Rated 5 out of 5 by RLP Reliable, top-performer!
Just purchased this in time for a camping trip with our travel trailer to a state campground (typically do not have hook-ups). It worked above and beyond our expectations. I might buy another one (... so my husband has his own and stops "borrowing" mine!) The flashlight never ran out of solar generated power, and, it was used a lot (preparing dinner, washing up dishes, trips to the 'restroom' by several people, and some bedtime reading).

Okay, a solar powered flashlight. Try to wrap your mind around that and then check this flashlight out. It's super bright, durable and easy to use. The only downside is that you can't control brightness. Other than that does a great job and lasts forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LCCM Tested It
I received my flashlight a few days ago. It had a charge right out of the packaging. The yellow flashlight is more of a greenish-yellow color. I charged it for a day in the sun then left it on all night. After running continuously for 8 hours, using the solar energy only, the light was still on. The beam had decreased in brightness significantly but was on. I turned it off only because I had to go to work. When the solar battery is charged, the beam is stronger using the solar battery than the traditional battery. I love that I can have a flashlight run on solar power with the protection of a battery backup. I intend to buy one for each of the cars in the family.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Landplanner Great at 1st, rechargeable battery Not replacable
I received one of these about 5 years ago and beginning last year the rechargeable battery connected to the solar panel will not hold a charge for more than an hour, no matter how many full sun hours the unit is charged. The rechargeable battery is sealed in an un-accessible place and is not replaceable.

Love the fact that this is solar powered. However, due to a little arthritis in my hands I cannot turn the light on or off. Also, the beam is not adjustable. Fix those two things and it will be perfect.

We have had this item for two weeks - so far so good, We keep it in our kitchen for emergencies. We wanted something long-lasting and waterproof for emergencies. We keep our flashlight in the kitchen near the sink - our last flashlight rusted -from water - this one claims to be waterproof and once charged, that the battery charge is long lasting. For us, It charged after placing in direct sunlight for 12 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanShopperVermont Long lasting, versatile, kid friendly flashlight
Since Jan. 2010, I have bought 5 of these flashlights for myself, family and friends. The original one is still working well and I haven't replaced a battery yet. It is light weight, durable, reliable, easy and fun to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeangreatfan Excellent flashlight
I use it in at night going up and downstairs in my large house and being able to not turn lights on and off when searching for things in a darkened room. Makes a difference in my electric bill. Put it in the window to recharge. It has a bright light and a low light. I have it in yellow. I highly recommend it.

Great product, lightweight, bright light. Love the idea that I may never have to buy batteries again! Perfect for walking my dog after the sun sets.

The flashlight works fine. It has a bright light. The on-and-off button is a bit hard to push.
