LED hanging tent lights are a great alternative. They’re bright, inexpensive, safe and tend to last a long time. We’re big fans of LED lights, too, because they’re good to go at any extreme, hot or cold. Most the tent lights we’ve chosen to review at Camping Things, are good to go from -40 up to 60 degrees, without too much of a problem.
As always, we’ve tried to find a balance between value and quality, so you’re assured a great piece of kit, whichever one of these space-saving lights you pick.
SUBOOS Ultra Bright Portable LED Tent Light
‘Traditional lantern shape, full-on LED power.
With a whopping 60 LEDs packed into the frosted dome, the SUBOOS Ultra Bright Portable LED Tent Light is a real powerhouse, designed to light your entire tent as a hanging feature. The traditional lantern shape is a nice touch ,and it helps to spread the light evenly over a pretty large area. A frosted dome helps to disperse the light more softly, and the hanging mechanism is satisfyingly strong, so no worries about pulling it down or breaking it during transportation.
Like most of these lightweight, inexpensive LED lights, the SUBOOS Ultra Bright Portable LED Tent Light is best suited to more casual trips. It will work in extreme conditions, but the plastic housing may not withstand hefty shocks or crushing. Still, it is well-made made and solid enough for the price.
There’s a steel hanging mechanism on top of the Suboos, and both the frosted dome and housing are made from plastic.
There are 60 LED light packed into the Suboos, equating to 230 lumen. That’s enough to light even the largest tents, and it can be used outside, too. There are three brightness options on the Suboos (super bright, bright and dim) so you’re not restricted to the full 60 LEDs.
You can also choose to use either one rechargeable 18650 battery, or three standard AAA batteries.
