Would be nice if it went a bit dimmer, as we prefer a lower light level when camping. It's a solidly built lantern, but heavy as there's plenty of lead in the sealed lead acid battery. Battery should be good for 5 years if maintained according to the instructions, and the LED light itself should last approximately forever.
I am very happy with the Primus lantern. Light output is quite bright. The price was great and the staff at Snowys were very helpful. Fast freight too.
I now own 2 of these. Snowys has the best price around, half the price our my local camping store. Postage was super quick, Adelaide to Lismore in 3 business days. I'll be buying all of my gear from snowys from now on.
Works well, first charge takes some time. We had ours on lowest dimmer setting and lasted 3 nights, sturdy/heavy feel. Good light.

It's all good - service, delivery, product. Made my night!
Nice and sturdy; adjustable brightness very good; when battery runs down, light just goes OFF. That's it! No dimming, just off.
Very good light and bright, fantastic service and quick delivery
Well made with a powerful dimmable light. Surprised by the weight, it has a lead acid battery not modern lithium. I recommend it if weight is not an issue.
Great lantern, very bright, used for 3 nights without re-charging.
Excellent lantern which is much safer than using a gas lantern. We first "got caught out" when we lost power during a bad bushfire recently and realized we only had candles. I quickly got on-line and purchased this lantern from Snowy's who gave excellent service - we received the lantern within a couple of days (delivered to our door) and have already used the lantern when we had another power outage this week. The lantern gives excellent light over a good surface area.
I have lantern only.

i havent used my latern in a while. the led is green but when i try to switch on nothing. do the batteries need replacing
As the Nova Max 400 uses a lead acid battery, because you haven't used it in a while the battery is going to need a little boost.
We'd recommend charging it for at least 2-3 days, if not a little longer even if the light says it's fully charged as this should bring your battery back up to full strength.
If after that the battery is still giving you trouble, then give us a buzz on 1300 914 007 and we'll try and find another solution.
I have had mine brand new on a charger for over 20 hours and it still not charged. I bought it Friday. Does that mean there is something wrong with it?
Can I purchase a replace battery or is it cheaper to buy a new lantern?
Hi, would it be possible to know the type of replacement battery I should have just in case?
