UCO Mini Candle Lantern
Price Paid: $9.99
I don't know how I lived without this. For years I lugged around a duel fuel lantern, the fuel, and all the required accessories. Now I carry a couple of these babies at home, backpacking, everywhere. Tea candles are 6 cents apiece and I've had them burn for as long as 4 hours and they have citronella. Put a metal coffee cup on top and keeps coffee warm.

UCO's newest lantern is also their smallest ever. The Micro Lantern is a tealight lantern that also collapses for compact storage just like the Original Candle Lantern. It's perfect for taking along in your backpack as it compacts down to 2.5 inches in height. When you take apart the Micro Lantern to replace the candle, you will find one of its most innovative features hidden in the base is space to store a second tealight candle. This allows you to carry enough tealights for 6-8 hours of light. The Micro Lantern is made with the same high quality as our other candle lanterns, it just happens to be a little lantern with a lot of light! PRODUCT FEATURES: Collapses down to 2.5 in height Lightweight, yet durable, aluminum construction Glass chimney Carrying handle and hanging bail Tealight candle holder Spare tealight candle stores inside base Twist-lock base Tealight candles are widely available and economical Compatible with Leave No Trace ethics Dimensions: 3.5 high x 2.25 diameter, 9cm high x 6cm diameter Closes to: 2.5 high x 2.25 diameter, 6.5cm high x 6cm diameter

The Cocoon is a Patent-pending neoprene stuff sack designed to protect the glass chimneys in a drop of up to 3 feet. It will fit most major brands of candle lanterns. A specially designed vent in the base of the lantern provides cool air to supply the flame with needed oxygen.
