Alpkit Glowe and Trinity Bright LED Camping Lights

It is always hard to find that perfect camping lantern that not only gives off enough light to read, cook, relax etc. but is also portable, does not require a large charging unit and is easy to pack and store. Well these small yet powerful lanterns from Alpkit.com might just be the solution you are looking for.

Glowe LED Camping Lantern

Compact and lightweight, the Glowe lantern fits perfectly into any backpackers sack. The retractable light chimney rests comfortably in the hand when using the Glowe as a torch. Then, when erected, the light chimney transforms the super bright beam into a secure unfocussed glow of a lantern. Spreader feet provide stability when the Glowe is stood on a surface whilst the foldaway hook allows the Glowe to be clipped into a tent or on to a convenient branch. Powered by 3xAAA batteries the Glowe can provide the comfort and security of light for over 50 hours.

Driven by 4 AA batteries, included, the lantern will last for well over 100hrs when used on low power. The retractable light chimney allows the Trinity to be used as a hand held torch as well as a lantern.

Nestled inside the base is a tripod mounting point allowing the lantern to be screwed onto a tripod as well.

What did we think?

We were sent a couple of these lanterns to test and after getting away for a night in the tent, have decided that these are now an essential part of our camping kit.

The lanterns are small, tough, easy to use and bright. You can use both as a torch, and by simply pulling the top from the bottom they expand into a lantern design and emit a bright and wide light filling the tent. The amount of light given off was certainly enough to read from and perfect for using electronic tablets and the like.

Both designs of lanterns have hanging hooks which fold flat on the top enabling one to hang them from the roof of the tent, plus they both have expandable feet allowing you the chance to place them on a table to shine the light upwards.

As these run off four AA batteries there is not need to carry around a charging unit, or have a need for battery power or electric hookup, just carry a spare set of batteries and you will not get stuck in the dark.

Overall we were most impressed and would not go away without these in the bag.
