Camping lantern

Im looking for possible a smaller or maybe larger lantern for inside the tent or around camp site. Most that i saw at walmart were d battery powered. I would rather use aa. If thst limits me to a small one that is fine and i wouldnt want to use adapters. I think no more than 3-4 aa’s. Any good reccomened lights. Saw a fenix cl20 and some streamlights but prices are too high for me. Also saw this on amazon

fenixgear.com is liquidating their stock. I bought a Fenix CL20 for $20.

I don’t see Fenix-gear liquidating anything other than that. I paid 59 dollars for a CL25R some time ago, and that’s what Fenix is “liquidating” it for right now.

That’s what this reddit post is claiming. I didn’t check anything else because the CL20 was the only Fenix thing I wanted.

Rayovac seems good. Coleman also has some variants.

If you look on ebay or maybe chinese sites you might find good but no-name lanterns at a very cheap price.

So why necroing a 20 month old topic?

There are OK cheap 18650 lanterns with 350 lumens

Now there are a lot of different clones to that model in aliexpress, some as low as 5$.

I was planning to buy those fenix clones but their light color temperature was cool which I don’t like.
