Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lantern for the price for backpacking I Google search and viewed the Youtube about this lantern. This lantern is the best for backpacking for the price, features, compactness, battery life, illumination, ease of use in various conditions, tent lighting, and light weight. Can't beat the price comparable to other lanterns. The package show the battery life at low light setting is 14 hours. I am testing it with the same setting and it is still illuminating after 16 hours so far. I am impress with this lantern. I bought several more of these lanterns for gifts. I highly recommend this Brila

Rated 5 out of 5 by from simple, effective, great price Great price, great light. Buy two!! Used to returns to get this and i would have got another if the store had them, always a good sign when a product is hard to keep in stock.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from useful, needs diagram Cool little lantern, with a magnetic bottom as well as a hanging carabiner for hooking onto a tent or backpack. High light, low light, red flash and SOS flash are all good to have. Very tight battery compartment lid on the carabiner end. I finally muscled it open with a rubber jar lid opener, after watching a youtube video.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little lantern I bought this to replace a Brunton lantern which stopped working after a battery leak. As it turned out I was able to clean up the Brunson, but this lantern is smaller and seems to put out at least as much light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light it up This light is super good. I love how small it is and I love the clip on the end that allows you to clip it up in the tent as an overhead light. Definitely good lighting too

Where do the batteries go?  I unscrewed the white plastic part, but only see the led bulbs, and no place for batteries.

Asked by: Neut
The battery compartment is on the carabiner end of the Brila lantern. The black cap unscrews counter clockwise. It may initially take a little muscle to get this cap unscrewed.
