The collapsible tripod legs make it easy to stand it up anywhere and the clip on the top allows it to hang anywhere too (pack a little carabiner). It throws a nice bright light, and the dimmer switch is really nice. I only use it when I need it (i.e. I don't keep it ON for long periods of time) while cooking, reading, setting up tent, washing up after meals - so I can't comment on battery life, but I've never had a problem with the batteries running out on me afield. The collapsible feature makes it easy to store and it's not too much weight that I'd want to leave it behind.
Love this little thing. I mostly bought this for hiking since most of my hikes involve some sort of pre-dawn travel. It's super light weight, very bright and I like the versatility of being able to hang it or have it free standing. The only complaint I have is that I wish I could have purchased the NRG battery with the lantern as a packaged deal. Though regular rechargeable AA work well enough.
Product works great, is very durable, lightweight, and portable. I brought this about a year ago and use it constantly. I have used it for camping, when I'm not camping it stays in the cup holder of my truck. Gives off good light, batteries last a while(always use lithium). Stands up with the collapsible tripod legs, hangs anywhere with the clip on top. Overall good light, a little small like I said fits in a cup holder.
After going through at least a half dozen other cheaper LED lanterns, we finially invested in the Apollo. It's worth every penny. Built solid, easy to use. Nice stand, and great varible light control. Highly recomneded!
