It works OK, but . . .My only complaint is the time it takes to charge using solar alone. Using the USB charger, it was fully charged overnight and easily charged my goal zero lantern. However, I have been attempting to charge the unit via solar only and I can never get it above one blue light (after about 20 hours of sunlight exposure and no use). I will continue to leave it in the sun for several days, but if it does not improve, I will contact the company.
I will probably leave it at my cabin, in a window to maintain charge while I am not there, so it is ready if/when the power is out, and take it camping during the summer for extra light in my camper.

I bought this for the solar option as I seem to always be out on the road when my phone decides to die so I thought this would be perfect!!! Way wrong. I have left it on my dashboard and on the window sill for three straight days and have ONE blue light of power captured. NOT WORTH IT! I guess you need to harness the sun's energy straight to your device but what makes this worse is I bought three of these.
Do research before buying this I only asked questions with the salesperson but forgot for a moment they must work on commission and they pulled one over on me with the 'what it could do' well that would be great if it only did!

So Very VersatileThis product is equally useful at home and in the field. Camping: great as an area light in a tent or to light up your food prep area; excellent as a flashlight for getting around in the dark; red light is helpful when stargazing to not destroy your night vision; solar let's you leave it out during the day and have it ready to go when you need it at night with USB in just in case; I haven't used the crank much but it's nice to know it's there if you need it; USB out is obviously handy. At home: The flood light is awesome for working under the hood; the spotlight has a nice color that let's you see what you can't with other white LED lights; the red is great for getting around the house at night without disturbing anyone.

Great Backpacking Asset!I purchased my Torch 250 before my 2 weeks camping/backpacking vacation. It worked great to keep my cell charged and as an all around light. When we had heavy rain I could stay in the dry tent with no hassle of recharging my phone at a campsite receptacle. While on Isle Royale for 5 days it served as my main flashlight and kept my iphone camera charged for plenty of pictures. I usually use a headlamp while backpacking but found on this trip the Torch 250 lighting versatility to be a plus. While it is a bit hefty in weight compared to a headlamp, I certainly did not mind the bit of extra weight. We had substantial rain while on the trip and the moisture did not cause any problems with the performance of the Torch 250. This is a great product!

Concept was great...These were purchased for backpacking trip to Ecuador. Excellent light(s). Strong, Powerful.... lasts a long time.... Especially for the extremely long night hikes looking for reptiles, insects and amphibians. There are a lot of useless features on this light that could go. It is FAR too bulky.
As a woman with small hands I have to tell you it is NOT easy holding this monster for hours on end. That was a *major* design flaw. Large hands or especially tiny hands like mine there really is no curvature or designed way to hold this flashlight, especially with its odd shape.
I found myself and others in my hiking group were constantly changing hands to give their primary hand a rest.

BEST THING SINCE BUTTERED TOAST!I have been buying these for several years now. We live in the country and keep them on the dash of our truck to keep charged. We always have a flashlight. The variety of light is also great. Use it as a lamp while working or a spotlight. It also has an emergency light which is nice. Great gift for those son-in-laws, nephews and other hard to buy for guys. I son-in-law worked nights driving a truck and went through 2 of them. They could be a little more rugged and sturdy, but they are a great product and I highly recommend them to anyone who wants a good flashlight that also charges your phone. Now if they can just get the Rock Out Solar Speakers to charge my phone! :)

AWESOME!!!!!the 3 different charging options represent 3 different situational states: (1) normal life, (2) loss of power grid, and (3) cowering in a dark cave ... I'm joking but there's actually some truth to this ... you can instantly switch from USB charging to solar charging to crank charging depending on the current state of civilization ... flood light is bright ... spot light is bright ... emergency lights are a great add-on ... and love that it's also a power-bank for other gadgets ... rock solid high quality construction ... and the design is very striking ... I absolutely 200% recommend this ... proven by the fact that I own 2 of them!!!
