I you are base camping, get a Tilley lamp, burns parafinn/kerosene, 50p
gives about 8 hours of light.

I have a choice of 3 of these: 200cp & 500cp Solar (Petromax copy) and a
300cp Bialaddin 300X.
For illuminating a large area they are superb but no use inside a tent. A
gas lantern is more useful if you want light for short periods.
A Vapalux or Bialaddin is way better than any recent Tilley. Modern Tilleys
are crap compared to the stuff they made up to the end of the 1950s.
