  • Solar charge


  • Finding it W E A K after 3 or 4 years. I tho't sun would 'forever charge' I guess???

I too have this small solar flashlight and have been delighted with it. My batteries also need to be replaced I guess as it is not its 'usual self of light'. Do I just replace these 2/CR2032 Lithium Cell 3 V batteries?

Hi Dee, if replacing the batteries doesn't fix things, I'd try contacting LL Bean directly. They have excellent customer service and should be able to help you out: or

I received this item in an "emergency bottle.' I've used this light for the last four years and am just now needing to replace the battery pack, if that's even possible. I hope it is, because the light has worked perfectly and I'd like to keep using it, the body is perfect, it works, why get rid of it because it needs new batteries?


  • Longevity
  • It works repeatedly
  • Keep it charged and it works


  • How do you replace the rechargeable batteries?

I received this light as part of an emergency bottle kit, typically used for backpacking. I had been putting together an emergency kit for my home, car, and camper and thought this would be a good addition to my personal "bugout bag".

I had had it in my kit for several months and was needed a light in my 5th wheel. I retrieved my light from the kit and charged it for 6 hrs and turned it on. Bam! Worked like a charm. It now has a special place in my 5th wheel window.

I use it every time I go to the camper. I even take it on vacation as an emergency light, remember Gilligan's Island, it started as a 3-hour tour. Sure would have been nice to have a solar powered flashlight.
