It comes with a rechargeable 3.7V 4Ah Lithium-ion battery, a USB cable and a wall charger. The lantern is 7.7 inches tall and 2.5 inches in diameter. It collapses to 5.25 inches tall when closed. “UCO” and an image of a flame are printed in red on the base.

There are two USB ports (USB-A and USB-mini) under recessed caps on the base of the lantern, just above the red ring at the bottom. The wall charger is a one-inch black plastic cube with a white-faced plug. Model number “A1265”is printed above the plug’s prongs and a small green dot appears below on the lower corner.

According to the CPSC, the recalled Lantern’s wall charger plug can fail during normal use and pose a fire hazard.

About Egg Allergies:
For some people, foods made from egg (or egg ingredients) may not necessarily sound as if they are derived from these products. Examples of foods with hidden egg include ingredients such as “albumin”, “binder”, “emulsifier” or “lecithin”. These components (and many more) are likely derived from egg protein and thus can cause serious allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to egg ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center.

If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.

You can learn more about food allergies from the US National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) at http://1.usa.gov/IZWUlm.
