Princeton Tec Apex

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This headlamp is a good buy. It works very well for night hiking and navigation. The spot beam is useful for route finding, and the flood is very nice. The spot beam on this headlamp has a really good range, about 300' or so, and is plenty bright enough to navigate at night. It does drain the batteries though, and can use them up in about an hour, so I only use the spot when I need to see something far away. For the rest of the time, the flood is almost perfect on this light, and does nicely. Usually,… Full review

Coleman Exponent 4AA Pack-Away Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Compact light with a punch. If you're looking for a small compact light, this won't disappoint you. This small light will perform just as good if not better then some other lights to this size or a bit bigger and it doesn't break the bank. Works great for camping, sitting on the deck, power outages, etc. I own several of these little guys cause several of these going at once makes terrific lighting. Totally recommend this product.

BioLite KettleCharge

rated 5 of 5 stars A kettle with a built-in thermoelectric generator that can charge USB-powered devices off-grid. Heat water, get a charge. A superb option for emergency use during power outages and something to consider for multi-day basecamp expeditions, but likely too much weight to justify its presence on most backpacking trips. Check out my video review: Full review

Fenix CL20

rated 5 of 5 stars My favorite camping lantern. Watch my review! Have fun. Full review

BLKBOX Portable Solar Charger

rated 1 of 5 stars Not enough capacity to be useful. To even do the little it is capable of it must be sitting properly in relation to the sun — not at all useable when moving. Talk to anyone that knows just a little about solar and they can tell you this is useless junk. It is irresponsible to sell junk like this. A power bank can be useful: I recently carried one 12,000 mah unit on the Inca Trail. Worked great for the 4 days. Full review

BLKBOX Portable Solar Charger

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Quality portable folding solar chargers sold direct via Amazon. Four models available, two models evaluated. Powerbanks also available (not evaluated). Let me preface by saying solar charger wattage ratings are based on Maximum Output on a clear cloudless day at moderate temperatures. In many areas of the world, this is the exception rather than the rule. On average, solar panels produce a fraction of their rated Maximum Output. My suggestion is to learn what input wattage the device(s) you want… Full review

Black Diamond Orbit

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A durable, little lantern that can add sufficient light to a tent or campsite. Good for car campers, kids, and those of us hikers who don't mind a little extra weight in our packs if it means more/extra lighting in camp. Conditions:I’ve been using this for nearly one year in a variety of cool (40-60°F) and warm weather (60-80°F) overnight trips, both car-camping and backpacking. It’s been exposed to wet (both humidity and rain) conditions with no ill effect, but never immersed in water. I’ve… Full review

Petzl MYO 5

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Though heavy by today's standards, this headlamp lasts forever and never breaks. I have been using this lamp for 4 years now. I have a lighter lamp but I keep going back to the Myo. The 5 LED setting lasts an extremely long time. I change the batteries out maybe 3 times a year and use it for night hikes at least once a month and I use it at home all the time. The 4 AA batteries can power the small LEDs forever. The halogen setting draws a lot of energy and is only good for about 4 hours or so. I'm… Full review

FlameStower Heat Charger

rated 1 of 5 stars The Flamestower’s technology is tried and true at this point in time. However, the product itself could use some design changes. With the Flamestower you will be able to charge most small electronic devices with the majority of backpacking and camp stoves on the market, as well as with a small camp fire. Due to the nature of the Flamestower’s design, it may become damaged but still operable (for how long?) during normal use. As much as I wanted to like this product, I do not think I could recommend… Full review
