Also, the description does say this, but note: Will not charge the iPhone. No matter how fast you crank.
The flashlight part is better. Three modes: 1 LED lit, 3 LEDs lit, and blinking. A little winding provides reasonable use of the flashlight - more than adequate for emergencies.
A note on LED lights: LEDs almost never burn out (way, way higher hour rating than incandescent lights). Probably less prine to break from dropping also. I don't understand why some high-end flashlights still use bulbs that can burn out or break. I've seen very nice flashlights with aircraft aluminum bodies, O-ring seals, and... an incandescent bulb, with a spare bulb in the handle. I probably wouldn't need that spare bulb if they just used an LED. And you'd have to have 10 spare bulbs (or more) to give the same life span as an LED.
In summary, I might recommend it as a flashlight that will never need batteries and uses LED "bulbs". Buying it to charge something in an emergency is a little more questionable. The output is limited enough that it will not charge all phones, and I expect emergency devices not to break so easily -- I don't want to have an emergency with my emergency tool.
I literally turned the crank for twenty minutes or so and did not see any change in battery power.
THE ONLY REASON I GAVE A FOUR STAR IS: There is NO adapter for IPOD TOUCH 5G to charge on this! too bad - it charges everything else it seems
