Equipped with dimmable natural, cool and warm light settings, the Frontier provides enough light for the campsite, yet is the perfect size to hang or stand in your tent while a flickering candle mode means you can really step-up the romance on a quiet evening in the outdoors.

The convex reflector distributes light evenly and a battery life indicator, rubberised handle and water-resistant case make the Primus Frontier 500 Lantern ideal for camping and around the home.

I'd call this the absolute, hands down, perfect battery lantern if it turned on at the LOW brightness and then you could increase as required.
As you may have guessed, it starts at HIGH brightness which is too much when trying not to disturb others.
Otherwise, great choice of lighting colours and really good brightness levels.
Use it as an outside lantern rather than inside your tent to avoid it's only flaw.

Nice to have a warm white led lantern instead of the white light ones you see everywhere. Highly recommended.

G'day Karl,

I've just double checked the packaging on the Primus Frontier Camping Lantern 500's that we've got on the shop floor and they don't come with the 3 x D cell batteries required, no.

G'day Andy, 

I've just checked the packaging, and yes the Primus Frontier Camping Lantern 500 has a hanging hook on the base of the lantern.

250 lumen output on High?1 answer

Description of the Frontier Lantern 500 states it has 500 lumens output. But the specs show High setting has only 250 lumens output running for 17 hours. Comparing the description of the Frontier Lantern 250 which states it has 250 lumens output with the High setting giving 240 lumens runing for 10 hours, are the specs for the Frontier Lantern 500 correct?

- West Albury(1 year ago)

G'day Michael, 

Sorry about the mishap there with the specs Michael, the maximum lumens of the Frontier Camping Lantern 500 is indeed 500 on high. 

I've fixed those dimensions up now so they should read correctly now, and thank you for keeping us on our toes!

Primus or Coleman?1 answer

I am thinking we might go the Coleman easy hang LED rechargeable lamp it's fractionally more money but recharges. Is there any features this has over the Coleman?

- Marmion (2 years ago)

Hello Katie, thank you for your enquiry. The Frontier Camping Lantern has a much longer run time on high or low, however the output is significantly lower than the Easy Hang Lantern. The Coleman has a water resistant rating which we think is a great feature for outdoors. If you prefer to have a rechargeable lantern then the Coleman is a great all round option.
