This is a decorative lamp designed to look like a candle lantern, but it uses an amber LED instead of a candle.
It has a real wax insert, so it really *DOES* look like a candle in there when the unit is viewed from the sides or from below.

It has a coppery-colored metal frame and a series of glass windows surrounding the LED "candle" safely tucked away inside.


To use it, you'll first want to remove the insulating tab from the battery compartment - it is there to prevent the product from "going off" in transit, leaving you with a dead battery.

On the bottom of the white inner cylinder, there is a small blue button. Press & release this button to turn the LED on.
Place this inside the lantern, and place the larger wax cylinder over it. Be certain the "flame" goes through the hole in this wax thing.
Close the door on the lantern, and latch it shut with that pin thing you see on it.

To turn the lantern off, just reverse the above steps.

Open the lantern's door. Remove the larger wax cylinder. Remove the smaller white inner cylinder.

On the bottom of the cylinder, you'll see a circular battery door with a tab on one side. Unscrew & remove the phillips screw in this tab, and set it aside.

Remove the battery door, and drop-kick it into the garden so the hungry, hungry praying mantids will think it's something yummy to eat and subsequently strike at it...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

Tip the used CR2032 cell out of the body and into your hand, and dispose of it or recycle it as you see fit.

Insert a new CR2032 cell into the chamber, orienting it so its flat-end (+) positive faces outward. Be certain it goes under that metal strap inside the battery chamber.

Put the battery door back on, and screw the screw in that you removed earlier.

Finally, reassemble the lantern as directed in the "How To Use It" section directly above.
Aren't you glad you didn't kick that battery door into the garden with all those hungry, hungry praying mantids now?

Here is what a praying mantis looks like.

This light is meant to be used as a decorative light in a reasonably dry area, not as a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, and abused, so I won't try to drown it in the toilet tank, bash it against a steel rod or against the concrete floor of a patio, let my housemate's citty kats go to the litterbox on it, run over it with a 450lb Celebrity motorised wheelchair, or perform other indecencies on it that a regular flashlight might have to have performed on it. So this section of the web page will be significantly more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

This lantern can be hung from a loop on its top or stood on any reasonably flat surface.

Test unit was purchased on the Harriet Carter website on 04-07-07, and was received on the afternoon of 04-17-07.

Product was made in China. A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.
