The worldwide popularity of the tea light tub candle inspired us to create a lantern to make its use safe and convenient. The design of the UCO Mini Lantern does a superb job of utilizing a readily available candle and expanding its capabilities to include outdoor recreation and wider use around the home. Made to the same high standards as the UCO Original Candle Lantern, the patented UCO Mini Lantern features aluminum construction, a glass chimney and a unique candle holder that keeps the tea light candle stable. A specially-designed vent in the base of the lantern provides cool air to supply the flame with needed oxygen. The UCO Mini Lantern is ideal for ultralight hiking, bike touring, world travel and makes home use of the ubiquitous tea light candle much more appealing. Made in USA.
