Rated 5 out of 5áby GrandpaJ Great Flashlight
For such a small size flashlight with a very big size light. That and the fact it does not need battries and you have a great winner!

Rated 4 out of 5áby LordofSipon Very Versatile Flashlight
So far so good! This flashlight charges in the sun, has battery power when you need it and is fairly small and bright. I don't know about the waterproof quality. If it works in water (which I haven't used it for this as yet), I would give it five (5) stars.

Rated 5 out of 5áby GentleSunbeam Works well
I love this flashlight. It is pretty bright, waterproof, and sturdy. I was a little disappointed to find that it uses coin (watch) batteries as back-up instead of AA or another standard battery but that is a minor issue since you can use solar energy to charge it. The bigger disappointment was that I found the exact same flashlight for half the price not long ago somewhere else. That is my own fault though for not shopping around more. It really is a wonderful flashlight though.

Rated 5 out of 5áby WhiskMagic Best Item I've Seen In Years - Just Buy One
Generally I don't review products, but this item is exceptional.
As you see, it gets very good reviews, and with good reason.
Used a pair of these lights as our primary camp lights on a 8 day climb of Kilimanjaro and a subsequent 10 day photo safari in Serengeti. Gave both a full charge in a sunny window sill before we left the US. Both lights got daily use in very rugged conditions. Recharged them on afternoon 6 of the climb by leaving them sitting on a sunny rock for a few hours, and recharged again a week later in Serengeti. Bright light, no outages, no flickering. A red 'warning' light appears to come on when the charge is beginning to get low, I don't think this is mentioned in the ad for the lights. Their waterproof construction kept out all the dirt and dust, which is extensive in Africa. All in all an excellent product.
One hint - the lighter colored lights (like the yellow) provide more ambient light as some illumination comes through the barrel of the light. The darker colored barrels provide for a more focused beam with little ambient light, just depends on what you like. We used the yellow light most, as the "leak through" light illuminated the entire inside of the tent.
All in all a great product. Plan to buy several more.

Rated 5 out of 5áby TulsaAggieMom Loving it...
I've used this product only a month or so but It's affordable, it's super light (I carry it on my daily sunrise walks); the solar panel basks in the daylight while I'm at work so I'm fairly certain frequent battery replacement won't be necessary. The neon color helps oncoming cars spot me easily walking in the dark. The only thing I haven't had a chance to check out yet is the 'waterproofing' since my state is suffering from 2 straight years of drought. What's not to like?

This flashlight was bought as a gift as I've owned one just like it for many years. We love it here and it has never failed. We've owned many other flashlights in the past and this one continues to last and be reliable.

Rated 2 out of 5áby BuytheBean Doesn't do what they say it does.
I really wanted to like this light. The instructions say after 8 hours of a solar charge you'll get 12 hours of light. Not so unfortunately. I tried 3 separate lights all charged properly. Turned them on and left them on and all I got was three hours of light. Even LL Bean is going to look into the problem. Customer service was fantastic. I had to send all three back. The light that it gave out was very good and the battery backup is nice, but if you need more than 3 hours of continuous light on a solar charge this isn't the light for you.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Horse94 A Really Great LED Flashlight
I have tried several LED flashlights and most have been disappointing in some way or another. I was totally surprised to see how well this unit works, and it exceeded my expectations. I was so pleased with it that I ordered another one. It appears to be well made, and I hope to have many years of satisfactory performance and service from it.

We keep a flash light in every room because we have frequent outages. Have not needed this new one yet, but we find the solar option amazing: nothing to wind, no batteries to run out of.
Slender design, easily stashed .
