Dorcy LED Globe Lantern *Review #Fathersday #survival



We had a horrible storm the other night. High winds, hail, raging thunderstorms and wouldn't you know our electricity went out. It was evening and we had just gotten home from church with tired kiddos. Not looking forward to a night of no electric and young kids afraid of the dark. Dorcy.com came to the rescue with their 4D LED Twin Globe Lantern





I had gotten this item for review a few months ago, and unfortunately due to extreme morning sickness had to put it on the back burner. The kids had taken it outside a time or two and I knew that it was an awesome product. Well the storm just reinforced the fact that every family needs a lantern like this in their emergency kit. So much safer than lighting candles throughout the house, especially with young children and animals. 


This lantern lit up the entire living room making it easy for us to get around and made the children feel so much more secure. Even with just one globe lit we could clearly see around us. It was so much stronger and brighter than candles or flashlights. The beam length is 20 feet. The globe also offers an amber nightlight that was great for the evening while the kids sleep, and would make a great night light while out camping.

one globe gives off 350 hours of illumination
two globes gives off 175 hours of illuminiation
night light gives off 700 hours of illuminiation
all of these on 4 D Batteries.





he 160 Lumen 4D Twin Globe LED Lantern is the first battery operated lantern to approximate the illumination characteristics of traditional gas / mantel lanterns. This lantern’s design allows it to radiate 360° of light with 160 Lumens of light output. The durable body construction allows this lantern to float and makes it completely waterproof with an IPX7 rating. The Twin Globe Lantern contains two brightness settings, for high and low settings, and an amber night light. The highest LED settings allows for 175 hours of continuous use, the lowest giving 350 hours, and the amber LED allows for 700 hour of continuous use. The lantern is topped off with a sturdy handle featuring a pop-out hanger hook allowing for hands free use.

They also carry flashlights, headlamps, spotlights and motion sensor lights. Dorcy tops my list for shopping this season for Father's Day as well as getting our survival equipment updated. It will also be my go-to for the holiday season when each of my children want flashlights.

They have some great products for Disaster Preparedness as well.
