    I bought one of these (albeit red) last year...

    Then my dad wanted one...

    then the scouts wanted ten...

    then....

    then my local Costco ran out!

    Nice. I wonder how it compares in output to the Energizer 4D folding fluoro.
    The Phaser: A nice EDC with great throw; heat and runtime can be issues.

    If it is like the older model, the bulb is not consumer replaceable. They are made in a factory named Lomak in southern China.

    I havent had to yet, and they've had plenty of runtime on the scout camps. One of these hung from the ridge-pole of each of our tents makes our site look really cool. A row of glowing green tents stands out from the crowd on a busy site.

    The only probelm i've had is that they are quite sensitive to knocks, and will tak a few clicks to re-light after you've bashed them. By knocks i am generally referring to bashing my head on them!

    I've seen quite a few different replacement fluorescent bulbs at Walmart in their camping section. You might find one that'll fit.

    My GE Steelbeam is quite different in style from this one. It uses a standard flourescent replacement bulb.

    I LIKE that idea!! I'd like to find one of those...where did you get yours? Easy to replace & acquire inexpensive bulbs is the way to go!

    I got mine at Costco as well. It is a heavy duty looking Red lantern.

    I believe the bulb in the lantern in the first post is a standard bulb as well that one could source at Home Depot or a hardware store. They are standard flourescent fixture bulbs.
