Re: [AT-L] Rechargeable lanterns

     My girlfriend gave me one of those laterns a couple of years ago. We 
     rarely go "car camping", so I actually haven't used it much, but my 
     experiences so far with it have been great. I got the latern with 
     batteries built in, and it comes with a wall charger. It provides 
     great light for playing cards on a table outside or going for a walk 
     or whatever. I've already had my money's worth!
     Good Luck,

Do you think I could get a Coleman Rechargeable lantern in my backpack?  Do 
you think I could convince passersby at roadheads to let me recharge it?
Yeah, I'm being silly!  I'm really wanting to know if anyone has had any 
experience using this lantern while car camping.  You know,......at a regular 
campground.  We have been sort of wanting a lantern to use while NOT on the 
trail.  The only rechargeable that seems to be on the market is the "made in 
China" Coleman.  It makes me wonder if they are much good.  Perhaps they 
don't hold a charge. It's not like I want to burn a lantern all night or 
something (Wanna "hit" on the city campers.  What a list *we* could create!!)
Are there any suggestions for other types of lanterns that we'd only be using 
maybe 1/2 hr. that gives more light than a flashlight, but less than those 
lanterns that can light up an entire campground.
