5.0 out of 5 stars Great lantern! Excellent quality! March 20 2013
By Mr. X
Color Name:Red|Verified Purchase
Awesome lantern, I've put one through some testing and ended up buying 3 of them! (for both cars and the house). Built like a little tank and it can mean the difference between life & death in many situations, including as a part of your hiking/camping kit or a car emergency kit. The ability to keep a warming flame lit in almost any adverse conditions is gold.

I've tested this unit in a large SUV in Canadian winter temperatures (-15 C) for a couple of hours (approx. 4 in total) with the engine off and the candle actually kept an acceptable temperature inside the cab the whole time. Not comfortable by any means... but definitely survivable (as a last ditch solution). The folding small-format is a bonus too, as it will fit almost anywhere. And the lanterns all come with one 9-hour candle already installed, by the way.

Tip: Get the cocoon accessory too while you're at it. I got two of them on sale at under 10$/each. Definitely worth it, as it gives you a nice & thick protective foam layer to protect your lantern, especially the glass chimney that's most likely the weakest link of the entire unit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it Feb. 3 2014
Color Name:Aluminium|Verified Purchase
It's light, compact, efficient, and not LED. I don't have a love of battery operated goods. The light is bright, but not warm, and batteries are junk to carry and dispose of properly. Candle light on the other hand, gives you some heat, a nice warm light, the glass shields it from the wind, it's just a great product. I have the neoprene cocoon, and the reflector, and I think it's a great package with all three.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it. Oct. 13 2013
Color Name:Aluminium|Verified Purchase
Kept my tent warmer, cut down on condensation, and provided a nice soft light getting ready for bed. Plus I hung my sweaty socks a bit above it and they were bone dry and nice and warm in the morning :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice Lantern Dec 9 2013
Color Name:Green|Verified Purchase
Have not actually used it yet, but so far these are my impressions.

One, it is sturdier built than I expected. For the size and weight I expected a less durable feeling unit that the one I received.

Two, it certainly is light and compact. Even inside the Neoprene cocoon (which I am glad I bought; the lantern comes with nothing by way of carrying pouch or anything) it will not take up much space on a shelf or in a pack.

I highly recommend the cocoon by the way. Seems a very wise investment.

Now I do have some complaints.

Since it telescopes, you have to pull the glassed section up out of the body. I found two problems with that:

It is very hard to pull hard enough to open it and not hard enough to do any damage. For example, the first time, I ended up with it almost bending as I apparently applied uneven pressure making one side open father than the other.

On top of that, the metal heat reflector/top of the glass section is attached to the housing by three tabs that penetrate the housing fully. These have sharp edges difficult to deal with due to their proximity to the housing (painted green) and scratched me quite nicely before I adjusted my grip when discovering they are sharp.

I was also not pleased to find out the base is plastic. Since this is the portion that must be twisted free to light and change the candles, I cannot help but question how long plastic locking into metal will stand up with repeated open/close.

A small thing, but a complaint none the less, is the chain attached to the hanger. I would have liked one that could be unclipped so that alternative hanging methods could more easily be used without the chain in the way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Product Jan. 29 2013
Color Name:Red|Verified Purchase
Wonderful product the spring loaded base gradually raises the candle so that it burns at a steady rate. Could be slightly more solidly built. Can be crushed if not properly packed in your emergency kit. Overall a very good product.

4.0 out of 5 stars good light and warmth Oct. 22 2013
Color Name:Green|Verified Purchase
the lantern keeps the candles burning for at least 8 hours. provided a nice light, not too bright, not too dim when we hung it up outside the campsite. helped warm our tent when we lit it inside the tent for a few hours before going to bed. It's not very heavy or large so I'd bring this even on backwoods trips in cold weather.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Feb. 1 2014
Color Name:Red|Verified Purchase
Some people are oddly having problems, but this lantern is beautiful in its simplicity. I hope UCO never changes this thing, or starts sacrificing quality. There are just so few things, these days, that are just simple and well-built. Please read the directions to a product before posting a negative review. I strongly suggest using the beeswax candles for tent-use. (Yes, you can hang it in your tent by the chain attached. Just be careful). The gasses produced by paraffin candles are quite poisonous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for camping Oct. 11 2011
By Janice
Color Name:Green
This little lantern is small and sturdy, packs well and has good light. I used it in a power outage at home and felt very safe since the flame is contained. I will be buying a few more soon. JZ
