Kerosene Lantern: The Outdoor Alternative to Tiki Torches & Candles

17 Aug

If you’re like most people, you probably enjoy spending loads of time outdoors during these fantastic and warm summer months. Summer is already winding down, but don’t let that slow you down from enjoy the last month of so of fabulous summer weather. A lot folks turn to tiki torches or candles when they are looking for non-electric natural light in their backyards or camp sites. At Makais.com, we have an alternative to suggest! This is an old classic that is making a comeback: The Kerosene Lantern. This type of lantern has been used for literally 100’s of years now. It has stood the test of time as a reliable, functional, and economical source of light. It is a great lantern for backyard gatherings, evening picnics, camping, or anytime you want some inexpensive light outdoors! Kerosene lanterns are also a really great item to have on-hand in case of emergency! If you live in an area with earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes, or other natural disasters: you will be happy to have a few of these around with disaster strikes and your electricity is not working.

This is the classic design, kerosene lantern. The lantern measures 12″ tall and made of metal with a wired covered glass globe, full adjustable cotton wick. Holds 8 fl. oz.
Burn Time: approximately 23 hrs (medium flame)
Now, unfortunately we cannot sell you the actual kerosense you’ll need to operate the kerosene lantern. (It’s illegal to ship kerosene) So, I’d suggest you pick up a nice big jug of kerosene at your local hardware or home improvement store. Usually, a big container of kerosene will only run about $5 and will last you for years. Buy of few of these online from us, grab some kerosense at your local hardware store, and you will have years of outdoor light!  🙂 todd
