Show Description

This compact LED lantern emits red or white light that can be dimmed to aid the effect of ghost stories or brightened to make sure that card game is played fairly. Use it with the globe on for pleasant ambient light around the campsite, or remove the globe for direct light to see close-up tasks.

  • Dimmable red and white LEDs.
  • Simple swipe operation lets you set the right amount of white, or red, light.
  • Removable globe for more direct lighting.
  • IPX4 waterproofing means the light keeps shining even when Mother Nature has other ideas.
  • Collapsible legs and globe both feature hanging points for multiple placement options.
  • Folding legs also allow you to aim the light.
  • Compact 12cm height is easy to fit almost anywhere.
