I like that it can be charged by sun but didn't realize that the solar panel is only good for topping off the battery after you have charged it from plugging into outlet. Wall plug not included, we used the one from a cell phone charger. Instructions didn't tell you that you have to remove a plastic disc from inside the batter chamber or it won't charge. That should be in instructions. Now that it is charged, the light is nice and bright. I don't like that you must go through the progression of various lighting options before you can turn it off, this includes a flashing green light that is very annoying so I have to try to remember to cover it before I get to that click of the switch.
I have had every solar dud flashlight in the past, so I thought this might be a little better. Wrong, this thing is HOT, it functions flawlessly and is built very well. Bright it is, multifunction. Wish they did a video on their website. Put a piece of tape over the charge port to keep the rubber stopper in place and it works perfectly. Pull the tape off, remove the stopper and it charges perfectly.
I never came across a flashlight that was operated by solar energy and I found this one by chance. However, I am too happy with the quality.
