As its name suggests, the Coleman 360° Sound and Light Lantern delivers up to 400 lumens of bright LED light. Users can switch between three brightness settings that can be easily changed using the convenient dial on the top control panel. There you’ll also find buttons for pairing your smart device via Bluetooth and music volume controls, as well as a play and pause button.


The speaker has a 20-hour battery life and can be easily charged with a USB cable.


When used as a flashlight, battery life lasts between seven to 40 hours, depending on the brightness level you keep it at. In addition, the Coleman two-in-one lantern has an IPX4 water resistance rating, so it can withstand light splashes, splashes, splashes, and spills.




Its travel-friendly 10.28-inch by 5.35-inch by 5.28-inch frame and 1.29-pound weight make the Coleman 360° Sound and Light Lantern easy to pack and transport from the trunk to the campsite. A convenient top handle increases its portability, so you can take it with you on hikes and other adventures, or simply hang it for hands-free lighting. And when you get back home, it can be used to enhance your outdoor entertainment or as an emergency light.


It’s “the best flashlight I’ve ever had,” raved an Amazon buyer, who also mentioned it was a “huge hit at the campsite.” Another customer said he “couldn’t be happier” with the lantern speaker and exclaimed that the “great product” is a “perfect addition to any camping trip!”


According to one impressed reviewer, “The sound quality was unexpectedly good,” while another buyer said, “Just put it on the picnic table and you’ve got lights and music for the evening.”




As for its durability, one buyer happily reported that they were “dropped [it] twice accidentally on rocks” and “still worked afterwards and not scratched” after backpacking. One avid camper chimed in, adding, “It’s a high-quality light and a high-quality speaker, and you don’t have to worry about batteries or propane to run it. That’s a pretty nice set of wins for this product.”


In addition to being a “camping must,” buyers emphasize that it’s useful for beach trips, “backyard campfire time” and other occasions. And one Amazon customer was grateful to have the Coleman 360° Sound and Light Lantern on hand during a three-hour power outage: “It’s a pretty handy device… For emergencies, nights at the campsite with light and music, it’s great! ”
