Dietz Hurricane Lantern Review – Urban Survival

Friday, October 15th, 2010 | Author:

How multipurpose is a Dietz no. 80 Hurricane Lantern? Watch and find out. Also known as the “Blizzard”, this is the largest and brightest of the original railroad-style hurricane lanterns, so called because the flame is so well protected that even a hurricane will not blow it out. A while ago Dietz (an American firm) moved all the original tooling to Asia where they continue to make lamps in the same style that first appeared in 1840. The lantern gives off a 12-candlepower light, burns continuously for up to 26 hours without refuelling and goes out automatically if the lantern tips over. Makes a great emergency light, garden lantern, or nostalgic decoration. A lever lifts the glass globe to expose the wick for quick lighting, extinguishing, or trimming. Hunter green with gold trim. Metal and glass construction. 15″ tall, not including the handle. Uses lamp oil or kerosene.
