Yep, it's True.
I first bought 2 of these and the wife & I liked em so much I bought 10 more (plus 8 of the medium d.light lantern model).
And here's why:

I bought the adapter to give each light an initial 12 hour electrical hard charge because I wanted a good HARD charge plus I guess I don't trust the sun... Then, I ran the light 4 hours (as advertised) and it burnt strong from start to finish. I woulda ran it longer but I was sleepy. Then I stuck the thing in my window and let it sit till the next evening. And it charged well and burns bright when I need it.

Now - when I say "bright", I don't mean bright enough to do brain surgery by - BUT you could easily see well enough to deliver a baby or read about learning to DO brain surgery without any eye strain. So for me and my needs - this is plenty bright and it STAYS bright for hours.

I live in the backwoods and our grid is just plain lousy.
We went without power for 10 days a couple years back and I didn't have me enough light. But now, ladies and gentlemen - when the lights go out I will be the envy of all my unlit neighbors.
AND if the world comes to an end - I will have plenty of light to skin a squirrel and reload guns by. Because after all - when the gas runs out - your generator will stop running. But there's a very good chance the sun will come out tomorrow.

The light is very well made - high impact plastic - feels like it will last a long time.
The switch is solid and the little metal handle is nifty.
You can sit it or hang it in all kindsa different ways.
I hung it from a shelf and was able to work inside a closet.
Heck, you can even hang it from your shirt collar while you're changing banjo strings.
It's incredible!

The picture doesn't do this unit justice. It's quite sturdy and seems very well built. The light makes a nice bright circle of light about 10 inches in diameter when pointed straight down. The lamp swivels 360 degrees so you can aim it at a wall to make great hand shadows. Or point straight up at the ceiling for a dim area light.

Like the d.light S10 Solar LED Lantern, this is designed for developing rural areas without electricity. The difference being this is mainly intended as a reading light for students. Your purchase helps the d.light organization distribute their products where they can really make a difference. Their mission statement:

"Enable households without reliable electricity to attain the same quality of life as those with electricity. We will begin by replacing every kerosene lantern with clean, safe and bright light."

The unit disassembles with a phillips screw driver and the rechargable Ni-Mh battery can be easily replaced (if needed) with a standard 3.6v cordless phone battery "2/3AAA" (same battery as the S10). Also like the S10, it can be charged by the sun or an AC charger, just search for "Nokia AC-3U" on Amazon and get one for a few bucks. Check out the company site by googling dlight design (note the exact spelling).

I have all kinds of solar gadgets. I was happily surprised how bright this thing is! It's perfect for the bedside when doing algebra late at night. My primary reason for ordering (besides loving all things solar) is my regular lamps put too much heat in my small cramped room. This item is perfect! Easy to angle just where you want it too. I also noticed, when I first opened it and was looking at the packaging, that the red charging light came on while the panel was exposed under my bright desk lamp. This is a bonus because I can keep it at the desk while working and get a charge on rainy days. I plan to order more, for myself and friends!

I bought this light a few months ago, along with a comparable Eddie Bauer lantern and a no-brand lantern. Hurricane Sandy rolled through this week, and we had our first real test of the lanterns when the power went out (and stayed out). The Eddie Bauer lantern was not as bright and lasted only about an hour before going dim. The no-brand lantern lasted a bit longer but was very difficult to use -- it wasn't configured to put the light where needed. Our d.lights, on the other hand, performed flawlessly. We used both the area lantern (the d.light S10) and also this task light (d.light S1). The area lantern (the S10) kept large (15x30 foot) living spaces lit well enough to work (preparing dinner, etc.). And the task light (S1) was fantastic for reading, doing paperwork, etc. All of the d.light lanterns lasted from sundown to bed time at full brightness -- the S10 lanterns were on the whole time (about 6 hours), while the S1 task lights were used intermittently (probably 3-4 hours). Both the S10 and the S1 are designed for functionality -- the area lantern is very easy to hang, and the S1 task light puts light right where you need it. Last but not least, they recharged the next day with only partial sunlight and were ready to go for a second night.

Long and the short of it: D.light lanterns are awesome! Hands down, these are the best power outage lanterns available, and at a great price. I just placed an order for a few more. These are far more valuable than battery-eating flashlights when facing a sustained power outage.

05-Nov-2012: Important Note. If you're looking for a whole-room lantern, as opposed to a task, light, you'll probably want to get the d.light S10. The S1 (this product) is a task light, for reading, etc. Both are great products -- just designed for slightly different uses.
