Ultra Bright LED Camping Lantern Review

lamp1This AYL StarLight 300 Lumens Ultra Bright LED Lantern was the perfect addition to our recent camping trip. First, WOW this little guy puts out some bright LIGHT!! 300 Lumens to be exact. There are 3 different modes of brightness bright, blinding and pulses. Depending on your needs, you can switch to any of the modes seamlessly by simply cycling the switch button.

Personally I like the shape of this lantern; short and square which helps it stay put even in the wind.

The lantern turns on with covered button.

The lantern takes 3D size batteries. Batteries are not included.  To me the AYL StarLight is the perfect green color with frosted hard plastic light shade. This lantern put off enough light that our entire campsite had plenty of light.

I love that this lamp is battery operated, not gas operated with obnoxious (and dangerous fumes)! Especially when you are traveling with a little curios camper.

There are other features that I really like too; for instance: the thin metal handle fits snug to the lantern when not in use. Inside the tent there is a hook on the bottom of lantern so the lamp hangs upside down illuminating the entire tent. It comes with a removable convex reflector cap that provides 360 lighting and that can also be removed to allow for more focused lighting.

This little guy is DURABLE! 3-year-old Alice dropped it several times over the course of week-long camping trip and it’s still perfect!

The base of the lantern has a rubber base has a good grip. It’s well protected; reinforced with plastic and rubber molding to prevent water from seeping through.

This is an excellent quality lantern. I’m thrilled that we have added it to our camping kit! Super high-efficiency LED light generates little to no heat and can be used continuously for up to six days, making it a must have for any type of emergency and safer and longer lasting than any type of emergency candles!


Nope I don’t have a single one. I am impressed all the way around. This tough lantern puts off plenty of light and doesn’t eat up the batteries either. One set lasted the entire 5 day camp out and it’s still going strong. When it’s not in our camping kit; it’s perfect for our Earth Quake preparedness kit!

    That looks like a great little lantern. I like that you can hang it upside down in the tent. (try doing that with the kind we used to go camping with).
