Customer Reviews

Very well built, unlike the cheap knockoffs.
R. Williams
The 3 "prongs" (or whatever you would call them), that slide the glass part up and down are extremely thin and worrisome, but are holding for the time being.
N. Richard
I like the scented soy candles as well as the citronella ones for repelling bugs.

I travel a lot - for leisure and work - mostly to very remote places. I am an expedition medic - and that means that my kit has to be 100% reliable even in the harshest environments - not just for me but for the rest of the group. Because of the med kit I carry, I haven't a lot of room for other bulky kit or spares/ parts / separate fuel etc either. For example, a lot of places we end up in the Himalayas are often without power. I take my primus omnifuel with me so I can always boil water - I do not need to carry fuel as I run it on petrol from the bikes or diesel from the support vehicles (the primus will run on virtually any fuel). It is a bomb proof stove and I never travel without it.

Same with the UCO's. I have a petzyl tikka plus, which performs faultlessly for most the functions I need. However, I also need a lantern that can light a room to a reasonable level which is small, compact, and won't break. Most importantly I want it so it can be left on all night, be safe, clean and not use up batteries.

I started out with a brass candle lantern which I have since realised is a brass copy of the original UCO lantern. Great bit of kit but the candles are quite big to accommodate when I travel for how I use it (I'd probably get through one a night as it is on all evening and overnight.) I then discovered UCO and bought a couple of minis - great, but the glass was very exposed and was thus more difficult to transport.

Then UCO launched the micro - the perfect solution...!

I have been everywhere with this lantern - in fact, due to its modest size, I usually carry two with me.

I really did. UCO's other lamps require full candles, and I didn't want to deal with drippage. Tea light candles are self contained, small and portable. So a little lamp like this one seemed just the thing.

Pros -

1) Small, compact.
2) Holds an extra tea light candle in the base.
3) You can hang it from stuff

Cons -

1) Glass sleeve is fragile - the first one I ordered arrived broken. Cheapest glass they could find.

2) Must buy a separate padded case if you want to protect it from banging around in your BOB (or whatever)

3) When metal top is pulled up (for use) it doesn't lock - if something hits it, it be going down, like it or not (unless it's hanging)

4) Small pain in the butt to swap out depleted tea light with a new one

Summary:

Item has a lot of potential if the cons above were addressed by the manufacturer. I'd love to see:

1) Either a much better grade of glass sleeve (pyrex, or something hard to break) or a stainless steel mesh that allows light and heat to pass through.

2) A simple twist locking mechanism for the pull up top - pull it up, twist it left or right to lock in (rather like the lips on plastic DVD holders when you buy a bunch of blanks at the store)

3) If it needs a case to survive rough use, include it with the product, you wankers. Sure, charge a couple bucks more, but stop the accessory upsell crap.

So, there ya go.

Your mileage may vary.

Color Name: Aluminum Verified Purchase
Before ordering, test your use with a tea light so you can appreciate just how dim this lantern is. It provides enough light for your dark-adapted eye to keep you from bumping in to things, but thats about it. It is not suitable for detail-oriented tasks like reading, doing dishes, etc. Rigging a foil reflector over the top made a big difference in illuminating my 8x8 tent. This warm light was much nicer than my cold LED light as I read an ebook with my phone on its dimmest setting. The hook at the end of the bail can get too hot to touch, and the candle chamber traps enough heat to liquify all the wax in a full tealight. Bumping the unit (or high wind nudging your tent that the lantern is hanging in) can cause spillage out the bottom holes (not scalding by the time it exits the lantern).

I used to have the regular brass version, but wanted something lighter and more compact. This is it. It seems a little flimsy, not great construction, but should do the job. One plus is, although it says it can store two tealite candles, it actually can store THREE (one in the base and two in the burn chamber, although you'll want to remove the extra tealite candle before use).

A nicely compact candle lantern, but has what I think is a major design fault. Unlike other UCO candle lanterns I own this one does not contain spilt wax. If a something should tilt the lantern enough for the liquid wax to spill out of the tea cup, that hot wax will flow out from the air holes at the bottom and onto anything below the lantern. In previous models of UCO candle lanterns I have used the wax would be trapped in a reservoir at the bottom of the lantern.

In addition to the wax problem, because the candle is positioned closer to the top opening of the lantern, the flame is more prone to extinguishing than the standard model of UCO's tea lantern.

I should also mention that the candles that came with the lantern had thin wicks which did drown out after about an hour of burn time.

I really wanted this lantern to work for the field, but instead it will either go back to Amazon or add to the clutter on my "neat things that almost made it" shelf.
