Recent Battery-Powered Lantern Reviews

Goal Zero Lighthouse Mini

rated 5 of 5 stars Versatile light and power source, especially for emergencies and power failures. Not my first choice for backpacking where a headlamp is preferable. I have used these lanterns during routine power outages and also during a recent hurried home evacuation. They served very capably. I have also used on a two-week field project, camping in the back country where the USB charging worked quite well. I also like the high capacity "no brainer" replaceable batteries. You can insert either end of the battery… Full review

Goal Zero Lighthouse Mini

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A compact, lightweight, and versatile camp lantern suitable for short-to-medium length backpacking trips. What weighs 8 ounces, fits in the palm of your hand, throws enough light for cooking and reading, and will burn for hundreds of hours? Not so many years ago the only thing that would meet those specs would have been an old-fashioned candle lantern (with some extra candles), and the cooking and reading part might require some close maneuvering. But nowadays there might be a few contenders for… Full review

MPowerd Luci EMRG

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The LUCI solar light is a small, lightweight LED flashlight/lantern that is powered by the sun. It's fully rechargeable and never needs batteries. I know other reviewers have covered this topic, but I have put together a video review to show you some of its features. Here is my video review featuring two models of the LUCI Solar light...the Original and the EMRG. Full review

Snow Peak Mini Hozuki

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Small, lightweight tent lantern. Picked up a few years ago after a "Gear of the Year" nod from an outdoor publication. Pretty happy with its size and light. The magnetic clip is great for attaching in a tent, giving a decent glow without being overly bright.  Perfect for folks who like to read, journal, or play games in the later hours.   Think I paid $40 for it new, which is kinda pricey, all things considered. Continue to use. Only replaced batteries once after 15 or so nights of use. Full review

UCO Pika 3-in-1 Rechargeable Lantern

rated 5 of 5 stars I love my Pika lantern, which I use in both flashlight and lantern mode. It is a small, lightweight, and dependable light for use in camping, or as an emergency light. It is easily re-charged, and also can be used to charge other devices. I have used this reliable light for two years on frequent canoe camping and winter cabin camping trips, and would definitely recommend it to others. While on a recent solo canoe camping trip, I had to pack up my gear in the pre-dawn hours, while a steady rain was… Full review

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
