15 LED Dynamo Pack-Away Lantern

15 LED Dynamo Pack-Away Lantern

This convenient light source is able to provide 360 degree illumination through dual mode lighting: 9-LED or 15-LED. The lantern features three distinct ways to power up. It has a wind-up generator with a 3-phase alternator motor, an included 12V AC/DC vehicle cigarette lighter socket adaptor or works with a 12V AC/DC wall socket adaptor (not included). It is perfect for emergencies and power outages as well as while camping, fishing and hunting. When the lights go out in an emergency, there is often a need for a light source that covers an area larger than what a traditional flashlight can handle. In the past there were two options for lighting a room, the first being multiple candles placed around the room, the second a kerosene lantern. While both produce large amounts of light, they come with the danger of open flames. Now there is a new option in emergency lighting — the LED Crank Lantern. To access the 360 degree light, pull up on the top of the lantern while pressing the two buttons located on opposite sides. When fully extended the lantern will lock into place. When turned on, the lantern boasts two lighting options: at low power nine LEDs conserve power, and at high-power 15 LEDs provide maximum brightness. The lantern's hand crank is tucked away neatly in the lantern's lid when not in use. When the crank is needed, it flips up and turns easily (in either direction) to generate continuous light after a few minutes of turning (see conversion table below). In addition to being a fabulous light source, this lantern has a built-in, extra-loud emergency siren that can be used to let people know where you are. The lantern can also charge many cell phones with the furnished adaptors.
