Product review: Coleman Rechargeable LED Lantern

Coleman LED Rechargeable LanternI've purchased several different rechargeable and dynamo powered LED lanterns. From cheap junk to overly-expensive specialty items. This Coleman hits a sweet spot for price and performance.

Pros:
- Nice and Bright
- 12v rechargable cable (which makes recharging from my Brunton 26W solar panel nice!)
- Light at max intensity actualy lasts a bit longer than the spec says it will. Surprising as this is the FIRST LED lantern that I've owned that actually came anywhere near the spec on the box. VERY PLEASED!

Cons:
- A diffuser might have been a good option (Don't look into the light!)
