There is a simple fix to flashlight not working
Please note that the contact on the battery seems to be faulty. It's not making contact = does not work. You need to take it apart. Take out the 4 screws, pry it apart which will expose the battery contact. Bend the contact so it touches the battery. FIXED!
Purchased in December 2014 for A$30.00.

I pulled the dynamo for ages, and also kept it under very bright sun on a balcony for a couple of hours. It doesn't work. Neither the torch nor the charger.
The battery is inside, and the thing lights up when I pull the dynamo, but that's the only thing that comes out of it. A waste of $40.
The Kathmandu hand torch solar/dynamo is awesome. It can charge some phones but not the iPhone, which kinda sucks because I use 1. But the torch is really good because it uses solar power and pull dynamo so that means you don't need to plug it into a wall. I recommend this to people who like to go camping or traveling.
Reliable and energy efficient
Can't charge iPhone
Questions & Answers
Just bought one and left it in the sung or 5 hours but no light. Get a flicker when I wind it but not lasting. What am I doing wrong?
How do you get it to charge? I wound the dynamo for a good 5 or 10 minutes without it taking any charge. What should I do?
If you can't charge it with the pull dynamo, try placing it under a source of sun light to charge it with the solar panel. Now back to the pull dynamo, your dynamo is probably broken, but if it isn't , this how to use it. Pull the dynamo until you see a red segment which marks that it is near the end of the line now you let go of the dynamo line, and repeat those steps for a minute to get fully charged (if your dynamo isn't broken).
