I have the three candle unit and carry it in my camp box. It is portable enough to carry in a backpack. I prefer the three burner unit. I have the case that protects it when camping. It puts out enough light at night to read if you really need it. However, the light is just enough to see and work with and has the nice soft glow of candlelight. Better, it is easy to light and place my coffee cup on in the morning to heat my water for coffee in the morning while I use my gas stove to cook. Better yet, it keeps the coffee warm (hot chocolate too) while cooking. I also use them outside; they give a nice light for sitting outside at night. I keep it handy at all times.

The single drawback is that in a hot climate, unless the candles are in the unit, they will soften. So, you need to make certain you have it loaded and don't bother carrying extra candles when hot.

I am smitten with my Candlelier, it's fantastic for car camping, renting a lookout tower and for around home. However it is much too big and bulky to backpack with and besides you do not need that much light in a small tent.

I also love that you can boil water with it. A mini espresso maker works great on top, I bought a reflector for it which is ok and a neoprene protective case (spendy).

But the Candlelier has a special place in my heart, many wonderful nights have been romantically illuminated by it.

It is excellent in all respects. Light weight, burns in winds without candle problems. Easy to change candles, consistent light. The only problem I have is I broke the glass window when I forgot to tie down cupboard door in the trailer this spring.
