Ok, so I just wanted to start this review by saying, I absolutely LOVE the staff over at Mr. Beams! Their products are absolutely fantastic and they’ve got a loyal customer for life right here! The same can be said about the latest product Mr. Beams has sent me to review, the weatherproof lantern with USB charging! It’s fantastic.

  • Three bright powerful LEDs provide 260 lumens that easily illuminate an entire room Two light modes; Bright and Dim
  • The high-quality LEDs never need to be replaced and will provide 30 hrs of light on one set of batteries Reliable white LED light when you need it
  • USB battery backup charging port allows you to charge a smartphone or mobile device during a power outage, camping, fishing, boating, or outdoors
  • Auto shut-off feature turns this LED lantern off automatically after 60 minutes Powered by 4 D-cell batteries
  • This ultra bright LED Lantern is weatherproof and water-resistant for use indoors and outdoors Ideal for a sportsman.

Weighing only 612 grams, it’s extremely lightweight to carry around to provide a ton of light in situations where you really need it. The added extra of being able to charge your device via USB is a bonus. What I do wish though with Mr. Beams next iteration of the product is if they’d include a little compartment containing universal charging tips for microUSB, 30 pin, and lightning, or if they had three separate cables that actually could be extended out of the lantern that would be awesome. With 4 D batteries, expect about 30 hours of light without charging your device from the batteries and 10-15 hours when charging a device, such as your iPhone 3-4 times.
