The Best Candle Lanterns

Updated on January 30, 2010

If you are ever outdoors, then you are probably aware of the need for candle lanterns. In this day and age, not many people can afford to buy gas lanterns, and so many people are making the switch to candle lanterns. This reasons for this are obvious. For one thing, candle lanterns are not as dangerous as some as lanterns are. Another reason that people are making the switch to candle lanterns is that they are cheaper than gas lanterns are, especially in the long run.

I am a fairly avid outdoors-man, and I often go camping. I usually take a candle lamp with me, mostly for safety reasons. Of course, I have flashlights, as most people do, but that does not mean that I do not take my candle lanterns with me. The reason is that if I ever run out of battery power in my flashlight, or have any other sort of problems with my flashlights, then I will still be able to use my candle lanterns to see my way around at night. this is a very big relief for me, considering that I do not want to be trapped out in the woods at night with no way to see my way around. I use candle lanterns religiously when it comes to my camping experience, and I believe that you should do the same thing as I.

So why are candle lanterns safer than gas lanterns? Well, for one thing, many people do not trust natural gas lanterns, especially on camping trips. One reason for this is that the gas could explode if you were to leave the gas lantern too close to the fire. If your gas lantern explodes, then you could be in really big trouble, because the resulting explosion, along with the shards of metal, could injure or kill you. I would recommend that you stick with candle lanterns for the sake of your health and the sake of your safety.

At the top of the page, I have included for your convenience a couple of candle lanterns that you may be interested in if your desire to buy candle lanterns, whether it is for your home or for your camping trips. I have included some of the candle lanterns that I believe are of higher quality. I hope you find what are you looking for.

      I agree with you 100% -- candle lanterns on patios, etc. are also wonderfully decorative. Best, Sis
