Yes, this is worth buying because...
Reviewed in the United States on August 11, 2020
If you are trying to make a fast decision, this little rechargeable light is it. It’s the size of a baseball. The highest level is a strong light. It has a solid red feature and a flashing feature. It’s a good value. End of short review. Keep reading for more information.
Helpful tips for other uses beyond the obvious camping: shine the light on a jug of water or even a glass of water and the light will light up a larger space. An event planner could use colored water in a vase of water and create a magical table setting, or picnic table or during a burn ban - the red light creates the illusion of a campfire. Oh well... that’s not what you came to read so let’s get started.
I specifically was seeking all the features in this light. I wanted a solid red light feature because red light does not blind my eyes at night. With a red light, I can still see the stars at night.
One of my sons hates reading long reviews. He said”no one reads long reviews” - which is why he constantly returns items. My other son reads the reviews. If the reviews are honest, he’s thrilled with his purchases. I want you to be thrilled with your purchase. I want you to be happy with your decision. This review was a joy to write because the device was exactly what I needed and performed brilliantly. Another person may not need all the features that I need- yet. I’ll be buying more of this particular rechargeable lamps. If you are willing to read more - you’ll learn why and if not - stop here.
Good for camping, office, home office, car, RV, van life, Skoolie, cruise, travel, bugout bag, boats, emergency lights, off-grid cabin, backyard bbq, walking, hiking, baby’s nursery, walking to bathroom at night, tent light, campfire light, RV and more. Yes, I plan to send this device to friends and family. We lost electrical power this summer on one of the hottest days of the summer meaning the nights were hot too. I am upgrading my emergency tech. Thankfully I go camping and my devices came to the rescue while neighbors’ kids were franticly separated from their video games. Disposable batteries had been used. I decided to upgrade to rechargeable and this time be sure to keep the power batteries charged at all times. I need all items to be useful for more than one task. I purchased this small lightweight rechargeable light and remain satisfied with my decision. Here’s why:
Get free charging using solar or big battery generator. I use Rockport and Suaoki chargers also sold on Amazon to recharge the device.
- works as described
- rechargeable with a lightweight easily shared cable
- bright light can be reduced in intensity
- solid red light for dark nights doesn’t blind my eyes
- flashing red light option
I don’t like:
The SOS signal isn’t US military specification according to someone who is a veteran. He said it’s “too fast.” I’m not an expert on SOS signals so I included a video for your review. Please comment below in my review section to let all of us know your opinion. That’s the only feature not to like. I would still use the red flashing light feature at the side of the road as a safety flasher.
The story: Once there was debris on a rural highway. As night fell, my teen was driving and drove over the debris ruining the car. People were driving far beyond the speed limit and other accidents were caused. If I had this device in my bug out bag, hopefully I would have been able to prevent other accidents. Years have passed. He’s a great father and husband. I plan to order another one and ship it to his address and ask him to keep it in his fancy Audi just in case another teen makes his mistake and he finds himself needing an emergency light and flasher. Personally, everyone should have one of these devices in their car. I purchased this device for camping. I’ve ordered other rechargeable lights. This is the only light that I recommend to ride around in a car. Charge it every few months and it will always be ready to work.
- About the handle: it looks weak. Because a similar design on another device broke at the base, I plan to create a stronger handle.
The story: The clip is a nice design idea but the base of the clip is where another device broke the first time I used that other device on a camping trip. Now you understand my concern. When camping - you don’t want stuff to break and certainly don’t want stuff to break the first time you put the device into action. Yes, I know how to make things work and create workarounds. So in advance, I plan to create a new handle for the device. My mother now deceased used to say: “A word to the wise is sufficient.”
The request: If you found this review helpful, or anyone else’s review helpful, please select the helpful button.
The why: This easy action on your part is incredibly important to other consumers to let them know the review is worth reading and helps sellers and manufacturers create better products.
Thank you for your time.
Don’t believe the hype. Time is the only non renewable precious resource that we are born. Through human history, people will enslave people to steal their time. People will trade time for money. Time is your precious resource. This device will help you use your time wisely.
I thank you for sharing your time reading and commenting on this review.
