The Core 1000 Lumen Cree LED Camping Emergency Lantern is an inexpensive, but high quality, alternative to the classic incandescent type that has served generations of campers well. While the actual brightness of the lantern won’t be enough to provide adequate light for all nighttime camping trips, it will serve as a decent light, and it will also serve the important purpose of signaling for help in the event of a short circuit or short.
That’s why the Core’s maximum capacity is two hundred and fifty lumens, which are also on par with some of the best camping flashlights. Although it’s built for camping, this lamp will still fit into the backpacks of children. Plus, the Core is a compact design that easily fits into a pocket or handbag.
For those with brighter needs, the LED version can also work to light up areas around camp. By providing enough light to see things like walls and doors, and even to spot a trail that you need to follow, it’s perfect for hiking in the evenings after the sun goes down. It can also serve as a moonlight aid if there are no trees to cast more light, or if you’re hiking on foot.
Since the Core is rechargeable, it’s perfect for a great number of purposes. Although the safety features to ensure that it will not cause a fire, it won’t drain its batteries. Instead, the “Batter Watch” feature keeps the battery charged for a few hours after use.
Also, the Core allows you to alter the light output to fit your preferences. Simply choose from four different settings, including high (the highest level), medium, low, and strobe.
Another important item is its user interface. The LED Camping Emergency Light includes a digital readout that displays the remaining battery life, and also lets you configure the light’s level of brightness. The light can be set to a strobe mode that emits a bright, continuous beam. Alternatively, it can be programmed to turn on at dusk and stay on for up to eight hours.
It’s also pocket size and easy to carry, even with your pack. Its handle doesn’t rustle, and the string lights don’t produce any glare.
The Core 1000 Lumen Cree LED Camping Emergency Lantern works great with any emergency lighting system, even if you have an older flashlight. This gives users the option of upgrading their existing lighting system, or buying a new one outright.
You’ll save money by replacing the flashlight replacement with this model. Plus, you can save both time and energy because the high-output illumination provides an additional energy source to run the battery-operated lights. Just be sure to add the extra items to the total cost.
Cree promises that these lanterns will last up to three times longer than incandescent versions. Which means you’ll get your money’s worth. In addition, the Core Cree LED Camping Emergency Lantern comes with a lifetime warranty.
There are two different models available, one in blue and another in red. Both models come with a five-year limited warranty.
A good camping lantern like the Core will allow you to stay safe without consuming too much money, while allowing you to keep in the habit of using lighted tools and lighters. Just remember to use it responsibly, and be mindful of your surroundings.
