Two weeks ago, I was sent an AYL StarLight 330 LED Lantern to test out and review. The lantern run on 3 D size batteries and used LED lights, generating 300 lumens. It can be used continuously for up to 6 days and the lights are guaranteed for up to 100,000 hours of use. It’s also water resistant & can be hung up.
I haven’t had a good lantern in a long time & was very eager to try this out. Living in Texas, we get a lot of severe storms and constantly loose power. I wanted something to add to our emergency kit that would be useful, give off a good amount of light, and last a long time.
The lantern itself is very sturdy. The globe is removable so that you can get a brighter light. It has a carry handle on the top, and a fold out hook at the bottom that you can hang it will. The batteries go in at the bottom, and it’s easy to get them in & out. The light switch is a push button and has three settings: normal, bright, and flash.
It’s already come in handy a few times due to the constant storms we’ve been having lately. I’ve also used it in my office at my desk for some extra light while working on some book cover commissions. In all, it’s probably been on for several hours and I haven’t needed to mess with the batteries yet. With other lanterns I’ve used in the past, I’m lucky to get about two hours out of them before the batteries need replacing.
Overall, the AYL StarLight 330 LED Lantern is worth picking up, whether you’re planning on going camping or just want a good emergency light. It lasts a long time and is very bright. The lantern is currently available for $24.99 (+ shipping) on Amazon.
