Lantern Recommendations? LED or Gas?
I am changing over to propane, retiring my old coleman white gas stove/lantern setup and looking for a reliable lantern to provide light for cooking, games/puzzles, etc.
Are any of the LED lanterns reliable and bright enough to replace a gas lantern entirely, or are they more like a backup item? I am especially interested in the units that have a solar panel and crank generator with integral NiMh batteries so carrying/disposing of batteries would not be an issue, but I'm not sure if these things really work and can keep up with nightly usage on a multi day camp, or are they just gimmicks?
Better to stick with replaceable batteries and an external charger?
Is some form of LP/Gas the only way to provide reliable light for a longer trip?
