HighGear Trail Lite Mini

This is a sweet little lantern for 18 bucks. Perfect size to light up a car camping tent (6P, 8P) or for playing cards at the campsite picnic table. Also, its so small, you could easily bring it backpacking (smaller than a can of soda). It does lack a dimmer setting, but again, its 18 bucks for a good amount of light. Not sure about durability yet (only had for a couple of months). Of all the lanterns on the market, this one has the highest average burn time (110 hours) of any I could find, which equals less batteries, which equals more money in my pocket.
