Lighting is an often over looked, but very important topic to consider before going out in the wilderness at night.

Lanterns have been a primary outdoor light source for centuries. While the modern lantern has evolved from the basic candle or animal oil lamp, lanterns remain an important light source for all outdoorsmen. The two most common lanterns used for camping and hunting today are battery powered lanterns and fuel powered lanterns. You can buy low-priced quality lanterns from premium manufactures online at Pinnacle Trading Company.
Battery Powered Lanterns
Battery powered lanterns are the safest type of lantern available. These can be used for indoor lighting or used inside tents without worry of harmful fumes or fire. Battery powered lanterns are also safe for use with children. While battery powered lanterns are not as bright at fuel lanterns, lanterns with traditional bulbs will be brighter. However, since traditional bulbs use far more power to run, be sure to bring extra batteries. LED lanterns will use less battery power to run, but produce a dimmer light. The best option for battery powered lanterns are combined bulb and LED lanterns because you can adjust the amount of light and the energy consumption. Another battery-powered option is a rechargeable lantern. These lanterns have built-in rechargeable batteries.
Fuel Powered Lanterns
Fuel lanterns produce a very bright light, but are safe for outdoor use only. Several fuel lanterns can be adjusted to emit a brighter or dimmer light. The main fuel sources for lanterns are propane and liquid fuel, including kerosene. Propane lanterns are convenient because there is no need to pour fuel, which eliminates the worry of spilling flammable liquids. Kerosene lanterns require the fuel to be poured into a small gas tank and then pumped to pressurize the tank. Fuel lanterns use mantles, small woven fabric bags that attach to the burners and produce the illumination. Lanterns can be single or double mantle models, with the double mantle models burning brighter.
Flashlights vary in size from small pocket sized task lights to larger models like the popular Maglite 4 Cell flashlight. Like battery-powered lanterns, flashlights contain either a traditional bulb, or LED lights. You can buy a variety of sizes of flashlights from leading manufactures at low prices at Pinnacle Trading Company. We also sell a variety of discount flashlight accessories including replacement bulbs, replacement reflector assemblies, battery packs, flashlight chargers, and mounting brackets.
Headlamps are great for hands free lighting when hunting, fishing, or hiking. Headlights often come with powerful LED lights as these draw very little energy. Therefore, with an LED headlight, such as the Browning Black Ice 4 LED Headlamp, you can expect the battery to last 50 hours with 5 LEDs and 150 hours running only one LED. Our selection of powerful headlamps from leading manufactures sold at discount prices will ensure that you have enough light for your next outdoor trip.
