Very cool lantern!
Awesome lantern, perfect size, and great output.
I put in a full charged battery but the lantern blinks red and goes to the lowest setting constantly. Ive tried multiple batteries (Fenix rechargeable 18650's), all the batteries work in other lights but not in the lantern. So basically this light is useless.
Love this CL25R so much, I'm going to buy another one & retire (or not use much) my old Coleman Northstar propane lanterns for car camping. Tired of replacing expensive broken mantles & buying expensive propane bottles. Started out looking for an upgrade to my Black Diamond Orbit lantern for backpacking and everyday use that was brighter, compact, with longlasting power. Standardizing my lights around 18650 rechargeables and so the CL25R caught my attention. This lantern is incredibly bright for its size, great for group camping. I love that it has a red light (to keep the bugs uninterested), is directly rechargeable thru microUSB (leave battery in), has a tripod & magnet mount in addition to the hanging ring....I use them all. Great performance, great features, great value and the first LED lantern that has convinced me to switch from propane lanterns.
Asked for this lantern for Father's Day from my kids. This is my second Fenix light and I'm equally impressed with it as well. Took it camping on a large family outing. When the power to the campground went out, I used the lantern hung from a tree to light up the dining area for the crowd of 27. Everyone was impressed with the size and power of this light. It was used every evening for 4 days at medium power for at least 4 hours a day, and still hasn't needed to be recharged.
