Product Description

Dear Amazon Customer, I lived in Africa and other parts of the developing world for more than 20 years, first as a Marine and than as an American diplomat - I made these lights to work in the very toughest environments to serve as portable light-bulbs. I came into this field not as a flashlight manufacturer, but as someone who has seen the impact of darkness in the developing world. This light exceeds military specifications and are being carried by US Marines, Navy Seals and Rangers in Afghanistan. We had the assistance of NASA and DOE in developing our products. The light is completely waterproof and lights up a small room, tent or hut - it is an area light, not a narrow beam light. President Clinton has provided more than 30,000 of these to Haiti. This is the very best light on the market at this price - and I can demonstrate this due to our selection of the very best components. SunNight Solar has patents in both China and the US. Thanks for looking at my light. We also sell the SN-2 solar powered BoGo light on Amazon as well. Best regards, Mark Bent. President and CEO, SunNight Solar

Again- I have worked with the company so I realize this review is biased.

In my book, it just doesn't get better than SunNight Solar and its products!

Beam is very wide, so it works more like an area light than a flash light.

I purchased this light about three months ago, set it in the sun light for about 8 hours, and have not had to charge it since. My wife and I use it around the house all the time, I have taken it backpacking and it works great. It is very durable, water resistant had it in the rain backpacking no problems, easy to use and again last a long time with out having to charge.

I waited a few weeks to review this flashlight, so I could give a more useful opinion.
It's very bright. Not spotlight bright, it has a broader focus, tho you can certainly shine it on the ground when walking in the dark, just not several yards away. If you read the inventor's blurb, it was designed as a portable solar light bulb for third world countries, not a flashlight per se.
Mine is yellow, not orange, as they show in the picture. There's a glow-in-the-dark band around the lens cover. It is infinitely superior to the little AA battery flashlights, and has already saved me enuf $ in not buying batteries to pay for itself. The switch requires a hard click.

PS I am adding this 8 months after purchase. It is still completely reliable, holds a charge for such a long time that I've never seen it run down, I've left it in the rain, dropped it, lost it for a month and it was still bright. another brand left in the rain quit working.)

The Mini BoGo Light is solar charged and uses a rechargeable NiMH battery. I learned that if you bought direct from SunNight Solar and paid some more for one light, the company will send another light to a charitable organization overseas. That's where the BoGo gets its name: Buy One, Give One. Those are noble intentions, and this a serious product. The BoGo was designed to function "off the grid".

I just got it today and had to crack it open. SunNight Solar was smart enough to use a 1.2 volt, 1,200 mAh NiMH rechargeable battery, just like you can buy in any store. Better yet, they didn't solder it into place. So the company expects the light to outlive the battery, which will last for hundreds of recharges. The panel used to house the battery has a silicone seal as well as a bit of something gooey. Screwing the case back in made this hissing noise, proof of a good airtight seal.

The LED is sealed with the reflector, which is very shallow and doesn't give much throw. It's still bright enough to fill a wall, and it's passable off the ceiling. The Mini-BoGo is extremely light and has a built-in carabiner as well as a hole at the rear for running a lanyard. They put so much thought into this design. There are holes in the housing to reduce weight, and even the "bottom" half of the flashlight has shallow, molded finger grooves. SunNight says it's waterproof, and it's so light I bet it will float. My only concern is the sliding switch which is the only potential weakness.

They claim it will run six hours on a single charge. I can't wait to test it out. I only review things I like, so if you've made it this far, you may as well buy one and try it out yourself.

*Full disclosure: I have worked with this company on a contract basis in the past.*

The BoGo Light is really one of the greatest products I own. For me, it's up there with my iPhone, Vizio TV, Toyota 4Runner, Gmail account, etc. I appreciate great design, efficiency, value, and durability and this product really holds up to its reputation. I own 3 or 4 and some extended family members have one or two for camping. They really will blow your mind the first time you turn one on in a room. You'll realize that there are flashlights, and then there is the BoGo Light. There's just no comparison. It's also just a great product to hold in your hand. It's really comfortable and molds to your natural grip. It's also staggeringly lightweight, you won't even notice it hanging on your shorts or backpack. I keep two out on my back patio and one in my truck at all times.

Again- I have worked with the company so I realize this review is biased. But- I also only work with clients who make great products. I got tired of working with things that were hard to sell based on poor quality, etc. So, take it or leave it- but my opinion is this is an A+ product made by someone who is incredibly passionate about the mission building a great light, and helping those who need it around the world.

Overall, a very good light. Bright enough to be useful, reasonably durable body with one exception, the spring clip is very weak and opens on its own by the sheer force of gravity. To be honest, I'm not sure why they'd go through the trouble and expense of adding this feature, only to do it so poorly. I love that you can open it up to swap batteries if the original one gets worn out. It's AA (rechargeable, obviously), so they're easy to find.

Outside of that, I'd give it 5 stars, but there are still ways to improve it, perhaps these are just personal preferences.

1, Improve that clip so I attach it to my backpack to charge it and not be afraid to lose it as I hike.
2. A more focused beam, or a way to adjust.
3. Add another battery and make it brighter. Also, since you are able to open it up, you could use it as a solar charger for AA batteries.
4. Add a USB port to be able to charge it off of a computer, but also to use the light itself as a charger for almost anything that charges via a USB port. IE phones, GPS, walkie talkies, etc.
5. Add some different modes, or at least a switch that would allow different levels of brightness.

I realize these changes would drive the price up a bit, but not by a lot and it would make an already great product exceptional.
