Why a Zipcord?
Simple. By winding the dynamo using a pullstring instead of a crank handle, it is possible to make the dynamo spin faster, with less effort.
This flashlight is not flimsy in any way. It is features rock solid construction with a rubberized finish that ensures a good grip. The LED elements will last over 100,000 hours, and never need to be replaced. We’ve not even been able to break the zipcord on our demo model after months of use, the mechanism is built very well.
Internal to the flashlight is a replaceable NiMh battery pack that is charged from the dynamo. The pullstring dynamo can also provide power to other devices via the 6V outlet jack on the heel of the flashlight. This same jack can also be used to charge the flashlight from an 6VDC AC wall adaptor (not included).
