    Awesome $15 LED light for solar watches.

    The Casio Lineage and Eco Drive arrived today. Put them outside this evening for about an hour. The sun was already low in the sky and it was cloudy, so they did not get much of a charge. The Casio arrived displaying "med" and the Eco Drive was dead. After being out for an hour the Casio was still on med and the Eco Drive's power reserve barely moved and the second hand was moving every 2 seconds. Decided to use this LED work light to charge more. Did not expect much. But the light surprised me! After just 4 hours, the Casio was on HI and the Eco Drive was reading over 1/2. Here's a link to the light. l mounted it to a camera tripod.

    Nice deal, thanks for the heads up. I have one of those CoolFire solar watch chargers, which is nice for being discreet. But I suppose if one doesn’t mind the bright lamp, the 1000 lumens is a good way to go!

    Don’t know what prices are like over the pond but here the Coolfire is twice the price of SeikoAutomatic’s solution.

    Yeah, almost that here in the States. The nice thing about the little CoolFire one is that it’s discreet. When a watch is on it you can have the lights out and go to sleep. The work lamp probably isn’t as flexible in that regard. However, a work lamp does allow one to charge up more than one at a time!
