Recent Battery-Powered Lantern Reviews

Northwest Territory Rechargeable Camping Lantern

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bought this lantern to keep in our motorhome and only used it a few times. The next season we went to use it and thought it wouldn't take a charge. So I ordered a new battery ($16), charged it over night and nothing. Would not recommend! For a table top lantern it seemed to put out enough light, but it takes quite a while to charge and didn't hold the charge very long. It does seem to be poorly made/designed and probably not worth buying. Full review

Power Practical Luminoodle

rated 5 of 5 stars Great little device for lighting the campsite. Lots of configurations. I got this for Christmas last year and have used it several times. It goes for hours on a small battery pack like you would use to recharge a phone. The stuff sack is handy and it comes with some reusable locking ties. Nice spool to hold it also. The only thing I'd change is to put a dimmer switch on it. Full review

Nite Ize MoonLit LED Micro Lantern

rated 5 of 5 stars I use this on the trail when the weather makes it dim. I also hang in at least two corners of my tent. Useful for the needs at night when you don't want a full light that may wake your campmates. Because I use a in tent tinkle jar, this is a must for proper lighting for the necessary!! Also can be useful in very dark areas at night to guide where perimeter, tarp, and tent lines are. I even use these great little lights for night walks and hikes. Full review

Nite Ize MoonLit LED Micro Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars With very little modification, this has become my "go to" light source. Over the years I've found that I'm needing less and less light when in camp. I don't backpack in the dark, so a bright light isn't needed...just something to allow me to find things in my tent on moonless nights or to get me far enough away from camp in the middle of the night when nature calls. I've gone from carrying a 5-D cell Maglite and 2-D cell cheapo backup flashlights when I was a kid, to smaller flashlights, to fewer… Full review

Suaoki Solar Panel Foldable LED Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Suaoki solar powered lantern is so versatile because you can use the lantern as a flashlight, a tent light, and light on a stand and so much more. Also I like that it has solar panels to charge it during the day, but it also had a USB port to charge it with shore power or a battery bank. When I first received the Suaoki solar lantern, I was expecting it to be bigger than it actually was. I guess I was comparing it to the size of a regular camping lantern. This lantern has 3 solar panels on each… Full review

Gear Aid ARC LED Light & Power Station

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Sturdy, reliable, and rechargeable. The ARC is both a light and a power source that has come in handy in a wide variety of scenarios. Conditions I’ve used the Gear Aid ARC Rechargeable LED Light and Power Station ("ARC" from here on out) for three consecutive months in the autumn and winter in the mountain region of central Pennsylvania. As a light source, the ARC has been used in a wide variety of scenarios including in a tent as lantern; in the woods to help gather kindling; around a picnic… Full review

ThorFire LED Camping Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars My all time favorite camping lantern/flashlight. I'm an overnight backpacker and have used many types of lanterns and flashlights over the years and this by far is my favorite. It has two settings and I find the lowest setting gives me all the light I need when out in the middle of nowhere on a dark night. It's pretty lightweight and doubles as a very good flashlight as well. Since the battery is internal, I don't have to worry about carrying spare batteries with me on my trips. Right out of the… Full review

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
