I got an email today from Amazon pointing out that, for a limited time, you can save 31% off a 2-pack of collapsible camping lanterns with promo code 312EA2RH.
Personally, I’ve got a few collapsible lanterns like these and have used them for at least two or three years now and I think they’re great! I wrote about one of them a few years back here, though these are a different brand.
Granted, such lanterns are not nearly as bright as a gas lantern, but they’re really good for being battery-powered since they’re LEDs which make them very efficient. In fact, I think they’re among the brightest battery-powered lanterns I own.
Besides that, they’re also super-lightweight, obviously compact (about the size of a can of vegetables when collapsed), safe for kids and adults because you won’t get burned (ask me how I know that’s a problem with gas lanterns), run on only a few AA batteries, and are nearly waterproof (let’s say quite water resistant).
Anyway, I couldn’t recommend them enough for the price at retail and with an additional 31% off right now… they’re a steal.
Grab a pack of two for your next camping trip or do what I do and keep a few placed around the house for when the power goes out.
