3-LED Dynamo-Powered Crank Flashlight
This is another great energy-efficient gadget to have around. It will NEVER need batteries. Great for camping (ever had your flashlight batteries die in the middle of the night?), hiking, and for car and power emergencies. All you have to do is wind it for about a minute, and you get an hour and a half of light. It's that easy! It's also lightweight and fits into a large pocket, so it won't bulk you down. Super bright and multiple brightness settings, too.
Lately my husband and I are very into gadgets that do not require electricity or batteries to operate, so we've been checking out solar-powered and crank-powered items. I review another crank-powered lantern with lots of cool feat... Lately my husband and I are very into gadgets that do not require electricity or batteries to operate, so we've been checking out solar-powered and crank-powered items. I review another crank-powered lantern with lots of cool features in my Green Living list, but it is quite a bit more expensive. This lantern is simple, functional, and SUPER-BRIGHT, much brighter than you would expect from a wind-up. If all you need is light, and not all those other fancy features of the higher-end crank lanterns, than this is the one for you! It's great for emergencies (like power-outages, never have to worry about dead batteries again!), camping, to keep in the car for roadside emergencies, and travel. We love it! This lantern has the following features: Five super-bright LED lamps Dynamo power is ideal for emergencies, camping, picnics Sturdy ABS housing, shatter-resistant thermoplastic lens Protective aluminum roll cage Overall dimensions: 10-3/4" high x 7" diameter; Weight: 1.75 lbs.
