    Default UCO flip

    Has anybody tried the UCO flip lantern? Their website states it uses 4 AA batteries and will output 185 lumens with a 25 hour runtime.

    I am not sure how long it has been out.

    They are marketed in the UK as Silverpoint Hercules Lanterns.
    I did buy one of these but it went missing during a Postal Strike over here so I had my ££ refunded.
    There are a couple of reviews of it here :- http://www.amazon.co.uk/Silverpoint-...9&sr=8-1-spell

    Which although not indepth they do rate it.
    I am not sure how long it has been available for exactly but I think it is at least a year or two in the UK.

    I've seen that smaller UCO Compact Lantern and Torch for sale at www.CountyComm.com. Looks interesting. Don't know about the Flip model, but I'd bet it's way overrated.

    I have seen the UK version (Silverpoint Hercules) on and it was way brighter than the cree Alpkit Bulb (UK River Rock) 136 lumen lantern I have.
    It may be overrated but aren't most things?
