Whenever you need a battery powered light source, whether it’s for your upcoming camping trip, or when the power goes out, the Nova Max 300 LED Lantern will have you covered.

It provides you with 3 modes to choose from – high for bright light, low for longer battery life, and flashing for an emergency. This lantern has 300 lumens of maximum output power thanks to the 3 x ultra bright 1 watt white Nichia LEDs. This unit runs on 3 x 1.5V D cell batteries which are available separately and has a slow flash green LED indicator which will help you locate your lantern in the darkness.

For area lighting, you can just remove the top lens, and the built-in hanger hook on the base allows you to hang it up wherever you need illumination. Whether you’re lighting up an outdoor eating area, tent or house in a blackout – the Nova Max 300 Lantern is a solid choice.

Camping or multi purpose lamp.

It’s a great lamp, small but right and easy to carry with you.

Easy for the kids

Super easy to use and is the perfect addition for our camping trips. A little too heavy to hang inside the tent, but ideal on a low limb or on the ground.

Works great, But I want an option to disable the emergency beacon to find it, So I can store it for long periods ready to go as blackout redundancy lighting.

Excellent light - love it

I have now bought about 10 of these lights for our Scout Group and I also have a couple in my personal camping kit. Bright and sturdy an all round great light that can stand a few knocks. On past camping trips the batteries have last for a week in my dining fly. Nothing better

Great little light

Bought this light on the back of the reviews. So far so good, I have run it for maybe 6 hours total and very happy with it. Like other reviews, it could be a bit brighter, but it is only a small lantern .

Happy purchase

I bought this item and the Enduro 300. I'd been using the two in a peer comparison test and this lantern was more expensive and it's flashing location light was dimmer and less frequently than the Enduro 300; this is not so great if you're in the dark waiting for a flash to find the lantern. Though the Enduro 300 seemed to be just that bit better I would probably buy this item again though it is much more expensive. 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.

Great unit

A great unit with lots of light output. Snowys service was fantastic and the product was shipped straight away and arrived in 3 days. Very happy

Compact and solid

Good quality little light. We did feel like it could be a touch brighter - perfect for use in the tent but not quite bright enough to light the campsite alone. Good addition to the camping setup.

How differ from blue Primus Nova Max 300 you sold 2 years ago?1 answer

2 years ago you sold me a blue, very similar-looking 300 lumen Primus lantern. A competitor currently lists the older blue one, with the same model number as your red one. The handle in your picture is a slightly different shape to my older blue one, and the Primus logo has changed (was blue oval in silver rectangle). Do you know if there are any other differences?

- Attadale, WA(5 months ago)

G'day Lisa,

Other than a few minor aesthetic differences there isn't a whole heap different between the old and the new model of the Primus Nova Max 300 LED Lantern, the light itself is the same.

Does the emergency flashing green light drain the battery 1 answer

Does the emergency flashing green light drain the batterys

- Adelaide (1 year ago)

G'day Dudley,

The green LED indicator does consume a very small amount of power from the battery and naturally, there is a drain but it's a very prolonged drain which is probably only noticeable over a period of months/years.

How many lumens do I need?1 answer

Just wanting to know how many lumens I would want to light up the inside of a tent and at a stretch a table outside?

- Melbourne(1 year ago)

G'day Donnelle, 

It's a little hard to give you a straight answer, as there is no hard or fast rule when it comes to recommending lumens.

We'd say that a 300-lumen lantern should be bright enough for inside a tent, or to use outside for lighting up a table. But you would probably need a lantern for both inside your tent and outside to light up each area properly Donnelle.
