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.

Works okIt 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.

Cool little light.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.

Great to have around.I got this to hang inside my tent. At the end I had out to light up my camp lot. Because some did not bring the propane for the lantern. It was enough light. Two thumbs up
