Customer Review by: Mark in PA on October 10th, 2017

I bought 2 of these Goal Zero Torch 250 as emergency lights. I have one upstairs in our bedroom window and one downstairs in our family room bay window where both can trickle charge using the solar panel. My old emergency lights were plugged into wall outlets and eventually the batteries died and wouldn't hold a charge. Hopefully the Li-NMC batteries in this last for several years. While the solar may take a couple days to fully recharge, it should work to keep it charged for when I need it. The crank isn't going to be much use except in a true emergency since it requires 1 minute of cranking for 2 minutes of light. You can charge via the built in USB cable but even that takes 7 hours to fully charge. There is no free lunch. You need a source of power to recharge it. But when fully charged it should provide light from 7 hours (spot light on high) to 24 hours (Flood light on low). Goal Zero says it should hold a charge for 3 to 6 months without any charging. The floodlight is very bright and dispersed. The 180 Lumen spotlight isn't focusable and has a very bright circle in the middle with with a much duller circle around it. All three lights (spot, flood and a red beam) can be turned on and off independently. There is a built-in hook (actually two) for hanging the light. It isn't lite weight but for its size it is comfortable to hold. I need to see how it works when I need it. It also has a USB port so in addition to various lighting features you can use the battery to charge a cell phone (it is limited to 5V, up to 1A). That would of course decrease the available time for lighting. I need to comment on Small Dog service. I ordered these just as hurricane Irma barrelled down on the Caribbean and Florida. They notified me that one of the lights was in the Key West store and that there would possibly be a long wait. Luckily the store suffered little damage and I received the second light a few days after Irma moved out of the Keys. I've always had good service from Small Dog.

Bought 2 of the Torch 250's when they were on sale at Christmas time. One for my son & of course one for me! Main reason was for the emergency situation aspect, in a worst case scenario I could crank it to charge my phone! Well we have taken on a house renovation project & the flashlight features have made these a favorite for both of us. The only feature that I dislike is the USB connector cord is a bit on the short side & it fit rather tightly into its storage recess - very minor really. Overall - love it!!
