UCO Collapsible Candle Lantern

UCO 9 Hour Original Collapsible Candle Lantern camping things to take hiking

Modern lanterns are a far cry from the unsafe gas varieties often found hanging in tents of expeditions past.

Usually powered these days by LEDs, these lanterns provide a great semi-permanent light source for inside and out, whether you’re off on a weekend jaunt, at a festival, or setting up basecamp on a more extreme adventure. We’ve picked a few of our favourites, and as always, tried to find a balance between great quality, and great value.

UCO Collapsible Candle Lantern

‘Lightweight, powerful, collapsible lantern.’

The UCO Collapsible Candle Lantern is one option that doesn’t use LEDs, making it a lovely night time light, for reading, relaxing, and really getting into the camping spirit. It’s essentially a collapsible candle holder, which holds UCO’s own specially designed candles perfectly. Up to 9 hours of burn time per UCO candle.

Build quality
Choose from either aluminium or brass construction on the UCO, both are hardened and super hard-wearing. Anything collapsible needs to be durable, and the UCO is sure to stand up to repeated use. Folds away into a neat foam capsule for easy transportation.

The UCO Collapsible Candle Lantern is made from either brass, or anodized aluminium. Both are great for use inside and outside.

There are lots of things we love about the UCO, not least is the fact that it allows you to use real candles rather than LEDs. It has the added benefit of warming your tent, and it helps to remove condensation
