I used the HiLight while I was away on a few small tours. We were hiking in the night to the Brocken in Harz then to Niedersachsen and Sachsenanhalt all in Germany. We were a group of 5 people and the HiLight was also constantly used in our caravan at Clausthal-Zellerfeld and also caravan at Steinhuder Meer.
I like the HiLight as it is very simple to use! It does not require you to take the battery out of the charger and avoids the trouble of having to attach a separate solar-panel. All I had to do was to put the HiLight on my backpack during the day, let the sun shine on it and in the evening I simply switch it on.
Also I like design of the short stripes as it allows me to attach it to a backpack and hang it for light.
I see the use of HiLight for both small and big groups, which want a hassle free experience with solar power, not need to set it up like an experiment. I would recommend the HiLight for pathfinders and officials like THW, fire department or military – because it is easy to use and nobody can connect something in the wrong way.
