"Four years ago, I ordered two of the Jupiter lanterns (blue). I was so pleased with their quality and performance that I ordered two more this past month. The lanterns are well-constructed, durable, and easy to maintain. I use the lanterns for camping, for illumination when I am working outdoors late at night, or during power outages. The lanterns produce abundant, flicker-free light, even in gusty wind conditions. I use Aladdin lamp oil, which seems to prolong the wick life and minimize wick maintenance. Lehman's packs the shipment exceptionally well. The lanterns arrive in perfect condition. When lighting the lantern, I do assist the chimney assembly by gently pulling upward on the tab located at the top. This minimizes stress on the lever that is used to lift the chimney. I use a small household funnel to fill the lantern. I highly recommend the Jupiter lantern."

"The Lantern (we got a blue one) arrived well packed and double boxed. The finish and fit were good, considering what it is. Burns brightly, and holds a LOT of fuel. My only complaints are #1... the fill port is VERY close to the burner assembly, making the use of a funnel difficult, I'd suggest making a clear tubing + Funnel rig to make it easier to fill. #2... The lever to lift the Chimney assembly is soft metal and even though it was treated gently it has bent some... Use the Top ring combined with the lever to avoid this problem."

" I had to post a follow up comment, I have had two of these for over 2 years, during this time these lamps have been outside, with no protection from the elements. This has been 24/7, 365 for over 2 years. The only thing I have done is fill the lamps and trim the wicks. Now my report is as follows. These lamps have held up extremely well. I still have the original globes on them as well as the wicks. I took them to Edisto SC last summer and they burned from dusk to dawn each night, right on the ocean front and NEVER blew out even in some pretty stiff ocean breezes. They have endured heavy wind, rain, snow and still perform as advertised. They aren't new and shiny as they once were and there is a bit of rust here and there but I couldn't be happier, I mean these things have been through it in the past 2 years. I would Highly recommend them. Great product, great price and great service from Lehman's. When they wear out, I will get new ones. thanks so much. MSS"

"There should be a higher rating than "great", I would go with excellent! I love the blue. I have an old "Lil Wizard" that was a RR lantern in a gunk pile. Took the red off the lens. After all the years, still works great."

"I would like to add an excellent rating to those already posted here. I ordered the lantern to have in case of power outages and the moment it came out of the package I was impressed with its generous size and obvious quality. I picked up some lantern oil at a local hardware store, used an Internet search to learn how to use and trim a wick, and lit the lantern. It worked perfectly on the first try. No smoke, no soot, no odor. I plan to purchase another Jupiter lantern and am convinced that having two will be all I'll need for lighting purposes during our next ice storm/power outage. Thank you, Lehman's!"

"This came from Lehman's packed super well! It's a beautiful, well made lantern. It's big, but not outlandishly so. It's just a D-Lite with an extra big fount added on. You can look at the step at the top of the tank, the same size as the D-Lite's fount, to see how much bigger it is. It's not awkward to carry, but is a bit heavy with a full tank. I just walked 2 1/2 miles in the hills with it, though. It's OK for carrying, but the D-Lite would be handier. Where the big tank shines is when it's used for emergency backup lighting and can go a long time without refilling. It looks just like a 150% scaled up version of my Little Wizard that I've had for 40 years. I love it! "

"Bought two of these to replace a couple old junkers in case the power went out this winter. I was amazed at the price when they came and I realized just how big they really were!!! They work great and I am extremely pleased with them."

"Received my lantern about 2 weeks ago, had a chance to use it and am loving it so far. Puts out good light and quite a bit of heat too. Wayyy bigger than I thought it would be but can tell that it will last a long time. Love it!"

"Great lantern!!!! My husband hates the odor of kerosene and put off-road diesel in it. The next day he put it in the bathroom for over an hour with the door closed. NO ODOR and burned soot free. Now, he has requested that I order him two more!!"
