This is the classic, long-burning collapsible candle lantern that has provided warm natural light to thousands of outdoor enthusiasts for decades. It is perfectly suited to backpacking, mountaineering, snow camping and similar outdoor pursuits, as well as providing convenient emergency backup lighting. The Original Candle Lantern utilizes one UCO 9-hour candle, surrounding it in the safest, most efficient lantern housing available anywhere. The spring powered candle tube pushes the candle up as it burns, keeping the flame burning at a constant height. A viewing slot allows the user to monitor the remaining burn time of the slow-burning candle.
