I love gadgets. Sometimes the neatest things in life, come in small packages. The "Sima" brand, crank flashlight, 2-pack, falls into this, "nifty gadget" catagory.
I got the two pack, so the boys could fight over one of them. They are like dogs, fighting over a bone, with this flashlight.
This crank flashlight 2 pack, comes with a crank charger, super bright LEDS and USB charge cable to really charge the flashlights up.
One minute of cranking, gives you about half and hour of light. The bonus to this is, you can use the crank charger to crank charge other things, like my iPod! How cool is that! That crank charger is worth it's weight in gold.
The flashlights are very bright too. I don't ever have to be looking around the house for batteries for a flashlight ever again. The next time the lights go out, I am prepared.
In reality, the remotes in our house like to play hide and seek. I can never find the right remote control, when I need it. I use this flashlight to shine on the home theater interface, when I want to manually make adjustments at night.
The Sima Crank Flashlight is a nice deal. If there is someone you know, that never has a working flashlight when they need it, this is a perfect gift.
