Storm Lantern: Frequently asked questions

What types of Storm Lantern are there and what determines a good product?

There are three types of Storm Lanterns. The first is the standard model, which has a single lantern on top and can be used to light up an area for about 15 minutes at a time (depending on how much you shake it). The second type is called the Double-Lantern Model, which has two separate lights that each burn for 10 minutes when shaken. Finally there’s the Triple-Lantern Model with three individual lights; this one will last 20 minutes per shaking session.

The first thing to look for is a Storm Lantern that has the highest possible lumens. This will ensure you can see your path clearly and also be able to light up an area if needed. A good lantern should have at least 100 lumens, but more than 200 would be ideal. You’ll want one with multiple settings so it can function as both a flashlight or lantern when necessary. It should also come with its own batteries which are easy enough to find in stores like Walmart, Target, etc., or online on Amazon (see our review of the best camping flashlights). Finally, make sure it comes with some sort of warranty just in case there are any issues down the road.

Who should use a Storm Lantern?

Anyone who wants to be seen. The Storm Lantern is the most visible light on the market, and it’s perfect for anyone looking to get noticed while riding at night or in low-light conditions. It also makes a great addition to any emergency kit.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Storm Lantern?

The first thing you should consider is the size of your lantern. If it’s too small, then you won’t be able to fit all the people in your family inside and if it’s too big, then there will be no need for everyone to go out into the storm at once. Also make sure that whatever model you choose has a good reputation with previous buyers as this can save you from having any issues later on down the line. Finally, look for one which uses LED bulbs instead of traditional ones so that they last longer and don’t get hot when in use.

The first thing you need to check is the size of the Storm Lantern. It should be large enough for your needs and small enough so that it doesn’t take up too much space in your home or campsite. You also have to look at its weight, as well as how easy it is to carry around with you when camping outdoors or during an emergency situation where power may not be available. If a lantern has multiple settings, then make sure they are all useful and can provide sufficient light depending on what kind of activity you will use them for (such as reading). Finally, consider whether there are any additional features such as USB charging ports which could come in handy if needed.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Storm Lantern?


Storm lanterns are a great way to light up your home during power outages. They provide the same amount of light as an average 60 watt incandescent bulb, but use less energy and last longer than traditional candles. Plus they’re safer. No more worrying about burning down your house or accidentally starting a fire with open flames from candles in case of storms or other emergencies. And unlike flashlights that can get hot when used for extended periods, storm lanterns stay cool to the touch so you don’t have to worry about burns if it gets knocked over by accident while lit on its base (which is also included).


Storm Lanterns are not very bright. They also have a limited burn time, and they can be hard to light in windy conditions.
