I didn't expect much, but this lantern still disappointed me.


  • Uses cheap tea lights
  • Throws a tiny amount of light so you don't' go night-blind
  • Did I mention it uses cheap tea lights?


  • Cheaply made
  • Does not open and close smoothly
  • Buy 100 tea lights at Ikea for what UCO gets for only 6.

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.
