BioLite SiteLight XL

rated 5 of 5 stars Great globe light for basecamp. I pair mine with an Anker PowerCore 26800 and Anker PowerPort Solar for a total solution. For a bonus, add BioLite SiteLight Mini.  Full review

Ozark Trail LED Rechargeable Lantern

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Used unit 3-4 times camping. Bright adjustable light. Unfortunately, the unit will not recharge. Would not recommend the unit for this reason. Full review

Ozark Trail LED Rechargeable Lantern

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I've bought more Ozark products and they're cheaply made also. This lantern lasted five charges, now won't hold a charge.  Wasted money on an Ozark tent, poles bent first time using it.  Ozark products are cheap garbage. Spend a little more and go Coleman. Full review

Black Diamond Orbit

rated 3.5 of 5 stars It's lightweight and small. Puts out good light for cooking or reading at night. I like it. It fits my needs if I ever use it that often. I usually use the Snow Peak Giga lamp knockoff that is four times brighter, but it also uses a canister to fuel it and mantles that are getting harder to find. I still use a UCO Candle Lantern when it's cold in my tent, so I am still an analog light person. I bought a box load of camping gear at a thrift store for $5. Had an MSR DragonFly stove a SweetWater filter… Full review

Black Diamond Moji XP

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Works excellent when hanging. Best for car camping. This review is for the 2016 150-lumen Moji XP. I really like aspects of the Moji XP. It is elegantly simple. It seems very sturdy and well made. The light tint leans yellow instead of blue. But due to some flaws it is not an ideal lantern. Hanging above a picnic table the Moji XP it is excellent. The light output is bright enough to comfortably light a table. The warm even light is ideal for eating a late meal. The lantern is not bright enough… Full review

Black Diamond Voyager

rated 4 of 5 stars Compact and effective. Happy with it. UPDATE WITH PHOTOS:  I snapped a few photos while using my Voyager on a second trip. The Voyager compared to a 12-ounce US beer can. The Voyager illuminating a 10' x 10' tent. ---------- Below is my original review from a 2017 trip. My Voyager is a 2016 model with 140 lumen output from the lantern portion. I hung it beneath a dining fly above a picnic table. I was in a car camping environment for a long weekend.  The light works great hanging above a table,… Full review

Goal Zero Lighthouse Mini Lantern

rated 5 of 5 stars Versatile light and power source, especially for emergencies and power failures. Not my first choice for backpacking where a headlamp is preferable. I have used these lanterns during routine power outages and also during a recent hurried home evacuation. They served very capably. I have also used on a two-week field project, camping in the back country where the USB charging worked quite well. I also like the high capacity "no brainer" replaceable batteries. You can insert either end of the battery… Full review

Goal Zero Lighthouse Mini Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A compact, lightweight, and versatile camp lantern suitable for short-to-medium length backpacking trips. What weighs 8 ounces, fits in the palm of your hand, throws enough light for cooking and reading, and will burn for hundreds of hours? Not so many years ago the only thing that would meet those specs would have been an old-fashioned candle lantern (with some extra candles), and the cooking and reading part might require some close maneuvering. But nowadays there might be a few contenders for… Full review

MPowerd Luci EMRG

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The LUCI solar light is a small, lightweight LED flashlight/lantern that is powered by the sun. It's fully rechargeable and never needs batteries. I know other reviewers have covered this topic, but I have put together a video review to show you some of its features. Here is my video review featuring two models of the LUCI Solar light...the Original and the EMRG. Full review
