The kindling it comes with is fairly useless - it came with 2 pieces which are too large to use, but too hard to cut to size easily. It would also be good to have some sort of holder to hold it in place, as too much movement prevents it lighting properly.
I would also recommend following the instructions to wear sunglasses - It is very bright, and you have to look at it to make sure it is positioned correctly.
Cons: Takes time and full sunlight in order to get this to work. Does not work well in winter month due to angle of the sun. Must practice in order to get a big enough ember to blow into a flame. Must have a steady hand and a good eye or make a stand for it.
Light enough to toss in your backpack/kit bag and just have it More of a novelty item than a real survival tool.
