With three different light temperatures the Primus Frontier Camping Lantern 250 is a light source for every mood and brings both functionality and a feeling of warmth to your campsite.
Equipped with dimmable natural, cool and warm light settings, the Frontier also has a flickering candle mode so you can really step-up the romance on a quiet evening in the outdoors. Ideal inside tents or on table tops with up to 250 lumens of light, the Frontier 250 also has a removable lens and hanging hook for proximity lighting from above.
The convex reflector distributes light evenly and a battery life indicator, rubberized handle and water resistant case make the Primus Frontier 250 Lantern ideal for camping and around the home.
I purchased this as an emergency light for home use, specifically during power outages. As the intended use is intermittent, it was important the power source be reliable, including after years of non-use or recharge. Thus choice of battery came first. Eneloop low self-discharge batteries only come in AA and AAA size which made the Primus Frontier 250 the obvious candidate.
The build looks solid and the light output sufficient for the intended use. Output is fully dimmable for the 3 modes. While easy to switch on and off, the elderly may find mode and brightness selection difficult due to the manual dexterity required.
Being a high-output, single-point, light source, the lamp can be hard on the eyes. This requires the lamp be positioned high, low or inverted as necessary so the light point source can be obscured by the diffuser. While there is a hook in the base to allow inverted hanging, that option is generally not available inside a home. You could stand the lamp upside down on a table but unfortunately the top of the lamp is slightly curved and with all the weight now at the top, there is a risk of it toppling over.
The curved top and issues relating to the elderly aside, I cannot fault this lamp and have no problems recommending it.
Fantastic little light, love the warm white colour option, what would be fantastic though is remembering the last colour setting instead of having to cycle through all the colours every time it is turned on
We bought this lantern as it had a few different light settings and was a great price. When it arrived we went...."oh, it's really small"...but don't let that fool you. This light lasts a long time, had amazing light throw and the candle flicker option was actually pretty cool (kids liked this setting the best). highly recommend this product.
