Everything you need comes in the box. Most times that is something I value because it means that I don’t have to potentially forget a cord or a battery and place another order.
We cooked some s’mores last night and used the lantern the entire time. While we could have hung it up in a nearby tree I sat it closer to us on a large rock. The photo is a bit deceiving as it doesn’t really give a good representation of how much light this produces and how far it reaches. We did not use the USB to charge anyone’s phone last night but that can be a useful feature especially with teenagers.
The CL30R would be great for anything outdoors or even indoors in the case of a power outage. Get rid of your old fuel powered lanterns and buy one of these. You will not be disappointed.
