Olympia Outdoors Lantern

Came across this lantern (at 2:56), don’t know which batteries it runs on, nor do I have runtimes and etc (I don’t see it listed on their site yet). But I got to say I really like the mounting options and the price.

The headlamp doesn’t really add anything new, but the lantern and the powerbank are interesting. Difficult to say how good they are without some actual testing, so I’m hoping some of you folks may give a try and shed some light on their products.

another old u.s name bought and stuck on generic chinese stuff.
i am pretty sure i saw that usb lantern on dealextreeme of some such site.
bad thing about it is no removeable battery.
run it down and its done til you can charge it.
no matter how nice it might seem thats a deal killer.
$6 cheapies now run on 3aaa or 1 18650.

I see what you mean, I had not seen one like that so I expected it to be something new. Maybe I’ll try to get one of the chinese ones for less and try to mod it, make it so the batteries are more easily exchangeable. I checked their site and indeed, they seem to simply rebranded chinese stuff. Thanks for the heads up anyway!!!

I found the WD180 lantern on the Olympia website with all of the product information. It uses a 2000mAh built-in Lithium Polymer rechargeable battery.

Here is a link to the product page for the lantern: http://www.olympiaproducts.com/products/lantern.html
