BioLite BaseLantern XL Review: It turns your campsite into a dance party


Wilderness camping offers a wonderful reprieve from our tech-filled lives. Computer screens and connected commutes give way to mountain-peak sunrises and hikes to secluded lakes. The distance from the rat race is rejuvenating. Then night comes, and technology creeps back in. Propane-powered lanterns barely shed enough light for you to see what you’re eating for dinner, so you pull out your phone to waste its battery making sure you don’t trip over something. Flashlights, headlamps and electric lanterns are all great, but only if you remembered to charge them before leaving the house.
