I use a Petzl Zipka Plus 2, a Petzl Zipka Plus as back up and a Petzl E-Lite in case of God knows what!
A Micro Candle lantern
As a 'lantern' I'd think yes - clicks on/off nicely and it is a nice diffuse light, while much lighter than lanterns proper. No idea how well it'll last etc mind.
Also clearly awfully heavy
if you're not a complete lightweight freak... a candle stuck in a spare tent pole is nice. garden candles have a stick poking out out & are good...you can also get citronella ones.Otherwise, an alpkit headtorch hung off some elastic/dental floss
British milspec Arctic candles do me. About 3 weekends use per candle & they get lighter each trip!
Far nicer than that electric glow.
Car Camping? A paraffin Tilley or equivelent
Silverpoint Mini Lantern
Got both the above - the Nano is as good as the Photon
I quite like the look of those candle micro lanterns.

the light as shown by kev will do the trick, it does add extra weight, it does give a better all round light that a head torch i find
I'm not sure what this means (better all round light). A head torch lights up where you are looking. Do you mean it is better to have light where you are not looking? How does that make the light better (ie it is there when not being used)?
Provides light to help you find your head-torch
I like to use my headtorch as little as possible in case I need it in the event of bailing out during the night or getting delayed & having to walk after dark the following day
battery operated fairy lights (string of 20LEDs) - £1 from a poundshop. Good ambient lighting. For reading etc...headtorch.
Mate of mine has a windup thingy - all it did is wind him up..
