Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars

Price Paid: $7

Summary

What's small, yellow, keyoot and gives off light for hours? My Solarrific Keychain 2 LED light. Charges by solar or a small, nearly silent hand crank. It is really lightweight and is great for lighting up the tent or to keep you from stumbling around the camp site. Nice little emergency light for the car or home too.

Pros

  • Small and lightweight at about an ounce
  • Never ran out on me
  • Charged quickly in the sun
  • Quiet hand crank if needed
  • A minute of cranking will give 20 minutes of light
  • Keyoot

Cons

  • A little bulky

I happened across this while searching for a head lamp on Amazon. At 7 bucks Amazon Prime, I thought it was a great deal and in my hands twp days later, what? what?

This is a small 2 LED light with an amorphous little solar panel and a small, quiet hand crank just in case.  The LED are really bright and have about a 10' throw. Perfect for what it is.  A cute, small, rechargeable LED light.  While amorphous solar panels are really inefficient, this works perfectly for the flashlight.  

Comes with a standard key ring that I replaced with a small, light, cheap carabiner clip.

Just a simple flick of the switch and the two super bright LED fire up and all your boot and map reading needs will be met in a few moments.  I also found it helpful searching for stuff in my bear canister.  You know, that bulky, heavy black thing where Starbuck VIA go to die in the bottom.

I am not sure how waterproof it is but I did get it wet and it didn't stop working.  I think it is rugged and resistant but not waterproof.  

I have used this about a couple dozen time since getting it a few weeks ago.  It worked fine on my backpacking trips with dry, rain and stinking cold nights.  I left it out about an hour in the sun which seemed to be fine to keep it charged. I have also played with it around the house a bunch of times.  It has yet to run out of power but I find myself compelled to spin the little hand crank.
