    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Black Diamond Apollo Lantern is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not much to dislike Perfect for a minimalist hiker on a long term trek, this lantern provides plenty of light for meal prep outside the tent and more than enough light inside a two-man tent for reading. Runs on AAs so pack accordingly depending on the length of your trip, but overall decent battery life.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Output As an avid motorcycle camper I need to keep things small and light (just like any packpacker). That being said there are certain luxuries I need to have. Being able to see is one such luxury for me. This replaced a much larger lantern I bough at a regular sports store. I was worried about the output on this but after trying it out I was impressed. The output is amazing. In fact I never run it at full power. It fills up my tent perfectly at 50%. I even used it in a KOA camping cabin and did not need 100%. I am not sure why some figure it has a short life? I have taken this guy on 6 trips and still have the same set of batteries in it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!! This is a lightweight item and improved my car camping experience immensely! I used it outside while I was setting up my tent in the dark, and it provided ample light. I also hung it from the top of my tent using it's really cool clip system, and with the dimmer, it was the perfect amount of light for reading. A good purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wished I found this 4 outages earlier What a spectacular Item, my first introduction to an LED Lantern and Black Diamond. I endured 4 or more power outages, cannot keep track anymore. Instead burning candles, I am now going the way what a savy camper might enjoy. The item in real, is so much smaller...especially the Apollo, not much smaller than an LED light bulb. Bright, super design, so easy to use and set up, there is simply nothing else now but a Lantern from Black Diamond. Will get these items as xmas gifts!!!! And i bought the recharger kit, trying to be environment friendly...and as an option on hand. Absolutely a must have item, I am thinking suggesting folks to put this in the suite case while traveling. One never knows if a power outage hit you while you traveling.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from WAS GOOD UNTIL IT BROKE I used this several times with no issue, but the other day I took it out of from storage to take camping with me...did a test and it didn't turn on...checked the battery pack...looks like one of the terminals got corroded and now it doesn't work at all. Tried to contact BD's customer service repair and haven't heard anything back from them since for over a month...guess I'll have to suck it up and throw it in the trash. Last Black Diamond product I'll buy.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Compact Design Compact lantern just did not put out the intensity of light I was expecting. I have a couple forehead LED lights that are brighter, so I opted to return this unit at this time.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great light that only lasted 6 min I received this light as a gift and decided to take it with me for a quick over night trip in the local peaks. Everything about it seemed well constructed. The folding legs and hanging points are a great feature. I used it that night for about 6 min inside the tent. After that I went for a little hike outside and when I returned the light would not turn on. I moved the batteries around and tried everything I could think of to no avail. When I got back home I placed another brand new set of batteries in it and still nothing. Took it apart and couldn't see any obvious flaw so I have to assume the bulbs have burnt themselves out. In 6 min!!! Needless to say its going in the garbage since it was bought as a gift and the senders have no receipt.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Harley Camping Fits on a Harley in t-bags or saddlebags. Lights up the 12x10 tent (that also fits on Harley) well. For a campsite light it is weak but for a small area it is good say pinic table area maybe a bit more it is good. alway have a flashlight with to see under or behind stuff this light doesn't light up.
