read by this Low setting. I wouldn't want to read for pleasure using the low level of light output. Yes light will reflect off a map, or instructions and you can read them on Low. You'll want the lantern close by. YMMV.Regarding the claimed 30 day output on Low with the Ultimate: has anyone who's purchased this unit done a real life test on that? That's the thing with specs and claims. Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics. I'm going to ASSUME that the 30 day claim is true.TIP: I have found the Dial D-Cell Storage Box by Walter Drake to be useful for holding backup batteries.http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003USCDNG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1For now, the way I solve the choice dilemma is to own both units. As far as physical size, the volume and weight of both units is very close. The Streamlight is lightly more "svelte" and has slightly more "throw" on High.SUBJECTIVE USABILITY CONCLUSION: The Streamlight is more "fun" somehow.You probably couldn't go wrong with either of these. 4UST 30-Day Lantern I just recently received the Ultimate Survival Technologies 30-Day Lantern so I haven't been able to give it any long-term tests or usage but I like what I see so far. I bought some relatives the popular Ray-O-Vac Sportsman Lantern (SE3DLN) for Christmas because it had good reviews and frankly costs less. I decided to try the UST brand because of the potential 30-day length of use. I like the solid build, it doesn't seem cheap. It is impact & weather resistant. This unit seems to be built better than the Sportsman model. It weighs a little more than the Sportsman perhaps by less than half a pound (weighs 1.9 lbs with batteries). It is also close to a couple inches taller. For those not familiar with these it is similar to the size of a 20 oz bottle of Gatorade or soda but just a little wider. Very simple to use and batteries are a cinch to put in. Like the Sportsman, it has a green flashing finder light that blinks every 5 seconds when turned off. This is not a bright or bothersome flash but is meant to help locate in the dark. I also like how this lantern has 3 brightness modes instead of 2 with high, medium and low plus a 4th SOS flashing mode. It is also brighter than most comparable lanterns in high mode at 300 lumens. The three D batteries are expected to last up to 30 days in low mode (29 lumens), 3.5 days in medium (150 lumens) and 32 hours in high. This lantern lights up a room very nicely. Even in medium at 150 lumens it is quite bright. Low mode could often be sufficient during an extended power outage but it's fainter more like a real strong night light. This lantern has a nice handle on top for hanging and can also be used upside down as a downlight. You can spend more or less depending on what you're looking for but this is a choice I would highly recommend. I plan to purchase more for that unexpected emergency.*UPDATE 6/8/13: After experiencing a power outage, I was surprised at the amount of brightness there is in low mode. Depending on your activity, you will probably find this setting adequate much of the time. Of course, this is the mode that advertises lasting 30 days. Very happy with our purchase so I bought an identical orange colored lantern that was priced less than the silver. 5Tested and Approved! Read and believe the other reviews about the quality and versatility of this product. I'm just here to say that the first thing I did, just for fun, was to test the "30 day" claim. With a fresh set of batteries, and even turning it up to medium or high from time to time in order to demonstrate to friends, this thing ran continuously for 33 days. It is the real deal! 5A good value It performs as advertised and seems well constructed although some parts aren't as tough and functional as I would expect (hook on the bottom for example is weak plastic and is open, no catch to close around the line/limb/etc.). I also bought the Streamlight 44931 at the same time. I paid $8.00 more for the Streamlight and it's worth it, although it was heavily discounted from its full retail price of $61. A few items to compare:UST wins for long life at low setting (30 days vs. 12) but that's where it ends.Streamlight is IPX7 certified (waterproof down to 1 meter, and impact resistant from 2 meters). UST is only IPX5 (splashproof and impact resistant from 1 meter)Streamlight has a red light setting to preserve your night visionBottom line the UST 30 day lantern is a good value at $30. Comparing it at full retail price $38 vs. $61 for the Streamlight I'd have to go with the UST for value. When the prices get closer (as they were when I purchased) the value would shift the other way. If you don't intend rough service or lake/river/ocean use I'd say UST for sure. As an emergency light that sits in your closet until the power goes out? UST 4Ultimate Survival tech lantern for home use, the stream- light for all outdoor use. purchased this for my wife to have on her night stand incase she has to get up in the middle of the night. No more fumbling for the lamp switch or having to get up in the dark to turn on the bedroom light. jut reach over and push the button and instant light. these put out alot of light. This is not some cheap little IED bulb with little or no light, quite the opposite. this lantern has three settings, high,medium and low. It operates on D-cell batterys and on low , will continually run for 30 days. I reviewed many lanterns in this category and these ran the longest.For all of my outdoor lighting needs I purchased the Streamlight Siege Lantern. A D-cell version and a AA a back-pack version.. Id say these lanterns are just about bullet proof , 5 light modes, high 370 lumens for 30 hrs, medium 175 lumens for 70 hrs, low 33 lumens for 295 hrs, red night light 10 lumens for 235 hrs, and a flashing SOS 10 lumans for 435 hrs. Lantern floats, has a battery light indicator green battery full, amber half and flashing red low. 6 meter drop capacity, two spring loaded hooks top and botom for hanging lantern and a movible handle that fits over a limb to hang lantern from. Hands down this is one of the best for your outdoor needs other than a gas lantern. this lantern is about 7" high and about 4" at the base. The defusser can be easly removed if more light needed. This should be your # 1 pick and is packable. 5

UST is only IPX5 (splashproof and impact resistant from 1 meter)Streamlight has a red light setting to preserve your night visionBottom line the UST 30 day lantern is a good value at $30. Comparing it at full retail price $38 vs. $61 for the Streamlight I'd have to go with the UST for value. When the prices get closer (as they were when I purchased) the value would shift the other way. If you don't intend rough service or lake/river/ocean use I'd say UST for sure. As an emergency light that sits in your closet until the power goes out? UST 4Ultimate Survival tech lantern for home use, the stream- light for all outdoor use. purchased this for my wife to have on her night stand incase she has to get up in the middle of the night. No more fumbling for the lamp switch or having to get up in the dark to turn on the bedroom light. jut reach over and push the button and instant light. these put out alot of light. This is not some cheap little IED bulb with little or no light, quite the opposite. this lantern has three settings, high,medium and low. It operates on D-cell batterys and on low , will continually run for 30 days. I reviewed many lanterns in this category and these ran the longest.For all of my outdoor lighting needs I purchased the Streamlight Siege Lantern. A D-cell version and a AA a back-pack version.. Id say these lanterns are just about bullet proof , 5 light modes, high 370 lumens for 30 hrs, medium 175 lumens for 70 hrs, low 33 lumens for 295 hrs, red night light 10 lumens for 235 hrs, and a flashing SOS 10 lumans for 435 hrs. Lantern floats, has a battery light indicator green battery full, amber half and flashing red low. 6 meter drop capacity, two spring loaded hooks top and botom for hanging lantern and a movible handle that fits over a limb to hang lantern from. Hands down this is one of the best for your outdoor needs other than a gas lantern. this lantern is about 7" high and about 4" at the base. The defusser can be easly removed if more light needed. This should be your # 1 pick and is packable. 5
