On Sale Now: A Super-Innovative Camping Lantern

Thanks to an array of functions that can be controlled from your phone, BioLite’s innovative BaseLantern XL is perfect for use on the trail, in the backyard and inside too.


On a recent night in Brooklyn, a group of friends took advantage of the warmer weather and gathered in a rare parcel of lawn amongst the brownstone and brick for a cookout. As the sun set behind the skyscrapers to the west and details of their cheeseburgers and spare ribs became less-perceivable, the hostess brought out a geometric lantern that looked nothing like the old Colemans her family used to take camping Upstate.

The group was immediately impressed. The light — BioLite’s BaseLantern XL — illuminated the assembly and urged the feast to continue. Once the plates were replaced with a few additional bottles and cans, the hostess marked the shift and simultaneously awed her guests by adjusting the lantern’s settings to emit a constantly-changing rainbow spectrum of LED. That, she was able to accomplish from an app in her phone, which, for the record, was refilling its battery via a USB port in the lantern’s casing.

When the crowd finally succumbed to the lateness of the hour and the persistent flocks of mosquitos, she brought the lantern back inside and extinguished one of its sides to reserve battery and direct its radius for use as a bedside reading lamp.

Its versatility was as undeniable as its value; which normally sits at $130. Right now though, in preparation for the upcoming Independence Day holiday, BioLite is offering a 15 percent discount that can be accessed by entering the code FIREWORKS at checkout. The code works for BioLites other products like its wood-fueled pizza oven — see the full offering here but note that some new items aren’t included in the sale.
