I screwed up. Not paying attention again (ADHD) and I bought the wrong charger for the Orbit. I needed the NRG2, not the NRG. The NRG is for the Apollo, the NRG2 is for the Orbit.
Rather than sending this little charger back, I decided to purchase an Apollo since I really liked the Orbit and thought, bigger may be more impressive. I was right, the Apollo rules! Orbit is pretty cool too! For light trips I take the Orbit, for car-camping or where I'm not worried about the weight, the Apollo is really nice to have.
Anyway, learn from my mistakes Orbit = NRG2 charger!
For the price you can buy an awful lot of batteries for it. It is rather nice to have the ability to just plug it in the night before and be ready to go with out having to keep a stock of AA's around. It's pretty much a personal call, but I'm glad I went ahead and purchased it. We'll have to see in the long haul how much it comes out ahead.
Don't let the idiots below scare you... This is VERY EASY to use with the Apollo lantern. Open battery compartment on bottom... insert battery. PLUG IN ... SIMPLE! I used my Apollo lantern every night during a recent 4 night trip. All on a single charge. Pays for itself after a few uses... AA's get very expensive
I am amazed at the longevity of a full charge. No other batteries compare. I have used this for 3 weeks, naybe 15 hours on the headlamp and the green loght >80% is still on. The price is high, but worth it. Getting stuck in the dark sucks.
I just bought this and couldn't find out how to hook the batteries up to recharge them. It says in the directions to pull back rubber piece and insert the charger into the batteries but there was no place to insert it. Also I have found that it is for the headlamp and Apollo latern but can't seem to get anyone to confim it. Gave it a 1 star cause I couldnt figure out how to hook it up and the direction sucked. I am sure it would be great if I could figure out how to hook it up.
Two Stars - for this reason. I work with a crew who spends almost all day inside big pipelines doing work. Every one of them wears a Black Diamond Icon because you can get this rechargeable kit for it, and it'll last all day. Unfortunately, I thought I'd be really cool & buy the new model of Icon. The new model takes four AA batteries, and it doesn't appear this rechargeable battery kit will work. If you buy this kit for your Icon, make sure it's a 3-battery model.
