    TacLight Lantern by Bell & Howell

    Not what I purchased.

    Overall Experience:

    Two days after putting nice Duracell batteries in, the lantern I used first quite nicely fried one of the LED bars at the top, causing noxious fumes. We're talking regular Duracell AA batteries.

    So, I have a couple of Chinese lanterns that you can put in the sun or charge with a hand crank generator and lithium batteries for half the price, and I have had them for years. I've been waiting for these lanterns since November. I was supposed to get one up-armored deluxe model and one basic one. Also, I would like to ask who sends a paper contract after the time of sale stipulating that all legal action be done through arbitration? We're talking about $20 products?

    I have a good cause for a lawsuit, but it's not worth the piece of crap I ordered. I'm a military veteran, and this is the kind of crap that gets people killed with the advertising they put on TV. The first one in two days loses a light bar and melts one of its top light bars while it's sitting on my bed! That's not exactly a deuce-and-a-half now is it? I will be calling about the refund when I can wake up during the day.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
