LT1 Carry cases

If anyone look for hard case for LT1, go see JBL flip 4 speaker case, same size LT1, fit well.

I bought this same JBL Flip 4 case, and it does indeed fit just about perfectly, with space for a small power block and USB cable. I went ahead and bought a different version too. FYI – if you accidentally get a case for a JBL Charge 4, you can fit the LT1 and the JBL Flip 4 case it’s in inside the Charge 4 case. Oopsy!

Sorry, searched and could not find the ‘dimensions’ of the lantern. I want it so I can shop for a cheap neoprene camera lens case to protect it. Anybody know the dimensions?

The max diameter is almost three inches, and the length (height?) is right at 7 inches.

I found an Amazon Basics set of 4 for $15 that includes a 4” × 7.1” case. So far, that’s the closest I’ve found.

wondering if anyone has purchased this yet and tried it out? it would be nice to see if not only the LT1 fits, but also the cable, and a 115 to USB charger, the one I would put in there is 2.5”×2”×1” or so. Dual output, 24W Allmaybe EU2-ST

I have used Op/Tech neoprene pouches for years and they’ve held up well. Their Snoot Boot in size medium would be a loose but decent fit at 3.5” × 8” (cinch the top to create a tighter fit), and it has a belt loop and a snap hook which would allow attachment to a backpack, belt, etc.

What “set of 4” includes the 4×7 case?

I could use a coupla cases for Q8s and/or a DC7…

Which “this” are you asking about? If you’re asking about the Amazon link, I did and it does fit.

Doh! Answered too soon…

Yeah, goggled around, thought something came in a 4-pack with convenient case, found that it’s a 4pak of cases themselves. LOL

Yes, that this.

Any feedback on if a small brick 2.5”×2”×1” would fit in the area at the end of the case?

An Anker 2.4×2.4-ish power brick like THIS ONE is a snug fit, but the case will (just) close with that brick and a USB cable (and, of course, the LT1).

I am going off topic here , Costco is listing a competitive lantern with a rigid Pelican type case.

Ubio Labs Lantern

The only budget pelican type cases I have found are the Harbor Freight Apache

Apache

Home Depot is offering a similar case

Tool Box

I like the hard case idea, although spending the extra the money starts to get silly.

Thank you @amishbill for this thread. I will look at the ones mentioned here. I have this one in my cart at Amazon and it is still my front-runner to purchase at $15

For less than 4 bucks USD, that is great price for a soft padded case with zipper. Thumbs Up

I bought the army green colored carrying pouch for the Q8 a few years ago from BG with a strap on top, it exactly fits the LT1

Somehow, i cannot find it anymore in my order history from BG, it seems they throw away old items from over 2 years ago in my order history

FWIW I went ahead and bought the JBL Flip 4 case linked above and it fits the LT1 like it was tailor made for it.
