Both lanterns are the same size, two mantles, and as similar as I could make them. I tried more than fifty brick and mortars for a second reflector for the pump-up lantern, but Coleman has stopped making them, and NO ONE knew where to get them anymore. So, I made a matched pair for this test. I believe they will be better for the purpose then the store bought anyways. Here are the finished reflectors, let me know if there is anything else I should do for set-up of a fair comparison test, or if I have missed anything. both lanterns have the same 5 1/2 inches from the cap down, so the reflective surfaces match.[attachment=0]water fire exstinguisher.jpg[attachment=2]water fire exstinguisher.jpg continued on next post.

over the glass on one side of the lamps to reflect the light and it works very well and is easy to do.
