    Default This Lantern?

    Hi.

    Does anyone have this piece of light which also works as a power bank?
    How is the light? Brightness in Lumen? Anyone?
    Not a bad deal for 500 bucks, I think.

    I'm sorry I can't really comment on this particular light other than to say that I considered the same type of thing awhile back for my off grid camping trips and I went a different route. I bought these 4 motion sensor solar lights for R230 https://www.takealot.com/cob-solar-p...4/PLID54512447. They're absolutely brilliant 600 lumens is bright enough and because they are activated by motion sensor you only get light when you need it and they give 4 hours of continuous light. Our regime is to place them in the sun in the morning for a recharge and position them where you need them at night. At R60 each they're cheap and cheerful so I consider them to be almost a consumable item. The versatility is fantastic and I simply position them where I need light and I don't worry about trying to locating the on switch in the dark. Of course you don't get the power bank if that's what you need.

    Bit of a hijack

    Can you switch these to continuous light - meaning just on, not needing motion to stay lit?

    You say they lasted 4 hours on a full charge continious?

    Need a couple of these to light up my driveway

    I haven't used them like that but there is a timer adjustment, a bit crude but it should work. Personally I have my doubt's whether they'll last that long in that type of application which is why I see them as a consumable item.

    Ja they tend to drive the LED very hard for maximum light at the expense of duration of the batteries and lifespan of the leds.

    I had Ultratec LED lights for years which also had a built in power bank, back then they were around R500 for a set of 2, and it also came in a nice padded bag with 12V and 230V chargers. You could place them on a table or hang them up in a tent or tree. One got stolen one year at Strab in Mozambique and the other got driven over by a bakkie.

    The next lantern type light I want to buy is the Nitecore LR10, they look awesome.

    I have this one at home. The torch and lantern is decent. The warm white with dimming function is nice as well
