User Review: UCO Original Candle Lantern
Price Paid: $12.95
I would recommend this product for many purposes. It is lightweight, collapsible, small when together, has a built-in carry handle/ chain with hanger, and easy to clean up.
The UCO gives off a usable light source in camp, provides a night-light for children, and gives off just a small enough heat to keep condensation out of the tent.
The candle is rated at nine hours burn time, but in my experiences seven to eight has been the realistic burn time. After the candle has burned completely out, you have to clean off the excess wax from the inside of the tube and glass globe.
I purchased two separate reflectors for the UCO. One put together and placed on top focused the light downward, and the second acted like a parabolic lens and focused light similar to a flashlight.
The complete setup did not weight a whole lot and was very useful while in camp. Saved on batteries too.
Now the UCO comes in several configurations as well. You can visit http://candlelantern.com/ for further specifications and models. I bought mine at the Bass Pro Shop.
