When I originally bought this torch, it was bought because I wanted something that could be used for camping.

A good idea but not thought through properly in it's design.

The charge handle is folded against the body of the torch and clips to the end and each minute of winding will provide approximately thirty minutes of light. There is a green LED pilot lamp which lights while charging is in progress – the recommended rate is to rotate the handle (in either direction) at a rate of ... Read the complete review
