Remarkably Good for the Price

I bought this flashlight to use while walking the dog on winter nights. It looked to be small and light, and I liked the fact that I could just wind it up and go. Once it arrived, I realised that it's not actually that small (a little smaller than a packet of cigarettes) but it's not bulky, and it is very light.
Performance is excellent. I wound it for 30-seconds and left it on to see how long it lasted. After an hour, I was impressed. After two hours, I was seriously impressed, although the light produced was not particularly bright. After four hours I was amazed when the LEDs were still illuminated. The light produced was not massively bright, but it was enough to read a map with. If it was used (for example) as a marker ... it would still be visible from a long way off even after such a long time. After five hours, with the LEDs still glowing away (albeit quite dim), I finally turned it off.
Overall, a very good buy.
