I ignored the last oil lamp I knew, and gave away my last Coleman lantern last week after 15 years of not using it. I just don't like the smell of most oil lamps, or having the flame on the boat, or the fumes. These days, LED lamps are so convenient and so cheap, that's all I would look for in portable interior lighting.
I like fire--I just don't like it anyplace that I might be sleeping. Especially around flammables like Polartec and most upholstery.
