    Wind Up Torch??

    Are these any good? They has some in Aldi but ran out, so which ones are good out there?

    Looking for suggestions and and maybe some feedback from others who own a similar product.

    Thanks

    depends, I bought one in Makros that seemed okay but a set of two from another local shop where a windup lasted about as long as a match.....

    Aye, Trilite Torches, Shake up and Works, I can't sell on here because a) It's company stock, and b) only allowed 2 of each.

    I hope that message you just sent me isn't true X)

    My Dad has one that's called a Magic one or something or other,dunno whether it's any good,so all in all i can't help

    Why not make a gift to people in Japan as a charitable gift, tax deductable and it would make everyone feel good :-)

    It's basically this:

    Ok,the old lets pretend i never sent you a message hmmm

    How do i do a screen grab of it .......

    i bought a kinetic torch a few years ago - no winding needed - just a couple of shakes as the bit of metal passes through the copper wire ... gets a good charge and lasts long enough fow whats needed... cost me £1 - if i'd known how good it was going to be i would've bought them all !!

    I have a wind up one, brand is varta i think, it's excellent, really bright and lasts pretty well

    Yes that is it, I've had it about 3yr, I'd happily buy another one if needed

    I have 2, a DuraPro one, which i got as a set of 2 from Costco but now does not charge, and one that i bought about 6 years ago from TheGadgetShop, about £20, just looked and there is no brand on it, but it still works well.
