Product comparisons between Wind Up

Silverpoint and Gelert product comparisons and reviews for their windup torches, minilanterns, minilamps and hand craned lights

These Wind Up (mechanical powered) lanterns, mini lamps and torches are very different in design, price and performance. So which camping/hiking/emergency Wind-Up torch or lamp should you buy?


Silverpoint, Gelert and generic other comparisons

wind up batteryless freepower torches, mini and large lanterns and lamps product comparisons and reviews

The lantern is the largest of the hand powered products reviewed, standing about 30 cm or 1 foot high and around 12 cm wide. It is the bulkiest and least well made but offers a short burst of bright light that will illuminate the area close to it.

The Silverpoint Hiker mini lamp or lantern can provide a bright burst of energy but is not as powerful as the lantern. The Silverpoint is a very well manufactured product and provides a relatively stunning amount of light for its size. Its light also lasts much longer than the others.

The Gelert Torch looks and feels very nice and is not to bulky, fitting into the palm of your hand. Its concentrated beam of light is very bright and picks out objects at a distance. Being a torch it does not provide a lot of general light but it will still secondary light up the rest of a room or tent.

I personally would not choose to take the lantern on a camping or hiking trip due to its size and the fact you could get roughly the same amount of light or even more constant light from the torch or the mini lantern.


Silverpoint mini lantern or the Gelert Torch?

Which is the better product, the Silverpoint Hiker LED Wind-up Camping Lantern or the Gelert 3LED / 1 Function Windup Torch? It depends on what you intend to use them for. The torch is better for hiking and walking during twilight or night as it has a direct beam but the Silverpoint mini Lantern can provide enough light to walk by, as long as you are not needing or expected it to light up the area like a flood light.

The Gelert Torch would give a brighter light for reading when shone on the book but the Sliverpoints light would be more general and diffused.
