Sturdy, durable, and feels very rugged.

The light itself is very bright as well, both the flashlight and the floodlight.

This flashlight has four methods of recharging: solar, crank, car charger [DC] and home wall charger [AC]. The flashlight is a little more than a foot long and made of a lightweight composite material that is easy to grip and appears secure enough to be water resistant. There are two lights on the bottom that indicate that the device is receiving a charge either from cranking, or from the sun. There is no indicator for AC\DC charges--this was a complaint on the GoalZero website, but I don't see this as a design problem since you don't normally require confirmation that it's charging in your car or home. The solar indicator is helpful when you're not sure you're getting enough sun, or if you're not sure your cranking it the right way [whichever direction you crank it, it will charge, but without the light you wouldn't know that]. When you plug it into the wall or your car, rest assured that it is actually charging like every other appliance.

As I mentioned, the flashlight is sturdy and lightweight, and appears to be ideal for backpacking. I will however note the design of the crank, as it always protrudes from the flashlight. It would be nice to fold it inside or even detach it. I'm a little worried it might break off if I shove it in a pack and I'm not careful. The solar panel snaps into the side securely. I don't know why the designers didn't tuck away the crank also--it's as though the crank feature was an afterthought, which seems odd since this is one of the most appealing features of this flashlight. Who needs a flashlight if you can charge it in the sun?

As my title suggests, I think this is a brilliant device, and like other GoalZero products I've purchases on AMZ, well crafted.

I will be sure to update in the coming months. Reply to the review if you have specific questions I can answer.

Great concept but okay execution. Has its own solar charger and a hand crank if no sun is around professing that 1 minute of cranking equals 15 minutes of light. I like this but my only complaint is that it is really quite large and bulky although fairly well constructed with the rubberized finish being a nice addition. If they could make this smaller and more portable, I would have given it 4.5 stars for sure. Output is not digitally controlled for constant brightness which means that its useable light output declines over time which would have been another half star off if I could rank this by half stars. Starting on a full charge, I noted a decent 5 - 6 hours with the lamp mode before the light started to be notably dimmer and less useful. Overall, would still recommend for a good emergency preparedness light for the family.

Excellent flashlight for emergencies that will run efficiently by solar, crank, or AC/DC to charge built in battery. Crank stores out of site so no chance of it getting in the way. LED lights are bright and last many days. Has LED indicator to show when charging. Solar panel sensitive so charges under low light conditions. Has LED's at end that are very bright for distance lighting. Side panel has multiple LED's for room lighting which uses less battery. Sturdy, durable, and feels very rugged. Bought one for my son after this one as I feel all members of each household should have one of these efficient and heavy duty flashlight.

I bought two of these to test out during Irene. I'm a volunteer EMT and we lost power for hours during the store. These lights were amazing in how they performed. Everyone that used them liked them, some of them said they wished it was a little smaller so they could seal it into of their BDU or turnout coat pockets. They are very bright, last a very long time. My only problem was the hand crank. I wish the knob was a little larger for those of use with big hands so we could better grab and turn it. I am an active outdoorsman and camper, I know in a pinch I don't want to keep having my hand slip off the crank handle.

we were given 2 of these flashlights for my husband's birthday. Little did we know that just a few days later the St Louis area would be hit with a tornado. We had them charged up ready to go when the power was out. with my husband in a wheel chair and myself disabled they were a lifesaver. The light that they projected really helped a lot. It enabled us to move around the house with ease. Thank GOD our home was not damage like hundreds of others. But we were able to ride out the storm thanks to the gift of my loving sister. We loved them so well that we even bought a third one for our car.

After more than a year and a half of regular use, the wiring inside started to short. I say this because it either no longer charges the battery when the wires short. Plugging it into the wall with it on gives no light. The only way for this to give light was by cranking the charging handle by hand. This means that the capacitors inside work and hold a few seconds worth of power. Then when I stop cranking the handle, a few seconds later the lights go out due to the capacitor discharging. Since this issue, my Dad took it apart and saw that it was a wiring short and not the batteries being dead. Putting it back together (without fixing anything) allows my light to work again. So this means the wiring gets loose over time. We could not see which wire was loose. Here is an updated list of good and bad aspects:

The Good:
1. Durable (other than the hook) IF you make sure to fold up the crank handle after using it. Don.t leave that handle unfolded, it could get broke easily.
2. Crank handle and wall socket charging methods work very well. It would take a few minutes of cranking the handle to get perhaps 10 minutes of good to decent light. Wall charging is very fast.
3. Fully charged gives you good bright light for at least 30 minutes to an hour but maybe longer (I use it almost every night but haven.t used it much for reading so Its not easy to tell how long it really lasts from full charge).
4. A red light on the unit lets you know when it is being charge (even by cranking or solar) and the red LED gets brighter when it is charging better (faster cranking, better sunlight). the red LED does not come on during wall charging but the wall plug in unit has a light that comes on when its charging.
