Small. Fairly decent quality. includes small funnel and extra wick. Don't have to worry about batteries. Very charming yellowish glow from lamp. Plenty of light to see cards in a card game providing it's on your side of the table. The only thing that would be better is to have more of them. Also gives off heat. Not sure what the run time is on a fill up, but at a normal brightness level I'd expect 6 or more hours. I had difficult time regulating the flame. SOLUTION was to trim the wick like your supposed to. I can imagine if you didn't know to do this like I didn't for the first 2 months, the user would think there was a problem with the lantern and give up on it. Easy to overfill because it is so small. Wish is came in other colors, like red, green, blue. I was about to hang the lantern outside as an ornament because I couldn't keep the flame uniform. I read about trimming wicks so I finally tried that. The wick should be neatly cut in the shape of your finger tip---curved. Once it did that the flame was perfect. I use only lamp oil or tiki-torch fuel. NO LIQUID paraffin. I had to disassemble the lamp after I lost a wick on the inside of the tank. I studied how it was put together before disassembly and it was not difficult to get back together. I would like to compare this to my candle lantern, but I lost the spring for that and it doesn't work like it should anymore with a jerry rigged spring. You can not turn a candle lantern up or down in intensity. It would be advisable to bring some extra lamp oil if you are going on a trip. The oil is also useful in lighting fires. Nice utilitarian piece of equipment. I am able to set the flame very low just to be able to see it and also turn it up to a reasonable light level. Very low tech but effective lamp. It also give off a fair amount of heat. You can still get Dietz lamps like this. I don't have one. They are about the same price but with shipping added you have to add $7 dollars. This is $10 shipped.
