=Why did I buy=
I love the Pannier Market in Tavistock, South Devon, and when we are on holiday in the area this is one place we always visit, it is like an Aladdin's cave.
On a visit a couple of years ago we saw this Hand Pump Dynamo Torches, we only paid 50p so we brought 3 to start off with, one of each of the cars, and the third for when we took the dog for a walk in the evening.
No batteries required, in this day and age that is not a saying we get to hear much. On one side of the torch you have 2 small slide like controls, these on mine are a white colour, the 1st (nearest the bulb) is the on / off switch which you just slide, the second is towards the bottom of the torch is a lock switch for the hand release function which charges the torch.
You just squeeze this with your hand as it fits in the palm of your hand perfectly and you just squeeze, it doubles up as good exercise for the hand. Even just 30 seconds of squeezing would get you at least 30 minutes of light.
There is two bulbs that make up the light in this, and it is perfectly serviceable in the dark, we use ours when we walk the dog on the Moors at night.
We were really impressed with the torches, that we went back and got about 10 more. We have them in the bedrooms, we all have metal headboards, so just pop one of these on the end and it's not in anyone's way.
When my daughter has a sleepover she and her friend use my double bed, and I have my daughters room, in my room I have one bedside cabinet, so when her friend stays she thinks the torch is brilliant as she can just grab the torch and use it to find the way to the toilet without having to wake my daughter to turn the main light on/
There's upstairs on the landing, downstairs by the front door, one in the under stairs cupboard, for reading meters, and also handy is the power goes.
There in the car, incise we need to read a map, we breakdown and in the boot.
Not that we women actually carry everything but the kitchen sink, but I have one in my handbag, finding keys in the dark, again they literally have 1001 uses.
These are not the best of quality, but for the job in hand they are worth more than the money paid, I have seen them on sale in eBay for prices up to £2.00
=Would I recommend=
I would highly recommend these torches, they come with a little strap that you can easily slip over your wrist.
Don't leave home without one.
Summary: A handy little gadget don't leave home without one
