Rated 5 out of 5 by Schraderfan Crank Flashlight, Mini
This is a great flashlight. Always ready to use with just a few cranks...no need to purchase anymore batteries. The hand crank is easy to use and produces a bright light. Don't buy just one, you'll want one in your car, in your tote bag, by your bedside, in your tool box for traveling, for gifts, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Reta Flashlight
Recently I used my flashlight during a power outage. Then bought 2 for friends who had been left in the dark. One might also be kept in the car. The size and shape make the light easy to use. It's useful to have for emergencies..

Rated 4 out of 5 by llbeanershopaholic Nice little flashlight, but did not last
We bought these for our children, and they loved them! They worked great for a day and then one of them stopped charging. My boys did not beat on them, they just used them a lot-cranking is so much fun to a 4 year old! I do have to admit customer service would get a 5 star, because they replaced the one that stopped working. It's been a month and so far no more problems-except that the other one now clinks and skips when turning to charge-but it still charges. They're a perfect size for kid-hands or for purse-packing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by FranklyBean Perfect for my trip to Africa!
This flashlight was great for my 2-week visit to Africa, esp where there was rolling blackouts or really anywhere we went where there was no electricity. I love how compact this was and the colors are great for spotting in your backpack!

Rated 1 out of 5 by sunnyweather Does not charge any more
This is second time we had crank type flashlight that failed. Both times, it was OK for a month or so. Then it stopped charging. And I can get only a few seconds of light. Where we live right now, we constantly have power failure. So I am shopping for something else more reliable. Once we return to USA, I will return these items to L.L.Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Birdie12 Hubby's favorite flash light...
My husband got this over Christmas, and he just loves it! I think it's almost like a toy to him. It's easily his favorite flash light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HappierOnTheIsland Perfect for the glove box
Easy to pack in the glove compartment or wherever. "Palm-size" describes it perfectly. After toting around a big lantern flashlight in the back of the car for years as instructed, it is a pleasure to depend on this little light instead for emergency light needs. Holds its charge well (at least for the 3 months I've had it).
I got one for everyone in the household after they saw mine. Easy to crank and recharge. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it provides a bright light, but in a limited pattern, not wide spread (which would be perfect).

Rated 4 out of 5 by llbeanfan79 Great for all ages
Last year I bought this flashlight for my husband, father, FIL, & 2 sons aged 5 & 3 at the time. My youngest son has a habit of playing with a flashlight & forgetting to turn it off. I love that I don't have to worry about that now! My FIL's flashlight didn't work from the start. Thankfully there's a lifetime guarantee. They sent a new one with no questions asked.

Use this light to read in bed so it doesn't wake anyone else up in the night. Like because it doesn't use batteries!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pickletoes Great item!
I like the size & weight of this mini-crank flashlight; it has a bright
(LED-great light) light that not only creates a focused wide beam, but allows some radiant light on the sides, also.
It seems to me that this is going to be an asset as a dependable, available flashlight when needed in emergencies. Need to pick up some more....great as gifts.....
