Rated 5 out of 5 by Eric from extreemly versatile camp lite this little light is really good around camp. Only downside is that it is heavier than most headlamps and takes 4 batteries too. Used it tent hiking and at a base camp for riding and climbing, is still small enough to hike with, but would usually stick with a headlamp. For camp however, this thing rocks, works well to light up a tent or a table. Can be used in flashlight mode to work or walk around camp too. The way the diffuser slides down over the on/off button helps save space and keeps it from accidently coming on. It also works to compliment headlamps at a climb site when building early morning anchors. Really great around the house too, works well as a pumpkin light, (weird, I know!).

Rated 1 out of 5 by cozycruiser from great concept, poor performance I received this as a gift and loved the idea. But it was temperamental from the start (sometimes it wouldn't turn on, sometimes it would turn on but blink out at the slightest movement) and now it doesn't work at all. I would NEVER take this product backpacking or even car camping because I wouldn't trust it to work properly when I need it. I've had great luck with Black Diamond headlamps, but the mini-lantern concept is a fail. It seems like a gimmick that just didn't get enough product testing before rollout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Evan from Excellent backpacking light My fiancee had this little gem stashed away for a while, I experienced it for the first time on this past weekends backcountry camping trip. This light hangs at the ideal height in the tent and provides the perfect amount of light (high or low) for the space thanks to the the dimming feature. Plus the fact that it doubles as a flashlight is great, if I need to leave the tent in the middle of the night I just reach for this if I don't want to put on my headlamp. Needless to say, this item has been added to my backpacking essentials checklist.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Richard b from Unreliable and cheap - avoid I bought this lantern based on other great gear from Black Diamond I've bought in the past. Hugely disappointed with this lantern. The springs holding the batteries in are so weak they rattle loose so the light seldom works. Fiddled with it a hundred times to no avail. Cheap workmanship. Tossed it on the bin an bought a competitors lantern (at half the price) that works perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ratna from Very temperamental I bought a Black Diamond Orbit, plus a rechargeable battery pack, a few years ago. It is one of the worst outdoor equipment purchases I have ever made. The extra battery pack never worked for more than a few seconds. I suspect the interface with the charger is so bad that the battery is never receiving a serious charge. The basic battery holder with 4 AAAs worked a bit better - but would still blink off unexpectedly at critical times. I sometimes use it at home, during routine power outages

Rated 2 out of 5 by Soapsuit from Used to work great... After a few years it does this weird thing where it wind stay lit. When I hold the button it just flashes. I’ve tried new batteries, cleaning the contacts etc. fortunately I had my headlight with me. I do t suggest you buy this lantern.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Matthew from Very Useful It is a little shorter and thicker in the base than the older version, but it is definitely more convenient to switch from lantern mode to flashlight mode. The new battery box design is nice too, but it doesn't feel as rigid as the older version did. The best thing about this lantern is that, unlike the older version, when the light is set to a lower brightness turned off and then turned back on, that previously set level of brightness remains.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kayaker from Don't depend on it for light This lantern, while a good idea, is terribly executed. It is completely unreliable for backcountry use as it often will not turn on. I have treated it gently and install new batteries when heading out, but it only works half the time. Don't depend on it for light. Completely unreliable.
