You'll be blown away by the lighting power of this lamp—and its $21 price tag. Adjust the brightness up to 1,000 lumens by flipping through four modes (daylight white, warm white, full brightness and flashing). The lantern's long battery life means it'll last 12 hours, even at the brightest setting. It's also water-resistant, so no stressing about rainy days, and has a hanging hook for overhead lighting.

"The light output was a pleasant surprise, given the lantern's size," a happy user wrote in the reviews. "It lit up our camping area perfectly. We were able to cook, play cards and read easily."

The Lighting Ever rechargeable lantern lasts up to 12 hours on a single charge. Just charge it up at home and go. (An indicator light lets you know when the battery is running low.) It even serves as a power bank for your phone and other mobile devices in an emergency. Toggle between four lighting modes — just press the lamp switch to adjust between white, warm, combined, and flash mode. A 360-degree beam makes sure you won't be left in the dark.

"I was skeptical at first because I couldn't believe such a small lantern could put out as much light as they claim, but HOLY COW was I wrong," a five-star fan wrote. "This light, on low mode, is as bright as the lamp in my bedroom. The high mode is extremely bright, I'm really impressed with it."
