"I purchased one of your basic candle lanterns from REI in Bloomington, MN and have just returned from a great trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe area in Minnesota. This was my first camping trip in which I used your candle lantern. It worked great for me and will accompany me on all of my future outings. Rain, wind, water, it functioned all night as needed, (we had a guest who was afraid of bears so we used it all night long each night). I have been in the outdoors in many different situations for over 30 years and your candle lantern is perhaps one of the most functional outdoor products I have used. Nice work!" -- St. Paul, MN
Using Candle Lanterns
The image of a glowing tent in the wilderness night, stars and moon overhead, is an appealing one. With a little common sense a UCO Candle Lantern is as safe in a tent as other light sources, and much more appealing and economical. A Candle Lantern produces warmth in a tent while reducing condensation—try that with a headlamp! Always ventilate the tent adequately, keep the heat shield away from tent walls, and keep the burning candle within sight. The result is a warm tent, plenty of light to read by, and your headlamp's batteries are preserved for those times when you really need them.
WARNING: To prevent fire, keep burning candle within sight. Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
