Description
Save money on fuel when you're lighting the way with a Coleman® Kerosene Lantern. It's powered by Coleman® Kerosene, which is out most cost-efficient fuel source. The single-mantle design of this lantern creates a steady, bright glow of up to 700 lumens of light that reaches up to 11 meters away. To get your lantern started, simply add some rubbing alcohol (sold separately) to the primer cup, light the alcohol with a match, then dial in the perfect brightness with the adjustable control knob. Once your lantern is lit, the fuel tank provides a steady base when placed on a table, and the bail handle allows for easy hanging. When you're ready to head home, so is this lantern since it doesn't require any disassembly, which means it's always ready to go with you on your next bright adventure.
  • 700 lumens on high casts light up to 11 meters
  • Lasts up to 6.5 hours on high or 8.5 hours on low on 1.5 pints of kerosene (sold separately)
  • Adjustable brightness gives you precise control for perfect outdoor lighting
  • Porcelain-coated 2-tier ventilator helps resist corrosion and rust
  • High-temperature globe resists cracking from heat
  • Bail handle for easy carrying and convenient hanging
  • String Tie #11 mantle included

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely a 5-star product Another quality lantern from a company with a rich history in lanterns. I've used many Coleman lanterns through the years with some dating back to the 1950's and this one is built with the same quality. It is extremely bright, especially when you compare it to the single-mantle propane lantern. The cool factor from using kerosene and the alcohol ignition system puts it over the top. Kerosene has another plus for me. I live in a rural area and power outages are frequent with some lasting up to five days. In those cases, gasoline and propane get scarce quickly. This lantern gives me an alternative fuel source. After using this lantern for several months now, I've ordered a second one. Here's my only gripe; it doesn't come in red like the old 220 models. That would be the icing on the cake. So Coleman, if you're listening, PLEASE offer some in red.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Coleman Lantern packing and shipping complaint Received the lantern undamaged. It wasn't packed very well, when compared to lanterns that I've bought in the past. The only protection was a brown wrapping paper coiled up and wedged into one side of the box. Skimping on shipping protection seems like a poor way to cut corners to save some money, especially when the lantern gets damaged and Coleman has to ship another one to replace it, still taking a chance with very little protection.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I was looking for old school 2 burner Lantern Part my fault I should have looked much closer, but after getting this it seems cheap with the lid/handle. It looks cheap and not as good as the older lids with the center screw. I also remember the 2 burners, not sure yet if this works as good as the 2 burner ones, have not used it yet. I think I remember they had a old school replica one foe sale but was super big bucks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Deceptive Website Pics Lantern is great. Deceptive pictures in the product description, and less than helpful customer service regarding it is what earned the 1 Star. A carrying case was clearly depicted on the website in the photos. No case was received.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 639C Preheating is essential. The copper tubing needs more curvature. The location and size of your frame holes needs improvement. Large kitchen matches are not available. My 237 from 1958 burns brighter and is a better lantern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lantern I have several older Coleman lanterns, wanted a new kerosene burner. It runs great and is very bright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kerosene lantern This is my 4th Coleman lantern and first kerosene burning one. Like all Coleman lanterns, they work great and are such a beneficial tool to use for either epic camping trips or during emergencies. One of my lanterns was made in 1949 and still runs perfectly. Let that be a testament that you can pass these lanterns down multiple generations and they still operate well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone should own a Coleman Lantern What's not to like about a big single burner Coleman lantern. Love these old school lanterns. The 639C is a wonderful lantern. Burns bright, burns long, burns hot. Quality is very good on the one I received. If you have any problems with a Coleman product it has been my experience they will take care of it. Exceeded my expectations in the past dealing with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still great lanterns! In today's world I think Colman pressure lanterns (kerosene, dual fuel)are still at the top of the list for quality and functionality. Only reason they don't get 5 stars is because they aren't quite the quality they used to be, but very few things are in this time of shareholder profits and the environmental stranglehold on industry in our country.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome lantern this lantern is brighter than my 286 (single mantle gas) after preheat, mantle lit instantly without flames or smoke also could adjust dimmer than my gas lantern very best part, "made in the USA!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Bright, Runs great! I lit this lantern following the instructions. Preheating with denatured alcohol in the spirit cup for about 2 min. Turned the valve on an it lit up right away. This is my first kerosene lantern and couldnt be more impressed with its performance. It is very bright. Consumption of kerosene is better than expected. Great lantern!