I was picking up another lantern in case we lose power from this hurricane coming, and i noticed that almost all the lanterns that i saw there on sunday were already sold out today. :xeye: Luckily, they people buying them apparently...

    I've just learned about and ordered what appears to be the best thing since sliced bread for interior lighting on those dark and stormy nights. I keep a number of kerosene lanterns on hand but have never been satisfied with the amount of light they produce. Knowing that fire departments won't...

    Hi Everybody! I just recieved the Lehmans non-electric catalog. I really wanted to order some oil lamps but I have no idea which one. If you have the catalog Fall/Winter 2010, they are on the cover and on page 9. I like the Jupiter Farmers Friend and the Original Easy light. Has anyone ever used...

    Going to be camping soon & figured this would be a good time to pick up an LED lantern. Any suggestions out there? I dont want to spend over $60 if I dont have to... But I do want a very durable, bright, high quality lantern with possible multi functions. So what are all the new gimmicks &...

    I have a dual fuel stove and lantern that I was considering using indoors if I had too. Coleman says no....Now I understand the issues with carbon monoxide in your home...but I would think that your regular gas stove would put out about the same amount of CO. Has anyone used these indoors?

    Just thought I would share this for grins and giggles. Over the weekend my father in law gave me his old Coleman camp stove. A little rusty, but otherwise in good condition. (My in-laws are getting older and are always looking to "down-size" all the stuff they've collected over the years.)...

    I am looking to replace/supplement my old white gas pump lantern with one that can use the small propane canisters. From what I have read about the Coleman ones they seem to use aluminum threads on the connection fitting and they can tend to strip out very easily making the lantern useless. Can...

    Just ran across a $12-$14 crank lantern at K-Mart & figured...what the heck, have wanted one. It advertised 1 minute of crank equals 20 minutes of light on low. I cranked 2 minutes and got about 2-3 minutes of usable light & everything after it was to dim....any suggestions for a good one will...

    I asked my wife to pick up one of the $4.00 oil lamps at Walmart today. She went to check out and it kept saying "restricted item". The lady said she could not sell it to her. My wife told her that the shelf was full of them and nothing stating any type of recall. This Walmart is located south...

    I am stuck in a dilemma. I am trying to decide on a kerosene lantern to buy. I am looking at the Coleman 639 pressure lantern. I can get it new for $65. I have looked at the Petromax lanterns, but they are a little pricier, but can handle other fuels. I have heard mixed reviews on the...

    I did a search and it looks like the Petromax Britelyte is a popular, versatile choice for using indoors. I already have a myriad of MagLites, a UCO candle lantern, and a Coleman duel fuel lantern, but nothing that is quiet and burns cleanly inside. I live in an apt. and everything is...

    I'm looking for a reasonably priced place to find a pressurized kerosene lantern similar to a Petromax. I've seen several Butterfly models, which are supposed to be a Chinese version of the Petromax for sale direct from China via wholesale suppliers. You would think with that many available...

    I was searching on Coleman gas lanterns and found they make a single mantel lantern that runs on kerosene. They run under $70.00 # The feaures of this Coleman Kerosene lantern are: 3.99 lbs # Powered by 1.3 pints of kerosene fuel # 7 hours burn time # High light output - 320 candle power.
  20. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have both and was wondering. What would you suggest? Stock up on Kerosene and wicks? Or stock up on white gas, generators, pump parts and mantles? The advantage of Coleman lots of light, But lots parts that wear out, And they can be tempermental to start. The ol' kerosene "hurricane" lantern...
