mPower Emergency Illuminator

mpower-flaslightTo say that the mPower Emergency Illuminator is a flashlight is like saying a Rolex is a watch. Granted, it is a true statement, but this mPower Emergency Illuminator is like the flashlight of the gods.

Well, it was designed by the car gods, and, by that, I mean, Porsche. Porsche Design Studio equipped the mPower with two widely available CR 123 3 volt lithium batteries. But what makes this flashlight the tops is it also includes a “groundbreaking reserve lithium battery with a shelf life of at least 20 years”.

That’s right, a shelf life of 20 years. I have no idea how long of an actual shine you would have with this, but dang, that’s 20 years! Gilligan and his friends could have used this. By the way, he could have charged some electronic devices like mobile phones, since the device has an accessory USB connection. Maybe that’s how the castaways of Gilligan’s Island listened to that radio all those years. Am I the only one who ever noticed that the batteries of this portable radio never wore out?

But enough references to old sixties shows, you should be able to get the mPower Emergency Illuminator in Titanium Satin and Black Chrome for about $289.00 in March 2010. You can read more about the mPower Emergency Illuminator here. I had a chance to handle it at CES Unveiled, and it was sleek.

OK, emergency -> you break the internal barrier of that reserve battery. You get: 2 hours light. Whoaaa, amazing – a real life-saver. ^^
