User Review: Black Diamond Apollo
Source: received it as a personal gift
It does weigh a bit for backpacking, but I like to car camp too. The light can be very bright, but is almost infinitely adjustable. It is built well and has a split ring mounting hook on top.
- Adjustable light output
- Compact, Lumens-per-size ratio is high
- Good light dispertion, very diffuse
- Great battery life
- Super easy to use. No secret codes on the buttons
- It has cool battery level lights
- A bit heavy for ultra light backpacking (but maybe worth it)
I got this as a Christmas present from my daughter. I did hint just a bit.
I love this light. I have replaced the florescent light on my desk with it. I am writing this review by Apollo light. If you want to be green buy this light, get 4 rechargeable AA batteries and a solar charger. With this setup you can replace a light in your house with a sustainable light (Very Eco friendly).
This light can easily replace a reading light or a desk light. Outdoors the light gives out very even light cast. Walking about I can see a good 20'(7m) around the light. I will add to the review after spring camping.
