When I received the Ultimate Survival Technologies (UST) Duro 30 Day LED Lantern, I was excited to be able to use it while camping this Summer and Fall. Never did I envision I would be using it much, much sooner.

The UST Duro 30 Day LED Lantern in GLO is a 300 lumen LED light that is water-resistant and can be left on for thirty days on low. The lifetime LED bulb is unbreakable and never needs changing. The light can be used as is on a table, the globe can be removed to provide forward area light, or the recessed hook on the base can be used to provide down light. At just 7.2” x 3.75”, you get a lot of light out of a small lantern, and it only takes three D batteries. The cool part is that the GLO actually glows in the dark, so you can find the lantern in an emergency.

Generally, I am prepared for most emergency situations, but when the power went out, and the temperature was fifteen below zero, I went into a bit of a panic! Thankfully I had already put batteries into the GLO Lantern, and with its ability to glow in the dark, it was only a matter of a few minutes before I had light on. Then I was able to focus on heat! How many times have you known you were ready for an emergency, but then during the suddenness of the situation, you can’t find your lantern because the house is already dark? No more!

We camp several times a year. We generally rough it; we use a lot of kerosene lanterns, but the light is generally dim. The GLO is small enough to pack in tight spots, and the light it puts off is plenty bright enough to light the area you are in. We use it over our camp stove for cooking and on the camp table for the grand-kids to work on book work or to play cards. Later the GLO lights up our box trailer to illuminate our sleeping quarters. I haven’t had to use the light for a full thirty days, but I can attest to the lantern lasting for a week in the evenings and a bit in the early mornings on the same set of batteries.

The MSRP of the UST Duro 30 Day LED Lantern is $49.99 and can be purchased at http://www.ustbrands.com/product/30-day-led-lantern-glo/. You can get more information by watching the YouTube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MW8gNWfwOjE
