Extreme weather is hitting us more and more these days. Whether your area gets tropical storms, tornados, rain storms or blizzards (or all of the above), chances are you get the side effect of power outages occasionally. Having a good portable lantern or two around your home is a must since no one wants to get left in the dark. Amazon shoppers love one lantern in particular: the mega-popular Vont Camping Lantern four-pack. Not only are they an Amazon bestseller, but they're just $28 for a pack of four. That's just $7 for each one.
It's easy to see why it's a bestseller. Each lantern has 30 LED lights to brighten up the area around you. They're so bright, they can easily light up a room or tent. They're perfect for winter storms too, and a must for your emergency kit.
These lanterns are also compact, lightweight and collapsible, allowing you to quickly reduce the size of the light you put out. And, of course, being fully collapsible allows for easy toting and storage. (By the way, when fully collapsed, it's the size of a smartphone!)
The lantern is even waterproof, so it can survive temporarily being in rain and even getting submerged. It's also incredibly durable — it can withstand a 10-foot drop, so no worries about it slipping out of your butter fingers.
This lantern pack has an army of devoted fans who swear it'll light up just about any space. "Uh, this thing is bright. Like crazy super bright. Once you pop the sucker open it's like staring into the sun in the middle of the night. They aren't fooling around when they say this is a bright lantern," one satisfied customer said. "It's really meant to light up the world, not just your campsite. I've had mine for a year-plus and still have yet to change out the batteries. I go camping often during the summer, and this is a terrific lantern I bring along to light up my site. And everyone else's site within 10 miles."
"No matter where you live, everyone needs a reliable light in an emergency, while camping or during a blackout. This is a great solution," a fellow fan said. "It is VERY bright, and can easily light up an entire room. It pulls open for light and pushes close to turn it off. So easy to use, and the body of it is nicely constructed. The metal handles also fold down, and it stores easily in a drawer next to a bed. It is not heavy; a young child would have no problem using it. The LED brightness is very bright, and it does not get hot to the touch. With the set of four, everyone in the house can now have a reliable light to access when needed."
