      Comments about (VM)GOAL ZERO LLC GOAL ZERO Firefly USB Light:

      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.

      Comments about (VM)GOAL ZERO LLC GOAL ZERO Firefly USB Light:

      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.

        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.

              Since it came with my Switch 8, it replaced the Lunalight in my kit, seemed more robust and had ability to change light colours, especially with the red lens to preserve night vision

              This is a nice bright light. I like being able to aim it where I want. But that's also its downfall. The supporting bendable shaft is too bendable, and refuses to hold the light in position. the only way I was able to make is usable was to wrap a Niteize bendable cable tie around the shaft, adding some stiffness. Now it stays where I put it.

              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 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.

              Comments about (VM)GOAL ZERO LLC GOAL ZERO Firefly USB Light:

              The light is bright and useful. However, the light head is too heavy and causes the bendable extension to not work properly and cause the light to constantly fall towards the ground. The light does not stay in place at all. The head is very heavy for a small light and I thought that with the diffusers off, the light would be a spot, it is not. It is just a worse flood light. I believe that the light needs to be redeveloped to work as a spot or flood light, made lighter and the bendable cord needs to be stiffened to make this a quality product.
