In Friday’s “Deal of the Day,” you can pick up the Rayovac Sportsman LED Lantern (http://goo.gl/flwIyJ) for 40% off. This is a great buy on a highly regarded lantern that’s welcome at any RV campsite, garage, or backyard barbecue. For less than $20, you simply can’t go wrong with this light.
The Sportsman lantern is an example of how LED technology is improving our lives.
LED lighting has many benefits over the old bulbs we were using not so long ago. In the old days, similar lanterns short-lived were battery hogs that didn’t produce much light. All of that is changing for the better, and this unit is a good example.
The Sportsman is an incredibly bright (240 lumens) light that’s also quite portable (just 7 inches tall).
The 4-Watt LEDS last 100,000 hours and never need replacing.
Battery life is excellent; over 90 hours on low mode, 40 hours on high.
It’s powered by 3 D batteries. Personally, I’d use Eneloop rechargable batts (http://goo.gl/RRnWwu) with the D-battery adapters. Eneloop batteries are fantastic.
Rain in the forecast? No worries. The Sportsman lantern is water resistant and includes a lifetime warranty.
There are a couple of hooks on the light that make it easy to hang wherever you want.
The new LED lanterns really put the old school models to shame. You can grab one at the special price today!
