The AYL StarLight 300 LED Lantern is pretty cool and worked great when we had our recent power outage. Plus I know it will work great when we go camping in the spring. I love that the light is super bright, far better then my other flashlights, and out did their performance, plus we had the light on for at least 28 hours straight and it did not dim, or die, and continued to stay very bright. I also love that I can hang this light if I wanted to and it last for hours! So whether we are camping or waiting out the storm, I know my family can be safe & no longer scared of the dark. This lantern device does take 3D batteries which are not included.
