The Nitecore LA30 is a compact and rechargeable camping lantern, offering 250 lumens of diffused white light in the highest setting and is available in two different colours with a choice of blue or yellow.

It is a Bi-fuel lantern which means it can be powered by either two AA NiMH/alkaline batteries, or using the built-in 1800 mAh lithium-ion battery. The lithium-ion battery is charged using the included USB cable via the micro USB port located on the side of the lantern. Remove the dust cover from the micro USB port and plug the cable into the torch one end and the other end into a computer/laptop or a suitable USB mains/car adaptor (not included).

Charging time is approximately 5 hours and the charging indicator will go red while charging is in progress and turn green once charging is complete. If AA batteries are installed in the lantern, they will not be affected by the charging of the lantern and can be safely left inside. The lantern can still be used while charging is in progress.

Utilising eight high CRI LEDs (CRI ≥ 90) the LA30 has an extreme colour rendering capability with the light profile resembling natural sunlight and therefore reducing eye strain while providing a vibrant and detailed view of objects. The lantern also features three red LEDs that offer four different functions. Red light preserves your night vision, making it useful for tasks such as night reading, astronomy and animal spotting and the flash setting is good for attracting attention.

A single push button on the front of the lantern controls all the functions. Press and hold the button for 0.6 seconds to turn the white light on in low and then press to cycle through low, mid and high. Direct access to high from off is achieved by continuing to hold the button down after it has entered low mode and it will then enter high mode and the button can be released. When the light is off, double press the button to activate the red light in low and then press to cycle through red low, red high, red beacon and red SOS. Press and hold the button for 0.6 seconds to turn the light off in any mode.

The LA30 features a positioning indicator, that can be turned on or off, so you can easily locate the lantern in the dark. To activate the position indicator press and hold the button for 3 seconds while the light is on and then the main light will turn off and the red indicator will blink once every two seconds. Turning the light on will turn the indicator off.

A red power indicator shows remaining battery power when you press the button once while the light is off. Three flashes indicates above 50% power, two flashes indicates below 50% power and one flash indicates below 10% power. The advanced temperature regulation module allows the LA30 to regulate its output and adapt to the ambient environment to maintain optimal performance.

The base of the lantern incorporates a powerful magnet, allowing you to attach the LA30 to metal surfaces for hands free use, or using the metal hook that is stowed underneath the lantern it can be hung from a range of places.
