Fenix CL30R Camping Lantern
For Ultimate Campsite Light Illuminator!
Brilliantly bright and remarkably versatile, the Fenix CL30R Camping Lantern is the perfect light source for any campsite, small or large. Powered by a trio of 18650 batteries (included), this impressive lantern provides 650 Lumens of 360° illumination that can reach up to 35 meters away - more than enough distance to blanket any campsite with sufficient light. In addition to its brightest output, the CL30R also features four dimmer brightness settings ranging from 350 Lumens down to 10 Lumens to better fit the needs of your campsite, as well as a special Flashing Mode for signaling. While it is recommended to use all three 18650 batteries, this flexible lantern is able to run on just 2 or even a single 18650 battery when you're in a pinch and don't have access to all 3.
Multi-functional and user-friendly, the CL30R is intelligently designed for you to get the most out of it as a camping utility. The CL30R is operated using a single easy-to-use pushbutton switch located on the body and features a universal tripod socket on its bottom as well as a handy hanging loop on its lid to add a number of hands-free lighting options to better fit the needs of your campsite. The light is also internally rechargeable via its Micro-USB port so its easy to prepare for your next trip, and features a 4-LED power indicator on its lid so you can monitor how much charge you have left for the trip. Being a light source isn't the lantern's only function, as it also doubles as a portable power bank, complete with a USB output for you to charge your devices when you need them most. Overall, the Fenix CL30R Camping Lantern is a highly capable camping light and utility perfect for any outdoor enthusiast!

The lantern is well built, solid and fairly heavy...with or without batteries. The switch is easy enough to use, one button is a no-brainer. Though it may not be the most efficient. I really love the setup of the LED's, vertical alignment with the light radiating from 360 degrees around. The diffuser, or frosted globe if you will, prevents the lantern from becoming too bright...thought at its brightest it's still slightly blinding for a moment. The lantern has a hanging clip that's metal, attached to the top. This might come in handy some day. Plastic is used for the majority of the lantern, with the battery compartment screw-down cover being metal.
The light output is really bright on high, plenty to use in place of a regular fuel type lantern. The other four settings are pretty standard, but a slightly decreased low setting would be a nice addition. I think it's currently 10 lumens. I have a CL25R also, and this will provide the low setting I need sometimes. If I haven't mentioned how bright this thing is on high, let me say it again...it's really bright! The highest setting may actually be a little too bright for most applications, so the next to highest setting is also really bright and will likely get the most use by me. It will also save some battery juice.
I like having the built in charging function, just plug in the USB cable and let it charge. The charge times are not quick if you use a regular 5 volt outlet, so I always recharge using my Fenix charger.
I will be using this extensively later this summer on fishing trips in the Cascades. It will be a great addition knowing I won't have to bring the big, bulky Coleman. The Coleman has been a workhorse though, and I don't have much negative to say about it. It does whistle pretty loudly though, if the wind is right and the lantern is on high. The Fenix will be a much better setup for me, and the size is amazingly compact.
I highly recommend the Fenix CL30R, and the Battery Junction is a great place to purchase it.
