A Beautiful, elegant, artistically interesting product that creates a bright light in such a unique fashion.

This is the second light I purchased. This one for my brother Larry who loved it so much. Thought it would be great for camping with his family as they like to play cards in the evening with family and friends. This lamp makes plenty of light for that. They are on a rainy Memorial Day mini vacation right now. Hope the light brightens the damp darkness. The light does what it promises!
must use their tea lights

When the tea light is burning just right it does put out a lot of light. Where you lift the top, the 2 outer arms are shiny metal that reflects the light, and can be into your eyes. You can order the tea lights from the same company that makes the light - so it is not that one cannot get them. As apparently other tea lights (aloha bay) are too tall, and will cause the safety protocol to occur, a loud pop (what was that! ), and will put out the flame. Overall I am not happy with this. Great idea, but the implementation needs some improvement.

I got this lantern as a Christmas gift for my parents and they were amazed and so happy with this product. My parents do a lot of camping and this lantern will work perfectly in their screen house.

This lamp really WORKS! Unsure about previous low-rated review, guessing the customer either didn't leave it lit long enough to heat up, or didn't know the top (roof) portion elevates and tilts to direct the light where needed. Astonishing amount of light generated from a simple tealight, discovered how useful this lamp is during a recent electrical outage. Glad I had it around the house, ordering another one now.

We have owned a JOI candle powered LED light for about two years. We normally use it on the patio, but we just used it within the last two weeks during a three hour power outage. Our daughter had to come over to borrow some candles, and she was impressed. It easily lights up our kitchen, dining room, and family room area. Both daughters are getting one for Christmas this year!

Dumb. For $109 bucks, I can buy a LOT of tea-lights, hurricane-lamps and flash-light batteries. The 8 LEDs will just begin to make up for the difference of the housing blocking the tea-light. 70 lumens, by the way, is equivalent to 5 standard candle wicks (any size-shape-configuration). Really - this is not a cost-effective way of lighting anything.

The colder the air around it, the brighter it is. A good bright light to read or eat by or light your steps.
