We found some portable lamps in a warehouse that were never issued to the Italian Military who used these extensively as camp lights.

Super bright, long life, 8", six watt fluorescent Sylvania cool white F6T5/CW tube is protected by a clear lens and produces 270 lumens of light for up to 7500 hours.

Manufactured by O.V.A. the Fluorlux Mec model light has four feet for stability, carrying handle, on off switch, battery indicator light, D-ring for attaching, sure-grip plastic casing and measures 9.5x6.5x3.25".

The lights require eight "D" batteries, not included, and are Green, the box shows an orange lamp.

"This is a very nice, little light that is surprisingly very bright. Great price for a well made product."

"Trying not to be too critical, but I think this light is slightly overpriced for what you get. For sure it's not military grade. It's just not very sturdy. The claimed 270 lumens is probably a stretch for at least the one I bought; doesn't come even close to that output. The plastic construction of the body is OK but nothing to rave about. The lens, however, is very thick and will hold up. The battery compartment drops out in the back and holds eight D cells, is very flimsy in construction, and it wiggles around a little bit inside there once the cover is installed. The four small plastic feet stubs allow it to wobble a little bit, but the whole unit is not very wide anyway. I bought this for power outages at the house, just to have a light I can set on the floor or on furniture, and I didn't want a lantern type construction. I'll say that if used in this type of situation and not in an outdoor, rough camping environment that it's just fine. I can't say how long the batteries will last yet. It does use a common Sylvania bulb that is replaceable, which is good. And another thing I like is that when carrying it, the on/off switch is located in such a way that turning it on and off is very ergonomic. As your hand grasps the handle, your index finger is just naturally right there in place to easily flick it on and off without fiddling with it. Overall, the concept is good; just don't plan on getting a military grade camp light as the description sort of suggests. It's just a little flimsy; that's all. Used for a floor light so the kids can play monopoly in a power outage, it's very good."
