solar light last longer than flashlight Answered

My husband was working on the fence, as it was getting dark i went to get the flashlight which if you have it on too long it will dimmer too soon, so i have this idea of using our only outdoor solar light which last 8 to 10hours and he could see very good with it.  I think it is a great idea for when the electricity goes out you can use the solar light in your home.

I used one of these to help change a flat tire one night, had it in the trunk taking a couple to a buddy's house for a upcoming lawn party. Worked a treat, one to shine down the road for a warning and the other to light the tire. After my using them for a good half hour, they were still bright and finished off the lawn party quite handily. You had a good idea, use what you have when you need it and thanks for sharing a very good application of a common item. this is the sort of thinking that Instructables bring out in us all.

For sure.....although most people wouldn't have need of a flashlight that last 5-10 hours, when it IS needed, it is certainly one solution.
