Coleman Lights the Way with New MicroPacker Lantern

Spectrum Brands Press Release - 1/03/2007

Sleek, Durable Dase Design Screams Performance



WICHITA, Ks. - Bright things come in small packages too. Coleman’s tradition of lighting the outdoors continues with the introduction of the 3AA Exponent® MicroPacker™ Lantern. Designed to be lightweight and portable, it packs a mighty punch for use around the campsite, inside a tent or to flood a small area with illumination.

Convenience is second nature to this lantern. The MicroPacker lantern measures a little more than 6 inches tall by 2 inches wide, small enough to hold and use in one hand. A simple click of the easy push-button control selects one of three settings – high, low and emergency. It will run up to 14 hours on low with three fresh AA batteries and up to eight hours when switched on high beam. The emergency strobe will flash for up to 75 hours

Engineered for performance, don’t let the sleek design fool you. Equipped with a bright 1-watt, white LUXEON® LED this little gem features a conical reflector for 360 degrees of even distribution of illumination. Or just lift up a panel on the back to help light the path and shield the eyes. Weighing in at just 7 ounces, the lantern is weather resistant and can be placed upright or hung.
