10 Best NEBO LED Lanterns
for November 2022

MOOZ Themes editors select recommendations independently, so your purchase through our link may earn us a commission.

We consider every aspect of lighting technology. We test brightness and color temperature, as well as beam distance and beam pattern. We look at battery life and aesthetic details. Lastly, we test lighting output outdoors. We scrutinize nearly everything - from materials to patterns to finishes - in each lantern's design to find pure joy in illumination.

We also spend a lot of time testing how each lantern feels in use. We hold them in our hands, adjusting them, and thinking about how long they'll last, where they're best used, and how they compare in cost to other lanterns. We've found that the best LED lantern is the one you'll use and enjoy for a long time.

The magnetic base makes this flashlight easy to keep in place, but it's a little bulky and may be difficult to fit in a pocket or purse.
