Camping Lantern – Can’t Live Without Them

Now that my son goes to a new school with a lot of focus on outdoor activities, they have had camping trips planned. Plus, all of a sudden tons of camping opportunities are flowing into my son’s life. And he is thrilled.

But with camping you need good camping equipment. Aside from a camping knife, and the obvious tent and sleeping bag, he needs a lantern. When I was younger, my family and I used to go camping and the one thing I remember most vividly was a kerosene lantern. Gratefully, there are some amazing lamps now that run on batteries so I don’t have to worry if he’ll burn his tent down.

That’s how I found 4 LED Lantern. It was perfect!

Dorcy is a company that has become one of our favorites for years. Living in Central America we lose electricity often and have learned that you need strong, reliable and long lasting flashlights which is exactly Dorcy’s forte. So I immediately went to them before any other. And of course they never disappoint.

The lantern weights less than a pound. Easy latch to hang anywhere. Can last up to 70 hours of light with one set of batteries. Every time you put on a new set of 4AA batteries, the lantern can last up to 70 hours on.

And of course I had to buy their DieHard® 4AA Alkaline Batteries simply because I didn’t want to worry about anything happening with my kid’s trip. I was sure he would leave the lamp on for the entire time. And calculating the trip which was only for 48 hours, I knew I would be safe with these batteries.
