The Batteryless Flashlight - Good Bye Dead Batteries
How often have you gone to get a flashlight only to find the batteries were dead? Too often I'm sure, and it's very frustrating. Well, a batteryless flashlight may be the perfect answer.
How does a batteryless flashlight work?
Actually, there are a few different models of these types of flashlights. The first is called the shake flashlight. Just as the name implies, you give it a shake and the LED light powers it up. Once it's going, it will stay on for approximately 30 minutes or so.
When the shake flashlight begins to go out, just shake it again. The LED bulbs in these lights are good for 10,000 hours before needing replaced.
One thing to be aware of with these lights is their magnet. A shake flashlight uses a big magnet inside. This magnet can be attracted to anything nearby that is magnetized. You have to keep them away from computers.
Another type of batteryless flashlight is the kind that comes on by being squeezed.
When you squeeze the casing it starts a small dynamo generator that in turn runs the LED light. Different models will have different run times.
Lastly, you can find a wind up flashlight. It works internally like the squeeze flashlight in that it has a small dynamo generator that runs the LED bulb. The difference is that it has a foldaway handle that you wind up to give it power.
These flashlights are great for use around the house or car. Put them in the glove box of the car or in a kitchen drawer.
You won't have to worry about changing batteries and they work very quickly when you need. So, don't let your old battery flashlight leave you in the dark. Get one of these units before you need it the next time.
