Your friends won't believe the illumination coming from your Coleman Premium Powerhouse Dual Fuel Lantern. They'll marvel over 800 lumens of 360° light. This outdoor companion runs on either Coleman Liquid Fuel or unleaded gasoline. The Dual Fuel design is less expensive to run, because it uses less fuel than propane-powered lanterns. One tank of fuel will power the lantern for up to seven hours on high. Find just the right light with an adjustable knob that allows you to dim the brightness level from its highest to as low as you need it. This two-mantle lantern is perfect for camping, hunting, tailgating and in cases of emergency. It includes a 3-year limited warranty.
Light up your campsite for up to 14 hours at a stretch with this Coleman duel-fuel Powerhouse lantern. Burning up to 25 percent brighter than Coleman's 285 series lanterns, the Powerhouse is a great choice for evening meals, games, or reading while at the campsite. The lantern is powered by your choice of 2 pints of Coleman fuel or unleaded gas, so you don't need to scramble for one fuel if you have plenty of the other on hand. The light also offers a two-mantle design for better lighting (the lantern comes with two standard No. 21 mantles). Perhaps best of all, the lantern lasts for hours once the sun sets, with a 7-hour burn time on high and a 14-hour burn time on low. Designed to light easily with matches, the Powerhouse lantern comes with a filter funnel.
More than 100 years ago, a young man with an entrepreneurial spirit and a better idea began manufacturing lanterns in Wichita, Kansas. His name was W.C. Coleman, and the company he founded would change life in America. A man plagued with such poor vision he sometimes had to ask classmates to read aloud to him, Coleman saw a brilliant light in 1900 in a drugstore window that stopped him in his tracks. He inquired about the light inside and discovered he was able to read even the small print on a medicine bottle by the illumination. The lamps had mantles, not wicks, and were fueled by gasoline under pressure instead of coal oil. Soon afterward, Coleman started a lighting service that offered a "no light, no pay" clause--a big step forward for merchants who were burned by inferior products that rarely worked--and drew substantial interest from businesses that wanted to keep their lights on after dark.
In the ensuing years, Coleman expanded its product line well beyond lanterns. The company's current catalog is thick with products that make spending time outdoors a pleasure. There are coolers that keep food and drinks cold for days on end, comfortable airbeds that won't deflate during the night, a complete line of LED lights that last for years, powerful portable grills that cook with an authentic open-grill flame, and much, much more. Coleman has truly fashioned much of our outdoor camping experience, and expects to do so for generations to come.

The light output from this lantern really is amazing -- 1,107 lumens is a LOT of light and MUCH brighter than my old lantern -- and although the hiss brings back fond wooded memories, it's much quieter than I expected. The gentle sssssss is actually quite soothing. And giving it a few pumps on occasion is a fun part of the outdoor experience. It also adjusts down in completely variable settings to a warm, dim glow that's just perfect for ending the evening around the campfire, enjoying a toasted marshmallow, and watching the embers die down before hitting the sleeping bag.
Although propane is convenient it doesn't perform as well in low temperatures or high altitudes, and Coleman liquid fuel is much more economical to use. One gallon of fuel is equal to about four and a half bottles of propane, so I figure in current Walmart dollars, I spend about $10 for same amount of performance I would get from $18 worth of propane. It adds up. Plus the one container is much easier to transport and store without the recycling headaches of the propane canisters.
Since it's dual fuel, it will also run on unleaded gasoline. Although I would not use it by preference because of the ethanol in today's fuel that breaks down so quickly and attracts water, part of my reason for purchasing this in addition to camping is emergency preparedness, and the likely availability of unleaded gas in a pinch is a lot greater than that of propane cylinders. Propane doesn't degrade in the bottle which is a plus, but the seven year life span of unopened Coleman Fuel is good enough for me. I can rotate it out more often than that and have fun while doing it.
Yes, this lantern will work with the auxiliary flint igniter that can be picked up for about $4. It doesn't fit perfectly, and the addition of a couple of extra washers would probably make a better installation, but I was able to mount it to the side of one of the oblong match holes just as it came and make it work with no problem. A thing to note is that if you are not using the igniter, matches are a requirement. A long BBQ type lighter will not fit into the hole. Longer fireplace matches with the extra reach are really good, but regular ol' Diamond Strike Anywhere Matches work just fine as long as you hold them by the end. Those mantles are quite a ways up there.
BTW, for any fueled lantern, always carry extra mantles. They're cheap, easy to install if one gets damaged, and can make the difference between enjoyment and disappointment. I've always used the tie-on type, but the clips-on type are a lot easier to install and will be what I use from now on.
This is a great purchase and I anticipate many years of use.
Now, when the power goes out, I simply open some windows and big sliding door and use this lantern safely inside. It lights up my whole kitchen and living room at once with enough residual light to bend around the hallway to the bathroom. For the price, I wish it included the plastic case and a bunch more wicks but that's not a criticism of the actual lantern.
By the way, I still don't get how a couple of cotton socks glow brighter than the sun.
Didn't see any kits that included the case for this lantern. Make sure you pick the one that fits lantern models 220, 290, 295. There are differences all though they all look pretty much the same.
