LED Camp Lantern recommendations?

Thread starter #1
Looking to upgrade a couple of Coleman LED lanterns. Maybe something USB rechargeable. I've got a generic LED lantern with three D batteries that works better than the bulky Coleman with the red battery pack.

Readding this to compare an LED type to;

"Two mantle Coleman Gas lanterns are "about" 800 lumens, Two Mantle standard Coleman Propane lanterns are "around" 1000 lumens. The Coleman Pinacle Propane Lantern is just shy of 1600 lumens, the last time we had them tested earlier this year."

I'd think 1,000 lumens would be bright enough over a picnic table to eat or cook by. Might even get by with 800 lumens.
 
I have 2 of the Goal Zero lanterns and so far very pleased with them. The 2nd one I bought would mysteriously just come on occasionally, emailed them about it and they just sent a new one to me no questions asked.

My brother has two of them plus a solar panel. I do like the charging crank option etc. I did read where a lot of people have trouble with them coming on by themselves. He has the 200 and the Mini. The 200 was replaced with the 400.

I'm just not sure 330 lumens is enough light. A Coleman two mantle white gas lantern is around 800 lumens. That's what I've always used for cooking and eating after dark and to see to get around the campsite. The Coleman Northstar Propane Lantern is 1,500 lumens.


The fan option sounds inviting!
I like it cause it is not overpowering but
They have a bunch of different kinds of different led work lights at Home Depot that run off drill batteries and are a lot brighter.
