d.light S1 is an all-purpose, solar LED light. This light is cost effective and provides a high level of brightness while maintaining a high-quality and durable design. The d.light S1 will provide users with up to 4 hours of light (after a full day of charge) The light can be moved easily to provide concentrated lighting for studying and/or working. The solar panel can be easily oriented towards the sun during the day and then easily oriented to shed light at night.

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).
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.
I have left them on all night, maybe nine hours. They're pretty dim by then, but the first six hours are fine for reading.
One day charge gives hours of light for an evening.
I've dropped these several times with no apparent damage.
