New Wind-Up LED Flashlight: The Illuminator

illuminator_small.jpgI have a “forever flashlight” — the kind that you shake for 20 seconds and get 5-10 minutes of light. This flashlight seems to be an improvement on that idea. It uses three ultra-bright LEDs. One minute of wind-up provides up to one hour of light. It’s available from Amazon.

    LED’s require very little power. May be hard to power anything that requires more energy. (many watches already use a similar mechanism)
