The Nitecore LA10 mini camping lantern has a maximum output of 135 lumens from the Cree XP-G2 S3 LED and features a unique extendable / retractable diffuser. Operating in a similar fashion to a lipstick, the diffuser retracts inside the body of the light when not in use, ensuring a compact size when being carried. On the brightest setting the LA10 has an effective illuminated area of 10 meters in diameter.
Powered by a single AA battery (alkaline or NiMH) with a maximum runtime of 23 hours on the lowest brightness setting, the Nitecore LA10 is an ideal travel companion as these batteries are cheap to buy and readily available pretty much anywhere in the world.
Operated by a rotating tail cap to turn on /off and adjust brightness levels. Tighten the tail cap to turn the light on, loosen it to turn off. Turn the light on again within 2 seconds after switching off to adjust brightness levels:
