Seems way overpriced. It has an output of only 5W and the battery is 4400mAh.
From a quick search on amazon, you can get a waterproof 24W charger for $61: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XBGSS2R/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_dp_T1_1ceuzbR364R18
You can get a 10050mAh battery for $29.99: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06Y58BQ69/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_dp_T1_jmeuzbJKKSPKY
While that would cost you $11 more, you'd get more than twice the battery, almost 5 times the charger output, 2 more usb outputs, and the ability to use quick charge 3.0 on the portable battery. The only con is you wouldn't get a flashlight. If you wanted to save money, you could probably get a non-waterproof charger or get a different battery.
As an aside, a 5W max output wouldn't even be enough to power a tablet. A typical tablet requires 2A at 5V, so you would need 10W.

I'd like to know the Kelvin colour of the lantern and the spotlights.

So the description says nothing about the light, which is presumably included. How about some spec's on it please?

I own a few of the lanterns. They're great. 360 or 180 degree dimmable warm yellow lighting, USB output to charge devices and a port to power light pucks (two types available) externally. A full charge can last you 12+ hours of lighting. Free rubber cover replacements for life from the company as well, you just need to contact them and they'll send you new ones. The flashlight portion is okay, just two standard LEDs that are decently bright but I never use they function. There is a swivel handle that you can use to hold onto the lamp or hang it from branches. I would jump in on this but I already own both the panel (much better than goal zero) and the lantern. Note that it's quite a bit heavy for it's compact size. It houses 2x 18650 batteries inside that are NOT user replaceable, and is made of very dense impact plastic which does make it ridiculously durable. But ultralight backpackers who really focus on the grams will find something like snow peaks little snow flake lanterns might be more portable, albeit significantly less durable and versatile.
