Um, I have a solar powered flashlight, had it for Years, it sits on my kitchen windowsill and has been useful in tons of power outages.

2003 Northeastern power blackout? No problem.

People are stupid.

Actually it`s a great idea. Just leave it out somewhere where you can get to it, and it will slowly charge. It`ll always be there for easy access in an emergency and you can guarantee that it will be charged.

Solar power can be stored, solar receptors not only trap and convert solar power, but store them, it`s tech that has been around since before most of you were born and when I was a teenager listening to the "new" Uriah Heep Album.

Yep, just hafta put it in a window sill during the day. Honestly, how hard is that to understand? Considering most of those construction zone signs, the blinking beacons and even some of those signs over the highways that communicate accidents, amber alerts and a slew of other things are all solar powered. Maybe most of the people on this site have solar powered brains and they`re awake at night...

I don`t see the problem... it STORES the energy in the day and uses it at night. There`s plenty of garden lanterns and the sort which have solar panels too.

Ok, I can understand slapping the guy who had the idea, but what about the guy who decided to actually market it? If it was the same guy who designed and marketed it, then that is so much fail at one time. But if the guy who marketed it is not the "inventor" then, what?

sender02, Ya know there is this device that was invented recently for storing power. It comes in many different sizes and i think that one of those might fit in there. I think that it is called a "Battery". But don`t take my word for it...

It seems every one had a strike across the back of the head here? Discluding many people who`s post I have read (Will not be listed.) that have answered the apparent `mystery` and dis-logic behind this product.
You don`t go day spotting with a torch, it has a thing called a copper coil which allows it to collect energy provided from the solar panel. Do I need to bother to continue? I`m going to go cry. Sure it`s an ironic product but there is total logic behind it!

Sarcastic Humor for IAB visitors.

The flashlight doesn`t store the energy.

The package is saying we can use the flashlight while powering generators or moving furniture into a storage. Cause it`s dark in them storage room. and small.

Man you guys are wrong.

I work for a storage company and I have one of these, and they work AWESOME!

I imagine there is a battery in there and the solar panel charges it. Come on people think it is quite obvious they didn`t make it not to work.

2sender02, you are acctually very very wrong, A capacitor would be very easy to fit into this casing, hell, have you seen those little r/c cars? they have a capacitor in them, and its 1/10 the size of the actual car, second, the damn packet says that it stores and generates electricity. third! and finally, if you have power stored, why would the solar panel need to retain the ability to see sun? I rest my case.

the flashlight is stupid because it is too small to STORE energy, like all those people below think. it needs energy while it works, just like a solar calculator. using a flashlight while there is sun is stupid.

whoever posted this is an idiot...

I know its been beaten despite me not reading the comments yet, but the solar cell is used for charging a stored battery which will take over after dark.

the poster apparently doesn`t understand solar panels on a house either. do you think people just live in the dark when the sun goes down or its TOO cloudy for much solar radiation?

These acually works pretty cool, it charges during the day and you can use it with 4 hours battery light before it dulls, its still cool tho!

Well, it ain`t really a fail. When you think about it. It says "storage", e.g. you lay it in the sun for a while, and boom, you have flashlightpower for a few hours.

I`m sure it stores enough energy to use later on...but regardless it`s stupid because nobody keeps a flashlight out in the open.

Although its not as bad as it sounds, seeing as it obviously has a method of storing the energy.
A more practical alternative was invented way before this was invented.

I think the flaw is, When you usually need to use a flashlight it is dark and you cant charge it if your in the dark or a dark area. especially if it is in your pocket....

it says storage right on the package. so obviously it will still work when you need it to.

the flaw is; it needs the sun to work, so the only time it works is when you don`t need it.

For making a torch that stores power through the day to be used at night? Or am I missing something? Maybe that it`s on a keyring so it`ll be in your pocket? :/

no problem, the energy is "stored" in the flashlights battery pack to be used at a later time.
