Amazing gizmo! Living in an area prone to power outages having a wind-up lamp is perfect. Easy to use, lightweight and small, the winding handle folds out and you get about 20m of light after about a couple of minutes winding (although I ahven't had need to test the duration since I bought it). Winding basically means turning the handle which is easy to grip for an average person, and it's no problem just sitting there3 watching the telly turning the handle every so often to keep it charged up!
Has 6 blue-white LEDs which are very bright, certainly better than candles or battery lights which can run flat just when you need them.
