Camping Lanterns are Clean, Safe and Efficient

Tags: , ,


For those who want plenty of light at the campsite, camping lanterns are no longer a hassle. You do not have to worry about messy oils that give off an offensive odor. Today’s new products are also safer, as there is no fire to worry about. They can be hung from a tree limb, in the tent or wherever light is needed.

Some people prefer to use propane or fuel oil lanterns when camping. However, they can be messy and difficult to manage. You also have to think about where they are placed. Even on a flat surface, a strong wind could possibly knock them over, creating a potential fire hazard.

New LED camping lanterns offer a safe and bright alternative. Though they run on batteries, the light is very energy efficient, so you can keep them on for a long time. They are safe for children, so finding their way to the bathroom or shower in the dark is much simpler.

You may want to use these products for outdoor card games or board games at the campground. You may simply want additional lighting sources on a deck or patio for night time parties or entertaining. If you prefer not to worry about changing batteries, an electric camping lantern may also be a good choice.

With a rechargeable battery, you can have long lasting power to illuminate even the darkest of camp sites. Many models come with a an AC and a DC car charger, so you can have power even in remote sites with no electric hook ups. This makes the electric model ideal for many outdoor activities, such as camping, boating or hunting.

If you want a Coleman lantern, you can select any type that you desire. Oil and propane models are available for around $50 to $80, depending on the fuel source and model. For LED models, prices range from $10 to $40. With all lanterns, you should consider the costs of purchasing additional fuel sources or batteries. Rechargeable models are probably the most cost effective, at around $30 to $40, as they require no additional supplies and can be recharged from your vehicle, if no other power sources are available.
