A bright, non-glaring, pocket-sized mini lantern, the ultra-lightweight Orbit is perfect for trekking and backpacking where gram shaving is crucial.
The 1 DoublePower LED boasts 60 lumens for the lantern (max setting) and 50 lumens for the flashlight, is enclosed inside a frosted globe that produces bright, non-glaring light. A unique dimming switch provides adjustable brightness. The Orbit uses 4 AAA alkaline batteries or NRG2 Rechargeable Battery Kit (sold separately).
In the April 2009 issue, Backpacker magazine says, "No, you don't need a lantern. But you'll want this one. It's a kitchen light, campfire, and reading lamp wrapped into 4.4 ounces."
