Folding lantern is slim, water resistant

Energizer is upgrading its lighting for patios, camping trips and power outages with a slim, water-resistant LED Folding Lantern.

This device puts out up to 300 lumens and runs for up to 100 hours from a frame that’s about 14 inches tall when open, 5 inches wide and 1.3 inches thick. It weighs about a pound and shrinks to 7.7 inches when folded for storage.

The light panel pivots open for 360-degree visibility and can be positioned at an angle for task lighting. The acrylic light panel is designed with Light Fusion Technology, which is intended to reduce glare, or hot spots, around the LEDs.

Smart Dimming Technology lets you vary brightness to suit your task or to conserve power. It runs on 4 or 8 AA batteries. $29.99. www.energizer.com – Karen Sullivan
