Was perusing Coleman's website this morning and see that they offer 3, two-mantle liquid fueled lanterns:
Premium power house, model 3000000946 (1107 lumens)
Power house , model 3000004255 (800 lumens)
Premium, model 3000000923 (861 lumens)

I assume one of these maps to a 295 and the other to 285. Not sure where the 3rd one fits in the picture.
Anyone have any additional clarity on these?

Is one of them a 639 kero?  Or maybe one is offered with a case? Or the north star?

oh never mind on the 639 and North Star. I see you said 2 mantle.

No 639 is separate from my list. All these look alike

Both powerhouses are model 295. I think the Premium one does come with a hard case.

Case included was a different sku. Plus doesn't explain the difference in output.

I believe the first two are for the same Powerhouse.  I was under the impression that Coleman was to allocate resources to fixing their website, but apparently it's not happening very fast, or they will someday make a switch all at once.  The 285 is a fine lantern, but there is no way that a 285 is brighter than a Powerhouse, regardless what the website shows.  I notice that they are still showing two kerosene lanterns, but they only make one.

For sure Coleman doesn’t have there online act together. I remember the thread when they asked Mike at OCP to fill the gap on parts support. I mean what kind of mismanaged  Billon dollar corporation does that🤔. Oh yea it’s the one who does a leveraged buy out of a good family run operation and then runs it’s good name into the ground! Just saying.

Yeah their site is definitely a mess. I think they have a 285,295,639 and the North Star. All the others are duplicates or offered with cases. Their lumens descriptions are definitely messed up.

That helps explain it.  Lanterns and stoves are definitely not Coleman's bread and butter anymore.

Lee,

If Coleman was being well run and very profitable at the time, they wouldn't have been up for sale.  That buyout was a couple of entites ago.  I forget who owns them now.  Newell maybe?

I am no expert and don’t really understand all the in and outs.  But from what I read the company wasn’t for sale. When Sheldon Coleman died  Some how the family did not have a controlling amount of stocks and when they tried to buy them back they were out bid by a big conglomerate. That’s the Basic story Herb Ebendorf told in the book.  But at any rate new Coleman stuff is not the quality of the stuff we collect.  please don’t take this post the wrong way there is definitely financial stuff I don’t understand in that story.
