This review is from: Coleman Single Mantle Lantern (Sports)
This classic Coleman is a super efficient and really bright lantern. Simple to use and much more economical on 95 RON unleaded than compressed propane lamps. The lamp comes with 2 mantles - easy to tie on but very fragile once burned, I found some mantles online for about £1 each, I doubt the mantles will last too well on a car journey on British roads so spares are a must if you plan to travel. This lamp is clean and long burning. It will give off some soot and fumes until reaching operating temperature. I bought the lamp for use in the garden and for camping in the summer, it will also be useful in the event of power cuts. I am confident using the lamp indoors because although it emits carbon monoxide it must logically be very little due to the economy and efficiency of combustion. Candles also produce CO but I am not aware of any danger other than the obvious risks of fire. Having said that I still wouldn't be in a very confined, unventilated space all night with one of these lit!
