North Star 2 Pack Portable Lanterns
Like the little brothers of the large lanterns above, this double pack from North Star brings a few more things to your next camping trip. They can be used as a standard torch or a lantern (saving pack weight!) and have that always handy USB output for phone charging.
OK, the one downside is they have an integrated battery, but with a solar charging option (along with DC) you can leave them out in the light all day and they’ll be ready for another night time of use 🙂
A Quick Definition of Water Resistant
Any product that can truly survive a good dose of water will come with a high IPX rating, but the construction of gear you can get soaking wet and still expect to work will come at a premium price. Water Resistant usually allows camping equipement like these lanterns to handle a bit of rain and moisture without running into problems.
Your best response is to treat these camping lights as any of the other electronic devices (cameras etc) you pack and they should last you many seasons outdoors.
