Coleman Premium Powerhouse Dual Fuel Lantern

If you understand how to operate any Coleman pump style stove or lantern you will have no problem operating this lantern. And the potential for saving money on fuel is substantial. I highly recomend it. When I first received my new lantern I tested it out at home using unleaded automotive fuel. Mantle setup and pumping are just like all other Coleman lanterns regardless of vintage. To light, I set the valve at low to ignite the mantles and allowed the generator to warm for around 20 seconds. (If… Full review

Ozark Trail Propane Lantern

Great light! Just as good as a Coleman and really satisfied with it, but disturbed the globe isn't better. Wish I could find a globe. Mine broke first time I used it from heat. Great light and would recommend it. Bright and wide beam, but wish I could find parts. Full review

Coleman 229 Exponent Dual-Fuel Lantern

Since the 229 is no longer produced, this review is mostly for information purposes. The 229 came on the scene in the early 1990s and its usefulness was almost doomed from the start as rapid improvements in battery lights was coming fast behind the 229 gas lantern. Today's LED lights are so much more efficient, powerful, smaller, lighter, and cheaper. I still love the liquid gas lanterns for their nostalgia and the ambiance and warm heat that is familiar to my childhood years of camping with Dad… Full review

Ozark Trail Two-Mantle Propane Lantern

DANGEROUS PRODUCT!!! I purchased this lantern yesterday. Set it up accordingly with new mantles, etc. Overnight the gas leaked out of the gas cylinder (that is VERY strange). This morning, put in a new cylinder, burned it for half hour, turned it off to cool, came back in half an hour and you can hear the GAS LEAKING from the lantern body. DO NOT BUY THIS MODEL!!! LIFE THREATENING PRODUCT!! DO NOT USE IT!!! Besides the gas leak, the propane bottle sticks so hard in the plastic base, it is impossible… Full review

Snow Peak GigaPower Lantern, Auto

The Snow Peak GL-100A is a brilliantly designed gas lantern. This is a compact and lightweight lantern that puts out a lot of light for its size. It's simple to use. It uses widely available isobutane/propane canisters that are used by most compact backpacking stoves. I'm on my second GL-100A. I bought the first one in 2009 when they were plentiful. It was great for car camping and backpacking. I kept it in the back of my Cherokee along with other compact camping gear for those instances when I… Full review

Primus EasyLight

This lantern is bright and light and as the name says, easy to use. As members of another website, we’ve been testing out this product for the past couple of weeks in exchange for a review. While preparing for a week-long backcountry adventure in the Shenandoahs last week, we were running behind with our packing and used this lantern to light up our campsite as we stuffed the last few bags of food and gear.What we like about this product: Lightweight and compact. Gives off a great amount of light… Full review

UCO Micro Candle Lantern

I like candlelights for the coziness, but both of the ones I had caught fire with a 5" large flame standing from the lantern. Luckily I caught the fire in time (both times). My thinking is that it was because I used them inside and the lack of wind makes them overheat. Full review

UCO Micro Candle Lantern

If you like the warmth of a flame and the safety of a candle lantern, this smallest of all does the job. There are construction problems, but it does burn dependably for about five hours for around a nickel. This smallest of all the candle lanterns does have its issues.  The flimsy construction of the struts holding up the glass chimney means that it rarely stays fully extended and straight up when stood on the base, rather than hung. It also does not use the ingenuous spring fed mechanism of the… Full review
