Black Diamond Equipment Apollo Lantern
Winner of the Alpinist Mountain Standards award, the compact Black Diamond Apollo Lantern packs down to only 5 x 3 in. and then extends to a nine-inch height when you need some light. Added folding aluminum legs make the Apollo stable when it's on a table, and a top loop lets you hang it inside the tent for those storm-bound mental sessions. The three LED bulbs light up a 30-foot radius for outside use, and the Apollo dims to save energy when you don't need the power. You can use Black Diamond's NRG rechargeable battery system or four AA batteries. A 3-Watt LED works in tandem with dual reflectors and a frosted globe to provide maximum light output without causing glare. A unique dimming switch provides quick and easy brightness adjustability.

When I arrived at a campsite in total darkness this lantern made setting up a tent a lot easier. It was lightweight and easy to hold with one hand while setting up the tent. I dropped it couple times from about 3 feet high and didn't even get a scratch on it. This thing puts out quite a bit of light for being so small. I used the lantern for about 4 hours during my trip and judging by the battery meter I probably could have used it for another 4 plus. The tripod legs that fold down make it very stable. Overall a great product!

Not only outdoor activity but also in an emergency
I have the first model of Apollo and still works great, but this time I just bought new Apollo which is upgraded from 60 to 80 lumens of bright. Plus, new model has separate double hooks(old model has just a single hook hang loop). If you have Orbit, yeah it looks the same style of hook. You don't need mini accessory carabiners for hanging it from a string. When we had an electric power outage, my family was surprised at Apollo's work. This is the best not only for your outdoor activities but also in a time of emergency. Please don't forget to add NRG Rechargeable Battery Kit, this save $ for your 4 AA alkalines.

One of our best camping purchases
This light is small yet very powerful. We agreed that it was one of the best purchases we made for our Yosemite camping trip.
