IMO it would be better to spend one of your flashlights to the postman. He then could also work in the darkness ...

Can anyone confirm this ? (I.E. not just darell ...... )
That's my only worry about pocket carry, the protection of the solar cell. I was thinking about adding a layer of clear plastic, even though it would cut down on the recharge time a little.

Ummm, René, I am not "ridiculos" (sounds Spanish when it's spelt that way), I am "ridiculous".
Just thought I'd clear that up ......

I'm so sorry, Sir! Sometimes my fingers are faster than my brain ... especially when I have to write in English. If my fingers wouldn't write as fast English as they do it would last an eternity until my brain had translated my German thoughts

But sometimes they choose the German spelling instead the English one.

Jahn, I would really never dare to relocate you to Spain. There it must be much to try for you ....

Especially for you a very special 'received list' with the correct spelling:

A few weeks ago when I made my 'bathroom test' I asked this question to Emil Ackermann. He mentioned that the glass could brake but the photovoltaic part is flexible and would normally not take any damage. Of course the light would not longer be IP68. But I can't say how much the glass itself can sustain.

My Free Light survived a weekend of varied & numerous uses among our family members (including the dreaded "toddler test"). Always nice & bright, despite the fact that sunlight was rare this weekend (rain, rain go away...).

The lanyard has proven to be quite beneficial. It is just the right size for attaching the light to grab handles in our vehicles (just pass the light thru the lanyard loop).

LOCO is more like it.
They're here! Loved the chocolates!
The quality of the lights really is fantastic. I only wish for two things: Brighter and constant-on. Other than that, I'm sold on them. If these were as bright as my Arcs, I'd be tempted to carry one on me. But still, they'll probably dangle in the cars somwhere. I have one on my daughter's stroller right now. That'll get charged to the max every day at the park...

You would have to use the ASCII code for it. So forget it write my name without this 'accent d'ecu'. Btw, it is a french name so blame the French for these stupid letters ...

You know, darell...I don't know about keeping this thing in your car. I mean, it gets pretty hot on a sunny day. I just hate to see the long-term effects of this heat on the batteries, etc....

I'm going to attach mine to my work bag (so it sees sunlight).

BTW, Rene. I have received your first shipment...but haven't received the other packages....

I hope they didn't get lost!

Got mine today! Thanks René and Roger!

Ironically, it arrived on the same day as did my new solar panels for my RV. So it's definitely a solar day in the Duggg household

Hmmm, I wonder where my two went? Perhaps the chocolate melted and jammed the postal machines?
