Got this is my email this morning and wanted to share it. Rayovac Sportsman Xtreme 300-Lumen LED Lantern on sale for $18 (40%) TODAY ONLY!! I just ordered TWO of these.
First off Rayovac (even though is sounds like a cheesy company) is an American company (Team America – F-Yeah) founded in 1869! So, you can safely assume that they know a thing or two about batteries and illumination. Oh, and one of their divisions made M1918 Browning Automatic rifles during WWII. So, yeah – they are good-to-go.
Rayovac claims this pumps out 300 lumens… that is serious light! It also boasts 72 hour runtime (full power) or 150 hours (low light). Lanterns will be essential to lighting your house during power down scenarios. Having a solid lantern will be key to keeping your keep bright.
HERE IS RAYOVAC’S DESCRIPTION FROM AMAZON:
With optimized beams, rubber grips, and tactical switches, Rayovac’s SE3DLN Sportsman Xtreme lantern is ideal for use inside and out, whether you’re heading for the hills or camping out in your home during a power outage. Nicely compact and ultra-portable at just 7 inches tall and under 3.5 inches wide, the Rayovac SE3DLN lantern also provides an incredibly bright 300-lumen light that makes it a useful resource for outdoor adventures as well as for emergency preparedness.This Sportsman green-and-black lantern features durable ABS construction and is engineered to be water resistant, making it ideal for use in rugged conditions. The bottom has a convenient hook that can fold out to light up your space–be it a tent, a basement, a garage, or a backyard patio–hands free. The Sportsman Xtreme lantern also features a foldout rubberized handle for easy carrying. An easy-find green LED blinks every five seconds when the lantern is off so you can locate it even on the darkest nights. It’s backed by a lifetime warranty.
The Power of LEDs
A perfect light source for modern lanterns, LEDs are virtually unbreakable, contain no filament or mercury, and never need to be replaced. The LED bulbs use battery power more efficiently than standard bulbs, greatly reducing the number of batteries needed over the life of the lantern. The SE3DLN’s 4-watt LED bulbs are powered by three D batteries (not included) for up to 72 hours of continuous use on high mode and up to 150 hours on energy-saver mode. The Sportsman Xtreme LED lantern also includes a strobe lighting mode.
