baby brother
We already own two of the "Apollos"(which we love) but needed something more compact also. I was so amazed at the amount of light this little guy produced. It is part of our home emergency backup and will go on all our Colorado adventures. This was a stocking gift for my husband. I will definitely be ordering a second one for myself. You will not be disappointed or ever left in the dark. I suggest you have one in your car, purse, bedside anywhere. Apollos's baby brother does the family proud!

great lightweight light
This light is amazingly bright, especially considering that it weighs next to nothing. We really like the easy-to-use dimmer feature that allows us to use only as much light as needed to conserve batteries. Best backpacking light I've ever owned!

Versatile Compact Lantern
Although I am not a big camper, I am sure this lantern would work great for any field trip where gear space is limited. I take one on all my adventure travel expeditions. When not in use it remains stored in a handy home location for power outages. This lantern has a great design, it is extremely compact and versatile. I would definitely recommend this lantern anytime you are planning to pack light.

Tiny little thing!
When i bought i was expecting a larger lantern (yes, my mistake for not reading the dimensions). After initially being concerned, i realized what a great thing it is to have such a small lantern to lug around. Given the lower output (not a substitute for fuel powered units) I've turned it into my storm/disaster recovery light. Easy to grab, tough to damage and runs an awful long time on a single set of batteries.

Great Light
Love this lantern, small enough to go on any trip and enough light to read by, cook by or whatever you might need. Simple design and construction should last for years.
