Best overall: LE Rechargeable LED Camping | $25.99

LE Rechargeable LED Camping
An innovative transformer lantern that has 2 built-in flashlights. We like it because it's great all-around choice: it's bright, with a respectable 600 lumens, it has a large 1600 mAh rechargeable battery so you won't have to charge it often and it comes at a great price. Perfect to bring along on a camping trip!

Best value: SunJack CampLight (TM) USB | $14.99

SunJack CampLight (TM) USB
A great value: super low price, light-weight with a rechargeable battery and a solar charger! This is much more than we would expect from a light at this price.

Best brightness: LE Rechargeable LED Camping | $38.99

LE Rechargeable LED Camping
This is a super bright flashlight-lantern hybrid with a huge 3600 mAh battery, giving you a long lasting night-time illumination. The battery is so large that it can be used to recharge your cell-phone, which is a great back-up power supply for power outages or for when you're far away from a power source like on a camping trip. We like it's versatility, as it has both a front-facing, powerful spotlight and a side facing lantern which is great for camping, as you can use it as a flashlight when walking around at night and then turn it into a lantern to read at night in your tent.

Best weight: Supernova Halo 180 Extreme | $29.95

Supernova Halo 180 Extreme
One of the smallest lanterns we've seen, this ultra-portable lantern is perfect to hang inside your tent. It's not the brightest we've seen but packs a decent punch for its size. If you've ever been camping or been in a long power outage, you know that having the ability to hang a light somewhere up high that illuminates a large area (as opposed to flashlight that has a focused beam) is super valuable.

Best battery capacity: Tough Light LED Rechargeable | $65.94

Tough Light LED Rechargeable
I bought one of these a long time ago after having been in a 3 day power outage and it still serves me well today. It's great all around, with plenty of brightness and a massive 6000 mAh rechargeable battery, perfect to have as an emergency light as well as a backup way to charge a phone which is critical during a power outage or during camping. On its lowest setting, it can last 200 hours, which is 16 nights of illumination!
