This type of amazingly powerful paraffin lantern was first developed in
Germany in 1910, and has been in production ever since. Why? Well even today there is a need for independent light sources where there is no electricity - camping and boating for example - and the design has never been surpassed. The metal parts are chromed brass (so they can't rust) and its heat-hardened glass comes from the legendary Schott Glaswerks. With simple, regular maintenance they last for decades and many WWII-era examples are still in use.
The Petromax HK150 is compact in size, ideal for trips. High attention to detail and build quality.
Height 11½" .
