I wanted to share my delight with The Siege® lantern and its unexpected uses I've found. Earlier this week, a drain line from my basement broke which required a hole to be dug in my lawn to access the line. Unfortunately, it was after dark. I looked all over for a light to use and decided to use my trusted Siege lantern. I drove an extra shovel in the ground, tied a short bungee cord around the D-ring and the handle of the shovel and voila...let there be light...and plenty of it. I was out there for a few hours digging and gluing in new line and the light kept on going. I'm still amazed at how long the battery lasts...30/70/295 hours...craziness! Thanks for making a light that you can count on!
