"Small. Light. Bright. Get lithium batteries."
BD makes a Voyageur Lantern that is bigger and heavier than the Orbit. Since the Orbit takes 4 AAA batteries, it will burn through them rather quickly. I find that on a 5-day backpacking trip, I have to replace the batteries by the end. However, for making camp at night, it's nice to have for students to sit around and eat dinner if you're in an area where fires are prohibited. Plus, for those kiddos that tend to go to the bathroom in the night, they can hang this from a branch to help light their nocturnal evacuations.In terms of weight and size, this thing is seriously small. Collapsed, it fits within my fist comfortably. It takes up hardly any room in my brain and for the ambient light output, it's totally worth it.I've even relied on the flashlight function in the base of the lantern one night when my headlamp died. Granted, there was a full moon, but it still came in handy.Whether you're out by yourself or with a group, the Orbit will treat you right.
Cool light, I have many types of flashlights some that weigh in 3-4 lbs. with all of the D batteries that it utilizes.. This compact light is pretty powerful for the size and perfect for the glove box.
It works great but not the best. It can hook to almost anywhere and you can adjust the brightness. I don't know if mine is broken but the light will go out and I'll have to turn it back on and then it will turn off again and the process repeats until I am done using it.
"Innovative design, Small size, works both as Flashlight and Lantern with Bright light,Good Quality"
Purchased this from Moosejaw! Really happy with the product, amount of light it generates from such a small sized body is surprising. This is the UPGRADED 2014 version of previous Orbit model from same company. One of the best overall LED lantern for camping, backpacking, as a tent lantern. I ordered it in bright orange color, is visually pleasing, the material does not feel cheap.This is well constructed; the case will not easily get dust or water inside due to IPX4 design. It fits well in palm of hand when used as flashlight. With split hook design, you can also hang it down from anywhere, say inside the tent from a hook or loop in the ceiling. The split metal hook at the top of this makes it possible. When not used, they lay down flush to the surface. This is a 2 in 1 lamp, It has one bigger LED inside, when the clear frosted area is pulled to extend the length of lantern, the whole clear area is used to diffuse LED light all around. Press the button once to be in this modeIt
