Default Battery powered lanterns?

I've been using a gas powered coleman lantern for light in the Clam Hub, but the trip out to the spot has resulted in a few broken mantels, and the light could be a bit brighter for these old eyes.

Considering LED's are suppose to use less power and are brighter than the old style battery lanterns, I was thinking of trying one.

Any suggestions?
TIA

I've got one of these (the 530 lumen version) and like it.

Thanks Terry, I have no idea what brightness 530 is, but is it bright enough to hang from the Clams ceiling and see what your doing (tying jigs/etc)?

You coming to the sports show?

Since I've never tried tying jigs in a Clam, I'm not qualified to answer that question. But hey, for $30, give it a try.

NW Sports Show is on the calendar, so there's hope.

This is what I use:

https://www.amazon.com/Wolo-6000-See-More/dp/B01DDCSOI6

It is the exact same light as this one (just a different decal):

http://tigerlights.com/i-23182070-re...tegory:1180020

Rechargeable LED (110V or car adapter)
900 Lumens (very bright)
Lithium battery (light doesn't dim as battery wears, it just shuts off, so you maintain full brightness all the time)
Magnetic base (or hang by handle)
Quick re-charge (1 to 1.5 hours)
Solid 3 hours on High Power / 4 hours on Low


I have two of these and love them...use them all the time. They are comparable to a 300W halogen light. Only downfall for night fishing may be the 3-4 hour battery life if you are fishing all night.

Clam makes a led hub light as well as one with a fan built in as well. Thought about getting the fan one to help keep condensation down.

x2 on the Rayovac lantern. I have used one for reading when we're tent camping, so I think it will work well inside an ice shack.

The battery life would be the killer, but the 300w might be nice for occasion lights like when trying to tie jigs.

Got one, the fan does help but the light is pretty dim when trying to light a 4000 Clam, good for just basic lighting though.
I still get moisture on the windows, but at least the it moves warm air down, makes for more even heat.

Probably the one I'll get, luckily they're cheap enough you can always by two if needed.

Thanks all.

I have the Coleman Quad. It is awesome. It has detachable LED lights, so if someone needs to walk outside to the biffy, you just disconnect one of the packs and go. Used it every night (8) in our Colorado elk hunting cabin - hung 2 from hooks and provided great light for a room about 15x20.
