"The Black Diamond Orbit Lantern is super small, light, and with the super awesome dimmer switch, is easy to get the appropriate level of brightness. The Orbit has two separate hooks that make hanging this bright little guy from anything a snap."
The Black Diamond Orbit Lantern is designed for ounce-conscious backpackers, climbers and travelers, packing 45 lumens of bright, non-glaring light in an ultra-portable package. A DoublePower LED works with our dual reflector system and frosted globe to illuminate everything from tent-bound reading to pre-dawn racking. The unique dimming switch provides the optimal amount of light and helps conserve batteries, while the collapsible, double-hook hang loop attaches to tent ceilings and tree branches alike.
The Black Diamond Orbit Lantern is the perfect gift for those who count every ounce in their pack and can't be bothered with ducking headlamp beams at basecamp. This collapsible mini lantern has a dimming switch and handy double hook that you can hang it from in your tent or from the nearest branch or you can put up both hooks to form for even more attachment options. Great for reading, cooking, or just sitting around and having a conversation. The Orbit is perfect for those situations where you need a little light but can't spare a hand to hold it. This is powered by four AAA batteries or the NGR2 rechargeable battery that can be used over and over again keeping your waste down. Perfect for use in areas where camp fires may not be available due to fire hazards, like many areas around Tucson in the summer or if you just want to keep your impact on the environment down.
The pocket-sized, ultra-lightweight Black Diamond Orbit lantern utilizes a full 1-Watt LED bulb to provide ounce-counting backpackers with bright, non-glaring illumination. Despite weighing just 3 oz (not including batteries) the Orbit serves as a powerful, reliable light source.
Shed grams from your pack with a low-weight light source that fits into your pocket with the Orbit Lantern from Black Diamond. Perfect for fast-and-light adventures, this single watt LED with a frosted globe casts a non-glaring, bright light with a dual reflector system that maximizes light output.

Good lightweight lantern for hanging at the top of your tent. Light enough to take backpacking... unless you are very minimal ultralight oriented. I personally enjoy having this as well as my headlamp when backpacking.
Not exactly cheap for a little light. Not exactly necessary if you have a headlamp. However, it is a nice useful addition and I would recommend it to others.
As for non backpacking purposes. You can never have too many lights when camping with family and kids. Having small easy to use lights with dimming features is awesome. Hang this one from the tent, add an Apollo lantern for other needs or bathroom duty. Light, small and awesome.
This thing just doesnt work for me. It goes through batteries very quick and at the same time I could just use my headlamp and a light defuser to do the same thing and not carry anything extra. I would consider a gas lantern like what primus makes because it will be lighter, brighter and give off some heat for winter camping or when there is a fire ban. And if you use a jetboil most of the time you will already have the fuel and not need a bunch of extra batteries.
