Olight hit another home run with the newest Olantern! The Olantern Classic 2 Pro is a classy looking LED lantern that’s rechargeable and features a retro style that brings back warm memories. While not just for lighting up your home or campsite, the Olantern is efficient during a power outage. It features 360 degrees of light as well as the ability to dim down to a nice orange for ambiance or a bright white light with the twist of a knob. It pairs well with the Olight Obulb to give you more lighting options.
Olight knew what they were doing when they designed the Olantern Classic 2 Pro. The vintage style gives it a nice classic look with built-in Olight technology to give you an LED camping light that can last up to 7.5 days on 1 charge. In fact, it will likely last longer than your camping trip. My Olantern stays in the camper at all times and even doubles as an extra light for my home office. Copper is my favorite finish, but Olight has plenty of options to choose from.
Doubles as Emergency Power Bank
The Olantern can be used as an emergency power bank as well with 18W discharging to power your smartphones, iPads and other electronics. In retrospect, this rechargeable lantern can actually be classified as part of your emergency gear due to its ability to provide long-lasting light and its phone charging capabilities. My kids love to use it to charge their tablets when I’m not using it. This is a great product to keep in your camping gear, RV, camper or home just in case the power goes out.
Dual Warm Lights to Choose From
One of our favorite features of the Olantern is the ability to choose from two warm lights via stepless dimming. It starts off with a warm orange glow that sets a mood and a simple turn of the knob slowly switches to a warm white light that’s great for reading or cooking at night. The light is perfect for numerous tasks around the house or at the campsite. We keep ours in the RV while we travel.
Tough and Resistant
The Olight Olantern Classic 2 Pro isn’t one of those cute products that look good but break easily. In fact, it’s made with an all-metal housing that’s tough enough to use daily and to bring on hunting or camping trips. It’s also IPX5 rated which means it can even handle some rain and the occasional water splashes. I wouldn’t submerge the Olantern, but a few drops of water here and there won’t hurt it.
Carry, Hang or Place
The Olantern Classic Pro functions as a nostalgic piece and can be hung to provide light just like an old camping lantern. Set up one of these next to your RV, campsite or home office and you have a nice addition to your workspace. You can also carry it by its sturdy handle and use it as a portable light source or you can set it on flat surfaces to light up an area.
The Olight Olantern Classic 2 Pro rechargeable camping lantern is one of those products that don’t come around often. It has a multitude of practical uses that brings a little nostalgia with it. The Olight technology that’s housed within the Olantern is cutting-edge and the fact that you can use it as a power bank to charge your electronics while camping gives it a top rating in our opinion.
