Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tons of light I compared multiple LED lanterns and once I got this home and in the dark...I was very impressed with the amount of light it produces. Collapsed, it is a little bigger than a candle lantern and it is slightly heavier but given the overall amount of light and long burn time -- well worth the weight trade-off. This lantern light easily covers the camp-sight, it hangs well within the tent, works great sitting around camp when a fire is not an option. Simple on/off switch is protected when collapsed so it will not accidentally turn-on in your pack. Dimming function is easy to operate. Overall --- A little heavy but very well worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scout Saver We chose this lamp for its brightness and versatility, and we were not disappointed. This lamp was on the picnic table where scouts were doing work on their merit badges in the evening, and then we hung it up from the ceiling in the screen house after that. The hook at the top is two halves that overlap in the middle, making it easy to use existing tabs on tents to hang it, and also to thread cord through it and hang it from trees. No s-hook necessary. The height of the lantern makes it easy to share light, and it packs away small. Love this lantern!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bright, little lantern Compact, bright, uses AA batteries, it stands, it hangs, it dims. I wanted a backup lantern when we are car camping to use instead of a coleman propane lantern. Something that was bright enough at a camp table to cook, play cards, read, etc. This little lantern does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just fantastic This little powerhouse is amazing, lasts for days and is really bright. The legs and hooks make it even easier to use. I looked around for ages for a replacement for a gas lamp and this really makes the grade. I use rechargeable batteries in the AA holder rather then the pack/charge combo and am happy with that choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect light Have had this for 5 years. Well designed, very compact unit as the product collapses, thus protecting it and keeping the buttons from accidentally being depressed. The hanging hook is genius. It separates allowing you to hang it inside a tent without a D ring or clip. It recently took a spill and the bulb likely shorted. Black Diamond sent me a new one. Everyone in my family reaches for this first versus their headlamps, flashlights and every other light source we camp with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Light I bought this mostly for car camping and it was absolutely great. I little heavy and large to use for backpacking though. Light up the whole site and was great for cooking on the fire at night, reliable and water resistant and a heck of a lot smaller than the propane lantern. These days I'm trying to use less space and less weight and this worked perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like new after four years I bought this lantern four years ago, and it still functions great. It provides substantial light for such a small, lightweight item. The dimming function and the display for battery power are helpful, and it never gets hot to the touch. In addition to camping, I loaned this lantern to a neighbor during a power outage and it let up an entire studio apartment. I expect the lantern will last for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright and Small This thing is like the sun. Was too bright for our four person tent. Perfect when we dimmed it down.

How dimmable is this lantern?  Can you check how LOW the lumens can get, both to save battery, and produce a nicer camp atmosphere? 

Asked by: TennesseePeaks
The Apollo Lantern 15 will dim down to 10 lumens.

For Black Diamond lamp purchased ca 5 years ago, my batteries are good but there is no light. Is the light source replaceable? And how do you remove the construction at the base of the upper portion where the light comes from?

Asked by: James Banker
​Please contact the manufacturer directly for repair information and advice.

I'll probably not keep it on high, but how long can I expect the batteries to last?

Asked by: ahowiejones
Black Diamond states that the Apollo at 10 lumens will last 100 hours.
