Which one do you own the 12, 17 3/4 or the 24" ? The DPT Chimera bulb works great, VERY BRIGHT.
I use it alot. Works great as a key(flagged off) or as fill. Have you tried gelling yours?

These are fine for the people who don't wish to build one for themslves. They work as advertised.

It's a pretty easy DIY. Lanternlock seems somewhat overengineered.

Lanternlocks work very well, much stronger than the flimsy bails that come with Chinese lanterns in the package. The power cord could stand to be longer, but otherwise they are great.
