EnerPlex Jumpr Slate 5K-L

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great battery storage system for all your electronics. 5 milliampere-hour of storage. Super thin design. The EnerPlex Jumpr Slate 5K is a simple to use storage battery with an integrated power plug that can be used to recharge any mini USB compatible device. Measuring  6 5/8 inches by 3 5/8 inches and only 1/4 inch thick the Jumpr Slate weighs just 6.5 ounces. To charge up the battery, plug the supplied power adapter into an outlet and insert the mini USB plug into the Jumpr Slate. Four green… Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bright, small, lightweight, and durable headlamp. Bright, small, lightweight, and durable head lamp I recently purchased this new model of the Black Diamond Spot for a backpacking trip in Europe. I never gave too much thought about headlamps but after having enough of Energizer’s headlamps I decided I did want a reliable (the headband on the Energizer loosens quickly), bright torch I can hike with (without it leaning down while you walk) that will be battery-efficient. This lamp does it ll. I’ve… Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 5 of 5 stars Extremely wide range of brightness settings with the brightest being equivalent to the sun. It would appear that this product has gone through multiple iterations, so I will state up front that I bought mine in January or February 2016 and is the same as that shown on the Black Diamond website in October 2016.  I suppose that this would make it a 2016 model. I have used it for one camping trip and often for tasks around the house that require extra light. I have used the light about every two weeks… Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 1 of 5 stars Battery case lock snapped after literally one minute of use. Overall I did not use the lamp in any outside situation, but it seems flimsy and would not survive long. Full review

Amphipod Swift-Clip Cap Light

rated 4 of 5 stars A featherweight backup for when your lamp/light fails, and a handy gadget to keep in your pocket for days you get to camp late and haven't unpacked your primary headlamp. It won’t light up the world but will get the job done. Summary I picked up the Amphipod Swift Cap Light on a whim to throw in my pocket on short trips where I don’t really need a full backup light or extra batteries. At a half ounce, it is a handy gadget to keep around during those times when you are not sure you will really… Full review

Black Diamond Orbit

rated 4 of 5 stars Black Diamond touts the Orbit as a Double Power LED. I would have to agree. With the touch of the selector switch you go from a 105-lumen lantern to 50-lumen flashlight. You also have the option on output. I find it versatile. You will find it will offset the use of your headlamp in camp. It's just easy to add to your pack. Construction: The housing is plastic to include the frosted globe. The switch selector is rubber and can  be engaged while wearing gloves. The feet and bottom of the housing… 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

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
