Aldi 12 LED lantern £2.99 (25 June but lots left at my local)

18
Found 2nd Jul 2015
12 LED lantern, variable power and impressively bright at maximum, also has small compass in top.

Batteries included (3x Alkaline AA) - also runs ok on NiMH
* isolating tab in place to prevent batteries being wasted by fiddlers.

PS. control is a little erratic, not much between dim and max
Sorry, link is to catalog, only reference I can find for the product - Aldi now hide old deals

Was thinking of grabbing one of these does it do very dim and how bright does it go?

These aren't bad,get the batteries too so worth it for £2.99

Funny how they have to make it look like an old lantern yet LEDs means it could be any shape you like.

Pretty dim at minimum (like a nightlight), increases a bit and then jumps to max (about arms length would be comfortable for reading)

Saw these the other day and was tempted to buy a couple but there's no mention of how long they last or the lumen output at max.

Bought one for the kids going camping. Surprisingly bright for a cheap lantern. Variable down to just a glow. Gets 10 hours on Duracell 2400mAH NiMH rechargeable batteries - on full light. Lights a room easily if you had a power failure. Well worth it.

You should leave a review on the Aldi website. It's info like that the public needs. Thanks for sharing your experience.

These are fantastic, had one for a couple of years and my daughter (4) loves it. Nice and easy to use and the shift in light output from lowest to highest is huge unlike many lanterns. Doubt it'd survive many drops but it's got a nice size and very lightweight.

Absolute bargain

Got exact same one of these last year from morrisons for £3. Nice light, not hugely bright.

Got this one this year for £2 (no batteries though)

This is alot better. Although not dimmable it is more compact & can be used as a torch

The Rolson you say is a lot better doesn't give a 360 degree light. It doesn't last 10 hours. Its not dimmable (baby's nightlight) and doesn't come with the ALDI guarantee when you keep the receipt.

asr

It does give 360 degree light (plus vertical)
It doesn't last 10 hours (mine is still going after 20 hours on high)
I stated it wasn't dimmable. However it does have high, low & high flashing settings
It doesn't come with 3 year warranty. But what can really go wrong?
It does cost 99p less than the aldi one

Well that would be why lol

I'm the colour options there's a blue & black pop up light. For some reason it won't link to that, always goes to the led one
