Beyond the fueled lantern and the battery powered lantern is the LED lantern. Due to advancements in technology and a reduction in cost the LED lantern is widely available. LEDs have become brighter, more rugged and usually run longer than fluorescent and other bulbs.
Charles Dickens noted, There are dark shadows on the earth, but its lights are stronger in the contrast. Dickens could have been referring to outdoor post lanterns, a staple on the murky streets of London in his day.
The use of the kerosene lantern declined after electricity became widely available and improvements to battery operated devices were made. Today, the kerosene lantern is largely a collectors item and is never lit. The kerosene lantern of the 19th century has largely been replaced by modern fueled lanterns and battery operated fluorescent lamp models. Because handling liquid fuel is dangerous, most modern lanterns use a small disposable steel cylinder to enclose the fuel and is simply disposed of when empty. This fuel is most likely propane. Of course, there are lanterns in use today that use kerosene, diesel and ethanol.
