Recent Battery-Powered Lantern Reviews

UCO Clarus

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Great little lantern for camping, backpacking, and bike touring. I purchased this lantern for a bike tour, but used it for multiple festivals, camping trips, and backpacking adventures. To be fair, I loved using this light while it worked. I have many products that use AAA batteries, so replacing them with fully charged batteries was taken care of the night before leaving. I rarely used the light in the rain, so I'm not sure how it behaves. The plastic is very durable. I could use this light for… Full review

MPowerd Luci EMRG

rated 4 of 5 stars High quality, and Luci stands behind its products. Saw this in my local outdoor retailer (Outdoor Trails, Daleville), and couldn't resist. Two steady power settings— one flashing white and one flashing SOS in alternate white or red—and in a smaller package the the original Luci. The frosted sides makes for a nice light; the original Luci light was a little harsh. It provides good illumination up to about 20' on low, 30' on high. The clear bottom allows it to be used somewhat directionally, like… Full review

Coleman Exponent 4AA Pack-Away Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Compact light with a punch. If you're looking for a small compact light, this won't disappoint you. This small light will perform just as good if not better then some other lights to this size or a bit bigger and it doesn't break the bank. Works great for camping, sitting on the deck, power outages, etc. I own several of these little guys cause several of these going at once makes terrific lighting. Totally recommend this product.

Fenix CL20

rated 5 of 5 stars My favorite camping lantern. Watch my review! Have fun. Full review

Black Diamond Orbit

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A durable, little lantern that can add sufficient light to a tent or campsite. Good for car campers, kids, and those of us hikers who don't mind a little extra weight in our packs if it means more/extra lighting in camp. Conditions:I’ve been using this for nearly one year in a variety of cool (40-60°F) and warm weather (60-80°F) overnight trips, both car-camping and backpacking. It’s been exposed to wet (both humidity and rain) conditions with no ill effect, but never immersed in water. I’ve… Full review

Black Diamond Orbit

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great little backpacking light. Small but powerful. My initial impressions upon taking the lantern out of the box was "IT'S SO TINY". I almost was disappointed by its size thinking it would be useless. BOY WAS I WRONG! Once I put the batteries in and tested it out I was surprised by the amount of light given off. This is a great little lantern. It is very compact, I love the way the globe collapses down onto the base which makes this even smaller for when it comes time to put it away.   I tested… Full review

Mammut Ambient Light Dry Bag

rated 5 of 5 stars Dry bag that transforms into lantern. This translucent dry bag is pretty simple, except for a small sleeve in its base. This sleeve allows you to place a headlamp in the base which lights up the translucent material turning it into a effective lantern.  You can clip it inside your tent, or hang it anywhere. It works really well and is much better then a headlamp for getting changed inside a tent, or anything of the like.  Full review

Ozark Trail Fluorescent Camping Lantern

rated 0.5 of 5 stars This is a complete waste of money! Only used a few times and won't work properly. Tried new batteries and spent $13 buying a new bulb on Ebay! I should've read reviews on this! And wish I could complain directly to the company! Will NEVER purchase another one of their products! Full review

Highgear TrailLite Mini

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A good value for a rugged lantern that is in the middle of the pack in terms of built-in features, battery life, and brightness. I would recommend this lantern for anyone who goes on trips in groups of three or more. It won't replace the headlamp in your pack, but I find it to be useful and affordable supplemental lighting. I picked up the identical Eddie Bauer-branded version of the Highgear TrailLite Mini two years ago on a whim, and so far it has performed up to my expectations, considering the… Full review
