I took my 8yr old daughter hammock camping for the first time during lockdown 2020 and once Mum went home it was just me and her in the woods! Everything was fine until it started to get I could then see my Daughters imagination kick in as with all kids, and it was at this point I produced my trusty Uco lantern! Which I lite just before bedtime hung in a tree and she was out like a battery light, 8+hours later we woke in the morning and it was still burning.
I love these lanterns. Good quality and can use them anywhere. Get yourself one!
Brass makes sense for a candle lantern, ment for portability, because its study enough to absorb bumps that otherwise could break glass. It also holds heat longer than harder metals/alloys, making it a fantastic medium between comfortable people and fire. The color reflected off brass from a candle is beautiful imo. UCO did us a solid with this lantern.
