From the pictures online, I couldn't tell exactly how big this flashlight was. So when it arrived, I was really surprised! This is a substantial tool! Not your little plastic nightstand flashlight. This has some real heft to it and a decent solar panel for a good charge. It arrived fully charged and I tested out the light. Very bright! Puts some of my other flashlights to shame. Plus I love all the other useful features, especially the ability to charge my phone from it if I ever needed to. This is now my number 1 favorite survival flashlight!
