How many times have you needed a flashlight on the trail or anywhere for that matter, and you ran out of power because of weak batteries. :give:

Every time you shake this magnetic flashlight you have 20 minutes of steady light, shake it again for 30 seconds and you have another 20 minutes. 5 year Warranty (fix or replace). Waterproof, shock proof, no bulbs or batteries to replace. Do I sound like a commercial yet? :drive:

I just ordered one of these magnetic flashlight, I found the distributor, if we can get a minimum order with a group buy on these, we can probably get them for around $35 vs $45 + shipping. Let me know if you guys are interested. I want to buy another to keep around the house. :amazed:

I'll leave this thread pinned for a while. Btw, no big deal if there is no interest.

John,

I just ordered it and it has not arrived yet. What the guy told me is that it's not as bright as a halogen. It's as bright as an incandescent bulb except that instead of giving out a yellow light it give out a white blue just like the halogen. In reality it is an LED bulb. Good enough for me, let's wait till I get it.

When you get it, give us a write up on it & let us try breaking it at the next meeting! :amazed:

Well guys, received this flashlight today. The blue white dim light takes a while to get used to. I first though it was not enough since I'm used to halogen mags, it will give you enough to see or do what you want. :unsure:

Some of you might not like it, but for not having to carry batteries or bulbs, it's doable. I've already replaced it for the one I had on the TJ. I'll try to bring it to the meeting for you guys to look at, afterwards you can post here your own opinion here for others. :cool:

A local Jeepin' buddy of mine sent me one last month. His wife bought him one and since he and I are "gadget freaks", he sent me one!

I like mine.....here are my comments on it:

Update on this flashlight. Some of you have already seen how it works.

I did some further testing on mine and notice that their claim of 20 minutes is true. I've looked at other manufacturers and they do not hold up a fraction nor the quality like on this particular one.

Since some of you know I'm a bit anal (but only at times):amazed:, here is what I noticed.

The light starts out at a given intensity when it you first turn it on, this last about a minute, it then drops that intensity a bit (still not too bad) for about 10 minutes or so, then it will drop again till the remainder of the light is out.

I've spoken to the manufacturer and returned the one I purchased. I would like to have at least 5 minutes of the first intensity before it drops to the second intensity which is still acceptable. Who know when he will get to this or if he is just humoring me. If this happens it will be even better.

I still have the money that some of you had given me to order these lights at a discount. I know we were satisfied with the product but I'm trying to see if they can be further improved. If I don't here from the manufacturer soon, I will return or rip up the checks.

Rollbar,

While the above seems like a nice light, it requires 2 lithium batteries. My goal is to require no batteries. :amazed:

Ya, I just thought you may have wanted to look @ something else.

I agree w/the no battery thing.

If you find out anything more on it (first 5 min etc) please post.

Thanks,
RollBar
