COAST LED Outshines the Competition
COAST LED Lenser Lanterns use proprietary Reflector technology to provide incredible brightness and energy efficiency. As a result, LEDs operate at a lower cost and require less energy for brilliant light. COAST LED Lenser Large Lantern can operate up to 80 hours at full brightness with only four D batteries. A standard fluorescent lantern requires 25 D batteries for the same amount of light output and time as COAST’s.
Manufacturer suggested retail price for COAST’s LED Lenser Lanterns is $149.99 for the large lantern; $59.99 for the small lantern.
