Powerful enough for family camping trips or base camp illumination, the innovative Black Diamond Apollo lantern is so compact and lightweight, that you can also throw it in your pack for your next backcountry adventure.

A 3-Watt LED works in tandem with dual reflectors and a frosted globe to provide maximum light output (80 lumens on the maximum setting) without causing glare. A unique dimming switch provides quick and easy brightness adjustability. Operated by 4 AA alkaline batteries (not included), the Black Diamond Apollo offers 60 hours of burn time. The Apollo is also compatible with Black Diamond's NRG Rechargeable Battery Kit (sold separately) which cuts down on waste and provides you with a renewable energy source. An integrated battery power indicator lets you know the amount of battery left or the charging status of the NRG Rechargeable Battery Kit.

The Apollo has a free-standing design that employs foldable and extendible legs. At full extension, the Apollo can stand at a full height of 9.5 inches which greatly increases the disbursement of light.

The Black Diamond Apollo lantern is available in your choice of colors.

Likes: I really like this lantern. The legs make it very versatile and the light is very bright and weighs very little. I look forward to many nights with this light.

Dislikes: none

Likes: Puts out a good amount of light for the size. Frosted globe prevents the light from being too harsh. Dimmer feature is excellent.

Dislikes: A little heavier than I anticipated when batteries are in it.

Likes: I give this 4.5 stars, I love Black Diamond lighting products. Very nice design, lightweight, decent output, clean light that is easy on the eyes and good battery life!

Dislikes: Wish lumen output was a little better.

Likes: Small and well made. Brightness is decent and the brightness adjustment is great. Instead of 2-3 settings you push and hold the button and the brightness cycles smoothly between brightest and dimmest. Been using on car camping trips and it's plenty of light for a radius of maybe 10'-20'. Set it on the picnic table or hang it in the tent.

Dislikes: The battery holder is a little flimsy, but nothing that would keep me from recommending this awesome little light.

Likes: for it's tiny size this lantern really shines. it is ideal for backpacking or car camping and packs up really nice. i like that the legs fold down for a table or stay up to be hung from a tree or tent ceiling. the battery power indicator lights are really useful too. battery life seems very good if you don't keep the light level on full blast all the time. but i think i might buy the Black Diamond rechargable battery pack soon just to cut back on battery use and ensure the power level is always toppoed up. the unit also has an appealing design and look which i always appreciate.

Dislikes: nothing

Likes: What a great little light! I am not a minimalist when backpacking, and I like to have lights handy around the camp whenever possible. This little lantern really does a nice job for its size and weight. I used it for several hours on my last trip with no noticeable degradation to the light's output. I use this one for my general/food prep area, and I use the orbit inside my tent. They are both great products!

Dislikes: Nothing
