The BYB portable lantern is a go to lantern when we camp or hike. The LED lights provide plenty of light to illuminate a 12 ft X 12ft room. Closed the lantern is about the size of a 12 can. Two well attached handles can be used to carry or hang the lantern. The AAA batteries last long because the LEDs drain the charge slowly. The lantern is rugged. The indirect light of the lantern is best. It's not a light you would want to look directly into.
