Rated 5 out of 5★ by Whatgoesaround1 CLEVER Well made and clever design -- we have frequent power outages in the summer due to thundersorms -- this should really fit the bill -- do not know about replacement candles but will cross that bridge later. 08/10/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by MrsNickels Used one for Hurricane Sandy! Purchased this one as a gift for someone for Christmas...We used one of these with the 9 hour candles and they are FANTASTIC! We were able to leave one on our kitchen table overnight for when we turned our generator off for awhile and everyone could see just enough to get around...very safe as well. My son also loves it for camping. Just make sure the handle is down when the candle is burning because it will get hot! Highly recommended! 12/12/2012
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Cornbeefandcabbage It's just a candle This is not much differt than the tea candle lanterns you can get for $5.00. Since tea candles will burn for three to four hours, they are surely sufficient and much more economical. Candles make a lot of sense during summer camping because they can be a substitute for a campfire for a lot of folks. Like most folks, I like looking into a campfire at night, but in the heat of July I really don't want to be sitting around a fire and hauling or buying firewood is a real inconvenience, so having a good candle or couple of candles or candle lanterns on the picnic table gives us a flame to stare at as we talk and tell stories without the heat and hassle of a campfire.For function beyond that, candle light is not very effective. Consider that even the cheap old-school flashlights put out 70 candle lumen, you can imagine that one candle is not going to give much functional light.If you are going for mood, candles work. If you are looking for function, candles are not the way to go due to flame risk, weight, and output. For light source, there are brighter, safer, cheaper alternatives with LED lights.I think Walmart brings great variety and great pricing for many/most of their products, but some are overpriced. This particular item is overpriced for what it is.I would either recommend the $5.00 tea candle lanters for economy OR if you want to upgrade, get the kind where the glove slides into itself for more compact size 06/11/2012
Rated 3 out of 5★ by WhiskeyCamperinoutdoors Very small lantern for money spent, returned. Purchased this lantern wanting "natural" light not the LED or Fluorescent lighting especially while camping. Was not happy with the size and the cost. The only candle that would fit into this lantern would be the tiny "tea" candles emitting only minimal light. Did not want to pay $70-100 for a gas lamp and trying to maintain a camping and outdoor aesthetic. 10/28/2013

Rated 1 out of 5★ by BudBubba Did not work well Spring gets stuck, wax spills all over compromising parts which then stick together. I would not buy this one again. I would spend more on better quality item. 03/09/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Chevyironman Appears reliable Appears to be reliable and durable. Serves for two purposes. Low lighting while sitting in the front porch, and emergency lighting during a power outage. Great for camping too. 01/09/2014
