Color me interested – been looking for a good camping light, and your OP post seems to lay out everything well as far as features and design choices go.

The only thing I’m left wondering about is what the estimated weight will be like, given a full metal body and quad 18650. Hoping it’d still be suitable for backpacking and not just car camping =D

It will not be a backpacking lantern by my standards. My guess is 1.5-2 pounds. I would love to see a nice lantern running off one 18650 or even one 18350 cell. For backpacking trips where I look to trim ounces off my pack weight I am always looking for tools that serve multiple purposes. With this is mind, I always end up leaving the UCO lantern at home and just adding a diffuser to my kit that fits the light I am bringing. I know that the light from this lantern will be much nicer than my diffuser tip provides, but sometimes sacrifices must be made.

For me, this will be a lantern for hunting and fishing trips and use around the house and cabin.

Way off topic, but, do you play volleyball? I was at a volleyball tournament a few years ago, it might have been USA Nationals in New Orleans, and an adult mens team named Mornin Wood was playing.

Ha! That’s a good name. No, that wasn’t me. I haven’t been using this name for that long.

Not at all, its been slow progress as i have been dealing with some rough months to push on this at the moment. I hope to try to get the ball rolling soon, (if the rest of the team have not abandoned this project already due to other projects ongoing or other reasons atm.

Excited to see some movement on this project. I have not been able to find a good LED lantern for any price.

Super interested this as long as it stays with a very warm tint that’s near incandescent and price is reasonable. Please add me to the list for 1 to be notified when pricing is available.

I spoke to some friends about this over the holidays. Put me down for 3 more.

I think this project really hits on a big missing niche in the market.
