This crank and wind up flashlight comes in handy - but can take about a minute to crank for a half an hour. This is a blessing when in a place without batteries but I am still confused about how it works. Like many other things, it works great - and if it's not broken I guess it's better not to fix it!
I like how it comes in many colors and this has become a favorite stocking stuffer, secret santa gift and many other things! The price is great, twenty bucks! I have had mine forever and it is still cranking!
It's pretty bright too - don't be surprised if it works for a little longer than an hour. I have had othe rmodels that have had needed more cranking, and since this one needds the least amount of time, and produces the most amount of light it is a top product in my books!
