To Be An Enthusiastic Camper With Olantern

To Be An Enthusiastic Camper With Olantern

There was a time when campers prided themselves on 'getting back to nature' and living the simple life, sleeping under the stars with just the basics for cooking and washing. You can consider an Olantern, and it's worth buying one if you plan to stay camping in one place for nights pure with cold air and lit with stars.

The Inspiration Of Olantern’s Creation

    The use of oil lamps began thousands of years ago and continues to this day, although their use is less common in modern times. Oil lamps are a form of lighting and were used as an alternative to candles before the use of electric lights.

    Starting in 1780, the Argand lamp quickly replaced other oil lamps still in their basic ancient form. These in turn were replaced by the kerosene lamp in about 1850. In small towns and rural areas, and the latter continued in use well into the 20th century, until such areas were finally electrified and light bulbs could be used.

    Today, the history of lighting with oil lamps has been rewritten. With the development of LED, our life has a new light source. The traditional shape, coupled with modern technology, fascinates people who like the outdoors and camping, and let the generation that has grown up nostalgic for it.

The Company That Olantern Provides

   I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life!

   To put to rout all that was not life...

   And not when I came to die, discover that I had not lived...

   ---Walden; or, Life in the Woods

    An ownership experience is essential to a successful camping trip. The peace and comfort of your desired rest dependent on the arrangement of the scene. Put a pot of ground coffee, take to lake by your boats to fish or reading in the shade of the trees... It cannot be less with a perfect camp lamp as evening approached.

STAYcation? The must have Olight's to bring with you

STAYcation? The must have Olight's to bring with you

If you're exploring the great outdoors this summer, we've got you covered

With Summer just around the corner, lockdown restrictions easing, and a sense of normality returning to our countries, many people are making those last-minute plans for a summer Staycation. I mean, why not? The British Isles have some of the most beautiful scenery to offer of anywhere in the world. Whether you are traveling the iconic Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland, North Coast 500 of Scotland, Snowdonia in Wales, the wonderful Lake District of England or Northern Irelands' beautiful coastline, you will be sure to see breath-taking views and some of the world’s most impressive roads. So, if you are touring, glamping, boating, caravanning, camping or even just hiking, we have you covered with our pick of must have Olight's to make that trip a little easier.


Since releasing our Obulb at the end of last year, this powerful little orb of light has been one of the most popular Olights ever produced. Packing 4 different lighting modes, 56 Hours runtime, 1.5m drop test and an IPX7 rating into something that is smaller than a tennis ball, well that is just a recipe for success right there.

Using the Obulb could not be easier, modes are cycled through the built-in button on the bottom, giving you light instantly when you need it. Since it comes with a handy metal disc backed with 3M, you can place this little fella just about anywhere thanks to the magnetic base of the Obulb. Grab yourself an Ohook and make it even easier to have this light exactly where you need it. We recommend picking up of these little beasts, or better yet, grab yourself 2 or 3.


You guys had been asking us for this for a long time, and rather than rush something out, we took the time and produced something we knew would rival the biggest hitters in the lantern game. We have 360-degree light in 3 different modes, a rubberised curved base for stability on uneven surfaces, up to 80 hours run time and even motion detection to help you find it in the dark!

When you need some light for your campsite, a walk through the woods, or reading your favourite book while you listen to crashing waves of the nearby beach, the Olantern has got you covered. Even when you do not need all that white light, you can simply swap out the module for a unique flaming style one that is to be honest, quite comforting. We love the Olantern, and so will you.

Baton 3 Premium Edition

One of our most recent releases was the Baton 3, a 1200 lumen perfect EDC light following in the footsteps of the extremely popular S1R II. But that was not all, we released the special ‘Premium Edition’ of the Baton 3 which included a wireless charging case. This sleek, sturdy, pocketable case can charge your Baton 3 or S1R II up to 3.7 times. Prefect when you’re off the grid and don’t always have access to power.

We found this light was more than enough for those late evening strolls through the hills, searching for firewood or finding those loose tent pegs in the dark. Despite its size, it packs a punch and the ability to just pop it back in its charging case gives you the peace of mind that you know it will be ready, fully charged, when you need it. It’s a must have for us.

Need a bit more ‘oomph’?

