Are any of the Battery operated Lanterns worth Buying?
We at present use a gas lantern but were considering using a battery lantern on the
table at night when eating etc. rather than having the gas lantern on the table where it is close to
the tent wall.
The battery lanterns range from AA - D size batteries to rechargeable models, we were wondering
how many hours use do you get from these lanterns before replacement or recharging of the battery/batteries
is required.

i to have a coleman rechargeable twin tube lantern & i would never go back to the two years i have owned i have only recharged it fully on four occasions.i can recharge from the cigarette lighter or mains supply.the power failure function is brilliant as my grandparents have it ready every day,the best feature is the kids are very safe compared to gas.

Robert, I also use a rechargeable (12VDC/240VAC)electric lantern, and have found it great over the past 4 years. Whilst gas lights may be brighter, the twin tube neon is safe inside tents, reliable and energy efficient. I have not had to replace a tube in the time Ive had it, where as my friends with gas lights are forever replacing filaments when travelling over severe corregations. My best tip is buy a single tube 12 volt neon and hang it on the side of your vehicle next to the camp site and not on your table, that way the insects dont get mixed up with your dinner !
