Recent Battery-Powered Lantern Reviews

LuminAID Packlite 12

rated 5 of 5 stars Handy solar charged lantern for backpacking or car camping. Easy to clip on a backpack for travel or in a tent for reading. This was a gift, and has ended up being a take everywhere lantern. It lives on my vehicle dashboard for constant solar charging until I strap it onto my backpack to hang in my tent in the backcountry. It has three strengths of light lasting between six and twelve hours on a full charge, and a flashing light lasting up to thirty two hours on a full charge. At 3.2 ounces, the… Full review

Black Diamond Orbit

rated 4 of 5 stars Black Diamond touts the Orbit as a Double Power LED. I would have to agree. With the touch of the selector switch you go from a 105-lumen lantern to 50-lumen flashlight. You also have the option on output. I find it versatile. You will find it will offset the use of your headlamp in camp. It's just easy to add to your pack. Construction: The housing is plastic to include the frosted globe. The switch selector is rubber and can  be engaged while wearing gloves. The feet and bottom of the housing… Full review

UCO Cocoon

rated 5 of 5 stars Protection for a candle lantern. These candle lanterns have a glass globe which needs to be protected as they can break. Also, the chain can get caught on other things when it is loose. This neoprene cover is a good solution for this as it both provides protection, and packs the chain away. I find it to be more protective than the fleece cover, but not as flexible. Full review

UCO Leschi Lantern + Flashlight

rated 4 of 5 stars This small, lightweight, bright flashlight easily converts to a lantern. It's perfect for camping or backpacking. The UCO Leschi is a bright flashlight in a small package, making it ideal for car camping or backpacking. It fits easily in the palm of the hand as a flashlight and the top pops up to make it a small lantern as well. I tested the Uco Leschi light over several backpacking trips this summer, both during car camping at the trailhead and during the backpacking trip itself. I liked how the… Full review

Power Practical Luminoodle

rated 3 of 5 stars I love the flexibility of this light. If it weren't for a major problem I had while on trail, I would have rated it a 5 star. I will say that their customer service was top notch and they stood behind their product. The "Luminoodle" light rope has magnets built into it which make it convenient for hanging on any steel surface. It also comes with some universal ties to hang it on tree limbs, tent poles, etc., and a white bag which you can hang up like a lantern. The rechargeable power pack has a… Full review

BioLite PowerLight Mini

rated 4 of 5 stars Just picked this up and love the flexibility of the product. I don't see this as a replacement for a good headlamp when trekking in darkness and more focussed light is required. However, for a great tent light or travel light, this is fantastic. Adding the capability of a supplementary power source makes it even more versatile. Full review

BioLite PowerLight Mini

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Conclusions: The BioLite Powerlight Mini provides reasonable light for use around camp, with the additional benefit of recharge capacity for a cell phone, inReach, handheld GPSR, or small camera, and at a reasonable price. It is readily recharged with a small solar panel, making a total of just over a pound, which is reasonable for a backpacking trip. Heavy use as a night or hiking light or as a recharging source for frequent cell phone or inReach tracking use may require extra backup battery storage. Full review

Princeton Tec Helix Bluetooth

rated 3 of 5 stars The Princeton Tec Helix Backcountry is a collapsible lantern, which uses a rechargeable lithium ion battery (1800 mAh or 3 AA batteries as a back-up), to boast up to 250 lumens of ambient light. Using Bluetooth technology the lantern can be controlled with your smartphone using the free app (available for both Android and iOS). The Helix Bluetooth would be best for the technology enthusiast whose primary concern is not weight, whether that’s around the cottage, BBQ, festival or car camping. The… Full review

Snow Peak Mini Hozuki

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Poor design, outrageous price. This is how I really feel. Snow Peak normally makes some awesome, although normally over the top, gadgets This functions as a light, as long as the batteries are charged and you can figure out how to turn it on. The light is diffused nicely due to the frosted lens over the LED (also the on button) and the frosted silicone shade. It is especially nice when sitting flat on a table or rock, or ground. When you try to hang it, it does not hang straight. The little magnet… Full review
