Nice Little Camp Light

I freely admit that I am a flashlight freak. When you are in dark places and that one guy saves the day because he was so much of a boy scout he packed a light..... I am that boy scout. When preparing for my last adventure I wanted a small freestanding lantern type light to use in camp or in the tent and I settled on the Kelty Lumaspot Mini. I have larger lanterns that are gas, or propane or run on heavy D cell batteries but I wanted something compact that ran on AA batteries. I always have the smaller batteries but have more than once been left hanging because of needing the larger ones. This keeps everything in my camp running on the same size so I only have one thing to remember to pack.
The Lumaspot caught my eye because of its ability to be a decent spot flashlight as well. The top pivots back and forth to allow for use as a flashlight on a stand or to be hung from its hanger. This is especially handy when setting up camp, cleaning fish, cooking or anything you need both hands for. The light is 2 levels and runs for 50 hours on high and 100 hours on low. It provided plenty of light in my tent without being annoyingly bright. The only “scratch my head” thing on it is the small colored LED to the side. It can be red, blue or green and can cycle through the colors in a sort of disco fashion. It offers very little light and truthfully in my fishing camps I have no need for “mood” lighting. I am not sure that was the most thought out part of this little lantern. That is about the only downside to it though, so far I am pretty pleased with its performance.
