Rated 3 out of 5 by Sera from what does flashing light mean? 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Andrew from Solid tent lantern I like bringing this when I'm camping alone or in my own tent. It works well and the bonus of working as a flashlight is good when you don't have your headlamp handy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kayaker from Don't depend on it for light 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chuck from Not quite as good as the original It's not as bright, and moving the led to the bottom instead of the top seems to douse it further. Still a good little lantern, just not quite as good as before.

Rated 1 out of 5 by John from Two duds I purchased 2 Orbits from REI two years ago. One is completely dead. The other one functions in lantern mode only. 1 year warranty. I guess I’m out of luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lanternman from Nightlight Have a 1st generation Orbit as a bedside nightlight using Eneloop aaa batteries. Has held up great and I bought it second hand at a flea market! Use it EVERY nite. Cannot wear it out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cozycruiser from Replaced under warranty—2nd one works great My first one was a lemon, I guess. I filed a warranty claim as suggested and received a replacement almost immediately. So far it's working perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by cozycruiser from great concept, poor performance I received this as a gift and loved the idea. But it was temperamental from the start (sometimes it wouldn't turn on, sometimes it would turn on but blink out at the slightest movement) and now it doesn't work at all. I would NEVER take this product backpacking or even car camping because I wouldn't trust it to work properly when I need it. I've had great luck with Black Diamond headlamps, but the mini-lantern concept is a fail. It seems like a gimmick that just didn't get enough product testing before rollout.
