UCO Original Candle Lantern Duo kit with LED light.


  • Can reduce condensation in a tent
  • Pleasant light
  • Can use when a campfire is not allowed
  • Adds a small LED light


  • Size and weight is greater compared to LEDs
  • Have to use their candles, which are a little pricey but good quality.
  • Gets hot, so use the chain and be careful!

At one point, they sold the candle lantern as a kit that included a LED light that fits in the bottom of the lantern.  (The light doesn’t go through the lantern, but rather is used more when the unlit lantern is held as if it were a flashlight.) LED light works on coin cells.

The LED light can be used in the lantern or removed and used separately. It has a little clip so it can stand up.  It also comes with an elastic band that can be attached to the LED light, when removed from the bottom of the lantern, and used as a small headlamp. (The current version might not include the elastic band.)

It will reduce condensation in a tent is some circumstances. I think the little bit of heat allows the air to hold more moisture, plus creating a bit of convection.

Warning: As the lantern does get hot, it is important to be careful in a tent as tents can burn! (Hanging it by the chain seems to ensure it hangs low enough.)
