WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN PURCHASING A LANTERN?

Light Output

Light output is measured in lumens which is key to evaluating the brightness of a light source.

Unlike watts, which measure energy consumption, lumens quantify the total amount of visible light emitted. This makes lumens a crucial metric for selecting appropriate lighting solutions for various environments. A higher lumen rating indicates a brighter light, essential for tasks requiring good visibility. Conversely, lower lumens can create a softer, more ambient lighting.

While this is a good indication of how effective the headlamp will be, bear in mind that lumens just measure the brightness of the beam - not the beam distance. Many headlamps will show both the lumens and the beam distance, so it's a good idea to take note of both.

Battery type and runtime

Run time and battery type can differ greatly between brands and models. While a longer run time is generally more desirable, the choice of battery type can depend on individual needs. For instance, rechargeable batteries offer convenience, but you should consider if a single charge will last through each use and whether you can recharge them when necessary. In scenarios like multi-day hikes, where more than one charge might be needed, a lantern with single-use batteries might be a better option.

Size and weight

Consider how portable you need the lantern to be. Smaller, lighter lanterns are better for backpacking, while larger ones may be suitable for car camping or home use. It is important to balance size and weight with the necessary brightness and battery life, ensuring the lantern is powerful enough to meet your needs without becoming a burden.
