Overview: The Torch Crank Light is a rechargeable light, charged using the built-in solar panel, the built-in hand crank, the included AC adapter, or the included 12 volt car adapter (with cigarette lighter type plug). The Torch has two banks of LEDs, lit separately. (They can't be lit simultaneously.) The 5 LEDs on the end act as a directional flashlight. The 18 LEDs on the side provide a wider light pattern, more like a flood light. You can easily hang the torch using the retractable hook on the end.
