Am just planning for camping, wondered whether anyone could recommend a good lantern. We don't want anything extraordinary, but I don't want to do my usual trick of buying a really cheap one and having to spend more to replace it because it's so crap... so I thought I'd ask first! Anyone?

Thanks grin

Depends on what i'm doing/where i'm going

If we are using ehu..we use a car inspection lamp (6.99 b&q) with a low energy bulb.

But we do have one if we are going elec free. We have just bought 2 of these
here as we were impressed with them when a friend had one.
In the past we have used those round led light ufo type things..they were quite good too.

For the bedrooms we just have a torch/head torch in each bedroom on standby

oooh thanks, those lantern capsules look amazing! How much light do they throw off? We've got quite a big tent (8 man) - are they enough to provide the primary light for the tent, or are they just supplementary type lights? Maybe with two or three?
