The one on the left is ours and is meant to be water proof. It is good for the table etc.
The next one in we have borrowed from my uncle and are yet to use camping. But i have used it inside and i think it will be great indoors
The next one we were given from my uncle and was told if i could fix it i could have it.. I fixed it and it works well. But am still yet to use.
The gas lantern is an old Gaz Symphony lantern and it has not been used in years. It once gain is my uncles and we are struggling to find replacement glass for it as it is not your normal size. It is 100mm wide and no one can get it.
I am hoping to find new glass for the gas lantern as i would like to use it instead of the fluro lights. Anyone able to tell me what the difference in light is between the glass and the gauze? If i can't find the glass can i cut a gauze one to fit?

my gf is not to keen on us using a gas one or a pump up one as there was a story on '000 heroes' how a mother thought it would be nice to use a lantern instead of house lights for dinner.. she put metho in it and BOOM the thing exploded.
oh ok cool i think the reason for the frosted glass is to make it a more white light. I can get a new glass for it directly from coleman as they have taken over campingaz but its $20 plus shipping.. I can see it getting broken in no time at all so i might just buy the gauze and cut it to fit.
I went the cheaper way and bought the gauze and cut it to fit. Got the fuel for it and a pack of mantles and it works really well. But after use if i put my nose up to it and smell i can smell butane. So i assume that there is a small leak or should they smell after use?
We went camping for the first time in 5 years and took the Coleman NorthStar LP gas latern and expected that it would need a new mantle, but to my surprise it was all ok. One gas cylinder and an extension pole works well. This is also backed up by a COL-LITE 12 volt fluorescent - best of both worlds. As Jo&Kev said you can turn it off at the cylinder and it gives you time to get into bed before the light goes out. As we are getting back into camping after a five year break, I notice the camping stores don't have the variety of gas lights like they had years ago, many more battery powered ones.
