  • Solar Powered Flashlights

    These seemed very interesting for an LED, dimmable, solar powered flashlight with 3 NiMh batteries. What do ya'll think? $22 a piece is reasonable if you buy a case. $39 per is pricey though.

      I like that it has Litium batteries as they are supposed to last longer and recharge faster. The size is a concern to me but in a survival situation that could actually be a plus.

      Nice find, I want one!

        Shake LED handlights are probably easier to use and they never need a battery to be replaced.

          yeah but from what I have seen their run time stinks, as well as does their output

            We got a case of solar powered flashlights in for Christmas gifts this year only $10 a piece.. I bought 1 then decided to pick up the rest of the case after testing it out. I think i saw a thread by Rusty that had a picture of them but i can't find it now.

              Iprefer the crank lights....they have an LED array, they don't need batteries...ever....and I once heard a joke about solar powered flashlights and a pollack....what do you do if it's dark, and your batteries are dead?

                          Do they still manufacture anything here anymore?
