Keychain Dynamo Flashlight – teeny tiny self powered lamp


Keychain Dynamo Flashlight. Don’t know about you, but the thought of all that effort cranking levers to get some light on those big camping lanterns puts me right off my dinner. Which is why this tiny thing appeals. Not much winding needed here, shirley? Two LEDs, three pretty colours. No arm ache. Bargain. $8.00.

 The Smallest Dynamo for small piece of keychain flashlight!

  • These would be great gadgets to keep in your glove compartment or scattered around the house in strategic locations. Also great for backpacking.

  • I think I picked up one of these (or real similar) last year at Fry’s or such, I let the kids play with it and guess what it was lost super quickly. They’re cute but a little too small and fragile for my taste. I did like how well the little hand(finger?)crank worked and the decent amount of light for its size while I had it.

  • Nice gadget..but does it have a battery also or we have to rotate the arm regularly?

  • I bought two after seeing it here. They have a battery that holds power for at least 24 hours, very bright. The only thing is one broke in under 48 hours. Going to try and get it replaced as it was very good while it lasted – buyer beware.
