A battery operated portable lantern, turned on only one time, had the inside battery casing melt. Along with the outer jackets of the batteries split and become separate from the core.
The only name on the product is "Utilitech".
It was purchases at Lowes.
I have saved all the batteries and still have the lantern.
This was purchased as a christmas gift to be used in case of a power failure and has been sitting unused since the battery installation.
