We had some storms the other night, and lost power for about 2 hours.  Here's one of the little 3 AA lanterns in use.

I have three lanterns.  One is an Uco candle lantern like in @ezdog photo.  I also have a Fenix CL20 and Luci inflatable solar lantern. 

The Fenix is the only one that uses batteries and it can use CR123 or 2xAA, which is one of the main reasons I purchased it.  I also really liked the small form factor and that it has a red light mode in addition to 4 white brightness levels.

The Luci is a nice option in that it is solar, collapses almost flat and is fairly light.  Attach it to the outside of a pack or leave outside at basecamp while hiking during the day, then inflate and use at night.

Both on low


Another option that I sometimes use is a flashlight with a ZenToes white gel toe cap as a diffuser.  I had used the ZenToes cap when I had some issues with my toe.  I then tested one of the unused caps as a diffuser and discovered it worked pretty well.
Pictured at about 1 lumen brightness
