What Are the Better Models of Camping Lanterns

Jun 18, 2008
When you go camping you don't want to get stuck in the dark so you will agree that camping lanterns are a very essential part of your equipment and they should be on your short list of things to take with you on your trips. When you go shopping for a lantern you will find out that there are a lot of models that you can choose from. A few of them are worth considering and we will take a look at some of them.

One of the best lanterns out there nowadays is the "Brunton Liberty Lantern". It is a small and compact type that is powered by butane and the fact that there are no mantels or glass globes will make climbers and hikers very happy. The price is very low so most people will be able to buy it.

Also from Brunon there is the "Lucy Lantern" which runs on isobutene and is also very compact. A key feature is the electric ignition which is fumble-free, it also has a mesh globe which is very durable. The estimated burn time is about 8.5 hours and with 65 watts it has a pretty good brightness rating.

A big name in camping equipment is of course Coleman and a list would not be complete without one of their lanterns and the best from them must be the "Coleman Exponent Lantern". It fits in most back pockets, has a ventilator which will not rust because of the porcelain coating, the fuel tank can resist corrosion then it is also coated and the design has a single mantle, this burns, when on low, for seven hours or, when on high, for three hours under normal circumstances.

It will burn on the clean fuel from Coleman which is more compact then any disposable cartridge. A thing to keep in mind is the fact that a lot of camping stoves run on white fuel, like this lantern, and that makes it a better candidate for becoming your next camping lantern because you will only need one type fuel which will help in keeping your baggage light.

Going on a camping trip is fun and the preparation on itself is fun too, making sure that you have everything that is on you list and thinking if you missed anything that should have been on there but that you forgot. Let's keep from getting frustrated that you are in the dark on the first night of the trip just because you didn't think about taking a lantern with you.

You will find that the prices will vary a lot so don't get the first one you see but browse around a bit until you find one that fits your need and has the right price. How much a lantern costs should not be your main reason for buying one, things like quality, usage and fuel type are more important. Maybe solar energy is an option for you but make sure that you get enough hours of light with one charging by the sun.
