4.0 out of 5 stars Received silver, effective lamp and good for price, 27 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Toolzone Large Paraffin Oil Hurricane/Storm Camping Lantern (Misc.)
Effective, slightly cheaply made but it's at a pretty good price, so can't really argue. The picture showed a blue lamp, but the one I received was actually silver (see images uploaded to customer images section) - not a a problem though, it looks nice in silver too.

I put citronella oil in mine as I wanted it to keep bugs away as well as provide soft light - burnt well, although did produce a lot of soot the first time; I think some of that was from the wick being a bit too high, and possibly also from newness (paint smoking a bit, perhaps). After cleaning the glass and using it again (on the same oil) but keeping the flame a bit lower, it burned cleanly. (To remove the glass to clean, pull the top lifting metal bit upwards against the spring - that will allow the glass portion to be lifted out.)

Don't overfill the oil tank - I see other reviewers complained about leakage, I've not had any problems yet. The burner part clips on but doesn't seal against the tank, so if it's not kept vertical it would leak.

All in all, an effective lamp for the price, and takes normal 10mm flat wickes.
