well built and compact for er bag, also use one as night light for reading. accidently dropped once and worked fine. light portion completely pushes down into lower compartment easily and like magic. top has handle can hang from link. soft rubber feel to colored components. sufficent light source that wont drain the batteries, mini and lightweight design is perfect.
There is something wrong with the electronics in the switch. Works great for a few weeks, then turns off after about 15 seconds, then not at all. Trust me - I love the lantern, but am on my third one. Thought it was a glitch, but No. 2 just went bad half way through our month in Africa - where you need it most with intermittent power.
