I just got the NEW Coast Products EAL20 LED lantern.  It retails for $40.  A bargain for any high quality light.  But I had to put it to the test.  So I went into the woods, and kicked it around.  First I scoped it from a distance.  I was pleased by the brightness of the flashing red LED light.  The EAL20 would be great to have around in case of emergency.  It’s very visible,  but also portable.  I also like the way it feels.  It’s rubbery, and easy to handle.  It’s a good size when you’re on the go.  I can see myself using this indoors, and outdoors; while camping, or working on a project.  Few lanterns are this versatile,  if any.

I beat it up too.  I dropped it from my side, at hip level, onto the frozen ground.  It still worked.  I booted it hard, and it didn’t mind.  Then I tossed it in the bushes.  No problem for the Coast product.  It’s durable, just like they say.  I was impressed.  It passed the Survival Bros stress test with ease.  I’m sure I will have this emergency lantern for years to come.  It will be by my bedside this evening.  I love using the red light during the night, because it doesn’t affect my night vision like white light does.  I’m still able to see fine when I turn it off, because my eyes don’t have to adjust after using the red light.  Plus, the EAL20 is loaded with features.  The best part about the design is the dimmer.  Using it at the level you want saves battery power.  There’s even a sly battery life indicator on the front, so you know how much juice is left.  In the video I misspoke, there are actually 8 red LED lights, and one bright white light bulb in the center.  I highly recommend this LED lantern.  I don’t have any issues with it at this time.
