Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Okeedokee from Ct on Wednesday, October 12, 2016Works well. A tip: pull the top plastic shield upward to expose the on/off button. It's not obvious.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Chad from Austin, Texas on Friday, September 23, 2016The two sides hook is genius and makes for easy hanging of the lantern. The landing pod legs get the small lantern up casting light over a larger immediate area. Great on a picnic table. The 200 lumen model can be used as a primary lantern. I only give the product four stars because it's not as bright as the 200 lumen model.
Reviewed by John W from Billings MT on Sunday, September 4, 2016What I am compelled to emphasize is the dimming feature on these BDE lamps. Hold the off/on button and it fades from bright to low. Used this in Uganda as a NIGHTLIGHT, where we slept in places without electricity or the generators are turned off at night. It became essential. Lasts several nights on one set of batteries, on low power. Will be great camping in a tent too. I have the smaller one, about the size of a cardboard toilet paper tube, and it's the perfect size.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Hunting from Idaho on Wednesday, October 28, 2015Un-boxing this lamp I was surprised how little it was. I didn't read the descriptions, but that is not a negative for this product. I rather liked how small it was and collapsed into itself, great for keeping my packing small. I used this lamp to light up my 12x12 wall tent. It lit up the tent just fine, I left it running, on full, for eight hours before the batteries failed. I am not upset by this, just be sure to bring extra batteries if you plan to use it all night for several nights.
5 stars for size, output and functionality (self standing and or hanging)
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Andy O... from Duvall, WA. on Wednesday, October 28, 2015It is a cool product for the price I hope to try it out this week in the woods. I would also like to get the rechargeable kit for it do not have to waist the money on alkaline batteries...

“Curious if this is the newer (March 2015) model, or the older model? the newer one has a higher lumen count, which would be a selling point for me. Thanks!”
I'm pretty sure this is the older model. Black
Diamond was selling the same ones on their website in their clearance area, but STP was cheaper because of shipping and discount emails.
This is not the March 2015 model.
It depends on what type AA batteries you use. Alkaline AA batteries have a weight of roughly 23 g (0.81 oz), lithium AA batteries have a mass around 15 g (0.53 oz), and rechargeable NiMH batteries around 31 g (1.1 oz). Multiply the weight by 4 and add 7 oz. for your total weight.
