Product Description

The hand-squeeze operated penguin flashlight torch from Ecotronic is renewable energy in a fun package. We love the Penguin here at Ethicalsuperstore.com, and we think you will too.

The Penguin is cute, brightly coloured, and suitable for children. It'll brighten up the darkest evening, and it's educational at the same time. Teach children not to use batteries but generate electricity by themselves!

Just squeeze the penguin's wing for one minute, and this dynamo light with its superbright LED lamp will shine for up to 5 minues.

Caroline  asked this question on 13th May 2008

Q: Does this require continual squeezing to keep the light on, or will a few minutes or so save up a charge to keep the light on without having to squeeze it?

A: The penguin will store charge - so no need for continual squeezing. John.

Denise  asked this question on 22nd May 2008

Q: What do you do to get this charged in the first place and then keep it charged?

A: The torch is charged by squeezing the 'wing' of the penguin. 1 minute of squeezing will provide approx 5 minutes of illumination. John.

Michelle  asked this question on 28th Dec 2009

Q: By squeezing for a minute, is that squeezing the wing in and out repeatedly for a minute? Sorry if it is a silly question!

A: That is correct. The torch is charged by squeezing the wing in and out. The in and out motion operates a dynamo that charges the internal battery. Andy

About Ecotronic

Ecotronic is the innovative new toy company bringing us the ultimate in eco-friendly techno fun. These fantastic toys will keep your little ones engaged for hours without using a scrap of electricity, because although they have lights and sounds, absolutely no batteries are needed!

Instead each toy has an internal dynamo, so wind it up or give it a shake, and watch games come to life! This use of alternative energy is great news for the planet, as it is estimated that 900 million batteries are used each year in the UK alone, and the majority of these end up in land fill. It’s great news for parents as well, because with no batteries required, the fun will never run out!

Ecotronic toys are boxed with the environment in mind too, packaged in biodegradable ‘Geopacks’, with no ties or wires, using nothing but recycled paper.
