I bought this lamp as I already had purchased a silver one previously, which I was very pleased with. Unfortunately, this pink one didn't perform as well, whether or not this was just a faulty lamp, I don't know, but after charging it up in the car on a long journey, it still gave out hardly any light at all. It was on a reduced price, so maybe that had something to do with it. So I had to return it. I still want another wind up lamp, so I shall probably get another silver one, at full price.
