This is a very simple idea I came up with that allows you to turn a flashlight like my beloved Streamlight Stylus pro into a Lantern using a basic white birthday balloon. The video embedded will tell you everything you need to know.

<p>Brilliant idea! No pun intended.</p>
<p>I have now used this technique for two camping trips and it works very nicely. Much better than the cheap little coleman lantern I have in my camping bin. </p>
<p>Great diffusor idea, this looks like the little brother to lighting systems like these ...</p><p><a href="http://www.leeliumballoons.com/" rel="nofollow">http://www.leeliumballoons.com/ </a> </p><p><a href="http://www.airstarlightingoftexas.com/airstar-lunix.html" rel="nofollow">http://www.airstarlightingoftexas.com/airstar-luni...</a></p>

<p>Great idea! Looks like a perfect way to turn my backpacking flashlight into a lantern with zero weight.</p>
<p>Thanks, yah the size and weight is a big benefit of the concept. Glad you liked it. Thanks for the kind words. Cheers</p>
<p>That is one good way to diffuse the light. </p>
