I have a BCF LED lantern and I don't like the quality of light the LEDs emit. It's bright but harsh. Much prefer fluro 'light'. IMO of course!

Your links didn't work for me. We have 2 Primus Supernova 180 lanterns, I'm happy with them so far, great even as bedside lamps at home while not camping!

The fellow above is right in saying that the flouros give better wide area lighting though, at the moment for general lighting we're trying out a dual fuel lantern and it's fantastic. The LED's are for backup and task lighting at the moment....we used to use 12v flouros but they started playing up and not reliable if your 12 battery isn't in the best condition I think.

Hi Jason,

I got a couple of Arlec lanterns from Bunnings for $29.95 has about 20 LEDs and takes 4 D cells.

The light output is good for general use around a camp but they are not the best reading light.

D cells should last quite a while. They also come with a remote control which I more or less don't use, but I might one day.

I thought they were good value.

Cheers, Bruce.
