Rated 4 out of 5 by dwtruck Very practical gift
Have only used this light a couple of times but has worked well. The charging options (ie: without the need for batteries or AC) makes this device great for camping, hiking, or auto. Does not have the "runtime" advertised but very close
Would definitely recommend..

Rated 2 out of 5 by MTEN Prior Model No Longer Holds a Charge
We bought the older model without the solar panel for our son to use for Scouts. It no longer holds a charge. I see the current description indicates that the battery never needs to be replaced? I don't think we'll pay the return shipping to try another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 Small but puts our lots of light.
I like the small size of the unit and the ease of charging it. I have it ready in case of a power failure at night. Makes it much safer to walk around in the dark.

I owned an old model without the 'solar' capability & used it for a couple of years without problems ... Until I lost it! The replacement is a little bulkier, but the solar is nice and helps me get the battery fully charged. I never had the patience to crank the older model enough! Hopefully the slightly larger size will help me to not lose it as easily!

Rated 1 out of 5 by HikerScott Bring back the old crank ...
First solar crank failed, and the second flashlight failed ... they both would not hold a charge. You had to crank the flashlight all the time for any light. LLB PLEASE bring back the "Crank Flashlight" without the solar, they were GREAT!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Amethyst4292 Love this item....but....
My S/O and I each have the mini crank flashlight. We got ours prior to the new shape & solar of this new one. We actually prefer the shape of the older one because it fit right in the palm of your hand & fit in your pocket. This one is a little bigger than the old version, but we are sure the person we bought it for will like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dollarpincher cool light
I'd bought a bigger solar flashlight with crank from LL Bean a year or so ago and like it, but its switch is somewhat hard to push on so my wife didn't like it, but this time I got the smaller solar flashlight with crank and both she and I love it: it's light, easy to turn on, and casts a bright light. May have to buy another for my self so we don't ni this one away from each other!
