Recent Battery-Powered Lantern Reviews

Snow Peak Mini Hozuki

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Poor design, outrageous price. This is how I really feel. Snow Peak normally makes some awesome, although normally over the top, gadgets This functions as a light, as long as the batteries are charged and you can figure out how to turn it on. The light is diffused nicely due to the frosted lens over the LED (also the on button) and the frosted silicone shade. It is especially nice when sitting flat on a table or rock, or ground. When you try to hang it, it does not hang straight. The little magnet… Full review

Princeton Tec Helix Backcountry

rated 5 of 5 stars OMG. This thing kicks ass!!!!! This is the coolest light I have ever owned. So many useful ways to use. Can be used with or without the rubber diffuser like a flashlight, or hanging from a tree, or just  sitting on a table. Very bright! Full review

UCO Arka

rated 5 of 5 stars The Uco Arka is a wonderful little lantern to have in your pack—so many uses from a very durable and reliable unit. Works great to charge my cellphone or GPS unit. A very practical light to keep in the house or car. Absolutely love this lantern. So many uses as a light source from lantern, flashlight, nightlight, strobe, red, and emergency use. A big advantage is the ability to charge other devices, which works great.   Three small legs on the base help to stabilize if using on a relative flat… Full review

Coleman Twin LED Lantern

rated 5 of 5 stars Generally, it works very good and is excellent. Lights are very bright and last long enough for nights. I can see more that 20 meters and control of range is good enough for night life when camping and playing. Full review

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
