More on the Goal Zero Portable Torch 250:
The Torch 250 Power Hub and Flashlight is the most versatile, reliable source of power and light for any situation. Boasting a powerful, 4,400mAh lithium battery, 250 total lumen output, a 1.5A USB port to charge your gear, as well as a built-in solar panel and hand crank, this multi-function flashlight is the only piece of gear you’ll need in an emergency.
Multiple Light Options for Every Situation
The Torch 250 is the only flashlight you’ll ever need. With the push of a button, light up a room with the Torch’s 70 lumen floodlight or 180 lumen spotlight–another push and save on power and extend runtimes up to 48 hours by utilizing the Torch’s high and low light options. In addition to bright LED light, the Torch also features red emergency lights, perfect for signaling distress.
Stay Connected During an Outage
Keeping in touch with friends and family during an emergency gives everyone peace of mind. With the Torch 250’s 1.5A USB port, you’ll be able to keep phones, tablets, and other USB devices charged up, even when the power is out.
Built-in Charging Cable, Solar Panel, and Hand Crank
Never worry about buying another battery–the Torch 250 boasts a powerful, internal lithium battery that’s rechargeable no matter where you are. Charge up from any USB port in about 7 hours, and the cable is built in so you’ll never lose it. If the power is already out, use the hand crank–1 minute of cranking can generate about 10 minutes of light. Even better? Leave the Torch 250 in the sun where its solar panel can trickle charge the internal battery so you’re never left in the dark.
