Enjoy the freedom of mobile light everywhere you go, without worrying about batteries. The Barracuda torch combines two renewable energy sources - a built-in solar panel and a dynamo handle to wind the flashlight up. With its 3 ultra bright LEDs offering 3 functions - saving, power and flashing - the quality and feel of this torch are superb.

There are many cheaper solar torches out there in the market, but you won't be disappointed with the Barracuda. Cheaper solar torches may offer 3 LEDs, but they are often dim and the charge doesn't last very long - but not with this little torch. Feel confident when you go camping or hiking, or in emergencies, knowing that with the Barracuda you can have bright light on power mode for up to four hours on a single charge.


- 'Saving' mode uses 1 LED, 'Power' mode 3 LEDs, 'Flashing' mode 3 LEDs
- Maximum brightness 3 LED = 8 LM
- LED lifetime = 50,000 hours
- Shine time after 1 minute winding: 3 LED = 60 minutes, 1 LED = 80 minutes, Flashing = 110 minutes
- Shine time after 1 hour direct sunlight: 3 LED = 90 minutes, 1 LED = 120 minutes, Flashing = 140 minutes
- Time to fully charge by sunlight = 8 hours
- Shine time 3 LED fully charged = 4 hours
- Water resistant to 1 metre (for short accidental dunkings)

New Internationalist weighs the world on the scales of justice. By tapping into a vast global network of activists, the compassionately written and tightly edited magazine breathes life into the struggles, projects, and people who are working to build a better planet.

UTNE Reader, in nominating the New Internationalist magazine for the 2010 Independent Press Awards.

For many years I have read the New Internationalist magazine with great respect. Many an article I have written, and film I have made, have had their roots in something I read in the NI.
