Great product very durable too.
TinKin'
For its size, it puts out enough light to use as an area light and easily adjusts down to lower light levels for tent use.
Hank Hancock
Collapsed, it's very small - about the size of a can of soup.

Okay, I admit that I am a flashlight (torch, if you are a Brit) junkie, especially LED types. So that's the bias, but that also qualifies me as somewhat of an expert -- well, somewhat. In any event I am very pleased with the build and design of this LED lantern. It is a quality, durable, functional piece of equipment that will last and serve you well. I may even get another one (his and hers when camping). If you can live with the price tag, then it is a good purchase. Even for seldom needed emergency use, a large package of alkaline AA batteries from Costco and one of these lanterns would be a lot safer and more practical than candles.
Also, as noted in the product description, dimmed down the manufacturer says you will get 60 hours of light. It's not the best intensity of light dimmed to that level, but it would be practical and viable for many uses (similar to 'nightlight' intensity). On 'high' you get pretty good light, but only 15 hours of use using the 4 AA alkaline batteries required. But with a large, discount package of batteries on hand that's not a concern for me, because the shelf life of fresh batteries is years and like I said, they are not too expensive if purchased at a place like Costco. Also, there is a plug-in for an adapter accessory (not supplied) if you don't want to use batteries, but that doesn't appeal to me. I might also add that intensity of light is one thing, but the way the light is reflected is another issue. With some LEDs, sure, you have an intense enough light output, but they cast, or reflect the light in a way that makes it uncomfortable to read by. Not so with this lantern. It is very comfortable to read by (at the high intensity level -- 15 hours duration), and that is important for me.

LED's are simply amazing and they have caused nothing short of a revolution in the lighting sector. Just go to any high end lighting store on the internet and browse some of the new LED lights and you will quickly understand what I mean by revolution. Some of the lights now available are just downright amazing. Lighting has never been this much fun. While LED lights for camping aren't quite as exciting or revolutionary as some of the stuff being introduced in the home lines, its still worthy of excitement especially for people that are used to old school candle lanterns.

The Apollo from Black Diamond is certainly one of the best options currently available. The Apollo is a 3 watt light which can achieve a light intensity of 50 lumens. The design, with its frosted globe and dual reflectors, eliminates any sort of glare even when your looking right at it. Its really an ingenious design. You simply pull up on the housing and pull down the 3 sets of legs and your done. There is a dimming switch so you can adjust the overall output of the light which is great for extending battery life. The bottom of the legs are coated with a very sticky black rubber thus giving the legs amazing traction. Overall, when extended with all 3 legs down, the lantern is 9.5" high. It takes 4 AA batteries or you can purchase the NRG Rechargeable Battery Kit which is what I definitely recommend. I actually purchased 2 of them so I can backpack with an extra battery. Last but not least it has a battery power indicator with green, yellow and red LEDs which display the amount of battery power left. When using the NRG rechargeable battery The indicator shows the charging status of the NRG battery.

While 3 watts may not sound like much, trust me it is, especially when your in pitch darkness.

This lantern has quite a few things going for it. Collapsed, it's very small - about the size of a can of soup. The 3W LED puts out a decent amount of light, even running off 1.2V NiMH AAs (it might be a tad bit brighter w/ alkalines, or their proprietary NRG battery pack, though I'm guessing lithiums might be too much for it). The dimmer works well, and has a clever feedback method - it blinks once at the top or bottom of the range, and then starts over again if you continue to hold. Oddly, the battery level LEDs are covered by the bottom of the diffuser when it's open all the way, but that doesn't seem like the end of the world (they claim 50 hours on a set of batteries, though that's likely dimmed all the way, which is still usable).

Color Name: Ultra White Verified Purchase
Maybe I should have expected less, but I expected that a product from Black Diamond would last more than one year before failing. It was used six times, for festival camping. At these festivals, it was never in the rain or in direct sun - it hung inside my pop-up canopy, or stood on a table in the same sheltered space. When it was not being used it was stored in a dry location, indoors. The unit failed on the last trip. I was shocked to discover that the problem was that one of the interior elements (connecting battery to unit) was fried/blackened. I am going to return the lamp to Amazon. It is probably too late to get a refund, but I have no use for a non-functioning lamp.

This is a decent product that gives off a nice bright light. My only issue with it is the price. At half the price, the Coleman 3AA MicroPacker LED Lantern is a better deal with nearly the same light intensity. The Black Diamond Apollo is an overall better product. It delivers a more even light and has a variable dimmer capability to allow for a more customizable lighting level.
