While it may have value in emergencies, I think the greatest use of this LED lantern would be as lighting for your portable workspace. If you are lucky enough to have a yard or a deck this lantern would help create a wonderful evening work or reading space.
OXO Candela Luau is a portable LED lantern that stays lit up to 10 hours, is cool to the touch, and provides soothing light. Luau is suitable for a wide variety of settings. On the bedside, at the BBQ, or on the patio, the Luau lantern is practical for everyday use but unique enough for special occasions. Portable and cordless, Luau can be placed on the dinner table and lends a festive accent to parties or evenings outdoors. Luau’s dimming feature allows you to control brightness by simply rotating the lantern’s integrated base. A discreet colored light on the base indicates the lamp’s charging status—orange if it’s charging and green when it’s fully charged. Luau illuminates automatically when lifted from the charging base or during a power outage. When placed on the charging base, it automatically recharges for the next use. With Luau, there are no bulbs or candles to replace and rechargeable nickel-metal-hydride batteries ensure that it can be used again the next day and the day after that… for years of enjoyment.
