Electricity is a crucial part of our day-to-day. Between emergencies, neighborhood power outages, and that one light that never seems to work in your basement, you need a backup light source—you know, just in case. Instead of using flashlights with weak power supplies and short lifespans, why not use an LED-powered lantern to shine a light when you need it most?
Today only, this Odoland LED Portable Lantern is on sale for just $14, or $6 off at Amazon. You have to act fast and shop now, as this sale is slated to expire at the end of the day.
Normally $20, this compact and lightweight lantern is designed with a 360-degree build, a resourceful hook for convenient placement and made for durability and longevity, while it also uses 18 energy-saving and low-powered Ultra Bright LED bulbs that burn longer and brighter than just about any traditional flashlight.
It can hold its light for up to a whopping 37 hours — something the average flashlight just can’t do. In fact, it’s so handy that some Amazon shoppers use the lantern in their roadside assistance kit too.
“This is a lifesaver,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “I bought it for camping but really I keep it in my car year-round. It’s an extraordinary car light, the hook allows you to hang it under your hood if for any reason you need to pull over at night (which I did). The fan is tiny but mighty and a great accessory to a great light. Doesn’t eat up its own battery while not in use which is a blessing.”
Additionally, this Odoland LED camping lantern doubles as a portable ceiling fan that can be adjusted into a small traditional fan too. With up to an impressive 50 hours of run time on low-speed mode, this comes in handy during warm afternoons when you just want to cool down before the evening rolls in.
Another plus: If you want to run both the lantern and fan at the same time, you can still get up to a respectable 16 hours of usage before you have to swap out batteries.
“This is the best camping fan I've found, the high setting is the most powerful I've felt, the light is great looking, there are so many ways to hang it and position it, and I like that it takes D-batteries so I can just swap in new ones if I need,” shares a satisfied shopper. “I got two of these for camping three nights and had them on high all night each night as well as using the light for a couple hours in the evening.”
At 28 percent off, this Odoland LED lantern and portable fan combo is a must for a survival kit, during and after a hurricane or wildfire, random power outage and blackouts, roadside assistance and, of course, camping.
