Re: O/T No-Battery Flashlight

I can't say that I have one of those but I have seen different products along the same lines. I've seen a couple other flashlights like that where you shake them, and I've seen some and had one somewhere, where you squeeze a handle. Both would be a great camping item. Also along that principle I almost bought a watch a few years back that needed no batteries. Just average arm movement charged it up. Too bad the company was out of stock and I was impatient. Very cool product though.

If that thing rode on the trail in the back of my 5, it would probably stay permanently charged! Good safety item.

Re: O/T No-Battery Flashlight

Yeah, whoop-ee. I have one that works by a generator you operate by squeezing. It's as bright as anything with a krypton bulb but you get tired of squeeing it after a while.

Buy two mag-lites and carry a spare pair of batteries.

Re: O/T No-Battery Flashlight

It would still be a good emergency item. That way you'll atleast have someway to have light, even if you have to make the power.

Re: O/T No-Battery Flashlight

As far as I'm concerned nothing beats a rechargable Mag light. They are 10x brighter then most lights plus will take being lost in the woods for a few weeks, being rained on, rolling off the back of a flat bed truck going down the road, and being run over a few times by a 1 ton truck [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] and still work. Although if you remember to put them back in the charger in the cab of the truck when your done with them they don't get tested tuff like above. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Plus they make a nice backup incase you don't have a night stick according to a few cop buddies. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
