A great lantern,
This review is from: Black Diamond Equipment Apollo Lantern (Sports)
I use this lantern every weekend on a outdoor table. Doing so for about Two years. I alternate two sets of rechargeable
Batteries in it. Run it about 6-8 hrs at a time. The low self discharge Sanyo batteries are the way to roll close to home. For packing
Out with no charger I'd use the Energizer ultimate lithium. Light weight and won't leak in storage like alkalines. All my friends bought one after seeing mine. One left alkalines in it stored for a few months and the leaked. Corroded the batt holder. Had to wire brush and baking soda it. It works but usually have to press batteries in hard before putting cap back on. I strongly suggest if you want to store it for over a couple weeks to do so empty, OR us rechargeable Nickel metal or lithium as they won't leak. I own a couple of these but would like two more. Perfect for gifts.
