Customer Reviews

Sherpa LED Flashlight is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from No charging cord, no manual included I have had a Freeplay Sherpa X-Ray LED crank flashlight for years. I charge it with the included wall A/C adapter whenever the batteries are dead & in an emergency crank it. Recently I had need for a second one & the X-ray model is apparently no longer made. I found the Freeplay Sherpa. It arrived today. I am disappointed in this product & the company & at first wanted to just return it & buy a much less expensive crank flashlight fron a different manufacturer. Reasons: 1) No product manual included. (Is 1 piece of paper to much for Freeplay to provide?) I found it online & saved as a PDF. While they saved the cost of a single piece of paper, it came at the expense of MY TIME. Very annoying. 2) No charger cord provided! I still may return it due to this failure to provide a cord. I had to spend considerable time on Freeplay website with the FAQ to learn about USB A to mini-USB B 5 pin cords. Then I had to search for a cord that MIGHT be right. I found one that was included with my Harmony 890 Universal remote from 2009. I use it to connect the Harmony remote to my Mac to transfer data back & forth for programing updates. I don’t know the specs of that cable. I don’t know that it conforms to the USB 5V spec. I assume it does. They state the capacity in mA is not critical. Does that mean the charging time will vary depending on just that? I think the mA capacity is in the USB port specs & not in the cord but not being an expert on USB or charging cords, I am unsure. I have USB 2.0 ports I am using to charge (I hope) the new Sherpa. The Harmony cord fits & the Sherpa green light is on but, I don’t know if that means it is charging. Instructions say “The Sherpa is equipped with a LED charge level indicator” all I see is one green light. How do I read the state of charge; 25%, 50% 45% or 100% fully charged? Instructions state 4 hrs. to fully charge & DO NOT charge more than 5 hours! Also the FAQ say this but I think it is when using an A/C adapter, which I am not using since it was not supplied. I am attempting to charge via my computer USB port. I suspect this changes the 4 hour number. The FAQ also state: “Can I leave it plugged in all the time? Yes; the charging current is designed to be low enough to be non-damaging if left on charge continuously. “ Well, which is correct? Do not charge for > 5 hrs., or OK to leave it plugged in all the time? I used to plug my old X-ray in overnight & not worry about damage due to overcharging. But that was using their supplied A/C wall adapter. I do not know if I can leave it charging in my computer overnight or if I must monitor so as to not exceed 5 hours! I plugged Sherpa into a USB port on the side of my keyboard since the other ones are being used for other devices. I looked up my (2007) iMac/ System Report/ Hardware/USB information as the Sherpa is “charging” & it says: Keyboard Hub: Current Available (mA): 500 Current Required (mA): 300 Keyboard Hub/Apple Keyboard: Current Available (mA): 100 Current Required (mA): 20 I do not know if I have 500mA available to the Sherpa & it is using 300mA or if I only have 100mA available & Sherpa is using only 20mA. Again, I’m not an expert. I have no idea if it is or is not charging, how long I should charge it to be @ 100% & if I will ruin it by leaving overnight or not. I looked up price of what I think is the correct cable & it ranges from under $1 To under $10.00 $40 for this flashlight. Probably the most expensive crank flashlight on the market yet, Freeplay cannot include instructions & a very cheap cable? They force their customers to search online for the manual & to either reuse an existing cable they may or may not have or go & buy one. Not good. I’m not happy. I emailed the company & will see if they reply with some answers.
