This light looks and feels solid. I have looked for good affordable camp/Tent light that is waterproof, lightweight, will last long and reasonable in price. I have found and bought one.
This pear shaped light has a green 'glow in the dark' rubber switch on top of the light. It comes with its remote control powered by coin battery CR2025. The white light is truly white and not a cream 'off whiteish' or even white violet tint kinda light.
The white light has three steps of brightness. The lamp also has a lime yellow light that has two steps the lower step is more yellowish in colour while the brighter step is more lime greenish in colour.
The light doesn't seem to repel mosquitos per se, but will not attract them when the yellow lights are used.
The advertisement reads that the lamp is waterproof; but ironically, the manual reads keep away from water. I guess it meant don't immerse it in water. Well I am not courageous to try deeping it to test.
It does look to be rain and splash prove.
While charging the lamp, it flashes a semi fast intermittent cool red light like a vehicle turn indicators does. The manual warns that it may get hot, but it doesn't get hot but just slightly warm as most electronics does while charging.
I used the remote from distances and it remained effective from 1m (3.28 ft) to 12m (39.37 ft), the response didn't fade.
Well, I will update on these initial thoughts as I continue using this lamp.
Watch the videos and photos I have uploaded for more insight.

Remember! It's God who made our outdoors for us to enjoy, let's take care of it, praise and thank him for his love.
UPDATE 2nd of January 2019
Summary the light still commands my linking it.
I found that when the light is switched off for extended periods (days and weeks), the remote control wouldn't turn the lamp on anymore, THIS IS NOT A FAULT the system just went into a sleep mode.
You will have to bring the system out off the sleep mode by the switch on the lamp itself after that, the remote control will start responding again as normal.
I have virtually put this lamp through some rough usage and it wouldn't give up. I have used it in a lite rain then forgot it outside my tent on, I was very well blown away when I woke up in the morning and found the light was STILL ON even with the night dew covering the entire light were it hung.
Now that shows I did buy a very good light.
I will order some more so my wife will have hers and I get to have one to my self.
By the way, today being the 2nd of January 2019, I wish you a very blessed year ahead when ever it is you are reading this.
Thanks for reading and God bless!
UPDATE 31tst May 2020
I hope you read this in peace amidst the covid-19 pandemic, or as a survivor after it has left us in peace.
Nothing much to add but to say my pear light is still going strong. The burn time hasn't diminished significantly. I would estimate 7 to 10% less burn time.
During some power outage in my home. While I used it I unfortunately droped the light from a one storey building (by mistake that is). The white plastic cover cracked but it is still functional. I think I lost its waterproofing due to the hairline crack. Well, it still works but now I keep it well away from water.
I am particularly surprised that the battery still holds its charge long enough well over two years of relatively constant use.
Just buy one, if you haven't already; you will be glad you did.
Remain safe in God's cover!
He will never fail, but can he say the same about us? mmn?
