Forget packing a heavy lantern or flashlight the next time you go hiking, camping or boating. Throw the Coghlan’s Micro Lantern in your pack and you’ve got powerful light in a 2-inch package that fits in the palm of your hand. (That pic is just about actual size.)
Proving size really doesn’t matter, and also great to keep in your car’s glove box for emergencies, the Micro Lantern costs less than $8 bucks and sports a powerful LED that can light up the night in a 6.5-foot diameter. It’s also water resistant and has a flashing mode for when you get in trouble.
The small clip let’s you wear it on your jacket for hands-free illumination, or clip it to the top of a tent to keep the camping party going all night. And since the battery will last you 25 hours in continuous mode, or 50 hours when flashing, the party can last all weekend.
