Handy Solar LED Light – Solar Powered 6-LED Flashlight Reviews

posted by naeco on 01/25/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Solar powered. - Reasonable build quality, should be fine for domestic use. - Brighter than expected. - Good size, not too small, not too big.
Cons:

- Needs exposure to strong sunlight to fully charge. Does not charge well, or at all, on a dull or overcast day.
- Non-serviceable, batteries seem to be sealed in.
Other:

- I wonder if there's a built-in diode to prevent reverse charging at night(?)
Bottomline:

- Buy a few and keep them by the window sill or in your car and they'll be ready when you need it.
