Recent Battery-Powered Lantern Reviews

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

Black Diamond Orbit

rated 5 of 5 stars Bright and compact! I love this little light. Worked great on a canoe trip: hang it from the center tent roof, perfect lighting with ability to dim or brighten. Functions either as lantern or flashlight! Small and compact. It might be heavy for backpackers, but for my outdoor activity, it is great. Takes a bit to figure out the on/off/adjust function but trial and error work, too. Well constructed. I don't think it will break. Collapsible design saves space. A bit pricey for a little light, but… Full review

Coleman LED Micropacker Lantern

rated 4 of 5 stars Great little compact light, durable and lightweight. This is an efficient little light that didn't cost an arm and a leg. Great for your kids who are just starting out in Scouting and want to have their own lantern. It takes 3 AA batteries and can be either a forward facing light or an all around lantern. I find that if left on I can get at most 72 hrs of usable light from this, but honestly who uses their lanterns straight for 72 hours? I like the little hanger at the top so it can be clipped to… Full review

Black Diamond Voyager

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Great features, low output, poor construction. This lantern has all the right ideas, but awkward execution and poor construction keep this lantern from being great. The fasteners for hanging the lantern are great, as is the flashlight mode. The light output is usable, but nothing to write home about. The adjustable brightness is also a great idea, but given that the maximum light output is already low it is not very useful. For the price, I would expect more out of this product. Disclosure: The… Full review

RTG R-PAL

rated 5 of 5 stars For practical everyday scenarios, this device beats a flashlight hands down in every case. The small size and lightweight make it perfect for camping, backpacking, traveling...anything. The adjustable brightness is incredibly useful, as it fits a variety of scenarios. The most importantly thing is that it remembers the brightness level and doesn't require cycling through every setting to get back to the one you left it at. It would be great for emergency kits as well, with the 300 hour runtime being… Full review

Highgear TrailLite Mini

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A small, light, and very efficient addition to our canoe camping equipment arsenal. It is very reasonably priced (we got a great sale price), and has held up over multiple trips. Simple AA battery use makes it easy for us (we carry extras), but the lantern has kept its brightness for a long time. I had seen this lantern at a gear swap (it was new, a vendor item), and was impressed with its size. For canoe camping, small size is preferred. We did have a larger (though still only about 8 inches tall)… Full review

Snow Peak Mini Hozuki

rated 4 of 5 stars It has two modes, standard and candle. The candle mode allows the LED to flicker like a candle, which adds nice ambiance if you are looking for it. You can choose between three brightness settings: low, medium, and high while in either the standard or candle mode. This lantern would be great on backpacking trips or while traveling. I would recommend this lantern for the lightweight backpacker and traveler. This is an awesome little lantern. It's lightweight (3.1 ounces) making it easy to take it… Full review

Goal Zero Lighthouse 250 Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a super lantern for canoe camping or even for car camping. It is very adjustable and can be set from very low lighting to super bright. It is a great little light that you can use to charge up your cell phones or MP3 or almost anything that you may have that can be charged with a USB cable. You can charge it up before your trip from your computer or even plug it in at home in the wall socket or in your car's cigar lighter. And if you need you can use the built-in hand crank or buy an optional… Full review
