    Here is my unused Trangia Lantern No. 83. These were manufactured between 1980-1998 by Trangia in Trångsviken, Sweden.

    That is a nice lantern. The amber toned chimney makes it a bug-light. We don't see those Trangias in the US.
    UCO's Mini candle lantern uses a ''tea light'' flat candle. The problem of that type is the wax melts inside the shallow can, and with no ''freeboard'' hot wax spills all over -- at the slightest bounce from wind, tripped-on tent line, etc -- and sometimes leaks out from the lantern, [always dripping on a down sleeping bag].
    UCOs taller lantern, with a spring-advanced straight candle, is less likely to spill wax.
