Good enough – Solar Powered/Hand-Crank 2-Mode 3-LED White Light Flashlight Reviews

posted by bussemann on 03/04/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Solid build, crank function seems good, cheap, 2 light settings, everready.
Cons:
Must have an adapter cable for usb. Batteries are not connected to usb output, you must crank to charge anything, but the solarpanels are in any case too small to give any usefull charge for anything besides lighting.
Other:
Would have been better with a buildt in usb port, and a bigger battery, or perhaps an ultracapacitor?.
Bottomline:
For emergency use and hiking it is great. Never worry about batteries, and in a pinch you can make a "crank call", powering your dying cellphone by the crank. Well worth the money
