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.

Features:

- '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)

Product features
  • Max brightness 8 LM
  • LED lifetime 50,000 hrs

Commendations

New Internationalist is an ongoing education and a monthly reminder of our common humanity. A wonderful readable guide to the social and political forces that shape our world...With its hard-hitting coverage of world affairs, evocative first-person essays, sweeping exposes of such topics as land mines and the geopolitics of blue jeans, the New Internationalist offers a consistently unique and important perspective on global culture.

The editors of Utne Reader - when announcing the New Internationalist as the winner of the General Excellence Award for magazines with a circulation over 50,000 - global Independent Press Awards - 1998.

If you would like to know something about what's actually going on, rather than what people would like you to think was going on, then read the New Internationalist.
