"In the great outdoors, getting more out of a single tool means a better time at camp and less gear and weight in your pack...the Lantern's flat bottom and diffuser let you stand it up on the ground, table or other flat surface in lantern mode, and the included strap and carabiner let you hang it off a branch or tent ceiling."

  • Powerful 4000mAh battery backup that quickly charges ANY device.
  • Rechargeable LANTERN battery allows for up to 72 hours run time.

The funds raised on Kickstarter will be used to complete the moulds and tooling of the lantern diffuser, and to help fund the initial order of lights.

Our team is extremely passionate about our product and we are so excited about the potential of getting LANTERN into hands around the world. In order to delivery the highest quality product, we have partnered with an experienced manufacturer that has a proven track record in producing high quality products. We have already completed the full design, tooling and moulds for the flashlight component. We have also produced several fully functional hand made Lantern diffusers that you see in our images and videos, and have completed all the design modifications to make it fit perfectly. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rolling Enterprises, developers of LANTERN, believe that all people should have the opportunity to have outdoor experiences that are fun, full of adventure, and safe. In our first year of building the fund, we will partner with organizations that connect as many people to the outdoors as possible.

2% of the proceeds from our Kickstarter campaign will go to the LANTERN Fund, managed for us by the Place2Give Foundation.

 

 

Risks and challenges

Our team has been working very hard to develop and deliver the highest quality product. To do this, we have partnered with an experienced manufacturer that has a proven track record in producing high quality products. We have already completed the full design, tooling and moulds for the flashlight component. We have also produced fully working hand-made lantern diffusers, and have completed all the design modifications to make it fit perfectly. All we have left is to fund the tooling and moulds needed to mass-produce the Lantern diffuser and we will have completed everything relating directly to the product production. Our manufacturing partner has assured us that they have ample capacity to fulfill our first order in a timely manner.

Even with all the due-diligence and pre-planning we have completed, some issues with manufacturing do occasionally happen that are unexpected. These could delay our delivery, but we are confident that the likelihood of this is minimal.

We have a solid production plan and we commit ourselves to letting you know of any delays in the delivery of LANTERN as quickly as possible.
