These Vont 4 Pack LED Hurricane Lantern collapsible lanterns are perfect for a variety of situations, are very cheap, and come in packs of 2 or 4. The lower price does sacrifice in both battery life and brightness though, as they only last for around 12 hours at 100 lumens; however, that’s still ample time for a couple of nights (assuming you don’t leave them running while you sleep). These lanterns are great to keep in case of emergencies because they can be used to light up multiple rooms or distributed, so everyone has their own.
The LED bulbs collapse into the lantern, saving space and also acting as the on/off switch. If all you need is a light and don’t want to spend too much, the Vont collapsible lanterns are perfect for you.
The lantern’s collapsible body and it’s light weight means that carrying it doesn’t get any easier because it can fit right in your backpack. But just because it’s light doesn’t mean it compromises durability. This lantern is taken care of by it’s military grade plastic.
