Multiple Light Sources, with simple Rotary dial control
Camping lanterns typically have a single light source, sometimes a Red. This time Fenix has stepped up their game and provided multiple angle of light, all controlled via a simple and quick to use rotary dial on the front of the lantern.
The Kelvin range is from 4000K-6800K, and with 9 modes overall you have a very broad range of light output to pick from.
Main White LED light ranges in 3 levels from 500, 200, and 50 lumens. The Front light is fixed at 25 lumens (useful for reading or working on an item in front of the lantern), and 3 levels for the downward light, 150, 50, and 5 lumens. 2 Red modes are rated to 3 lumens with a static and flashing option.
Much more versatile than most lanterns, this model from Fenix is going to be popular with users who want a powerful, yet compact model with a long run time and built in power bank.
