It's back and it works just like the original. Brilliant white light is ideal for caving or camping.
  • Safe, simple and durable design of solid brass.
  • Water in the top chamber drips onto carbide fuel in the lower chamber which produces acetylene gas. A small amount of pressure builds up to push gas through the orifice in the 4-1/4"OD chrome reflector.
  • Brightness is controlled with a valve that regulates how fast the water drips from upper to lower chamber.
  • Light with flint striker on reflector.
  • Clip for mounting on cap, belt or strap.
  • Burns 2-3 hours on one chamber of fuel.
  • 4"H x 2-1/4"OD, 9 oz.
  • Made in India.

Note: Due to Haz-Mat regulations, calcium carbide requires a signature upon delivery.

"Pretty to look at. Worthless as a light source. Does not function like its advertised to. A 'nick-nack," perhaps. Nonfunctional showpiece at best!"

"Shoddy and possibly dangerous. The bracket which would hold the lamp to a cap is not 180 degrees from the light; if it were attached to a cap, the lamp would be aimed 10 degrees to the right. The water valve could not be completely closed. I thought I had closed it, and was letting the flame burn the gas that was in the column, but after 5 minutes the flame suddenly shot out a good 6 inches. There was nothing to do but put the lamp in a damp place outdoors away from my house and let it burn the rest of its fuel. Cannot possibly recommend this."
