This little light is built to last with the same high quality of all the GoalZero products.

A good light, with one issue

This is a really good, bright light. It will light up a decent size area quite nicely, and is good for reading. The only downside I found was like Joe, the flexible cable is NOT strong enough to hold the head up in any position at all. It seems to just sag and fall down to the point of being useless. That being said, I found a solution that makes the light usable. I purchased a NiteIze 12" GearTie, a flexible wire with a plastic coating, intended to be bent over and over, to tie equipment tog...

The only downside I found was like Joe, the flexible cable is NOT strong enough to hold the head up in any position at all. It seems to just sag and fall down to the point of being useless. That being said, I found a solution that makes the light usable. I purchased a NiteIze 12" GearTie, a flexible wire with a plastic coating, intended to be bent over and over, to tie equipment together. I wrapped the GearTie around the length of the flexible shaft for the light, and it is now strong enough to stay in whatever position I put it in. The light is now usable. The thing is, you should not have to do this with a new light, but that is really the only downside, and it was an easy fix.

Firefly USB Light

By

from Milwaukee WI

I purchased this to have a small light on hand for camping, car camping, and emergencies. I find it throws a decent amount of light, and the bulb can also be used with the Switch 8 in a pinch, but without the twisting cord. The cord holds its shape when used with the battery pack, and I can see where it could be very useful in getting the light to places you might not otherwise be able to reach.

I am currently ...

By

from Netherlands

I am currently considering a Goal Zero Panel (Nomad 7) and found this light at a sale. I bought it because it would give me an idea of the quality of Gaol Zero products and, let's face it, you can't have enough lights. I really lik ethe product. It has a great light output. The 1,5W LED really pakcs a punch. And it's a nice warm colour too. I had no trouble reading with this light. There are some issues though. The bendy wire twists. That is to say if you bend it at a 90 degree angle and point the light up it will sag. So you have to make sure the wire can't twist to prevent this prom happening. This limits your freedom of use. You don't really need to use the extention cable. You can easely plug the lamp direclty in a power pack. Then there is the temperature issue. The light get's hot really fast. Since there is no on/off switch you have to pull out the light when hot. I find it odd that the light doesn't have a switch, because of this. Somehow I think it was intended to have a switch, because the switch is mentioned on their website and in the manual. It just isn't there. The coloured filters are nice, but pretty useless. Let me explain that one. There are three coloured filters: red, blue and green. A red filter is said to preserve night vision, yet it's not only the colour that makes that possible, also a low brightness. Since this light has a minimum output of 60 lumen it's unfit to preserve night vision. Blue is for hunting or light dicipline. It's to bright and uncontrolled for light dicipline (it's a floodlight) and may be used for fluid detection when hunting. But again a floodlight would be undesireable. The green is for mapreading. Again the brightess is too high to be used in covert situations. I know, this isn't a tactical product. So you can't expect those qualities from this product. Yet it makes me wonder why they are included. For a disco party perhaps? Or from what I've read earlier, to suit the mood. My last point of critique is the lack of a storage pouch. There is no way to easely store the parts supplied. I whish Goal Zero didn't include the filters and added a pounch instead. All this critique doesn't mean I don't like the product. I bought it at a sale so I diddn't do any reserach prior to buying. The one thing that does bother me are the incorrect specifications. If both the website and the manual state that there is an on/off switch on the lamp while there isn't one on the product it makes me weary to spend €120,- on the solar panel I wanted to buy.

Faults

Extention shaft does not support light. Light get very hot very quickly. Wasting energy as heat?

Good idea, poor execution

By

from Undisclosed

Like many others, I also found the cable to be useless in supporting the weight of the light. The light just droops over like a dead flower. Also, the particular unit I ordered was faulty, only intermittently turning on signaling a poor connection and a complete waste of money. Goal Zero has a great marketing team, but the designers and factory in China are in need of improvement. Stay away from this one. Your light could turn up faulty as well. There are cheaper and more reliable third party USB-powered lights on the market.

Cable/cord is poor quality

By

from La Verne CA  -  Quality Oriented

The Firefly USB light would be excellent if the cable was stiff enough to stay in place when positioned. However, it does not and never did even when I first pulled it out the box. It is basically useless as is and I plan on returning it.

Very useful

By

from edge of the Atlantic  -  Value Oriented

My biggest negative on this is that it heats up extremly fast and is very hot, wondering if that will impact the life of the product? There is no heatsinking. Also is this a current LED emitter/driver best suited for this usage? How about a high and low setting? Good output for camping (I used it was a 18650 x4 battery pack) and home power outage (lights up a room pretty decent). haven't used the colored filters but white lense is useful when the open lamp is too glaring.

The near perfect companion!

By

from Dayton, OH  -  Value Oriented

This is a great light to use with a PC, gaming system or while camping. Very bright light replaces the need to have conventional light on in the room or a lantern on a camp out for a small group. And you can even customize your mood by using the included colored lenses. Like a few other reviews, only change to make it perfect would be a slightly stiffer flex cord so it stays in truly any position.
