The Beacon is a GREAT, very small, simple lantern! It uses the same batteries as Goal Zero Products (A dual polarity 18650 battery) and it charges in a snap!! Battery can be changed and extras can be purchased!! The USB cable is built in which makes it very simple to charge anywhere! No need or no worries about forgetting your cable or even bringing it with you. Quality is outstanding and this sucker is VERY BRIGHT!!! I would recommend this to anyone needing a simple light outdoors!!
1.) Remember, this doesn’t take NORMAL 18650 batteries.. It takes the Goal Zero version that is dual polarity! Search Goal Zero 18650 to find them
