Recent Fuel-Burning Lantern Reviews

Primus EasyLight

rated 5 of 5 stars I used this lantern in Glacier for many backpacking trips. I was wondering if anyone knows what size the seals that are in the housing that screws onto the tank. Mine seem to be worn out and I need to replace them. I have called Primus but they sent me the wrong seals. If anyone knows the the size please list it. I have a good hardware store with an abundant supply of seals.-( o-rings ). Love them used in all my backpacking trips. Fits into pack well and is protected by plastic case. Full review

UCO Original Candle Lantern

rated 5 of 5 stars Has anyone or have you read of anyone burning a tent down with one of these? Has anyone or have you read of anyone burning a tent down with one of these? If it did happen it would not still be on the market. They have pretty much ended the life of the Mini gas lantern from Snow Peak, Primus, and others. You don't see them being sold in camp stores anymore, not even the double tie mantles. As LED has taken over, yes, headlamps are a must, but that soulless alien light just bugs me. I have had mine… Full review

UCO Original Candle Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a multipurpose light cheaper than batteries and great for keeping condensation down in the tent. Love this light. Have three of them now. Never go without it. Full review

Coleman Northstar InstaStart Propane Lantern

rated 4 of 5 stars Wow, a lot of light! I received this lantern as a gift, and am happy to have it. The light from this model is superlative compared to other Coleman products, and will really brighten up your campsite.  The piezo ignition is wonderful, and I won't buy another lantern without it. Having said that, when using it the first time, it was slow to ignite, resulting in a partial blow out of the mantle. No problems with the ignition system since, so perhaps there was a breaking-in that had to occur. Try… Full review

Coleman 2 Mantle Dual Fuel Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Don't abandon the idea of liquid fueled lanterns just yet! A neighbor offered me some broken down Coleman lanterns to cannibalize for parts for our Boy Scout Troop's propane versions. One of the lanterns was largely intact,  and when I found that standard mantles worked in this older version, I decided to give it a try just to burn out the old white gas in the tank.  This dual-fuel lantern (white gas and gasoline,) fired right up. As it happened, it burned side-by-side with a new Coleman propane… Full review

Coleman 2 Mantle Propane Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Works great. Lasts long. It's a great product. It does exactly what it says it will. Reliable. I would buy it again. Full review

UCO Micro Candle Lantern

rated 2.5 of 5 stars I didn't expect much, but this lantern still disappointed me. I own an UCO led lantern and think it is an excellent product. I own an UCO Original candle lantern and it is a pretty good piece of kit. So with this tiny lantern we have an unreliable slide mechanism, cheap materials, and minimal light output. UCO, what were you thinking? I got nothin' here. Full review

UCO Original Candle Lantern

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Nice ambiance, but a headlamp outshines it without the fire risk. I've had one since 1997. Used it a few times on backpack trips. Gives OK light output, but not focused, and not super bright. It's only one candle after all. I stopped using it once the ultra-small headlamps came out. Why use a candle when you can have focused, brighter light and an extra set of batteries takes up less space and weight? Plus, I was always a little nervous with a flame inside a nylon tent. Full review

Primus EasyLight

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The only reason I can't give the Primus Easylight a perfect score is because they're so expensive. Other than that they are incredibly well built and the travel boxes make transporting them 100% worry free. The mantles are light years better than any other brands. I've been using the same mantle for years and amazingly they never fall apart. I love them, and am very happy that I was forced into buying them during a storm that had emptied the shelves of everything but. Now that I've got them, I'd… Full review
