Welcome to the forum.

I am not a hot tenter so I am unable to provide any insight for you. Sorry.

And don't knock it over. My personal opinion is that it's a recipe for disaster.

I would not use a coleman lantern. I use a headlamp as needed and a candle lantern. You might want to visit this forum for more information related to winter hot tenting: http://www.wintertrekking.com/ and search your question there.

the new led battery lanterns do last. ive saw some little coleman ones go 18 hours and they put off a ton of light also very light weight and packable. i personally use my headlamp it last for 30 hours with duracell aaa's.

i have a coleman with a 15 watt cfl its 6500k so its daylight spectrum and it lasts in my hunting cabin all winter in the cold. ive changed the batteries 2 times in two year as it does not get much use but it is heavy for my standards for lugging it into the woods in my pack. it uses 4 d cells.

that will kill them quick. i have good luck with duracells but i keep them in a warm spot when im hiking and camping. who wants to really carry a pocket full of batteries tho,lol. idk why or how my cfl lantern last so long but when it is really cold it takes a bit for it to get bright.

also, batteries that die from the cold will usually regenerate some power if you warm them up. if its gonna be that cold tho id use white gas and candles, both of which i keep in my cabin just in case.
