    Thinking Opinions Please! Dynamo lantern on ebay

    Hi all,
    I saw this on ebay and thought it looked interesting!

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/300714031...84.m1436.l2649

    The seller has suggested that it puts out 500lm which I can't swallow, but I'm guessing it'd do for a campsite.
    What do people think?

    Everything about that lantern suggests that performance will be poor: solar charge option, crank dynamo option, 36 LEDs. Personally, I stay away from lanterns that have even one of these. I expect you can do better as well.

    Hi,
    for me it looks like chinese crap - cheap plastic used, battery cover will brake soon i think, poor car charger (same is supplied with cheap chinese devices, in some cases it can disturb your car radio), main charger - i will be scared to leave it at home plugged in in a wall..
    save these money and buy rayovac for example..
    thats my opinion :-)

    Thanks guys - I'll not be buying this one.

    I've found an after-market Rayovac, which will presumably not win any awards but will hopefully do the job
