I had intended to quantify various aspects of this unit like, brightness over time for winding and solar charging. In the end, this was difficult to do because as the unit loses power, it puts out less light and then uses less power. I have left the light on for a couple days, upside down, with nothing to recharge it and the unit continues to put out some amount of light. So you can't say you'll get X lumens over Y time for Z number of cranks. In a way, this could be thought of as a good feature of the light.

So with a minute of cranking, I definitely get an hours worth of fairly bright light usage. With a day of solar charging, the light is initially bright when first turned on but again, the degradation of light is slight over time so it is hard to discern when it has gone from bright to not.

The best thing about this unit is that it is relatively light and rugged as compared to a glass globed butane lantern and its accompanying fuel. You can carry this for weeks and not worry about running out of fuel or without having to carry the weight of fuel. You also have less concern about breaking globes and mantels. It is also safer. My friends and I have put a few holes in rain shelters from hanging lanterns that got too hot or flared when lighting. It's not indestructible. It is fairly plain plastic, but still more rugged than glass. So unless something happens in the future, I see myself converting from a fuel lantern to this for backpacking use.

On the cons side, I wish the unit would collapse in some way. The globe is, after all, mostly empty space. I also do not think that the globe/reflector is the most effective way of distributing the light. Most of the light seems to point down rather than out.

The lantern is small, but the light quite bright -- brighter than I expected. As another review noted, it does seem to get slightly dimmer as the battery goes down. But it's very easy to recharge by winding. Or charge during the day with the solar charging. It's a great little lantern, but...

The product description mentions charging it with a "120V Wall charger or 12V Car Charger". It does not say that those options are only available if you purchase those adapters separately. They do not come with the lantern. Likewise, emergency cell phone charging is only possible with a separately purchased adapter.

The lantern is great. I think it's still worth the price, but be sure you understand what is in the box and what is not.

This is one of those one in a hundred products that is as good as they say it is. The solar panel will work from something as small as a night light. It's bright, it's tough and durable, and has a red indicator light to show you if it's taking a charge.
I'm not the least bit bothered by the optional wall charger. Between the hand crank which works effortlessly and the great solar panel I can't see any reason to plug it in....it's an emergency light not a table lamp! You can probably buy a plug in phone charger at any ebay seller.
If I could redesign it I'd make the ON/OFF button larger and easier to find. I"m ordering these as Christmas presents for friends and family . (BTW the 24.00 unit offered by LLBean looks AWFULLY familiar..sam Chinese producer?).

Length: 1:55 Mins
Summary of the video.

Pros:
- hand crank
- solar charging
- disperses light
- has a handle to hang it somewhere
- has an indicator light to show charging

Cons:
- a low mAH rechargeable inside
- no cell phone adapter included
- low light output
- not sure if it's waterproof. Leaning towards not since I opened it and saw the battery on the base.

Conclusion:
Buy it if you need a low light for camping or a night light, but don't use it for reading or an in home emergency. It's more convenient to just buy 48-80 batteries in bulk when it's cheap than to crank it every time you need energy. What they should have done is allow end users to replace it with 2 or 3 AA rechargeable batteries, that way the hand crank will recharge it and it's more output than the tiny one.

Used the item (I have two) during a couple of black-outs... way better than worring about candles and great for camping. Only downside is not enough light to read comfortably.

I bought two of these for the kids around easter time for their baskets. They are small but are an awsome alternative to a flashlight. We camp a lot at the fields where we are lure coursing and a lot of times don't have any electric hookups. The kids constantly were misplacing their flash lights or the batteries were needing replaced. This little lantern has a rechargable battery in it and can be charged either by winding it up or with the sunlight. It has held up to the abuse that kids frequently put things through also.

I didn't realize when I read the information about this unit that I had to buy two additional kits to make it 1) charge a cell phone and 2) charge from a wall outlet or car charger. That was not clear to me from the information. I am very disappointed.
