On the face of it, this seems like a good deal. A 2-pack of lanterns that is half off today as one of Amazon’s special “Deals of the Day.”  Specifically, you can get it for $30 instead of $60. Sounds like quite the bargain.

Bell + Howell Taclight Lantern (Pack of 2) on sale for $29.99

And people are buying this. It currently is a #1 new release! But there’s more to the story. Before you take advantage of the savings, you need to see the single customer review. Only one person has put their thoughts about this product online, and he gave it the rating of death – a paltry 1 out of 5 stars. Needless to say, he does not like this one bit:

Don’t buy these. The COB LEDs are bright, but they create an annoying glare with its clear globe. You’re better off buying a similar looking lantern that comes with a frosted globe, rechargeable batteries, and a button to adjust the LED brightness and switch to red LED mode. You can find this better lantern here on Amazon sold under multiple manufacturer names such as Etekcity, Oak Leaf, and SUBOOS.

To his credit, a 2-pack from Etekcity is also discounted right now, over half off in fact. It’s actually cheaper than “Deal of the Day” pack, and it also comes with 6 batteries.

Etekcity 2 Pack Portable Outdoor LED Camping Lantern with 6 AA Batteries (Black, Collapsible) on sale for $17.99

And while the Bell + Howell option might normally cost more ($60 compared to $40), the Etekcity 2-pack has the benefit of literally thousands of positive, 5-star reviews. I’d definitely recommend going with Etekcity.
