Redesigned to make it brighter, easier to use and smaller to stow away. A must have on any trip where you want to shed light on the evenings activities. It can be charged with a USB or take AA batteries and then it can charge up your phone!
Black Diamond says:
Whether you’re cooking on the tailgate, playing cards in camp or sorting gear in the tent, the Black Diamond Apollo Lantern provides 225 lumens of bright, glare-free and fully adjustable light. The Apollo runs on either its internal rechargeable lithium ion battery or standard alkalines, and the lantern also charges handheld electronics via an external USB port. The redesigned housing features a collapsible double-hook loop for hanging in the tent or on a tree, as well as folding legs for setting on a table. Strobe and dimming modes allow for custom lighting, and a power meter displays for both alkalines and the internal rechargeable battery.
Black Diamond's 2017 Apollo Lantern is a great basecamp option. With the ability to stand up on a table or be hung up and with the ability alter the brightness, from 10 to 250 Lumens, this is a great lantern. The frosted design mean that the lantern is glare free and depending on the brightness will illuminate anywhere from 2-14 metres.
The simple design still has space for two charging cables, can be set up in different ways and has so far shown to be very durable. Despite the extra weight I am willing to carry this for sociable nights camping or in a Bothy because it works so well. When car camping it's one of the first things packed, fully charged and with spare batteries for longer trips.
