Project Lunar Multifunctional Lantern

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2017-01-25

Transform your adventures with the Project Lunar Multifunctional Lantern. This lantern does so much more than provide light; it provides warmth and comfort, too. The Lunar Lantern is versatile to use anywhere, anytime. Set it on the table, hang it from a tree, or even attach it with the built-in magnet. The interchangeable light shade offers more than just one lighting ambience. The lantern has Lantern Mode, Torch Mode, and Compact Mode to suit any adventure. With the adjustment knob, you can dim the light to the exact brightness of your liking with a maximum of 470 lumens. Additionally, you can use the detachable top and side reflector to bounce the light around your space. This allows you to set the scene for any event. In addition, the Lunar Lantern features a built-in rechargeable battery with a USB port for your devices.

Mine arrived today and have just charged it. I only noticed the high frequency noise when I was adjusting the brightness. Overall it looks very nice and I am looking forward to using it more.

Yes, I think most people are experiencing this. I don't think there is any way to fix this other than a re-design of the electrical circuitry.

Anyone else experiencing the high frequency noise? Is there a way to fix this?

GOT IT!
Great little lantern!
Works well and looks good!
Thanks, DACH, for this project and product!

@stanley. Turn the silver hinge from off to on (left to right). Once you do this, then hold down the black rubber on button at the back of the lantern. Once the lantern comes on you can then turn the front hinge to regulate the light from the brightest setting to a dimmer one.

Received my lantern yesterday. I did not receive my string of lights though. Also I have charged the lantern but have been unsuccessful at getting it to light up. Has anybody else experienced this? I was hoping for any input to see if anybody has had the same problem.

Received my Lumar in Seattle today.
Good job on the box. Looks very professional. The plastic tray not so much. Cheap.
Very impressed with the lantern and the attachments.
Everything looks and feels well made. Nice solid construction. Has some weight to it, so it's not going to blow off table if it gets windy.
Have no issues with the lantern making buzzing noises. Gives off plenty of light.
The torch attachment will come in handy, the zoom works smoothly with just a twist. Did notice that the lens is scratched.
On a side note, not sure how you'd be able to do it, but a natural white LED for torch would be ideal.
And let's not forget about the night light. It's perfect. I charged it with a UV light 3 hours ago and it's still glowing strong.
Thanks for putting so much thought into this great product. It was well worth the wait.
Best of luck Team Dash

Upon further testing, it seems like the lantern mode "flickers" at full power- it erratically drops down to the next power level. Something unstable with the PWM circuitry maybe? It also has the same issue at the lowest brightness. Setting the brightness to "2nd highest" or "2nd lowest" makes it stable. This is unfortunate. The electronics design definitely should be reworked for future versions.

Review from Kickstarter
Received my lantern + string lights today! I didn't get any tracking info so this was a surprise. Super excited! ++ Nice style. The colors turned out nice. The finish is good.
+ Nice design. It actually uses 2 LEDs! One for each mode (lantern vs. everything else). Neat.
+ It looks like it's pretty durable and feels durable. Battery meter looks nice.
+ The bayonet accessory coupling is well fitted. It is keyed so things only go in one way.
+ The light output is nice for something this size. The diffuser helps alot. The metal reflector completely blocks out light which is good.
+The LED string lights are great! They are super long and have a pleasant glow. = Yes, the electronics "hums" at certain brightnesses. Coming from someone who used Coleman gas lanterns, I'm not too bothered by it. It almost mimics the gas hiss :D
= The dimmer switch noticeably brightens/darkens at increments. It is not a smooth dim. It doesn't affect normal usage.
= The mode change sensor is a tiny surface mount switch. Hopefully it will not wear out from constant mode switching... - Some minor quality issues. The inside box came ripped because of the taped on custom metal reflector.
- The top lantern reflector is really loose on mine and twists off very easily- need to bend edges slightly to have more friction fit.
- The LED string lights came with a dead LED (amazingly) and some caps popped off. They just need to be glued on. Overall I'm pretty happy with it!

Yes. Received my order today. Looks beautiful and works wonderfully! One of the two lanterns gives a very low sound when in between the lowest and highest setting but this doesn’t happen all the time. But strange but I look forward to using it on the campsite!

Review from Kickstarter
@Creator - I received the limited edition today. It's really a beauty. Feels rigid and solid except for some parts. However, I experienced a problem with the lights. At high, mid or even the lowest settings, I experienced a slightly change of light brightness/dimness at every few random seconds. This is annoying for me because it's taking my attention away from my work desk. This should not be a normal.

Have you fixed the high frequency sound issue?

Review from Kickstarter
@DACH. Thanks for responding. Thanks also for the explanation that you are working on quality issues. I'm assuming you have resolved them given you mention that you have packed half of the international orders. Are you going to put out an update when you complete the international shipping? Are they coming by post or by courier?
Thanks

Review from Kickstarter
Dear Backers and Friends! First of all, We are sincerely sorry about all the delay and late update, because we are just really lack of man power to handle all stuff. (Product feedback from local backers, study rework possibilities, deal with high defect rate etc.) We want to try our best to avoid any known possible defect to show up in the international order, that’s why we spent extra and extra time on it. It is a big BIG challenge for us to take balance between Quality and time. One side, we want to make things good, but another side people’s are waiting and pushing..(honestly, we already spent double the total funded amount to invest from our own pocket into this project, money is not the most concern for us, but you backers satisfaction are! Wish you could kindly understand our situation. (Small quantity, completely new design, limited resources, large scale of production tooling making) And finally, We have packed half of the international order over night yesterday, and the other half hopefully will be completely pack over night tonight too. For backers who already filled all informations to us, will be getting the Lunar real soon for Christmas!! Cheers
DACH

