No not really, unless you want to burn down Chicago! 🤣
Since the distribution for all lanterns is similar (typically omnidirectional over >180°) and they speak to lumens (simplistically, a sum of all visible spectrum photons being emitted) rather than intensity (either point intensity such as cd or area intensity such as lux), I can only conclude that the optical performance of a LED lantern is substantially similar to that of a gas lantern rated at identical lumens.Do you understand how the lumens measurement works for omni lanterns? I really have no idea, but I wonder if using those numbers is a 1:1 comparison or not?
OK as a collectible, but I’d never use because of danger of tipping and starting a fire. Also fumes if using indoors. Same with candles.i mean i have a sofirn if25a latern i charge with solar i do miss the hiss of gas . but is there any reason to buy these relics ?

...in situations where the CO won't get you, yes the heat from a propane lamp can be a benefit. I used one as such while I was doing some disaster recovery work after Hurricane Sandy, in NY state. Camping in a house's yard while completing enough restoration of the house to restore utilities worked, and the propane lamp did take the chill off (it was not *that* cold) and of course could be bright enough for reading.For warmth alongside the lighting, I guess?
A predator or Honda 2K inverter generator will run about 4 hours on the same 1/3rd gallon of gas at 25% load which is 400 watts of 120V AC. That means it will power 10 - 40 watt LED shop lights, each producing 4,000 lumens.
Coleman (and I imagine others) used to make such a beast. At the time when it was manufactured:I didn't know that anyone made a pump up kerosene lantern.
His vids are great, but I think his math was off and a bit rambley.I had never seen this guy's channel before. He's informative, interesting, and funny. So thank you for introducing me to it I have now subscribed. And I've been "watching" them all day. So many neat things I didn't know before
I think for kerosene you're better off with a hurricane lantern with a wick. They don't make as much light but you don't have to deal with the horror of a kerosene lantern
