Before you hit the road, it’s important to bring some lights for your camping trip. Different types of camping lights can be used for various purposes, like seeing in the dark, fixing equipment, hiking, and so on.
The following looks at some camping lights, including their features and benefits, to help you choose the best lights to use while you’re out camping:
Electric lantern – It’s powered by a long-life battery and uses LED camping light that has an excellent light output and isn’t hot, so it’s safe for kids. It can also handle rough use and is quiet and free of exhaust.
Gas lantern – It’s powered by liquid fuel or propane or butane gas, with a refillable tank or disposable canister and glass windows. It emits an intense light that can light up the whole campsite. It’s also fuel-efficient, small and easy to use.
Candle lantern – It’s silent and uses one or more candles to produce a soft and natural light, which provides a pleasant ambience. You can also use a reflector to increase its glow and it can be used for tasks that are done up close.
LED candle lantern and mini lantern – They’re both versatile and produce a yellow light that can be dimmed automatically or manually. If moved quickly, it can flicker like a candle and turn off, but this mode can be adjusted. They also have lampshades made of silicone that can be compressed and removed, which make them easy to pack and clean. The LED lantern can be hung from anywhere and the mini lantern can be secured to straps and comes in various colors.
LED camping light – It can be used for anything, like as a desk-lamp, illuminating a larger area, getting dinner ready, playing card games, or it can be hung in the tent. Its long neck can be adjusted to your needs, and its gravity sensor knows how the lantern is set up and will focus its beam appropriately. It has a 250-lumen light output and runs on three D batteries or it can be powered through its USB port.
Snow miner headlamp/lantern – This combo is light and affordable. It can produce a bright or soft light with its dim mode, and it has a strobe mode as well. It has 110 lumens and a dome made of silicone that you can press to focus the beam. The headband also has an inconspicuous hook that can convert the headlamp into a lantern.
Mole headlamp – It has a built-in counterweight that can auto-adjust the LED light’s angle to your line of sight. You can turn this feature on or off with a button. It also has a light that blinks when the batteries are low on power and need replacing.
Lapel torch – It’s tiny and can be placed in front of you or on your hands, as well as on a rod or vest with a magnetic clip. It has 60 lumens that can last 140 hours and weighs about 1.4 ounces. It’s a great tool for camping, strolling or changing a tire at night.