The last time Dach updated was Sept 25. That is almost 3 months ago. They had a website up for pre orders but that now only shows all items out of stock. There were well known HK residents (Patrick Ng) who know these developers and touted the product on their own Instagram pages. We know some backers in Asia received their product with some issues. We were told that the blue, then the red, and finally the grey would be shipped out to backers in that order. We were shown pictures of product testing
and packaging. This project seems to be turning into a bad Alibaba scam purchase

I see that some people are getting their lamps but I have not heard anything. I was supposed to also get a separate strand of lights attached to it. I would appreciate some feedback from the creator. Thank you

@Lunar an update would sure be nice. We have all been pretty patient for a campaign that is 9 months behind schedule.

Cant believe i still havent got my LED till today. May Royce Yu or Nate Chan please at least make up some ridiculous excuses again so we backers can still keep waiting?
Brendan Moylan
Review from Kickstarter
@DACH said that "It is because of the LED brightness control is due to the chips frequency, when the light is in full brightness, the frequency sound is high enough and stay out of the humans hearing spectrum, and when the LED turns dark, the frequency slow down and came to the hearing spectrum. thats why you can not hear the sound when it is in full brightness.
On the other hand, the Lunars outer Shell acted as a resonant box to amplified the sound." Are people still hearing the sound when the lantern is on full brightness?

Review from Kickstarter
Can I send this back and get a normal one that does not make high frequency sound? The product is obviously faulty and you can't just give a failing product to backers who supported you
Brendan Moylan
Review from Kickstarter
@DACH. Can we please get an update on how the reviews and revision are going. Is the intent to ship before Christmas?
Thanks

Review from Kickstarter
The service of this brand is too bad. When I received the product in the Open box at 27 Oct 2017, the product is damaged! I sent the picture to the Dach, but no one answered me. Until I send a message to the public, Dach and reply to the product I received. It is too funny to answer because they are quality check to send customer used products to me! I would like to exchange and I send four days and locations, but they only reply to Nov2017 19:00 at Fo Tan Station Exchange.
The company has no sense of responsibility. For the production of product sales to the quality and handling very sloppy!

Review from Kickstarter
To be honest, the buzzing sound doesn't bother me much. You can barely hear it in a very close proximity. But I agree that DACH should fix it before shipping to international customers to void undermining the reputation of HK products.

Anyone can upload a video of high frequency sound? Just curious about it.
John Frank
Review from Kickstarter
As excited as I am to receive the lantern, if the high frequency issue isn't fixed it's just going to become a very expensive paperweight. This shouldn't be considered "normal conditions" or "well functioning." I hope this can be corrected before international shipments, even if it adds months to the shipping date.

Review from Kickstarter
Hello there. I would propose to fix the high frequency noise first, too, before sending out international orders. I know this is a financial didaster, but how could that slip in QC? I‘m sure your backers wouldn‘t mind to wait some more...

@DACH. Can we please get an update on how your collecting of feedback is going and when you think you will start international shipping?

你哋咁答同政府回應鉛水事件有咩分別?
食水有鉛係因為水喉用左含鉛銲料, 屬正常現象
只要開盡水喉等十分鐘先拎水用就會少啲鉛
而家買盞燈有高頻聲都叫正常?
鴨記幾十蚊買支可調光度LED電筒都無聲喇
你當所有人都係山洞走出嚟第一次見到燈?
件產品第一水出街做得唔好可以理解
但唔好自欺欺人將個問題合理化
而家唔係要你換或者要你賠
只係希望你哋承認問題
將來件產品可以改善做得愈嚟愈好
做好香港出品呢個名

@DACH. Thank you for the update about international shipments. Are you able to supply a date for when international shipping will be complete please?
DACH
Review from Kickstarter
Dear International backers, We had delivered all the Local orders last week, and we collecting different feedbacks from them, we want to review and revise everything before we start to ship worldwide.
Wish you could kindly understand! Thanks

Hello everyone, It is because of the LED brightness control is due to the chips frequency, when the light is in full brightness, the frequency sound is high enough and stay out of the humans hearing spectrum, and when the LED turns dark, the frequency slow down and came to the hearing spectrum. thats why you can not hear the sound when it is in full brightness.
On the other hand, the Lunars outer Shell acted as a resonant box to amplified the sound. No worries, it is on its normal conditions, safe and well functioning. Thanks

Review from Kickstarter
Hello, are u still here?
Can anyone just reply on the issue of high frequency sound?
Apparently it is abnormal, maybe it is design fault, qc or supplier problem, i dont know.
but at least a proper apology could make us feel better.

still waiting on my limited edition lunar. any news??

Review from Kickstarter
Finally got it. Looks nicer than my expectation. Although the high frequency sound when using the lantern sound is quite annoying.
Brendan Moylan
Review from Kickstarter
Did everybody who has received one so far get a tracking email? I haven't received one yet which seems odd as I am assuming all the blue ones have shipped. That assumption is based on the last update (blue first) and the fact that someone has posted a picture of their red one after delivery.

@Cassadee, not in single Lunar package
Cassadee Wong
Review from Kickstarter
i love everything about the light except for the fact that when i turn it on there's this high frequency sound. it's not just only when it's on the brightest. it's every single time when i turn it on!!!!! It's making me very uncomfortable and unable to use it for more than a minute.

Review from Kickstarter
@Gary, it's in the package, right under the plastic holder of the lamp
