Black Diamond Mini Orbit Lantern Review

Black Diamond Mini Orbit Lantern
This little light has 3 different light options. High lantern, low-light lantern and when you extend the body out, it can even be a flashlight! Awesome! At 4x2x2" and weighing just 3 ounces, it's super small and easily packable. 

This is with the body extended showing the bright flashlight mode. It's not super bright, but if you were just heading out of the tent for a bathroom break or to grab something, it does just fine. 

This is in the bright lantern mode. We use this on almost all of our trips now. It's great to have hanging from the top of the tent when setting up your tent and when turning in for the night. In cold weather, when hiding from the elements, we've been in the tent playing games and hanging out for quite a while. Have yet to replace the batteries. They seem to last a long time with fairly heavy use. 

We attached a tiny carabiner to it and hung it from the center of the tent. 
My 12 year old is pointing at it to show you scale. 

I picked up this little gem at REI for $29
Comes in 5 different colors.


  • Triple-power LED bulb with 105-lumen brightness enclosed in a frosted globe for bright, ambient light in lantern mode
  • Double-power LED bulb with 50-lumen brightness rests in the bottom chamber for a powerful, precision beam in flashlight mode
  • Dual-reflector system captures and maximizes light output for increased visibility
  • Single, easy-to-use switch transitions between flashlight, lantern and dual (lantern and flashlight both illuminated) modes
  • Runs on 4 AAA batteries (not included) and lasts up to 70 hours on low setting
  • Collapsible double-hook hang loop for easy positioning and storage
  • 4x2x2 and weighs just 3 ounces.
