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

UCO Fleece Storage Sack for Candle Lantern

rated 5 of 5 stars UCO Fleece cover for Original Candle lantern These candle lanterns have a glass globe which needs to be protected as they can break. Also, the chain can get caught on other things when it is loose. The fleece cover is a good solution for this as it both provides protection, and packs the chain away. I don’t think the fleece provides quite as much protection as the neoprene Cocoon cover. However the fleece is more flexible in that it also fits the Micro and Mini candle lanterns.  (I know they… Full review

UCO Cocoon

rated 5 of 5 stars Protection for a candle lantern. These candle lanterns have a glass globe which needs to be protected as they can break. Also, the chain can get caught on other things when it is loose. This neoprene cover is a good solution for this as it both provides protection, and packs the chain away. I find it to be more protective than the fleece cover, but not as flexible. Full review

UCO Pac-Flat Reflector

rated 4 of 5 stars I bought this mainly because, surprisingly, once my eyes adjust to the dark, the candle lantern can be rather bright since the light goes out in all directions. I thought this could direct the light down, away from my eyes.  It works well for that.  It is light and packs small.   It is a little fiddly to set up. You have to curve it and put the studs through the corresponding holes on the other half to create the shape, then it slips down over the wire bale. Sometimes, when I get the studs in… Full review

UCO Mini Candle Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Awesome nonelectric light! I bought this as alternative to the Micro because of the potential for the Micro to spill. It doesn’t pack as small as the Micro, but is still smaller and lighter than the regular candle lantern. I like how it uses tea lights, which are super cheap. Because this one can be hung without a large risk of spilling, it is good for reducing condensation in a tent.  Unfortunately, a tea light won’t quite last all night. I generally just set it up, and if I wake in the early… Full review

UCO Side Reflector

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I bought this mainly because, surprisingly, once my eyes adjust to the dark, the candle lantern can be rather bright since the light goes out in all directions. I thought this could direct the light away from my eyes. It works OK for that, but is intended more to direct the light in another direction. (I later got the Pac-Flat Reflector and that works great because it directs the light downward, away from my eyes.) It is pretty easy to use, it just clips on to the side. It does take up a little… Full review

UCO Micro Candle Lantern

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Smaller, but can spill wax. I bought this as alternative to the regular candle lantern because it packs smaller and uses tea lights. Tea lights are super cheap. It is great at that, but unfortunately, it has a big drawback that tea lights liquefy quickly once lit. There are vents at the bottom of the light which will allow molten wax to run out if spilled from the tealight. That is almost certain to happen if the lantern is hung, especially if in a tent to reduce condensation, or moved. Warning:… Full review

UCO Original Candle Lantern

rated 4 of 5 stars Great alternative to electric light. I confess that I have a few of these candle lanterns and have to admit I really like them, even though they are an “old technology” and are heavier and larger than new technologies such as LEDs. They come in multiple colors, however I prefer the plain aluminum to the colored ones, except for the brass.   It seems that you have to buy their candles which are a little expensive, but are of high quality. (I would be hesitant to use substitute candles if I could… Full review
