Utter rubbish. It is the quickest charging crank torch available.

The Freeplay Sherpa Wind Up and Rechargeable Torch is always there when you need it (Except when the bulb goes)
It's very robust. I've dropped it several times without it causing any damage. Replacement bulbs are difficult to get hold off and so is the company. This appears to be a gripe from lots of people… Read Full Review

Im assuming you work for a competitor as 30 seconds winding will give you 30 mins light with the Sherpa.

Written on: 08/09/2005 by Elephas Maximus (2 reviews written)

Now I tend to be a little bit of a worry-wart since 9/11 and more since Katrina. We take some very basic things for granted - food, water, light, heat etc... Bottom line is, every family / household needs to be able to survive at least 3 days before any outside help. In a MAJOR disruption, there can be no guarantees.
