|1. Coleman Lanterns:
The first two lanterns are Coleman gas lanterns one is old a 220J (from camping) and the other is a new dual fuel power-mate.
I found that both will take unleaded gas and Coleman white fuel. They will provide about 300 watts of light for 7 hours or a reduced level for over 10 hours. Remember they get HOT! You have to be sure to have replacement parts available and replacement wicks if you use these lanterns over any length of time. You cannot mix the fuel. The older lanterns you can buy on E-Bay are heavy with a lot more metal involved in the tank construction. My 220 was made in 1972 and is still going strong.
2. Solar powered lanterns
I live in Florida so I get a lot of sunlight each day. The solar lantern uses LEDs. It gives off about 60 watts of light. It is a good light for using when you have to move around. "No heat" The problems I found were the length of time it takes to recharge it and how long that charge lasts! It would be better if the lantern would last longer then 3 hours per night! I could not get a full charge each day and by the end of 10 days it lasted only 1 - 1 1/2 hours. One other problem don't get them wet!
3. Hurricane Lamp
I live in hurricane country so I have lamps they use wicks and lamp oil. It cost about $1.60 per quart. They produce a soft light I think you can use for food preps and cleanup. You cannot use it to read by or do many of the tasks you would normally do at night. Again it gets hot. The light last 12 hours depending how you set the wick. Be careful of the glass as it breaks very easy - - I know I broke two last week.
4. Crank up lantern
I have one crank up lantern - it worked well as long as you are willing to crank it back up every 20 minutes. It did not break down as my flash- light has done. I would not recommend it. They just do not last long enough.
My recommendation is to have a combination of various lanterns so yuou will always have the lights on at night.
