When you think of the name Zippo you automatically think of the lighter, and a good one at that. But that is not all they are good at. Zippo Outdoor has launched a whole new line of products geared to the family and car camping community. These products are innovative and built to the high quality standards of the infamous Zippo lighters.
One of the newest products for 2014 is the Zippo Outdoor lantern. This is not your ordinary LED lantern, it’s way more rugged than that. When out camping or in the woods we know that lanterns tend to get a little abused, they get dropped, rained on, and left on when no one is around. Campers love LED lanterns because no one wants to mess with propane. LED lanterns might be easy but they rarely last over one good season of use. Unless you have the new Zippo Outdoor Rugged Lantern, this thing was built to last, just like their lighters. The Rugged Lantern can easily withstand drops of up to 5 feet, it can be submerged in water and it floats. To make the rechargeable lithium ion battery last the brightness can be adjusted from 10% up to 100% light. There is even an SOS setting in which the lantern will flash. We were really impressed with the quality of this lantern and with how brightly it shines. This is a lantern that you can use for many, many camping seasons with the piece of mind knowing it will work even in tough conditions.
