Coleman Dual Fuel 2-Mantle Powerhouse Lantern
Lantern great Packing Sucked
The lantern was typical Coleman quality. Worked great, and was more fuel efficient than my older Powerhouse. Bass Pro just threw the lantern box in a bigger box and let it bang around inside. By the time I got it the top had unscrewed and some paint was missing from the body of the lantern. It still works fine, but if I had wanted to buy a lantern that looked used I would have gone to a yard sale. Not a multi-million dollar outdoor company. Definately would buy the lantern again, but would try to pick it up locally.

Coleman - A Camping Tradition
My Coleman Powerhouse lantern is going on 29 years of providing illumination for countless camping and fishing trips, as well as for backyard barbeques. Only recently replaced the original generator! The trick to longevity is to keep it clean, don't leave fuel in the tank when not in use, keep it stored in a box or hard carrying case in a dry location, always use fresh fuel, and follow the directions for use. Coleman still offers repair parts on its website, and these lanterns will last a lifetime with care!

I'm in Scouts and needed a good lantern. I have a propane lantern but I just wasn't happy with the light, so I bought this one at Bass Pro. This is the brightest lantern I have seen. Other Scoutmasters commented that it was twice as bright as their Coleman lanterns. This thing really throws out the light and even when I turn it down some, it still puts out a lot of light. This is a great lantern!

Still the BEST!
I grew up with my father having the same coleman fuel lattern year after year, so when it came time for me to get one of my own for my family I purchased this coleman fuel lattern and it gives me the same dependability that my fathers gave us growing up. I know the new craze are those propane latterns and I have friends that have purchased them and I watch as they are always afraid of not having that spare propane tank with them at all times, granted the propane ones work good but I fill the tank of my coleman fuel lattern for a full weekend camping and fishing trip and return home with fuel still in the tank, and we do alot of night fishing so it gets the use! The best peace of mind I can have is if for some reason at 2a.m. out fishing and I run out of fuel its much easier to find gas to fill my lattern then it is to find a propane tank, or batteries for those led ones! Dad taught me well!
