Not that great
I purchased a North Star fuel lantern from Budget camping at Minchinbury NSW. I purchased this lantern as I was going Hunting in North Queensland and was advised this was a good reliable light, lucky for me I took a back up battery operated Dolphin torch.
On arrival at my camp site I fuelled lantern and followed all lighting instruction that were written on lantern. I went to pump light as per instruction only to have pump plunger fly off and land 2 metres from the table. So night number 1 I was without lighting, lucky I had battery operated...Dolphin torch. The next day my friend was able to put plunger back on lantern and as darkness was fast approaching we followed all instructions again. This time plunger worked but the whole lantern caught on fire and nearly burnt down our campsite. Yes you guessed it night 2 I was left using trusty battery operated Dolphin torch. This by the way only cost me $16.99 with battery. Your lantern cost me $189.00 dollars. Nearly 11 time the price of Dolphin torch. The next day we decided to attempt to light lantern again, yet again the whole lantern caught on fire and was more like a petrol bomb than useful light source. So again I was without lighting. The next day we decided that lantern was unsafe so we drained all the fuel from lantern, whilst we were draining fuel the whole ignition system fell out and was in several pieces. So, for 12 nights I was left using $16.99 battery operated Dolphin torch, which worked first time every time.
Questions & Answers
Is premium unleaded reliable to use over time?
How does Northstar EL Dual Fuel light output compare with LPG fueled 200 watt lantern?
No comparison I have both, the LPG lamp is nowhere near as bright even a 400 watt gas lamp isn't as bright.
