Compact Camping Lantern

The NITECORE LR50 is a slim profile portable lantern that pushes out up to 250 lumens of warm light perfect for camping. The LR50 comes with three different brightness settings which can be adjusted to multiple illumination directions to provide you just the right amount of light in any situation as well as save power. Use the forward lighting for reading or napping, or use the handy included hanging loop or magnetic base and position the LR50 wherever you please.

Flexible Power Options

The LR50 is USB rechargeable and runs on one or two 18650 batteries. It is even compatible with CR123 batteries, which means you are never out of ways to power this handy lantern. You can even use it while recharging. You can enjoy all of this functionality on the LR50 for up to 100 hours of run time.

USB Charger for Electronic Devices

The LR50 is much more than just a lantern. It comes with a USB output port where you can charge your USB devices like iPhone, Android, tablets, batteries and more. The flashing blue LED battery indicator will glow steadily letting you know when the LR50 is done with charging. The LR50 can deliver the same output of fast-charging wall boxes up to 5V/2.1A. This charging capability works with both one or both of the LR50 18650 slots occupied.

4 of 5 Portable Emergency Light November 13, 2020
Reviewer: Rodney Allison from COFFEYVILLE, KS United States  
This is a convenient, portable emergency light.  With the hanger option or magnet mounting option, it will be a short term asset in a power outage or if stranded on the roadside at night.  It will fit in a bug out bag, glove compartment, a tackle box or First Aid Kit.

5 of 5 Camping Light December 27, 2019
Reviewer: Ron from Land O Tampa, FLLakes, FL United States  
I love it.  I can attach it to the car with the
magnet or use inside the tent.  Also can use it
as a emergency backup to charge a cell phone.

5 of 5 100% satisfied August 17, 2019
Reviewer: PhD69 from , France  
I used it as a ceiling light for three weeks of travel to Botswana, in a dome tent, and I’m really 100% satisfied: the light is diffused in all directions, uniformly, but not blinding. The direct charging on cigarette lighter works perfectly and the autonomy is excellent. I recommend this product without restriction.

3 of 5 Not as good as I'd hoped July 6, 2019
Reviewer: Marty Cooke from Shallotte, NC United States  
I like Nitecore gear much more than the competition as they're solid and reliable.  Unfortunately with this lantern the pin that held the diffuser on (one of the catches) flew out fortunately on a table and I reinserted it with a hemostat.  If not, the catch would have been inoperable.  I then powered the unit up and found that it really doesn't put out that much light.  It has found a place in my travel gear when I go out of town.  I have quite a few of the Nitecore lights from the very small units to some of the most powerful ones they make.  Make no mistake, they're the leader outpacing the competition in so many areas, but this needs greater refinement.  Nitecore needs to stick with really well-designed, highly refined devices.  This one is good in concept, but should be 1000 lumens minimum and have a more solid body.
