The overwhelming enthusiasm for this torch made chosing and buying one very easy. However on the first occasion that we really needed to use it (as opposed to play with it as a novelty) was at night on a remarkably dark campsite. The alarm would not switch off! Winding it to try and light the way simultaneously resulted in waking the dead. So we now have a red thing that works as an alarm while being wound, which we do not want, and doesn't work as a torch, which is what we need. Post sales support doesn't work either.
Added later. I dismantled it and removed the loud speaker, also found that the two wires on the alarm switch were touching each other, so the switch was effectively permanently 'on', now sorted. Needs a tiny cross-head screw-driver to dismantle!
