Recent Battery-Powered Lantern Reviews

Ozark Trail LED Rechargeable Lantern

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Had this lantern for four years, and it worked great. Took battery out after each camping trip and recharged for next time, but now battery will not charge up. BUT used it for FOUR years, I say good product. I say good latern for the money. Just hard to find a replacement battery. Full review

Princeton Tec Helix Backcountry

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The Princeton Tec Helix Backcountry is a collapsible lantern, which uses three AAA batteries, to boast up to 150 lumens of ambient light. I’ve found it to be a versatile light as it can be used not just for backcountry camping but also as a backup headlamp, for bike commuting visibility, or as a Leave No Trace campfire alternative. The positives of the light are the battery life, multiple attachment options and the glow in the dark globe, which make it easy to find in the dark. Room for improvement? Full review

Primus Polaris 360

rated 4.5 of 5 stars For those familiar with the Black Diamond Orbit and similar products, the Primus Polaris 360 hybrid flashlight/lantern is a simpler, less expensive, and more intuitive design. I recommend this product to anyone looking for an easily portable backcountry light that will serve multiple functions of use. I love this light! For the most part, I like it more than my Black Diamond Orbit. It is an LED flashlight/lantern hybrid that uses two (2) red diodes, and one (1) high powered white diode, powered… Full review

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
