pro: gives off good bright light and plugging it it does charge it. Con: charging using solar is useless. Had the new light out in full sun for the day and all the unit did was get extrémale hot to the touch with no recharge. I called the company and was told ..oh, yes, well it is not really meant for to do that, you should plug it in. It takes over 24 hours to recharge. As recommended I have it sitting in the window.. full sun. At the rate it is charging it will take about 5 days. They should not market this as a solar torch.
Nice light but will not charge in a window. My window are fuel efficient are triple pane with argon gas and perhaps that combo keeps appropriate solar rays from the solar panel. So solar charing virtually useless unless you have an outdoor sunny spot that is safe from theft.
