A rechargeable lantern will light up a room, but what about the rest of your house? Rather than stockpiling multiple lamps, get the $55 Coleman Quad Lantern
. Featuring four detachable light panels, each with six bright LEDs, the Quad is four lanterns in one. Each panel has its own on/off switch and recharges on the base, which uses eight D-cell batteries. Also consider the Coleman LED Rechargeable Lantern
($46). Though it doesn’t split into four lights, its rechargeable base means no battery hassles.
