Lots of emotional appeal to wick lanterns and nothing beats a Coleman-style (gas or LP) lantern for raw light output. But the new LED lanterns are hard to beat for convenience. I have been using a couple of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011J9XXP4/ They come on instantly and give good light for general purposes. I'm still on the original set of batteries and probably have 20+ hours of operation so far. My only complaint od the switch is hard to find in the dark.
