What do you recommend?

Need a bright light to read by. Lantern torchy thing to sit on the table in the tent or outside.

Thank you.

Oh and we don't have EHU. So batteries or wind up.

Also , two of those solar garden lghts on stakes, plant them outside your tent entrance (tentrance ?) to light the doorway at night

Thanks Goat but what sort of lantern? grin And is a futter the same as a faff?

Is gas safe? I get nervous having gas inside the tent.

What about the U flourescent tube things I've seen. Are they any good?

I've seen other campers with really really bright lanterns. What are they?

Love the idea of lighting the entrance at night. Very twinkly.

We've got a flourescent tube which you can charge at home as well as in your car cig lighter. Is v bright, can read a book by it in the (large) main dome of our 7 man tent when it is hanging in the centre. Was about £40.

Ooh that sounds good - like the idea of not having to buy batteries. Any idea what make it is?

Yes, it is a Vango rechargeable wand (160 LED, whatever that means...) - £36 online at all weathers.co.uk (can't do links). Been very pleased with it.

et voila?

Like the sound of rechargeable. Does it last long between recharges?

Think at least 3 hrs, we had it on for quite a while. But yes, that's the one.
