LP Lanterns

11 posts in this topic

Anyone have the two mantle Ozark LP lantern from Walmart...how's it working?

Does two mantles on a lantern mean more light than a one mantle unit?

If you are looking for a lantern that puts off alot of light and heat ---

I've found the Coleman 'NorthStar' product to be the way to go. On warmer fishing days, I don't even need to light my other heater because the lantern takes care of me.

On high though, it does tend to chew through a fair amount of propane.

Overall, I am very happy with the product.

Yes two mantles will give off more light. I would be skeptical about on of the Ozarks they look pretty cheap to me. You can get the regular Coleman 2 mantle propane latern for about $30 w/ a hard side case. That is what I have and it has worked just fine for the last 3 years. The only thing that I have had to fix was the globe and the mantles. Dropping them doesn't really help though. You can find one of these at any Wal-Mart, Fleet Farm pretty much any where. Good luck.

If I saw correctly, the Coleman Northstar is a one mantle lantern. It maybe be a longer mantle thou. That's why I asked the question about one or two mantles being the brightest. Thanks for the info.

/i was wondering the same thing when I looked at it yesterday at Target. Is it worth the cost or do I stick w/ my current lanterns? I have a couple of old coleman propane. Also does the yellow globe come standard? The display model had a yellow globe but the box showed clear.

I recently got the new coleman 1 mantel lp lantern. It is a great little lantern. The small size means it can fit in my rod bag and it ran for over 10 hours the other day on one cylinder and still had fuel left. The best deal is the price, $17 at K-mart. They give plenty of light for my needs. Has anyone else tried these and what do you think?

Dave, the Northstar (large single mantle) is Coleman's brightest lantern including all their 2 mantle models.

Yes, the Northstar puts out more light than the two-mantle models.

I just got one of the real small lanterns the backpack model from Wal-mart single mantle seems to work good lightand fits in your boot upright so the mantle should last a long time and it is a double tie deal so should stay in place. Mine is a Colman and the package says it has a lifetime warrante for about 17$ didn't figure I could go to wrong.

The nOrth Star single mantel lantern does indeed put out more light then a two mantel white gas model. And when the igniter is set right, it will start the lantern amazingly fast.
It does suck propane on high. But it is adjustable.
Never the less, I still have my white gas double mantel coleman.

    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any? 
    • When mine get caked I nuke em on the gas grill for about 15 minutes. easy peasy  
    • I agree with purpleflloyd..........seasoning. I MIGHT use a grill brush twice a year that's it. 
    • Well first off you would probably need a permit but I would think 1000.00 should take care of it   
    • Auuuug, that suks!  Really nice area up there.
