Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless I bought this item along with a new lantern in 2014, when the rechargeable battery on my old lantern was "no longer supported" by Coleman. OK, I'll buy into the "newer" technology. It worked fine over the summer last year, but I pulled it out anticipating the first use this year only to be disappointed. I stored it in its original box, but failed to pull it out monthly and charge it. I charged it when I pulled it out after about 9 months of storage and charged it for about a week. No go. REI said they will refund/exchange since its been less than a year, but what a worthless product. The lantern works fine with D batteries, but the rechargeable item was a waste.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Completely useless I bought this several years ago thinking it would make my camping more efficient and a little greener. Rechargeable batteries instead of buying huge D cell batteries every so often. Wrong! This battery never fully charged the lantern, you could see a huge lumen difference between this and when the lantern was using conventional batteries. It would work at that limited level before dying altogether after about 30 minutes. I replaced it under warranty, and had the exact same problems with the next battery. They are using an older battery technology to make these for some reason. Which is surprising because I find most coleman products to work extremely well. Just not this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from CPX™6 RECHARGEABLE POWER CARTRIDGE I am a big fan of rechargeable equipment. I am also a big fan of Coleman equipment. I started using rechargeable cordless drills in 1982. I have a 3 burner Coleman stove I bought used 30 years ago and it works great. I bought into the Coleman CPX 6 system with 2 battery packs and a lantern and pump. I used both pieces of equipment last summer and everything worked great. I used the lantern throughout the year with no problems. This summer I was getting ready for our first camping trip, and checked everything out and it was working great. I plugged the battery packs in to make sure they were topped off for the start of our first camping trip and when I was going to fill up the air mattresses, neither battery pack worked. Luckily, I was able to fill them up with the pump for my Achilles inflatable. When I checked the Coleman website I realized that they were using Lead Acid batteries in the battery packs. I thought they stopped making lead acid batteries when Ben Franklin passed away. In 2013, Coleman decided introduce a product using 18th century technology. I love the pump and the lantern, but I had to drop a hundred bucks into some NiMH D cells and a charger. If I had realized they were using antique technology in the battery packs, I would have bought the NiMH stuff from the get go. Buy the Coleman equipment, but not their battery pack. You can find much better batteries and chargers on the web for almost the same price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst rechargeable battery It is the worst rechargeable battery ever built. It only worked once and I never couldn't recharge again, not even with the car charger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent system. I have multiple CPX6 items for camping, and is excellent for power outages at home.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a piece of junk! I was happy with the performance the first time I charged & tested it, but like so, so many other reviewers here, when I took it out the next season, the battery is completely useless: the light is immediately green indicating a full charge, but zero power is delivered to the lantern. (The lantern itself works, as it illuminates while the battery is plugged in.) I'll take Coleman's word for it that if I had regularly drained & recharged it, the battery would have lasted, but this is a serious design flaw. Furthermore, I have another lantern that uses the same antiquated battery technology, but that one is at least such that I can pick up a new generic 6V battery for a couple bucks and swap it out easily with only a screwdriver. If this battery pack were cheap, I'd be far more forgiving, but for this price, I shouldn't need to think about doing charge cycles all winter long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more batteries The price of batteries is outrageous, so I purchased the rechargable power cartridge. This was an excellent purchase, good price, good value, good for the environment. I like the fact you can charge at home or on the go with the adapters provided. Again Coleman rocks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement battery The original rechargeable battery woouldn't hold a charge anymore, so this was to replace that one. I charged it per instructions and tried it out. The lantern works again like it's supposed to. The D-Cell cartridge is still OK, but I like the recharge feature.
