Rated 4 out of 5 by gmarisc don't know if it will last in a storm
but it has worked for me already when i have needed light to see. I just hope that for the money it turns out to be worth it when we have a storm.
Rated 1 out of 5 by phapha Worst possible purchase I have ever made
I bought this in October 2015. Checked it out and seemed to work fine. So I put it away awaiting a power failure. I brought it out today to use in case of power outage tonight and voila! does not work. Apparently it cannot be held in reserve for a power failure. All batteries are dead. Worse product I have ever tried to use!!!! Poor quality from Coleman and QVC should not have it in stock at all. I am furious with the amount of money I spent on it to never get to use it!!!! It would cost a fortune to keep it in standby. I am just plain angry!!!!!

I bought 3 of these lanterns for gifts for Christmas 2015. 3-6 months later, they no longer worked. The panels would not work independently, but only when on the base. The base went out when you took off the panels. On one of them, the on/off button would not work after only a few uses. I called the Coleman customer service and they replaced one and it does the same thing. I went to get it out to use the other day and it would not work. Not worth the money and I expected Coleman product to be good.

I bought this about a year ago. At first it worked great. Panels came off and would light up and the whole unit worked. About 6 months later it needed new batteries. I really had not used it very much. Put new batteries in and although the unit lit up,I could not take the panels off. The panels did not light up. Even after replacing these new batteries with more expensive ones, it still did not work. The whole unit will light up but I cannot take the panels off. They will not light up unless they are on the unit.
I will never buy another Coleman product on QVC or anywhere else. As other poor review I've given, I doubt this will ever see light of day.

Like many of the other reviewers, this seemed like a great product, and I turned it on as soon as I received it, and it worked great. Maybe 2-3 months later, we had a power outage, but I was really confident in the Coleman Lantern and pulled it out of the cabinet --- and batteries dead. So we had to resort to the same flashlights we have always had. This turned out to be the running joke about flashlights -the only thing a flashlight is good for is storing dead batteries! The sad part is we've had batteries in flashlights that lasted longer than this. I guess with all the extra panels it pulls a lot of juice to rest. We have a Worx weed eater that does not bleed off the charge unless it is being used. Maybe they should have offered chargeable batteries instead of regular batteries. You live and learn.

I bought the lantern for my husband for Christmas last year on 6 easy pays. He opened the box and used it one time for a brief electricity outage during the winter. He put it back into the box. Sadly did not think to take the batteries out. When Hurricane Matthew came went to take it out of the box and the lantern base was completely destroyed. While not the lantern fault, I wished we had of known to take out batteries. I mean, emergency lights are used in emergencies and you dont or maybe cannot see to put batteries in. I had to throw base away. We used it one time.. possibly a hour. We did save the removable panels but they are hard to charge without base but it can be done. $80 even on sale is hefty for a light. I have left batteries in other lights and never had a problem or mess like I had with this one only after such a short period of time. And it was in climate controlled room not hot storage. Just strange..

I purchased the Coleman Elite lantern because of it's quality. My family has always been Coleman fans, and I knew I could not go wrong making this purchase,
Things i love about this product:
It can be broken down and shared with family members, It's LED & rechargeable. Most of all the quality speaks for itself!
I LOVE this product!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Pearl No longer works as described
I purchased this lantern in October, 2015, and used it for power outages a few times. I needed to use it during Hurricane Matthew, but the break-away panels would not light up when they were detached from the main unit. I have changed out the batteries twice, and it still doesn't operate properly.
