I made my own mini lantern for outdoor use, trekking, mountaineering etc. It runs on lamp oil (ermmm, Paraffin Oil in the UK? Petrol or Petroleum in Switzerland...).
I checked some products but was not really happy with what was available. This mini lantern responds to my needs well and is part of my extended backpack kit:
- small and also easy to operate (even with cold fingers)
- long burn time (10-14 hrs on one fill)
- reliable & rugged
- NOT MESSY
- if you buy the right lamp oil not stinky
- if it falls over it will go out (preferably you hang it up on its chain)
It is a small piece of kit that makes outdoor living (especially in bad weather) more comfortable. Let me know what you think.
(I also have some images to show but have not figured out yet how to upload them to the thread....)
