    Default Which to keep? Cyclops apollo? Or Favourlight Mini Lantern variant?

    Found these two lanterns at my local Cabela's in the bargain cave at very low prices (9.77ea) plus an extra 15% off, so now the question is, which one would you keep? I already have 2 of the River Rock cool white lanterns, and doing a search on CFP found a beam shot comparison of various lantern here: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...=1#post3085910, a nice review of some lanterns BTW, credit goes to original poster. So, I want to give away one of these to my brother for his birthday:


    or


    The Cyclops Apollo would fit better into his carry-on for his return trip home, but the eGear lantern may get more use.
    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    I'd keep the Favourlight. I am guessing the other one takes AAA cells, which are harder to come by in a pinch, and have much less capacity. Also, the Favourlight mini lanterns are built very, very well for their price point.

    I seen that same eGear (Favourlight) for $39.99 yesterday at a local outdoor equipment store ... as a comparison to the deal you've gotten.
