Recent Battery-Powered Lantern Reviews

BioLite PowerLight Mini

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Conclusions: The BioLite Powerlight Mini provides reasonable light for use around camp, with the additional benefit of recharge capacity for a cell phone, inReach, handheld GPSR, or small camera, and at a reasonable price. It is readily recharged with a small solar panel, making a total of just over a pound, which is reasonable for a backpacking trip. Heavy use as a night or hiking light or as a recharging source for frequent cell phone or inReach tracking use may require extra backup battery storage. Full review

Princeton Tec Helix Bluetooth

rated 3 of 5 stars The Princeton Tec Helix Backcountry is a collapsible lantern, which uses a rechargeable lithium ion battery (1800 mAh or 3 AA batteries as a back-up), to boast up to 250 lumens of ambient light. Using Bluetooth technology the lantern can be controlled with your smartphone using the free app (available for both Android and iOS). The Helix Bluetooth would be best for the technology enthusiast whose primary concern is not weight, whether that’s around the cottage, BBQ, festival or car camping. The… Full review

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
