Yogi Bear goes New Tech with the Black Diamond Apollo Lantern

BD Apollo2

Gizmo geeks, we all know what season is around the corner. No I am not talking about summer but camping season. Unfortunately if you are like me, many of you still have equipment handed down to you from your parents and maybe some of it should be upgraded.

One of the devices I plan to replace is my old heavy lantern. Looking at the various options online, Black Diamond has come up with a very light (just 220g weight with the batteries) Apollo Lantern.

Although targeted somewhat to mountain climbers, this lantern is ideal for camping in your local park. Features include a dim adjusting switch and a double-hook loop and leg that allow you to hang it just about anywhere.

Product Specifications

  • LED Type : Double power (3-watt)
  • Batteries : 4 AA not included
  • Max Burn Time : 60 Hours
  • Colors: Dark Shadow & White
  • Lumens : 80 with a 20 meter diameter
  • Weight: 220 g, 7.8 oz (With Batteries)
  • Dual reflector system captures and maximizes light output
  • Power meter displays charge status or battery level for NRG Rechargeable Battery Kit (sold separately) or 4 AA alkaline
  • Unique dimming switch provides adjustable brightness
  • Distinctive fold-down legs increase lantern height to 24.1 centimeters (9.5 in), maximizing light dispersion
  • Collapsible, double-hook hang loop
