Even if you fancy yourself as having night vision to rival the Terminator, you’ll still need a lantern to give you some illumination at night when you’re off the grid. That’s where the Enduro 300 from Zempire comes in, this lantern has an ultra-efficient LED bulb that reduces drain on batteries and more importantly - won’t need to be replaced.
You’ve got a high mode which is perfect for larger tents, and medium which will brighten up a smaller dome tent. In an emergency, you can turn on the emergency flash mode to alert those passing by, or if you just feel like a campground boogie is in order. The hook at the base of the lantern lets you hang it up in the centre of your tent, or you can rest it on your camp table with the diffuser on for a softer effect at mealtimes.
The rubberised base will absorb shocks, so it’ll hold up through any night-time blunders or mishaps. Keep your Zempire Enduro Lumen 300 in the back of your car for emergencies, in the spare cupboard for blackouts, or with the rest of your camp kit for your next trip.
The main reason I got this lantern was because of how long it lasts between battery changes, and I've not been disappointed. When we're not camping my daughter uses it in her room at night on the low setting and its lasted over a month so far and still going. The low setting is very bright and the casing is sturdy so I'm not worried about the kids using it. Extremely good value.
A sturdy, bright little lantern. A great purchase for $30.
Best battery operated Lantern so far... Works in 3 different modes ... Couldn't ask for more... Delivery from Snowy is too quick and happy with the purchase.
I bought this item and the Primus Nova Max 300. I'd been using the two in a peer comparison test and this lantern was cheaper and it's flashing location light was brighter and flashed more frequently than did the Primus and this is great if you're in the dark waiting for a flash to find the lantern. Though I've always preferred Primus products over others I would probably buy this item again over the Primus given they're almost the same lantern but the price difference is amazing and I like that in the dark flash. I've been using it for a couple hours every night to read by in bed and though I have to have it very close for good reading light it works well enough and there's no sign of the batteries running down after two weeks of such operation. Snowy's delivery seems to be the stuff legends are made and soon they may start to sing songs about it around camp fires at night.
That's a great review thanks Eddie, love that you did your own comparo between the two lanterns. We'll be pretty stoked if we hear campfire songs about Snowys next time we're in a crowded campsite. ~ Ben.
Is there a usb plug? Or do you need to change batteries?
The Zempire Enduro 300 Lantern isn't rechargeable, unfortunately. You'd need to use 3 x D Cell batteries to power it.
Just wondering about the tern diffuser ..does that mean that the lens cover is removable like the primus range ...cheers 😎
I've just given this a quick crack and good news, the diffuser lens cover does come off to expose the globe if you want to have the light exposed.
at 185 height, this won't even fit in the 4wd !
You're too right, that would be one gigantic lantern! Thanks for letting us know, we had those dimensions in millimetres instead of centimetres - so I've fixed those up to reflect the correct size.
Why is this light priced so high? The RRP is only $25....
I'm not sure where you have read $25. I've just double checked our website and currently the RRP is $40.00 with our Everyday Low Price being $29.90.
Given Snowys Customer Service and buying from an Australian retailer for my ind teh extra $5 is well spent even if it was listed somewhere for $25. Snowys does not rip you off and has a great reputation plus IM their pricing beats the market everytime.
Is this lantern identical to the Nova Max 300? I bought the Primus lantern (Nova Max 300) from you recently for $36 - since then the price has jumped somewhat! It is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC...Just wondering if this unit is just as good at half the price?
I'm so glad to hear that you're really happy with the quality of your Primus lantern, we've been selling that range in store for quite some time as they're such a great product. Zempire is a fairly new range to us, but so far we have received excellent feedback regarding the quality of their products.
We always aim to give our customers the best price possible, but I've just confirmed with our purchasing manager that the buy price on this item has increased so that's why there is a difference from when you purchased this lantern.
The Enduro 300 and the Nova Max 300 are very similar in size and features, but the main one is that the Nova has three LEDs while the Enduro has one. The Zempire will give you more run time at 72 hours on high, vs 36 hours for the Primus.
I would say though, that the Primus may perform slightly better as it has three LEDs as opposed to one.
