Iconic Camping Lantern Gets a Makeover

Well-known UCO Candle Lanterns now available in an ultra-light Micro Lantern

SEATTLE, WA – Check any tent pitched around the country and odds are you will find an Original Candle Lantern hanging from the center of the tent. A new version of this camping classic is being introduced just in time for the spring and summer peak season, the Micro Lantern.

Following the age-old “Leave No Trace” outdoorsman ethic, Candle Lanterns have no batteries to consume, run down, and discard, and they do not require fuel that can leak or spill. No flashlight can offer the natural beauty and charm or the practicality and functional benefit of a Candle Lantern. In the warm, pleasing glow of the flame, the Candle Lantern also produces a steady flow of natural heat that warms a tent and reduces condensation.

Designed to be the ideal light for backpackers and followers of the ultra-light weight movement, the new Micro Lantern is the smallest Candle Lantern ever. The Micro Lantern is a tealight lantern that also collapses for compact storage just like the Original Candle Lantern. It’s perfect for taking along in your backpack as it compacts down to 2.5 inches in height. When you take apart the Micro Lantern to replace the candle, you will find one of its most innovative features–hidden in the base is space to store a second tealight candle. This allows you to carry enough tealights for 6-8 hours of light, with each UCO Tealight Candle providing a 3-4 hour burn time. Including the two tealight candles, the Micro Lantern weighs a mere 4.2 ounces.

The new Micro Lantern is available in Aluminum, Red, Green, Blue, Purple, Orange, and Yellow. The Micro Lantern retails for $12.99 and is available at REI, Campmor, Cabela’s, and Amazon.com. For more information please visit www.ucogear.com.
