Black Diamond Apollo Lantern
« on: January 02, 2018, 12:15:40 PM »
found this elsewhere and I am posting it cos it is the only lantern (design) I liked.

I do not like conventional lanterns, because of the beam shape they cast. If it is to work properly it has to light around AND down too.
For that reason I use flashlights with lantern diffusers.

But looked how elegantly they made the design multipurpose. Able to stand and illuminate in a true 180deg arc, and hungable too.
Of the rest of the features, the ability to work either on the internal LiIon battery or on 3 AAs is a plus!

OH8STN gave this lantern high praise in a recent video.  That's a reliable endorsement!  Might pick one up soon...
