Bright and ultra-packable the Black Diamond Orbit Lantern is a pocket-sized collapsible lantern crossed with a powerful flashlight for versatile travel-friendly lighting. A lightweight version of our popular Voyager the Orbit features a super-bright DoublePower LED in a frosted globe for 105 lumens of power in latern mode and a DoublePower LED in the bottom for 50 lumens of power in flashlight mode.

The dimming function allows you to adjust the light to your needs while the collapsible design stores easily in your pack.

This worked great for the first 2 years that I used it. Now it only turns on when it feels like it. You press the button but nothing happens most of the time. It was my favorite lamp inside my tent, but now I can no longer use it.
I have an orbit lantern that does not have a flashlight on the bottom. It looks like the orbit lantern on your site but without the flashlight. When I turn it on, it will not light. Rather, if you keep your finger on the "on" button, there is a flashing light only. What does this mean? Click, once, twice, three times, nothing happens.
This lantern, while a good idea, is terribly executed. It is completely unreliable for backcountry use as it often will not turn on. I have treated it gently and install new batteries when heading out, but it only works half the time. Don't depend on it for light. Completely unreliable.
