- Q & A
Up to 700 lumens!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The 30-day lantern can put out 700 lumens on high. It also has a medium (140 lumens) and low mode (30 lumens). On low, it will stay on for 30 days! On high, it will last for 22 hours. I got the glow in the dark colorway which is really cool - it glowed in my tent all night. Another cool feature is the recessed hook on the base and removable globe to hang it upside down as an area light. The light seems pretty durable so far.
UST 30-Day Latern
Small but bright
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought this lantern and the black diamond Titan at he same time. They are extremely similar and I would recommend either. I decided to keep the 30 day because it was smaller, slightly brighter and uses less batteries for more light.
Side by side comparison, the black diamond was a warmer softer glow with its frosted exterior, but the ability to take off the 30 day globe and hang it upside down was the tip of the scale. Used in this way it was far superior and shed the best light (we were using it for prepping s'mores on a picnic table, setting up a tent in the dark and playing cards).
My only complaint is that after the trip, unpacking the car I found that the button had been bumped and the light was on. It needs a better covering so the light can't come on accidentally. I have since then drawn an epoxy circle around the button to create a bumper for it - this also has the perk that it is easier to find the button in the dark.
