    Pros:   Easy to use, no fire danger, fairly durable materials
    Cons:   Bulb connections are loose, doesn't like to be tossed about.

    Summary:   This is a battery powered fluorescent lantern made by G.E. It is easy to use and fairly light for a lantern. Sadly the light output is also small.Main featuresThere really are no features to speak of. The button is on/off ... read more

    Pros: Sufficient white light, easy to turn on.
    Cons: Installing batteries is not easy, and fingerprints show on stainless steel base.

    Summary: This GE lantern was given to me by a friend after I had mentioned that power outages seem to be commonplace where I live. I keep it in the bathroom because it gives off enough light to get ready by if necessary early in the morning when it is still very ... read more

  • GE 4-D Fluorescent Lantern: Handy and a Good Value

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A good value at $15. Gives even light and it's safe to use.
    Cons: Must replace batteries every few nights.

    Summary: This a portable lantern that uses 4 D batteries for power. It stands about a foot high with a round base of perhaps five inch diameter. We use it when camping. My wife picked it up for about $16 last year. The low price makes it a good value. Even ... read more

    Pros: Reasonable price, decent light output
    Cons: Battery life much lower than advertised

    Summary: In the wake of the August 2003 blackout, I became interested in lanterns. I think that they should also be of interest to people in hurricane-prone areas, especially with this very active season we're experiencing. In the '03 blackout, we had plenty ... read more

    Pros: The GE Latern is nice.  The service from City Lights (John) was tremendous.
    Cons: The box it came in indicates that the bulb can be replaced.

    Summary: This past October I purchased a GE Lantern at Costco.  I liked it after using it in the yard at the grill.  In November 2010, I went back and bought several more of the lanterns to have in case of power outages etc.  They were just ... read more

    Pros: Excellent for black outs and camping

  • Bright and convenient lantern for as long as it lasts

    Rated Show
    Pros: Bright, safe, convenient.
    Cons: The actual life of the light tube is far less than what GE claimed.

    Summary: I bought this lantern two years ago. It was used infrequently. We took it during camping trips which was about once or twice a year. It also saw several hours of indoor use. The tube went dead last week - in the middle of our last camping trip. I think ... read more
