Small, works.

Comments about Black Diamond Orbit Lantern:

This is the really small version of Black Diamond's three small lanterns. The original version is the 4AA Apollo, which we used for several years, until the on/off button died. The Voyager is a newer AA lantern, which shrunk the Apollo to half size, added a bottom flashlight, and left off the feet, which raised the Apollo above your table. The Orbit is smaller yet, using 4AAAs. All are really good, with the Voyager and Orbit being just about perfect, differing only in size. Both of them have a bottom flashlight, which solves the usual problem of a dark circle under the lantern, and all of them go from bright to just barely on, by holding the button. I'm not sure how well they are weather resistant, but both are Highly Recommended.

Feature rich pocket rocket!

Comments about Black Diamond Orbit Lantern:

I'm very impressed with all of BD's lighting technology. I'm kind of a lighting geek so I've looked at many brands out there. I really like the interface their lights have. It is very intuitive. This little light has many great features that I feel set it apart from its competition. As I mentioned it is very compact which is awesome when space is a premium. It takes four AAA batteries instead of three. Many small lights skimp and only pack three batteries inside. This gives a shorter run time and the annoyance of using batteries in odd numbers. I take this light and the Storm headlamp as it runs on 4 AAA too. This way I'm relying on one type of battery in even numbers. I can charge 4 AAA Samsung eneloops on a solar charger in the day and have them ready that night. I also like how this light has the flood flashlight beam at the bottom. In the past I haven't taken lanterns camping because in the tent they don't illuminate what is directly under them well. This light solves that problem by having a mode where the flood light can be activated at the bottom with or without the lantern function. The beam is very diffused though so it really doesn't replace having a good flashlight or headlamp (the Storm) with you too.

    Comments about Black Diamond Orbit Lantern:

    I love this lantern. I have used it on my last camping trip and it was wonderful. Very easy to use, strong, light weight and there are two metal hooks on top. When you turn on the light it is at it's brightest setting,you hold the switch down and it get dimmer. It is wonderful, everyone wanted to use it. Great item, everyone should have one, fits nicely in your pack.

      Comments about Black Diamond Orbit Lantern:

      Bought this light off of other people's reviews. Black Diamond did it again. Great compact light. Ordered the Apollo today after getting this little light. It's a tad small for my 6 man tent, but it does light it up well, I just wanted a bigger version of this LED style. I keep this in my personal stuff sack and share the Apollo with others. VERY happy with this purchase.
