Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little lantern I bought this candle lantern for home and car camping use, and it's exactly what I wanted. I like using it for lighting a small area on a picnic table when I don't want to be blinded by a bright propane lantern. The three candles put off enough light for a game of cards at night, and they last quite a long time. The top metal plate gets VERY hot, and I like to put my metal cup fo hot chocolate on top to keep it warm. I'm sure that you can boil a little water if you leave it on top long enough. I've used the lantern a few times, and I'm still on the original candles. I might spend an extra dollar or two for the citronella refills, but I don't think the beeswax candles are worth the extra $10.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cozy but a bit Bulky I do a lot of bike touring and frequently take this lantern when I camp. I really like the soft, warm light it produces. Like others, I've also used it to warm up my coffee and my tent. It's also great to use on the back porch. Drawbacks are that the light output is diffuse and not very strong. Also, it takes up a lot of space compared to a head lamp, and you have to be careful about protecting the glass that surrounds the candles. When I'm bike camping,I've taken to wrapping the lamp in a piece of foam rubber and then putting it into a nylon bag--so far, no breakage. If I had to choose between taking only this lantern or a head lamp, I'd most likely take the head lamp--but I'd miss the lantern's friendly glow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save the batteries! I use this to conserve battery power of my head-lamp while around camp. My headlamp comes on at full-power and I tend to forget to turn it down a little. At full blast, the batteries only last 3 hours... Candelier to the rescue! The light output is pretty good for only candles. The design of the lantern keeps the flames really steady and flicker free. The burn time is incredible. The candles have lasted for two very long nights, and are nearing there end. The top does get incredibly hot, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I'm hoping this will put out enough heat to take the edge out of the tent when it's time to get out of the sleeping bag on those 20 degree mornings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from eco-friendly camping heat and light source I've had an original UCO candle lantern for about 10 years and still love it. My husband and I received the Candlelier as a wedding gift 6 years ago. It's one of the favorite gifts we've received. We just went camping with two kids, aged 3 and 6 months, the first weekend of June. In MN, early summer nights can still be cold (in the 40s), and we should have brought a heater. However, the Candlelier actually warmed up our tent enough until our body heat got our bags warm. He relit the lantern in the early morning before we got up, and none of us were cold. We will never travel without this item and extra candles!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from gotta love USA quality I have one, and I gave one to my parents. They were skeptical at first, but now they use it on the porch every night during the summer. I use it on the deck. Gives enough light to move about without ruining the atmosphere with a blast of harsh light. With three flickering flames, it's as hypnotic as a fire--without all the messy ash to deal with. It incorporates an old-fashioned feel with streamlined performance. The spring-loaded candle tubes work perfectly and the candles burn evenly. You can't tell from the image or description, but there's a slot in the tubes that shows how much candle is left. Yes--be careful the housing above the flames gets hot. Use common sense and you'll be fine. It is an open flame after all (on that note, I wouldn't even think about taking it in tent). This lantern puts out more light than you would think, thanks to the light reflected by the housing above the flames. If you're familiar with the mini Uco, the Candlelier is 3x as great. Well, not for backpacking, but certainly for RVs, car camping or backyard lounging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lantern, paraffin is fossil fuel I've had one of these for about 10 years. I agree with almost everything Myra said. However, if you're worried about using fossil fuels, be aware that most paraffin wax is produced from crude oil. Setting that aside, this lantern gives you choices to balance light output with duration. For most purposes, one candle is good for a whole evening's use. If you need more light, or want to boil a cup of water, light all three. Spare candles are inexpensive and lightweight. This is ideal for dealing with power outages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No batteries, no fuel, no noise! Does not give out as much light as my battery powered LED lantern, but I hate buying batteries so trade off is fine. The design of this is flawless, spring loaded candles with window to let you know how much is left. Unscrew bottom to replace candles(intuitive)Has handle for hanging. I set my mug of tea on top to keep it warm. Candles lasted two camp nights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Light Source! I have had this item for many years and it has performed up to expectations. As mentioned in previous reviews, do not use in tents and if you do, do not leave it unattended because even though it gives off ample light, it can get very hot, especially on top. Candles work as expected and are fairly reasonably priced. To me, it was well worth the money.

Do I need to purchase Candolier candles when new ones are needed? Can you use generic candles? How tall are the candles?

Asked by: UTDairy
​If they are the correct size, generic candles can be used to replace. The replacement candles are 3 ½ inches tall and 1 ¼ inches diameter.
