Easy to use
I have 2 of these - one for each vehicle. They have come in handy and are very easy to use. Will soon not be able to use them because am switching away from my very basic style cell phone to more modern / sophisticated cell phone. Will be sorry to leave this convenient crank charger behind.

This flashlight is so much nicer than I had anticipated. I own several crank/wind up flashlights, lanterns, radios, and this is one of the nicest & easiest to use out of the bunch. I like that it's durable, has the charger, and also has 2 brightness settings. The winder is nicely constructed & very comfortable and easy to use. I'm really happy with this purchase.

I am extremely pleased with this.. I have heard bad reviews about other flashlight and how the handle broke off too easily so i was sure to be careful opening the package.. later to find out that there was no need.. very durable strong handle.. I donﾒt like the fact that it doesnﾒt charge by usb, but I'm sure i will be able to find a cheap adapter for it. :)

Easy to crank and plenty of power to charge my LG Accolade cell phone. Compact size. I have one in my home and one in my vehicle in case of evacuation, as we did with Hurricane Rita. Have purchased more for family members. I like it.

Great product. I just bought several more for my emergency kits, cars and my home. I tested the cell phone charging on my Nokia 5800 Expressmusic pda phone from a dead battery state. Then I made a call and turned off the display. The call lasted over 7 minutes. Plenty of time to make an emergency call.

Now this one I really like
I bought the flashlight that you shake previously and it hardly throws any light at all. This one is MUCH better. And I hooked my cell phone car charger up to it and lo and behold my cell phone was charging as I cranked. This a handy gadget to have. It's going in my bug out kit. Would be handy to have in the car too, in a pinch.

Worth the money
Definitely worth the price. This LED flashlight has 3 different light modes 1LED, 3 LED and off. Also after charging up the batteries by cranking you can plug in the DC adapter and plug up your car charger for your cell phone. While it is not enough to charge up the entire phone, it is enough to make an emergency phone call or to charge it up a little bit. Thumbs up.
