Whether you’re safe at home or braving the great outdoors, winding up stuck in the dark with no electricity supply at hand can be a real bugger. But worry not: with Goal Zero Torch 250 Power Hub and Flashlight, you’ll never have to fear the Boogeyman, vampires and other horrible dangers lurking in the night because this innovative little gizmo brings together a handy flashlight and a reliable energy source for all power cut emergencies.
Dubbed as the ‘most versatile, reliable source of power and light for any situation,’ Torch 250 Power Hub and Flashlight by famous solar kit manufacturer Goal Zero combines an ultra-bright light and handy power source in one smart-looking energy brick. Measuring 10 x 3.5 x 1.75 inches, Goal Zero Torch 250 LED flashlight offers a variety of lighting modes suitable for any emergency situation: choose between the 70 lumen floodlight and 180 lumen spotlight to chase away the dark any time, anywhere.
Depending on the power management modes and lighting options (high/low light), this little torch can run up to 48 hours on a full charge. And in case of unexpected trouble outdoors, you can also use the Goal Zero 250 flashlight as a signal torch since it is also equipped with red emergency lights for ultimate versatility.
In addition to its versatile lighting functions, Goal Zero Torch 250 Power Hub and Flashlight can also be used as a clever energy source in case of unexpected power failures. Fitted with a powerful long-lasting 400mAh lithium battery that can stand hundreds of use cycles, the little flashlight-come-power hub sports a 1.5A USB port to make sure your phone, tablets and other beloved electronics remain juiced up even when the lights go out elsewhere in your neighborhood.
And believe it or not, there’s still more to this little gadget: in order to keep things as simple and yet as flexible as possible, the Goal Zero Torch 250 Power Hub and Flashlight can be charged in three different ways, either via the included USB cable (recharge takes approximately 7 hours), by direct exposure to sunlight (use the 0.8W Monocrystalline solar panel cell on the back of the flashlight or connect the torch to a compatible solar panel like Nomad 7 to juice your gadget up in 7-14 hours) or by the included hand crank (10 minutes of light for 1 minute of cranking). Now that’s what you call ultimate versatility, isn’t it?
Weighing as few as 14.4 ounces, Goal Zero Torch 250 Power Hub and Flashlight also has a built-in charging and low-battery protection system so it won’t fail you when you need it most if you leave it lying around for a couple of months – just make sure you top it up every 3-6 months, and you’ll always have a reliable light and energy source ready to use indoors and outdoors alike when all other power suppliers fail you.
