They are slipped on so your flashlight will convert into lantern in a snap.

Yes, they are opaque frost plastic top. I got all this accessories at BJ but other dealers also have it.

Maybe from 40-60lumens. I intended it as a campsite lighter. Something that I will leave lighted up overnight while camping.
One night.... two nights.... give me your estimate in hours of total runtime off 1 set of batteries as a night could mean 6 hours or even 10 hours.
The reason is that 40 lumens off stock lanterns takes enough power that it would tax AA batteries but D cells on a two level LED lantern could do it well enough

Say from 7.30pm to 7am. That's about 11.5hours per night.
Based on a single night camp out.
I would be happy if the lantern can stay lighted the whole night on a pair of eneloops. I am prepared to bring in spare battery if I need to camp out for several nights.
Also if the physical size of the lantern to be as small as possible since I don't get a lot of carrying capacity on an Atv.

You aren't getting any 40 lumens for 12 hours off a pair of eneloops even with the most efficient LED emitter out there. We are probably talking 3-4 eneloops for about 40-60 lumens for about 4-6 hours. To get better you would need to go do something like the 3D rayovac lantern using alkaline D cells and I am not sure what the low mode is

Hi


A couple of Vapalux/Bialaddin, I bought the right hand one recently at a local bootsale for £3, it needs a new glass, mantle and pump seal..

Wow, it's been a long time since I posted this. My collection has grown along with my knowledge of Coleman liquid gas and LP lanterns and stoves. My lanterns are now about 4 to 1 in favor of liquid white gas/LP to battery powered lanterns. My collection is too large to display like this:

Which is why I'm hoping Fenix is just "testing the waters" with their small 2aa lantern-ish light. I would love to see a good 1000+ lumen 4-18650 true lantern. If they used the same kind of tech they've used now in the LD50 and LD60 it would be perfect. It would be more consumer friendly too in that you wouldn't have to have exact matching voltages in your cells. Basically just put the TK61 on it's end Fenix, and put a good defuser over it. Oh and make it neutral. Actually put a secondary smaller defuser over the xm-l2 too to make the light softer. :)

somehow got linked to this thread from a lantern forum. Time to revive it, and post my lanterns! :) Both these collections have grown since i took these photos.)

Below are most of my LED and incandescent battery-powered lanterns, 75 % of them are modded for better output, tints, etc.
