Today we’re looking at Snow Peak’s Hozuki LED Candle Lantern; definitely a unique lighting piece for camping or backpacking. The maximum brightness on the Hozuki lantern is 100 lumens which is plenty bright for campground settings, use inside a tent and possibly backpacking. There is a simple to use button; press it once here on the top and you can see it goes right to its maximum brightness and offers a really nice effect through the lightweight silicone globe. The second setting… and a third setting depending on how much brightness you need or how long you want the battery to last; the lower the setting the greater efficiency on that battery. Additionally, if you start from the top and hold the button down it will give you a true dimmer switch capability and you can decide exactly where you need it. The most unique setting on the Hozuki lantern is an actual candle setting. So, a double tap on the button makes the lantern react similarly to what you’d find in a candle. Not necessarily the most functional setting in the world but nice for ambiance and fun. There is a hook and a lightweight cord attached here to the top of the lantern that makes it very simple to hang inside a tent or at a campsite from a tree branch or anything that fits in the wide opening hook at the top, making this a great light source for your campground or inside the tent. In order to change the batteries, simply take off that silicon globe, turn the housing and you can see it’s powered on four AA batteries. Still, keeps this relatively lightweight, 6 ounces for the entire unit which is minimal weight for a camping trip and certainly makes it a potential option for backpacking as well. Here, beneath the hook, there is a USB port should you have a power source that can run electricity from it to the lantern, it will bypass the batteries, saving them, and power the Hozuki lantern right from that.
