Once again Camping Bob does his best to show how to change the mantles on a Coleman gas camping lantern – but could this be a demonstration FAIL instead?
He does have the procedure straight … but there seems to be some safety issues using a blowtorch in the actual implementation.

Camping Lantern Replacement and Repair Parts
More camp lighting choices:
Energizer Carabiner LED Tent Light
- Offers three light modes: 360-degree area light, high/low, and directional flashlight
- Designed to easily clip on anywhere you need it
- 50 lumens of light output (that’s brighter than you think)
- Run time of 5 hours on 4AAA Energizer Max Alkaline batteries (included), water resistant – IPX4
To repeat… it comes with batteries included!
Gus has one of these carabiner lights. It is a fantastic “utility” or specific purpose light. You can hang it anywhere; from your belt or backpack, tent pole or tarp line, or even a tree branch. 50 lumens is a lot more light than you think it is. On “area light” setting it will provide a wide glow of light all around, and it also gets the job done as a flashlight.
This is one new camp light you will love every time you use it.
