1. Bright
Brightness is also measured in lumens, and the general brightness of camp lamps is between 100 and 300 lumens, which is slightly brighter than headlamps. If placed inside a tent for lighting, 100 lumens is enough for 2-3 people; If you're going to use them in the camp kitchen, consider brighter camp lights. For photos intended for use in a communal part of multiple tents or lighting for a group dinner, consider camping lamps over 200 lumens.

Like headlamps, bright camp lamps are generally larger in size and weight. The difference between camping lamps and headlamps is that they are usually elliptical or circular, which makes them more useful and convenient when placed in a fixed position than headlamps.

Water resistance is a standard, general quality camp lamp can provide IPX4 waterproof rating, which is enough to cope with wet outdoor environment.
