I've tried a lot of headlamps and camping lanterns throughout the years. Gone are the days of the old lanterns I would have to light and hope I had enough gas to last. I always worried about flames and gas.
I've had the opportunity of trying the Nite Ize headlamps and I fell in love with the brand immediately. The products last and are super bright. the Nite Ize Radiant 300 Rechargeable LED Lantern is no exception.
With three brightness settings, I get all of the light I need. It lights up an entire six man tent with the brightest setting. Even the low setting puts out enough light to find my shoes in the middle of the night.
The Nite Ize Lantern has a rechargeable battery with a good battery life. We've used it for several hours at a time playing night games and for camping. The battery has lasted for our activities. I've never had the patience to let it run long enough to die soI have no idea how many hours it actually lasts. Even better, the rechargeable battery is strong enough to charge my smartphone. With input and output plugs, it gives the lantern versatility others don't have.
A metal clip on the top allows the lantern to be clipped to a pack or can be hung from the center of a tent. It doesn't get too hot so I don't have to worry about it melting the fabric on my tent.
The lantern comes with a carry case to keep it from getting scratched. I haven't found anything about it I haven't liked. Though I like taking it camping, I wouldn't take it backpacking as it would take up too much space in my pack and I like to keep it as lightweight as possible.
