Default UCO Candle Lantern

Just picked up an original UCO candle lantern, been wanting to get one for years and the time was right.Impressed as hell at the beautiful design of it and the modular functionality...just a very impressive little gadget.Will be taking it to the Rockies in a week to warm our tent and shed some light on the situation.
Any others out there that have opinions on it?

Sounds interesting. With everything now LED, but... high power LED's don't really warm a tent, so I am curious to hear your feedback on how well it actually works to provide any sort of warmth in the tent without setting oneself or tent on fire.

I was intrigued by the idea to use this during the winter to help keep some light and maybe a bit of heat in the tent, i ordered one from amazon and it came to me used and broken... not impressed with amazon on that one and it went back, havent picked up another yet, interested to here how you like it.

I must admit I'm a little apprehensive about using it in our tent but it seems like everyone does without major casualties ( that we hear of )..and it's design is for this use...SOoo, gonna throw caution to the wind and give it a go..and hopefully not turn our tent into a molten blob of polyester.
Will report back on the experience for sure!
Still have all the high powered gazillion lumin LED's as a backup, but like you said they fail to keep you warm.

Sorry to hear of your Amazon experience, I've heard similar stories unfortunately.
The lantern seems promising, took it into our small bathroom with the lights out and was amazed at the light output from just a candle!..not to mention the warmth that it radiates.
Once used on our trip, I will give a full report!
