You know what scented candles are for? Creating a fragrant ambiance. Not for lighting up your house in a power blackout. Make sure you’re not trapped in the dark during an outage, by getting yourself a Vanquish Push 550 Lithium Lantern from Coleman.
Not only is this lantern great to keep in your store cupboard – it’s great to take along on your next camping trip it can be hung up or set on the ground for a reliable source of light at night. This bad boy is rechargeable, which means you’ll never have to buy batteries for your lantern again. To charge this thing up, all you have to do is plug it in using a micro USB cable, and the indicator will tell you when you’re good to go.
The comfort grip top handle is good for taking along on a night ramble or for when there’s a blackout and you need to carry it around with you. With 4 light modes, you’ve got every setting you need including flashing for emergencies.
Pretty good lantern, when it attracts bugs they do all seem to get inside the lantern so you then need to dismantle it to clean it out after a trip. USB charge is handy but charging an iPhone will run it flat real quick.
Hi Snowys, first, thanks for your time to answer me. My question would be quit common. Can I purchase a replace battery ? How much is it? How long can I use the better? How many hours would be a full charge? Can I use my cigarette light power charge it ? Cause I am not traveler. I may use it 3-4 times a year. So what type of lantern will you recommend? (550 Li lanter or Vanquish Push 450 Lantern ?) Which one will be long time using? I look forward to hearing your response. Thanks Gary
The Vanquish Spin 550 Li Lantern has a rechargeable battery so theoretically you won't need to replace it. A replacement battery isn't an off the shelf item, but if you had an issue with that - we could sort it out for you.
This lantern will last you 4 hrs on high, and 80 hrs on low, and it recharges using a 240V power source to charge.
The main differences between the Push 450 and the Spin 550 is that the push has less lumens (450 lumens) and is not rechargeable.
I'd say that one isn't better than the other, it will just come down to whether you would prefer to recharge your lantern, or purchase new batteries when they run out.
How much light does this lantern produce on the 50 lumens setting (50 lumens clearly!) - but is this enough to light up a four person tent and allow the occupants to read at night?
From testing the Vanquish Spin 550 Lantern in store, I’d say that I would personally find the low setting (50 lumens) not bright enough to read in a dark space – but it really is going to depend on what you prefer personally.
On low, you would have to hold your book/tablet quite close to the lantern to see really well, I would say that a higher setting may be better to avoid straining your eyes.
Keep in mind that the average 40 watt lightbulb equals 450 lumens – so if you think about how bright a whole room is with 40 watts, 50 lumens is going to be significantly less than that if that helps.
