High light

This is a great lantern with only one minor issue. First, the good points... It's quite bright, without having the retina searing qualities of propane or gas lights. Although you might not want to do color-matching of paint swatches with it, it's bright enough to do anything around camp with it. Battery longevity is very good. I've had mine for over a year with the same batteries, and they're still going. I've also dropped it once on the garage floor and it didn't break. It's collapsable when not in use. The only issue is that it throws light downward (not to the sides so much) and isn't great as a table light. If you use it, hang it on a branch or high point. I ended up buying a lantern stand to hang it on. On a 7 foot stand it will illuminate a circle diameter of fifty feet or more. The interlocking 2 half-hook system allows you to hang it easily on branches without having to thread the hook.

This lantern is a beast, but it does a great job lighting up the camp ground. Sure it isn't as bright as a gas lantern, but try taking one of those into a tent full of family (not a good idea). I really like how this lamp stores (collapsable), and the fact that I can ward off a badger with a swing or two. Only complain I have about this lamp, is I wish it had legs like their Apollo model. This unit is definitely meant to be hung high, as sitting it on the ground, or pick-i-nik table projects most of the light in a smaller radius. Anyway, if you're camping with the family, and the car aint too far, this is an awesome lamp!

If you can only have one lantern....

This lantern has been my trusted companion for several years. It is the first thing I pull out when the power goes out and my go-to lighting source for camping. Yes this is used by most people for car camping but I always suck it up and carry it with me on multiday backpacking trips. My friends always appreciate it when we set up camp in areas where we can't have a fire. I've dropped it, spilled water on it, and woke up with frost on it and the thing keeps ticking with long battery life to boot! There are a lot of options for lanterns out there and I own others but if I could only have one this would be it!

Nice lantern

The Titan is the first practical LED lantern I've run across. It's not nearly as bright as a gas lantern, but of course it doesn't get hot and it won't asphyxiate you inside a tent. Too heavy & bulky for backpacking, it's best used for car camping, picnics, power failures, etc. Besides its high price, its biggest drawback is that it emits light out & down only, so it needs to be hung up for best effect. To that end, it has a nifty split handle that allows it to be hung from a tree branch or a line. Overall, it's a sturdy, compact lantern that's bright enough for a whole campground, if set up properly.

Works Great

I use this when setting up a camping spot you basically drive into at like national parks, or the beach.

It actually works really great. I just hang it up under one of our pop up shade tents in the evenings and it lights up a huge area around us. It also works fine if you want to put it on a table while you are eating, or need to walk into darker areas off the camp grounds for any reason. LEDs I think let the batteries last longer, so I actually value this over some of the other options.

Good Car Camping Lantern

I bought the two lanterns that had the highest lumens ratings and compared them. They were the Black Diamond Titan and the Revere 30-Day. I expected the Titan to be better because I own a Black Diamond Orbit lantern that I sometimes bring backpacking and I like it. However, I compared the two in a blackened room and the Revere was brighter. Weight was not a factor because you will not take this kind of lantern backpacking. The Titan seems perhaps a bit sturdier, but not enough to make a difference. I really wanted the brightest lantern I could find.
Jim_Chico at Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS) on 08/08/2012
Overall quality is excellent. Quality of light is very good with a nice even spread with no artifacts. Light color is at the cooler (blue) end of the spectrum. Unlike other LED lights there are no blue fringes creeping in. Over all it is a very good well made lantern. The light is well controlled in a cone around the lantern with a sharp downward angle. This keeps the lantern light out of your eyes, no glare!!! This is a very good thing as this is a common problem with many LED lanterns. Glare can make a bright lantern unuseable.

Nice lamp. Can compress down a few inches shorter for storage or traveling. The hang loop splits apart to allow easy hanging with durable hooks. Another nice feature is the dimming switch. Allows you to preserve battery life. All in all it is a really nice, durable camp lantern. Easy to pack and easy to use. Best features are the dual, split hanging loops, the dimmer option, and the ability to compress the lantern for travel.

Seen by, not heard.

While not the equal of large white gas or propane fuel lanterns in light output, it approaches or exceeds the output of my tiny Snowpeak isobutane lanterns. It's a great area light (a great thing in rattlesnake habitat) especially when hung high, and best of all, it's quiet, unlike any vapor-fueled lantern. Its size, weight, & burntime compare very favorably with vapor fuel appliances, and it's safe inside a tent. What's not to like?

Very bright with long run time. Costly!!

I'd been wanting a Black Diamond Titan ever since they came out, but I choked on the $80 price tag. When it finally went on sale recently I just couldn't say no. The Titan is hands-down the best and brightest LED lantern around, but if you can wait, get it on sale. Or even better, be patient and a competitor will certainly offer an equally great product at a more reasonable price eventually.

Negative Reviews:

needs improvement

The good: small and well-made.
The bad: heavy; expensive; very difficult to slide the clear casing up and down to vary the amount of light; and the lantern needs to be positioned very high for adequate light emission (if you hold it too low or place it on a picnic bench the emitted light will extend out a very short distance from the lantern).

Not happy with it

I can't open the product to load its batteries.
Rich at Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS) on 12/12/2012

Neutral Reviews:

I've been using the Black Diamond Apollo Lantern for backpacking for a few years now. It is one of my favorite pieces of lighting gear. I mention that because I purchased the Titan expecting similar--but so much brighter--results for our camping trips. Given its size (especially when compared to the Apollo), I expected the Titan to cast a bigger and brighter light. It's just not that bright for its size. It's rated at 250 lumens; however, the way the light is cast makes it seem quite a bit less brighter, and when you hang the lantern there is a large dark spot underneath. Replacing 4 D batteries gets expensive, and those batteries don't seem to last as long as they should! Setting the lantern on its lowest setting does extend the life of the light. I bought the Titan in part to replace having to hassle with our Coleman white gas lantern, so maybe my expectations were too high. To be sure, this lantern has a beautiful design, but that might be its bright spot.

Great light but noisy at low power

I found the lamp to be very bright and it will be part of my contingency plan for blackouts here in the northeast US. I like that the light is adjustable but it gives a bit of a high pitched whistle when used on low power which some might find irritating. I'll probably only use it on high power (no noise) and use some of the smaller Black Diamond lanterns which I own for areas which don't need the lumen level that this big lamp provides. I have not found that the smaller lanterns make any noise at all.
Post-Sandy Survivor at Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS) on 11/11/2012

Great lamp, but whines when dimmed

This is a great camp lantern which lasts many hours due to the 4 D batteries. These heavy batteries give the lantern its lit longevity but they also make for a heavy lantern--this is not a backpacker's lantern.

The only drawback is that the one I got has a serious whining sound when you dim it. Black Diamond warranty department said I could return to them or to the store (since I just purchased it), either way they would stand behind their product.
