UCO Micro Candle Lantern

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I like candlelights for the coziness, but both of the ones I had caught fire with a 5" large flame standing from the lantern. Luckily I caught the fire in time (both times). My thinking is that it was because I used them inside and the lack of wind makes them overheat. Full review

Ozark Trail Propane Lantern

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bad on and off valve. After lighting the lantern, I could not turn the lantern off. Dangerous Full review

UCO Micro Candle Lantern

rated 3 of 5 stars If you like the warmth of a flame and the safety of a candle lantern, this smallest of all does the job. There are construction problems, but it does burn dependably for about five hours for around a nickel. This smallest of all the candle lanterns does have its issues.  The flimsy construction of the struts holding up the glass chimney means that it rarely stays fully extended and straight up when stood on the base, rather than hung. It also does not use the ingenuous spring fed mechanism of the… Full review

UCO Original Candle Lantern

rated 5 of 5 stars Ingenious solution to the problem of darkness. I love these things and have used them for over thirty years. They give a warm glow that just says "Home", especially when trying to find one's way back to the tent on a dark and misty or rainy night.  The one I use for backpacking is the original aluminum one, with the fleece stuff sack to protect it. For car camping, I use the slightly heavier metal ones that REI and UCO sell now. They're much more civilized than the ultra-loud lights favored by… Full review

Primus Micron Lantern

rated 5 of 5 stars An ingenious twist on a small, lightweight, functional fuel-powered backpacking lantern! The Primus Micron Lantern - Steel Mesh is a durable option for backcountry illumination. The Primus Micron Lantern - Steel Mesh is a great lightweight option for backcountry hikers seeking more illumination. As a member of another website, on occasion I am given products to test and evaluate in exchange for a review. The Primus Micron Lantern - Steel Mesh falls into that category.  I recently had opportunity… Full review

Primus Micron Lantern

rated 4 of 5 stars Light, compact, great lil unit. It was bright enough to light up under an awning. My only concern was this was not a fast setup device. You have to burn the mantle until it's all white which can take a few minutes. Definitely start assembly before it gets dark if this is your only means of light for the night. The mantle appears to be brittle after use and I'm not sure it will withstand being in my hiking pack for another trip. Overall it is great for heat and light and is light enough to pack in… Full review

UCO Original Candle Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I carried one of these (as well as other candle lanterns) for years, then... Once upon a time I never went into the woods for an overnight without a candle lantern of one kind or another. I probably had five or so different makes and models. They still lurk in my gear storage. This is one of the better ones, maybe the best one. For example, this lantern gives nearly 360 degree light as many do not. Still, all candle lanterns have problems and this is no exception. There is potential for spilled… Full review

Generic vintage candle lantern

rated 2.5 of 5 stars The UCO candle lanterns are high quality and I don’t see similar ones made by other companies for sale now. However historically there were all types of candle lanterns. This one I found in a box of camping gear at a garage sale and probably dates to the '70s. It is made from thin aluminum, and the glass globe just slides up (kind of odd glass, perhaps it melted a little at some point?). Still, it works OK. I have tried tea lights in it and they work OK, but are a little dim. It seems to work… Full review

UCO Original Candle Lantern + LED

rated 4 of 5 stars UCO Original Candle Lantern Duo kit with LED light. At one point, they sold the candle lantern as a kit that included a LED light that fits in the bottom of the lantern.  (The light doesn’t go through the lantern, but rather is used more when the unlit lantern is held as if it were a flashlight.) LED light works on coin cells. The LED light can be used in the lantern or removed and used separately. It has a little clip so it can stand up.  It also comes with an elastic band that can be attached… Full review
