This is a larger version of the famous UCO Candle Lantern. It is a three-candle lantern and is ideal for backcountry applications, as well as cabins, camps, and for use in the home during an emergency. The heat-shield on top provides a stove-like surface that can be used to boil small amounts of water, melt snow, or keep foods warm. A stainless steel handle makes the Candlelier easy to hang and carry. A unique spring loaded candle tube keeps the flame height constant, with a small viewing window shows how much candle remains. Each candle burns up to nine hours. A sturdy three-legged base helps stabilize the lantern on uneven surfaces. Measures 8" high x 4" wide. Weighs (with 3 candles): 1 lb. 5 oz.
