    Guess I qualify now as a lantern collector of sorts as I've acquired a number mostly on sale/clearance and some good ones from thrift shops.

    Most are LED but several used flange-base 4.5-6v incan. bulbs which have been converted using Dorcy 30/40 lumen LED bulbs...not really bright (<1W) but good enough for use around the house.

    Mostly 3 or 4 cell C or D; no high intensity, nothing expensive with exotic names, just regular OTC retail including Dorcy, Sylvania, Ray-O-Vac, Woods, Coleman, Ventura, Broadstone.

    Also have a number of smaller AA or AAA lanterns, nothing exceptional.

    I have a Ray-O-Vac 3D Sportsman, then recently found the smaller 3AA version. Similar features, both have twist-detachable diffuser top so can be hung upside-down as area light.

    For used ones,it pays to check for damage due to leaked cells, but I've found many which are pristine. Most are being powered by a nearly endless supply of good used alkalines recovered from battery recycling...a topic in itself.

    also have another old coleman duel burner and a few others I can remember at the moment.
    This is unique, I've never seen one of these. I have one of the green double burner lanterns
