Recent Battery-Powered Lantern Reviews

UCO Clarus

rated 4 of 5 stars Reliable and convenient lantern/flashlight combo. A great value for any backpacker. The UCO Clarus is a convenient little lantern/flashlight. When collapsed it focuses the beam out the front lens for use as a flashlight. When expanded it allows the light to shine out the sides of the frosted globe for use as a lantern. It's powered by 3 AAA batteries and has a high, medium and low brightness level and a strobe mode. It is rugged and water-resistant. This is a great little lantern to hang around… Full review

LuminAID Packlite 12

rated 5 of 5 stars This was hands down the coolest piece in my pack: Super compact, weighing almost nothing, low price, and so much fun to use! I've heard tell of a new model coming soon with a micro USB to charge devices and a more accurate battery indicator. Those improvements would be swell, but this gadget is awesome as it is. Bring it to some hot springs after dark, send it floating with the "Spectra" color gradation model, and prepare to be amazed. Perfect amount of ambient light and I've seen people hiking… Full review

Ultimate Survival Technologies Pico Lantern

rated 4 of 5 stars Light-enough, bright-enough >120 lumen, four AA battery-powered hanging mini-lantern. Get it only if it's cheap. It's a water-resistant, shock-resistant, sturdy, compact, cheap (I got it for $10 from GearTrade.com + shipping) three-mode, battery-powered hanging lantern. It's a good light for what it is. It's great for camping, I routinely use it walking around my house looking for our dogs off sniffing game where I live in the mountains and it's great at throwing out a nice even aura of light… Full review

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 overnight 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
