3 Amazing Compact LED Camping Tent Lights

LED Camping Tent Lights

Camping is still in season, and finding quality essential camping tools can be quite a challenge. However, one essential tool that I would like to focus on, and possibly one of my favorite tools while camping… Especially when camping with a family, is my growing collection of LED camping tent lights. So on a smaller scale, identifying the “Best Compact LED Camping Tent Light” is a lot easier when you are in the know and have an idea of what is best to suit your camping needs.

Identifying the best tent light for your needs
Whether camping in a large 6+ family tent or smaller 2-person tent lighting is essential to creating a quality camping experience. It is without a doubt that and from personal experience, sitting by the fire is my all-time favorite type of lighting, however, there have been times when the light from the fire or flashlight was just not enough. In terms of making the best choice, I personally prefer compact lighting in comparison to traditional LED torch lanterns, but don’t get me wrong, I camp with both lanterns and compact tent lights.

The torch lanterns I traditionally use for lighting the area around my campsite, while the compact lighting comes equipped with LED lighting modes that are perfect for inside the tent, especially when camping with young children and pets.

So first, you should identify how the tent light will be used,

Considerations for your camping tent light:

Environment – Where are you camping? Will you be in the wilderness, your backyard, or on a campsite? Will a power source be available?
Sizing and Placement – Is this light powerful enough for your needs? Where will this light be paced in your tent? Propped up or hanging?
Power Supply – Will this light needs batteries or another energy source? Will this light be used a regular basis, only at night, or will it just be used as a nightlight?
Brightness – Will this light serve as a reading light? Will it be used to brighten the tent? A nightlight perhaps?
Tent Light Modes – Do you need a light with high brightness? Do you need a light with low brightness? What type of lighting do you need colored or soft? Would you like an SOS mode in case of emergencies?

Answering these questions will make your decision a lot easier, and possibly help you with preparing for your family or personal camping trip.

Outdoor Hanging LED Tent Light

The Outdoor Hanging Compact LED Tent Light is probably my ultimate favorite and #1 tent light choice for camping. I see this light as a multi-purpose outdoor tool, primarily because I have used this light while hunting, camping, nighttime fishing, and even while working in my garage. This light comes with three (3) light settings (High, Low, and SOS) and I have even used this light as a night light.

This compact camping tent light has ranked as top-pick because this is truly a multi-purpose light that can serve many functions, it includes a nightlight setting and SOS mode which has come in handy for me on a few occasions.

S1200 LED Solar Outdoor Compact Tent Light

The S1200 130LM Solar LED Outdoor Tent light is my number 2 (#2) tent light pick. I actually really enjoy this light for the simple fact that I have used this light in quite a few environments and it has consistently performed better than expected. However, I have found this light to be ideal when camping with family or by myself, it has even come in handy during power outages. I really like the solar powered concept, and energy efficiency of this tent light. There is no doubt that this light can also serve many purposes, outdoors and indoors.

Tip: If backpacking, remember to charge the solar panel by hanging it on your backpack.

A Big Heads-up! This light only has one mode of soft-light and does not have battery backup. Needless to say if you are camping in the woods overpowered by shade, without the sun, then you are out of luck. This is where you LED torch flashlight will come in handy.

However, this light has been known to work best as a compact lantern, for everyday carry, night fishing, trekking though caves (which is a blast), and mountaineering.
