    Is it made of plastic or aluminum/steel?
    A shopper on May 18, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: They're made of plastic. For the price, they are reasonably sturdy. I managed to break the screw on lid for the battery compartment on one by dropping it about 4-5 feet to a tile floor, but it hit hard, and just the right angle.
    Several have said it lacks an on/off switch. How then is it turned on/off?
    T P on May 31, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It turns on automatically when you pull out the top. Works great!
    Does the lantern have a magnetic base?
    Fred K on Dec 26, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: No, the base is not magnetic; it is made of plastic. However, the lantern is sturdy.

    I did find that a powerful magnet will attach to the base because it is actually attaching to the batteries inside.

    If you want it to be magnetic, you can do a couple of things:

    * If you want a magnet on the bottom of the base. Neodymium flat magnet would do. you get a powerful one it will stick to a magnetic surface.

    * You could attach a flat magnetic metal sheet to the base, inside or outside.
    What is the lifetime of the bulb? Is it replaceable?
    A shopper on Sep 16, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, the lifetime of the bulb is longer than you will probably live. I don't think they quoted a lifespan on the item description, but LED's like these last a very long time. No, I don't think they are replaceable, but they don't need to be. At $4.99 per light, just throw it away and buy another if they stop working. They seem to be well-made though and I would expect them to have a long life.

    WOW light output for the price
    As with a lot of MP purchases, I was on the site ordering something else (TV wall bracket) and veered off to another area. I checked out the 'outdoor' section and saw this little lantern. The $6 price tag caught my eye. The lumen output for the price/size was intriguing. I have not been let down by MP yet, so I gave it a shot.

    This lantern is crazy bright. You will not expect the light output when you first open it.
    It is a small package (collapsed about the height of a soda can, but larger in diameter).
    The screw-on bottom battery cover is actually a really good idea.
    An on/off switch would be nice, but being able to protect the light opening while not in use and closed is probably the better choice.

    Our use with this will be for camping. It will replace a Coleman LED lantern that works perfectly fine, but only puts out about 300 lumens at the expense of about $15 in D size batteries, and 3x the size.

    My next MP order will include a few more of these to keep in each of the vehicles and in the house.

    Best Mini Lantern I have see so far!
    I have a about 4 - 5 different mini-lanterns powered by AA batteries.

    This is the best I have found.

    * Battery cover is screw-on, so I won't have the typical problem of the battery door clip breaking.

    * Only uses 3 AA batteries

    * EXTREMELY BRIGHT. Wow, very bright. I gave one to my cousin as she has no light in her 10 X 10 shed. Completely lights for what she needs. Lights up my 15x20 garage.

    * Sturdy Construction

    * simple to use

    * you can adjust the light by opening less then fully open

    Just a couple of things that could be improved:

    * Even though you can adjust the light by not opening fully, this still uses full power. Would be nice if it had different modes to reduce the light (as it is considerable). This would save power.

    * Personally, I would like an on/off switch

    At this price, it is a no brainer, if you are looking for a mini-lantern. I bought a few to give away and a few for emergency power outages.

    Like it
    plenty of light, plenty of life from 3 AA batteries. The unit turns off when you collapse the lantern to its closed position.
    I recommend this product.

    Super impressive little lantern
    This little lantern is super bright and durable considering the cost! The lack of an off/on switch is no biggie, turns on when opened and off when closed. Simple, inexpensive and quality built product. Pure outdoor products continue to impress me. If you are into camping, backpacking or just need a good bright light for power outages, this is the lantern for you!!!

    A great product
    The lantern arrived well packaged it was much smaller than other LED lantern which I own.. I placed 3 new batteries into the base then grabbed the handles and pulled up on the lantern to turn it on. WOW! I was surprised at the amount of light it gave out especially for its small size. I have already used it to put up some Christmas lights in the dark. This is an outstanding product!!

    Very bright, good batteries last a long time
    Bought this for my daughter who is terrified of the dark (6 year olds!) and we put 3 name brand batteries in it, and it's been left on twice during the day, giving it probably close to 20 hours so far, and it's still working just like the batteries were new. The handles are a bit flimsy feeling, but durable for the price point. The battery cover unscrews from the bottom, and it works fantastically. I'm planning on sending this with my daughter to a 6 day horse camp with 2 extra sets of batteries, but I'm doubtful she'll even need them.

    Provide nice amount of light
    Great product. small, compact and provides nice amount of light. I use these working at events outside at night where I hang the lights from the canopy to provide a nice amount of light. Would recommend these to others.
