Myonly complaint about this product is that the switch on the first one I purchased broke within 6 months of purchase. I was going to send it back for a replacement but my partner insisting on trying to fix it. It's a totally non recyclable product and cannot be fixed.
However it's not clear when it's fully charged and the charge hole is difficult to find in dull light as it is black. A useful addition in any updated design would be to have the charge hole in white so that it is easier for those like me - the visually challenged - to find where to stick the cable!
The instructions, like most things nowadays are in small print and not that clear. Maybe I didn't read them enough. The D Light is easy to work out anyway without instructions. It always charges in sunlight or from the mains (genny) but the red light never seems to go off or change colour. So, I never know if it is fully charged and even when charged initially overnight in a house, the red light was still illuminated - maybe I've missed something or still haven't reached maximum charge. It works and for the money spent, seems to be a good investment, especially for the offgridder or camper.
This light is smaller than I imagined. It is 16cm high with the rotating circle fixed at highest. The metal stand cannot be removed but you can rotate the light and place the stand in a suitcase with the light flat. It won't take much room - as a light it is more useful than the torch I usually pack and if you could safely leave it in your room somewhere to catch the sun's rays during the day while you were out - great for lighting a strange bedroom without walking anyone else. Just remember where the on/off switch is.
I am a bit niggled because the USB cable is only 35cm / 14" long another 15cm would have made a lot of difference. The cable has a RED coloured USB plug at one end and a little plug - same as the one on the charger for my Nokia phone - the teeny size. I think I'll take a short USB extension with the light when travelling.
I bought two of the lights and found one already had some charge in it and the other didn't. The one that had charge in it I plugged into my laptop using the USB cable. A red light came on which I assume means it is charging or does it mean the light is connected to a power source.
The red light is still ON some hours after I plugged the light into my laptop. The light when switched on is a bit brighter than when it arrived which I would expect - but when will I know when it is fully charged ?
The leaflet/card that came with it tells you very little. The switch a white push for on and push for off rectangle is situated under the solar cells just above the little red diode light and the socket for the cable.
By the way you can have the light ON when it is plugged into a USB socket thus using and charging at the same time.
Being early March and no much sunlight I am not sure how much charge the other light has received or whether it will in fact light up.
Will be back tomorrow to add the overnight findings to this review.
UPDATE - Well it is 10.30 am. and the first light which has been ON and unconnected to electric power since 3.00 am. so that is seven and a half hours and it is though not bright as at first it is enough to see your way clear across a bedroom floor. The second light lit brightly at 3.00 am. having had only dull daylight I then put that light on USB charge and it has now has a good light.
Neither little red light went out while either of the lights were "ON CHARGE" so I have no idea how much charge the lights have absorbed.
By the way, whilst the unplugged second light was near my laptop screen its red light came on.
So there it is - seven and a half hours and still shining. I am well pleased.
Edit - May 2015
Took it on holiday with me. It was half charged. Left it on the pull-cover which covered our belongings in the back of the car as it is so light in weight and by the time we got to Butlins in Skegness it was fully charged by the sunlight. Never needed the charging cable while away. Just popped it on the apartment's windowsill while away for a top up as I needed it at night to find my way to the bathroom to save switching on the large lights. Great as an additional light to read my Kindle ereader by in bed. Very glad I bought 2 of them.
Never thought about it but it would be a great light to have in dashboard cubbyhole for added light in the car - just leave it in the sunlight e ery so often.
Things I notice from the specification which I like is that it delivers 4 hours of good (from my brief test) light rather than 6 or 8 hours of dimmer light from the hanging "light bulb" type. I also like that the light is concentrated in front (or below if hung) rather than the "light bulb" type diffused light. That, plus the stand, makes it much more versatile.
One other great feature, it can be recharged from USB or a Nokia phone charger.
* UPDATE * JAN 13th 2014
I ordered one of these very recently direct from D-light on Amazon UK on 1 Jan 2014 at £9.15 including delivery, it arrived within a week. This lower price has been the same since the S2 replaced the S1 D.light on Amazon UK last year. The current price on 13 Jan 2014 of £32.36 is extortionate! (almost 4 times the cost) and no matter how good the product DOES NOT CURRENTLY REPRESENT GOOD VALUE hence the 3 stars rather than 5. Although I assume the product remains the same quality, for the time being at least you may be advised to try elsewhere or a different product, I won't be buying any more of these until D.light start selling on Amazon UK again at the lower price (hopefully still £9.15 inc. delivery)
* UPDATE * FEB 20th 2014
Very pleased to see D-light are selling the S2 direct again(on pre-order) A bit disappointed that the price is currently £11.99 (with free delivery), that's still an increase of around 30% compared with the previous £9.15 (but a lot better than the previous £32.36 from the other seller) otherwise I would have awarded 5 stars again.
In this era of expensive energy, getting light for, effectively, nothing is a great feeling. My only previous experience of home solar lamps was of the garden variety, which tend to be very dim and only suitable for mood lighting. As the name of the product shows, this is a task light and gives strong, bright and practical illumination.
I use mine in the bathroom so I can brush my teeth without having to switch the main light on, but the applications are endless. Buy one now and start saving money on bills.
