The new generation of LED camping lights resolves lots of the ‘inconveniences’ of standard camping lights. During the past 5 years or so, there have been giant jumps forward in the development of usable LED camping lighting. It was not that long ago, LED lights were considered just about too dim for regular use, and their production process was too costly for everyday purposes. Nowadays, LEDs can emit the full range of light, can be set to dim to be used as a nightlight, or bright to illuminate your complete campsite. Better still, the manufacturers of LED lights have made lights that remain bright miles beyond the lifespan of either incandescent or fluorescent lights.
LED camping lights have many edges over just about each other sort of camping lantern made. They are sturdy – LED camping lights are made for harsh and rugged environments. They resist temperatures from -40 to 82 degrees Celsius (175 degrees Fahrenheit). Bump them around, toss them in the trunk, knock them off the table, drop them down the ravine they will still work (OK maybe not after dropping down the ravine). Try that with a normal torch or halogen lantern.
They are truly long lasting – if you have been on the incorrect end of a flashlight with dying batteries, you may appreciate the proven fact that LED camping lights can run for as much as sixty hours steadily on one set of batteries. Even better, many models are solar powered they will run all night on a charge from a couple of hours worth of daylight. And the latest white LED bulbs have the standard life of about 5 hundred hours meaning that you can still get ninety percent of the first light output after 5 hundred hours. Unlike standard bulbs, they do not just burn out they just gradually get dimmer, but keep working.
LED camping lights are safer. They burn ‘cool’, making them safe to be used in a tent or other enclosed space. Unlike fuel lanterns, they do not present a safety jeopardy, and do not rely on your carrying flammable fuel with you. They are brighter (the old argument against LED camping lights used to be that they were too dim for everyday or perhaps emergency use). That is not true any longer. The latest white LED lights are sixty times brighter than standard LED lights, and many lamps are capable of manufacturing near sunlight intensity and range light.
LED camping lights are versatile. They may be employed in a wide selection and sorts of lights and lanterns. From a little emergency light sufficiently small enough to be carried on your key chain to full-size lanterns that may illuminate your whole campsite, you will find LED camping lights that fit any need. You can even choose one that will sit on a table or hang from a branch or wire for optimum flexibility.
