Beginning with the same great foundation as Helix Basecamp - a collapsible globe and folding legs for wide light dispersion, also providing multiple hanging options. This particular lantern is powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery, cutting down on disposable battery use and saving a bunch of cash over the life of the lantern. Plan to be away from power for a long time? Helix Rechargeable can operate on 3 AA cells if needed. The power dial controls dimmable white and red LEDs in the same intuitive manner as old-school gas lanterns. Lockout prevents accidental turn on, while a builtin USB port allows for charging a phone, GPS or other compatible device.

My review of the Princeton Tec Helix Basecamp rechBy: Colin on 6 September 2018Have tested unit at home in garden and I am very happy with the amount of red or white light it provides especially for such a compact and lightweight unit. Product seems very well made and has been designed to give options for hanging whilst at camp as well being sturdy sitting on the table/floor. I like the collapsable design for reduced storage meaning I can also put in my rucksack. I have yet to record the battery life from full charge. Good service from Wild Earth too.
