Great car camping lantern

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Pine Cone from Western Washington on Wednesday, January 21, 2015
I have bought 5 or 6 of these now. I got one a few years back and used it camping and really liked it. Got a couple more for me and a couple for gifts. This year the power was out for a couple of days. These lanterns worked well around the house. I would use the Black Diamond Orbit for backpacking since it is smaller and lighter, but it runs on AAA batteries.....The Apollo runs on AAs which means it has a much longer battery life.

The wire legs help lift it off a table to give a bit more useable light for playing cards or reading vs the shorter and smaller Orbits. The hooks on top make it easy to hang up in a tent or shade shelter. Folds up small and pretty much indestructable package.