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Globe was broke Globe was broken when arrived. Emailed Coleman customer service and sent a few pictures and return address and a few days later a new one came. Very good service and as far as the lantern it’s a gift but looks like I’ll be buying one for myself. All lanterns are a little pricey these days so this is no different. Love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liquid Fuel Lantern Utility and Atmosphere Great, old school lantern. I own many Coleman liquid fuel lanterns and stoves. They were part of my time in The Boy Scouts and throughout my years of camping. This is my first kerosene lantern and I am looking forward to many years of great service. So glad Coleman still builds these models.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good light output, but some issues The lantern arrived much faster than expected, thank you Coleman. Easy to light, great light output, but a couple of issues: The lantern is too noisy on full power to relax or have a quiet conversation near it - it's really loud - I have Coleman white gas lanterns and they burn much quieter. You can adjust the 639 down somewhat to make it quieter, maybe a third of the way down from full, but then the kerosene smell gets very strong, so apparently it's not burning completely unless at full power - this cancels out the usefulness of any adjustability. Also, maybe it's just me being new to the lantern, but I have used Coleman white gas lanterns and stoves for years and the pump on this lantern doesn't work smoothly like my white gas versions. It's very difficult to push the plunger in when your thumb is over the hole in the pump knob, the majority of the time it wants to rebound without adding any air pressure to the tank, and I cannot figure out how to get it to pump air into the tank consistently.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good for a backup light in an emergency. I love the lantern for its brightness and long burning time. I do have one major issue with it. It seems to require fresh Kerosene to work properly. I have 3 Coleman Kerosene Lanterns; I have 2 model 201 and the newest is the 639. I buy my kerosene at a local gas station and use it in my kerosene heater as well as my kerosene lanterns. I have a 5 gal can that is about 2 years old. The heater and both 201's use it without any trouble. But when I put it in the 639 the mantle will turn black. With both 201 not having the problem I assumed there was a problem with the 639 after replacing mantel and trying again the same problem returned, so I replaced the generator, and the mantel. relite the lantern and after a few min the problem returned. so, I bought some expensive kerosene off the shelf at a local big box store. drained the tank and refiles with the new Kero, replaced the mantle again, relite and the problem went away. So, in my experience if you buy this lantern thinking that you can set it aside with a few gals of kore and keep for an emergency you will be very disappointed and in the dark when the light goes out and you try using it for light. I am trying to add a picture, but it will not let me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Fishing On The Beach Late At Night Great product I use it every week for late night and early morning surf fishing on the beach. It provides a usable, no disruptive warm light with great ambiance that I believe everyone should get the chance to enjoy and experience I couldn't recommend this enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Damaged lantern One of the two Coleman Kerosene lanterns arrived in fine shape. The box looked as if it might have been dropped and the globe on the other lantern,was shattered. Can you send me a replacement globe, or do I need to try to return the whole lantern for replacement?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality control now what it used to be. This is my second kerosene lantern i bought from coleman, the first was perfect but the second one had globe issues ...the globe was just a tad too tall and would not turn with the vent on even the bail wire rubs on the glass ..just waiting for it to break.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect We love our Coleman kerosene lanterns. We use them when we go camping. We use them when we lose power. They are bright and throw a little heat so that’s helpful in the cold snowy winters suringmm no outages. These are my husbands favorite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright & Easy to use. Even with the added step of filling the filling the pre-heater cup this lantern is incredibly easy to use. bright enough to illumate a campsite as good as a Coleman gas - duel fuel - or propane lantern. A well made lantern - recommended.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Review of Kerosene Lantern by longtime customer! Has stamped metal burner assembly which is a far cry from the older models solid metal brass burner tube. A serious future rust problem! However, still like the fact Coleman still makes this lantern model made in the USA.
Date published: 2022-12-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ll be buying a second First lantern I’ve ever bought and it’s perfect. I’d buy two of these before I went to a higher lumen. I struggled to get the alcohol to ignite. Maybe it works better if I use denatured? But once lit it lasted all night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light I had a Coleman lantern at one time, we went camping and it fell in the water, it stayed lit and floated as far as the eye can see. They give plenty of light and float lol. Sorry I don't have a picture of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kerosene is best for grid down emergencies For emergencies I use kerosene for heating, cooking and lighting. I liked my fist kerosene lantern so much I bought a second. They are USA made quality, simple to operate and light an entire room.

Upon checking, please be advised that you should always light the mantles with a match only and let them burn to ash before lighting the lantern. Attempting to light the lantern and burn off the mantles at the same time can cause a mantle to tear or break. It is recommended that if you have an electronic ignition lantern, you light it the first time with a match. After being burned off, mantles are delicate. Using the electronic ignition on the first lighting can cause the mantle to break. Lighting the lantern the first time with a match will allow the mantles to expand and shape themselves, which makes them stronger. We hope this helps answer your question.
