The UCO LED Kit allows you to update any Original UCO Candle Lantern to gain an extra function from their lantern, enabling it to work as a flashlight as well. This kit allows you to attach a battery-powered LED light in the base of the lamp. You simply replace the existing base (which holds the candle) with this LED Kit. You still have a candle on the inside of the lantern, but now you also have a LED light which shines down from the bottom. The batteries can last for up to 40 hours of use, providing you with a long-term source of light suitable for many activities both indoors and out. The LED Kit provides a longer bail to replace the one on your Original Lantern, so it fits over the new base when not in use. As an additional benefit, the LED Kit does not need to be attached to the lantern for it to operate. Simply press the tabs on each side of the clear housing and it detaches from the outer black housing. You now have an LED flashlight that can be carried in your pocket, or a free-standing light with a fold- out stand.
