Nitecore LA30

The Nitecore LA30 is the latest camping lantern in the Nitecore range and offers an innovative bi-fuel power system. The light has a built-in Li-ion battery which is rechargeable via a micro USB lead; alternatively it is compatible with 2 x AA batteries as a useful and widely obtainable power back-up. The LA30 has a maximum output of 250 lumens from the 8 high CRI LEDs and 3 red LEDs.


The LA30 lantern offers high colour rendering LEDs (CRI>90) which provides neutral light to reduce eye strain and relay true colours of your surroundings. In addition, the 40 lumen red light helps to preserve night vision for wildlife observation, astronomy and night photography. The light is operated by a single switch which operates three white brightness levels, two red levels and the special modes.


Extremely lightweight, compact and portable, the LA30 is perfect for outdoor camping and hiking or as an emergency lighting backup. The lantern can be attached using either the metal loop on the base of the light or stuck to a metal surface using the magnetic base.

    Great features but way too expensive

    Posted by Indignant Bystander on 13th Feb 2020

    I have had this lantern for several weeks now but I have yet to use in a real world situation. This is a good thing as I keep it my car for emergencies. The graduation of the brightness levels for the white light are spot on but the low red light is just a tad too high for me. Although it's only a stated 5 lumens it seems to be too bright for camping or tactical stuff. As with most Nitecore products there is a great array of functionality with the LA30. The feature which proved to be the winner for me was the dual power source of AA battery and the built in Li-ion battery. Essentially you could fit the AA batteries and fully charge the built in battery for double the stated run times. The LA30 will deplete the AA batteries first before using the built in battery. The magnetic base is a nice feature and should be adequate for most tasks. Despite all the good stuff about the LA30 I can only award it four stars as its price is way too high. I'd love to have another two (one for the home and one for work) but the I really couldn't justify it. If it was half the price I'd own three.
