Listed below are the most common types of current production and out of production but still in use lanterns. To aid identification, SOX types have wattages listed as often only 1 size of lamp can be used, especially for main road types.

SON lanterns do not have wattages listed as most types can take a variety of lamps. Practically all SON lanterns are able to run metal halide.

Lamp type is the most common fitment (but with the general exception of SOX lanterns), most lanterns can run practically any lamp type.

Lanterns can either have integral gear or remote gear, some manufacturers denote integral gear with a change of model number, others don't.

For photographs of lanterns try Claire Pendrous or Tim Luckett.
