I will try and get a pic of my 60 Day UST lantern I have had it for close to 4 years and have never had to put new batteries in it Really love how bright it is and mainly keep it on my nightstand in case of night time power outs Very happy with that purchase and also bought my father in law the 30 day one at the same time I got mine
I have a couple lanterns I use for camping. We have a variety of light options for power outrages. The lanterns I use ( forget the brand, I'll check later ) can use less batteries than the lantern takes. I can use 6 when the lantern uses 10. Less output but its nice feature. I use diffuser cones on certain flashlight that tail stand so they can perform like a lantern. Being able to use flashlights with cones is really good option to a lantern.
Nate,I want to believe you but as they say Pics or it Never Happened?!
oddly enough I actually have 2 to add to this. apparently it is picture taking time again
Single/Double. I wouldn't put AAs with adapters in place of say 8 C/D cells. One or two, sure. I can get away with my lanterns using less cells it takes. Mine takes 10? I can use 6? I need to confirm tho. I get less output but its a nice feature and being able to use a AA in the event I need to is not bad. This is why I'll only use lanterns for a power outage for a short time. I like my liquid candles best.
I have more AAs than any other cell. The adapter are really nice for that one reason in my case. it would be interesting to see if your lantern will work off less cells.
But the AA has so much less runtime than a C or D cell that I have never really understood this thinking?Are you talking about a single AA in place of a bigger cell or multiples?
The adapters would only be used in power outages as a last resort, as like Aloha, I have many AA but any less C and D cell batteries