Everyone’s needs are different and depending on what you are getting up to on your adventure you might need something that little bit more powerful. The Seeker 2 Pro is one of our most popular flood style lights, offering an impressive 3200 lumens and 320m of throw this compact companion is sure to meet your needs. Another big hitter is the newly released Marauder 2, offering an astounding 14000 lumen output and a remarkable 800m throw with the flick of a switch. Back that up with the ability to use it as a power bank, and well, it might be only thing you’ll bring with you. Wherever you are off to this summer, don’t forget to bring your Olights with you. Send us some snaps of your trip and let us know what you think is an essential Olight for our next outing.

We hope you have found this blog both interesting and helpful, let us know what you would like to see in future blogs, maybe you would like to write one yourself? Get in touch.

My Rating



Camping is one of the best outdoor experiences and for me camping in the winter tops the lot… there’s nothing quite like the feeling of a crisp winter morning to ease your worries and to become truly one with nature!

A lot of people who have never camped before or only do the occasional summer camp, think that the idea of winter camping is absolutely crazy and I’ve had plenty of people tell me that…

However I beg to disagree – as long as you have the right equipment, camping in the winter rates with the best outdoor activities you can experience.

But the key is to have the right equipment, if you don’t – then it will quickly become a miserable time that you will never want to experience again.

In the winter it tends to get dark early – so if you want to be able to still function during those dark hours, then you are going to need a good light to enable you to see what you

I’m going to be looking at the Olight Olantern camping light to see if it really is a useful addition to your camping equipment to brighten up those long winter nights…


The Olantern comes with two interchangeable light sources – a high performance neutral white LED and an ambient flickering flame.

It’s powered by four 3.7V 18500 1900mAh rechargeable lithium-ion batteries (built-in), which can give around 1500 charging cycles.

The weight is only 347g, which is quite light for a lantern and it’s also compact with a height of just under 14cm and a diameter of just under 7cm.

As with the majority of Olight lights – charging occurs using Olight’s signature magnetic charging cable which attaches to the magnetic area at the base of the lantern.

My Impressions

Light Quality

The Olight Olantern - Portable Camping Lantern has an impressive LED white light that produces a uniform 360º light distribution.

Mode 1 (360 lumens) is very bright and will really light up your campsite at night.

Mode 2 (120 lumens) is sufficient for most campsite settings and gives enough light to be able to see, but not too bright so as to take away from the night-time camping feeling.

Mode 3 (30 lumens) is useful for use in a smaller, closed setting – such as inside a small tent.

The neutral white LED can be interchanged for an ambient flickering flame to give a more relaxed, party like feel, share your good times with family or friends.


Charging the Olantern is very straightforward and takes place via Olight’s signature magnetic charging cable that is used on the majority of Olight’s lights.

This method of charging is very unique and simple, yet extremely practical – the magnet at the base of the lantern easily attracts the charging base and can be done with one hand.

There is a standard USB on the other end that can be used with any USB plug or portable battery.

The magnetic pad on the cable has a charging light next to it that lights up red when charging and green once fully charged and it takes 7 hours to fully charge the batteries from flat.


Power Button & Modes

The power button is located on the side of the torch and has a motion-sensitive battery indicator that fades on and off, this allows the lantern to be located in the dark.

A short press of the power button switches the lantern on and off.

To cycle through the three modes, switch the lantern on and then hold down the power button.

When switched on the Olantern will return to the mode it was on when it was last switched off.

The battery indicator also shows the battery level as indicated below:

The lantern can also be locked by pressing and holding the power button, while it is off, for a few seconds – pressing and holding it again unlocks it. When the lantern is locked, the power button battery level indicator will light up red when pressed.



The base is made of a texturised rubber that really grips to any surface and prevents slipping.

The rest of the main body is made of a tough plastic material that gives the impression of being very resistant to knocks and falls.

Hanging Hook

The hanging hook is a useful addition for carrying or if you want to hang the lantern from a tree branch or hook.

It’s wrapped in silicone to stop it slipping and I found it to stay in place, even on a horizontal protrusion.


I was really impressed with the Olantern – it’s very well-made and has the feel and look of an extremely premium product.

Olight always seem to think of the small details to make their products that extra bit useful and the Olantern is no exception…

From the motion sensitive battery indicator to enable you to locate the lantern in the dark to the rubber base that grips to any surface.

It’s these small attention to details that really makes the Olantern stand out from the crowd and leads me to say that it would definitely be a useful addition to anyone’s camping equipment.

I will certainly be taking mine on every camping trip, especially my favourite winter ones.

The Olight Olantern is available from Olight UK

I hope you’ve found this review useful.
