15 August 2016That review has been deposited on this product versionVery fiddly
The compact pop up design looked like a good idea, but it is a very fiddly product in every respect. To pop it up is straight forward, and depending on the switch setting, turns the light on or off.
If you want to retract the light your problems start. Even when you hold the light firmly in both hands it takes about 3 or 4 goes before the bottom and base connect in the right position to allow you to lock it.
The switch itself is hard to find even in daylight. Then it is very unresponsive to get into the desired setting.
Thirdly the hanging hook keeps popping out. Apart from being annoying, it's only a matter of time until you lose it.
Doing all of this in daylight is a challenge. Imagine that in a dark tent when all you want is go to sleep.
Don't buy it.Brand's answer :
Thanks for the review on the Quechua BLX 300 camping light.
I apologise for the inconvenience caused by the operation of the light. I shall pass your comments on to the product manger for this product.

15 July 2015I recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionGreat little light
My son uses this for all his camping trips and says its much better than the torch he used to use. However after a couple of years the light is now very dim and we cant work out how to change the batteries. There are no instructions on the lamp and no screws or other obvious ways of finding the battery compartment! HELP!!!

This lamp was bought for a camping trip of two weeks. The lamp was very reliable and provided plenty of light. One set of batteries lasted me the whole trip, but I took spare AA batteries just in case. The lamp folds away and takes up very little room and the built in diffuser means that the light is not too harsh. If it was a little cheaper then it would be perfect.

This lamp is ideal if you are trying to keep your gear to a minimum. It's dead light & very compact when folded away. It gives off great light, as much as much bulkier lamps I've had and has handy hooks for hanging. My daughter thinks it's so cool she now uses it for her bedside light at home!

My friends had this light for our recent festival visit and I was so impressed. It was much brighter than the expensive light we had.
