Recently we had a lot of horrible weather in Texas, that resulted in tornadoes, power outages, lots and lots of rain, and flooding. During that time, we had to make sure that we kept emergency gear close at hand.
We already had several flashlights, but we had been lacking something that would give off more light. Thankfully, this awesome AYL StarLight 330, Ultra Bright LED Camping / Emergency / Outdoor Lantern, showed up...and not a moment too soon!
The AYL StarLight 330 LED Lantern combines the latest LED lighting technology along with an innovative design that results in unsurpassed performance.
300 Lumens blows away the competition and provides the brightest LED lighting in its class
Super high-efficiency LED light generates little to no heat and can be used continuously for up to six days, making it a must have for any type of emergency and safer and longer lasting than any type of emergency candles!
Sturdy rubber and ABS plastic construction for maximum durability and water resistance
Removable top for focused forward lighting or for use as a hanging area light
LED lights are guaranteed for up to 100,000 hours of use and never need replacing
I am so glad that we had this, especially since we have young kids. Having the lights go out, coupled with the sounds of sirens piercing the air, can be scary for a child...even more so for my children, since my son has Autism, and my daughter suffers from anxiety.
Having this lantern nearby, along with a few cuddly blankets, their pillows, mama, and daddy, was enough to keep them content and calm until we regained power, and it was safe to venture outside of the closet.
Aside from emergency use, this is also a great lantern for camping, hiking, and even boating. The handle can be used to carry, or even prop the lantern on its side. It uses 3 D batteries, and is an investment that I think every family should make.
