Back in the day, practically every urban or rural household had an oil based hurricane lantern that was at the ready when needed. Not surprisingly, there is still a need these days for the hurricane lantern but technological advances have since modified the lantern. No longer burning oil, there are now led hurricane lanterns that run off of two D cell batteries, providing a bright LED light along with a dimmer switch. Many manufacturers have kept the initial design combining the retro look with current technological standards.
