I am pleased with the light output of the lantern. Brightness rating is 190 lumens on "high". It has two settings - turn the switch to the right for "high", and left for "low". Lantern seems to be well made. Coleman products are known to last. The lantern handle, switch, and battery holder appear to be sturdy and not likely to break. The model that we have takes four "D" batteries. (A rechargeable battery pack is optional.) Lantern uses LED's so it is cool to the touch and will have longer battery life. The lantern body is plastic and lightweight, so after you put the batteries in, the lantern becomes more weighted at the bottom and is not likely to tip over. The lantern bottom is smooth, so it will slide if the object that it rests on is tilted. This did not bother me. You will need to add some adhesive rubber feet to the base if you want the bottom to be grippy. The lantern’s appearance is very nice and the looks are a reminder of the vintage Coleman lanterns.
