    How about those candle type lamps for inside the tent??..are they safe?...do they get incredibley hot?...what would you recommend for interior tent lighting?????
    I have only used it once. It was warm enough (no not incredible hot) to eliminate the cold and dampness in my tent. It was safe enough that when I forgot about it in the morning and knocked it from the overhead tent loop, it fell to the floor and immediately went out. I was skeptical and only carried, not used it for about a year, until it was so cold I had to try it. It passed both tests. My friend who gave it to me has been using one for years with no problems. I guess it could work for interior tent lighting but I wear a LED headlamp that illuminates the tent just fine. Truth is, I only need a bit of lighting to find my PJs before turning in for the night.

    On my list to get is a very small battery LED lantern like Holly mentions. One to hang near but outside my tent so that when I return to my campsite in the dark, it will that much easier for me to find.

    They can get very hot. I'd not use one in a tent that I care about. Think melted plastic if it falls over.

    The orginial candle lanterns that many campers have used for years to light their tents and add a little warmth can now be had with a little LED light that shines from the bottom also.
    Being an Airhead it would be hard for me to give up my original candle light for this new technology, but it would be nice.
