    Used this for several overnight trips with great success. Light lasted quite a while on low setting with the crank recharging it at a decent pace. The attachment and hanging sections worked well withotut adding bulk to the package. Have always used propane lanterns but this has convinced me to give LED technology a chance. The attention to details has left nothing to chance. The charging cord wraps perfectly and stays in place. It's nice to not have to worry about empty tanks and broken mantles. This will be the high water mark other LED lanterns will soon be compared with.

    I bought this lantern twice. Yes, twice. The first time I got it from Amazon and the lens had a scuff mark on multiple sides, almost like it had been used before. I returned it for a new one and used it for the first time on the PCT with my son on a quick overnight backcountry trip. I clipped the lantern on the back of my 70L Gregory pack and was very happy with the light output and functionality of the lantern. The folding legs and ability to change the direction of the light output from one-side to two-sides is nice. I agree with the others that the USB cord is a bit short for recharging, but I think it was a design choice, since the lantern is only so large in diameter to have the cord self-store around itself. You're probably wondering, "so what's the problem". The problem is when I returned home I discovered the lantern was hanging lopsided because the metal hanging ring had come out of one side where its held in by the tension of the bent D-Ring shape. The problem is the metal is just to soft to hold its shape and any kind of tugging or pulling on the hanging ring will easily deform it and make it slip out of its sockets too easily. But, the major problem with the lantern is the lack of scratch resistance on the lens. My lantern came back from one trip with lots of scratch marks on the lens and although they don't block the light, they will eventually and it just makes the lantern look low quality and shoddy. Maybe GZ used plastic instead of glass for weight, maybe they used non-scratch resistant plastic on the lens, or maybe they just didn't test this aspect. The result is a great product with poor durability and craftsmanship. Not the usual GZ standards IMHO. For the price, I would have expected more.

    Best Lantern Ever

    Comments about Goal Zero Lighthouse 250 Lantern:

    I have a had a variety of different lanterns and lights in my van and have since taken them all out and only use the Goal Zero products now. Definitely worth the purchase. You will get the use out of it for sure. You can even charge your phone with it if you need to. Bonus battery!

    Great Lantern that also Charges Phones

    By GZ Tester

    Comments about Goal Zero Lighthouse 250 Lantern:

    Full disclosure: I'm a Goal Zero employee who has been testing this product for several months now. I've been using iterations of the Lighthouse 250 for several months now, and in my opinion this version of the Lighthouse is a huge step up from the previous version. Updates from the previous version include: - Adjustable light. You can light one side of the LED to use to light a path, and you can adjust the brightness. - Brighter light. This version is 250 lumens, which is much, much brighter than the previous version. - Double battery capacity. - USB rechargeable. Charge from any USB plug, computer or any Goal Zero solar panel. - Size. It's half the size of the previous version. - Charges most smart phones 2x. Still has: - Dynamo emergency crank - Emergency LED functionality - Durable construction Great lantern that also charges phones.

    Lighthouse Lantern Lasts!

    By JB88

    from Milwaukee WI

    Comments about Goal Zero Lighthouse 250 Lantern:

    I keep this lantern on my kitchen counter for emergencies, and in case I want a portable light inside or outside. I really like the size, and the quality of the light but what impresses me is how long the battery lasts. It seems not matter how long I neglect to check it, the lantern easily keeps 3/4 of its battery power.
