User Review: Black Diamond Apollo

It's Very Tough! I bought this and its little brother about a month ago. Well I had it for a few days, and went to an outdoor party. After a few drinks, I thought let's see if I can break it (I'm bad for that.)
Anyway I threw it in ice cold water that was keeping the keg cold and even submerged it for a few seconds. Then I threw it against the ground. I did this several times and it stayed lit most of the time. My friends were amazed! A hard hit will make it turn off. But it always turned back on.
The next morning I woke up and found it on the ground, and it had been rained on most of the night. So I tried it and it worked... But later the button would 'stick', it wouldn't turn off but dim and brighten constantly, plus the globe was damp on the inside. So, I let it sit for about 3 days and dry out and voila it was good as new!
I figured instead of a how much I love it type review, I would tell my experience about the abuse I gave it. However I don't recommend abusing your equipment on purpose!
