Etekcity - Outdoor LED Lantern

Hello guys and gals! I am so happy today because the days are slowly getting warmer and warmer. We just had a cold front go through and I couldn't do anything in the yard, but now is perfect weather for outdoor activities! Yay!

Those of you who know me personally or who follow me on my personal Facebook know that I love camping gear. My family and I aren't "preppers" per se but we do like to be prepared and the more gadgets we can collect, the better we feel about the future. So, when I get to review camping and survival products it puts me over the moon!

Etekcity let me try out one of their Portable Outdoor LED Camping Lanterns and I am so glad they did because this little guy puts out a heck of a lot of light! I was really surprised by just how bright it is! I mean, just look at how much of my front yard this lantern lit up (photo at bottom).

There are 30 individual LEDs which are powered by 3 AA batteries, which they included. So nice of them! Fresh batteries will give you about 72 hours of light before you need to change them. Just unscrew the bottom of the lantern and you're good to go. This is going to come in handy this summer when we spend most nights on the back deck. Now if only it took care of the pesky mosquitoes.

Not only is it a great light source, but it is also collapsible, so it stores easily. As soon as you push it down, the light turns off and doesn't switch back on until you pull it back out, so no worries about eating into your battery time.

The arms swing up to make a convenient handle and then fold down for storage. It is just too cute. Not to mention it is lightweight so hooking it onto your backpack will add almost no weight.
