- Good for Camping
It is good as a general light inside of the tent when you're camping. You can hang it in a tent and walk around at night when you're camping to see the things that are in front of you.
- Led Bulbs
This unit uses COB LEDs which are stacked across three atomic beam reflectors to give you the best light.
The unit can allegedly handle any abuse. It is water resistant and weather resistant meaning you can take it underwater with you. What's more, it also has a durable case such that it can withstand a high-impact fall.
- Power Outages
It is a suitable option if the power goes out while you are at home.
It is easy to carry around.
You have the option to upgrade the unit you are purchasing so that it has a magnetic base. Magnetic bases allow you to stick the light upside down while you are working so that it still holds on. This is ideal for situations such as looking under the hood of your car where you might not have a place to hang the lantern or sit it without it falling. In such cases you can simply stick it to the bottom of the hood and pull it open exposing the light that you need.
This ultra bright tactical lantern claims to offer you military grade technology. The wording is a little questionable insofar as the website states that the military uses some of the most powerful lighting in the world and now you can use that same technology at home. This does not specifically say that the exact same technology used by military is used in this design. However, it is stronger and brighter than a traditional flashlight.
- Bright and Sturdy
You do get 360° of bright, white light. The case is very sturdy and portable, such that if it were to fall down a hill, fall off your truck bed, or be exposed to extreme temperatures while you're camping, it would still work. In cases such as boating, if it were to fall in the water and you scooped it up rather immediately it wouldn't cause permanent damage.
- Brightness in Your Face
The brightness, because of the 360° can be very difficult to work with because it constantly shines in your face. There is no way for you to change the angle or prevent it from hitting you when you were holding it.
- No Control
There is no way to control the brightness of this lantern so while it is very useful in lighting up a large area. However, if you wanted to have a small night light next to your campfire or inside of your tent it would be hard. If you just wanted something very dim that saved on battery power, you would not have those options with this design.
To operate the Atomic Beam Lantern you do need three AA batteries. This is kind of a down side insofar as the more you use it, the faster you will drain the battery life. The more expensive the regular operational costs will be. Additionally, due to the fact that it does use batteries in order to operate, if you do not check the battery life before you head out it is problematic. If you find yourself in an emergency situation without fully charged batteries, having the light won't matter because it won't work.
- Weather Resistance
Due to the fact that does operate on batteries it is not ideal for prolonged use outdoors in inclement weather. The weather resistant feature simply means that it won't break immediately if the weather changes. However, that doesn't mean that you should keep it outside in something like rain or snow for multiple days at a time. Doing so will cause the batteries to rest not necessarily the unit itself.
How It Works
Much like any lantern on the market today this lantern is built inside of a sturdy case so that the light itself is protected. Traditional LED lightbulbs are what provide a better brightness and longer lifespan. The unit folds into itself so that when you are not using it, it stands just roughly 6 to 8 inches in height.
There are two metal handles on either side which fold down against the main container when not in use. When you want to use the light those two handles conflict upward so that you can hang the lantern from something. Upon pulling the top part up you will expose the bright light. There is no on or off switch for this lantern light many, because the act of pushing it downturns it off while the act of pulling it open and turns it on. If you want a dimmer light or you don't want the light to cover as wide a span you can always open it halfway.

Does Not Turn Off
When I completely drop the lid the light does not turn off. It still shows in the slight gap between the lid and base. The only way I can save the batteries is to remove them until needed. If I am doing something wrong, please write a review with your helpful hint. The light is great when in use.

Just bought an Atomic Beam Lantern at Wal-Mart and I am taking it back. The light isn't bright at all, it's very weak. If it had been bright as advertised I would have gone back and bought two more. Instead, I am taking this one back and getting a refund. I was afraid it was too good to be true. Most stuff "as seen on tv" is poor quality.
