Heavy duty flashlight recharges in 90 seconds


If you find yourself using a powerful flashlight on a regular basis, the above-pictured “Light for Life” lasts for 90 minutes on a single charge and recharges in an astonishing 90 seconds.

At $170, you’re not going to buy it and keep it in your kitchen’s junk drawer but you’ll never have to buy flashlight batteries ever again, as it can be recharged 50,000 times before needing to be replaced.

Light is provided by three big LEDs that put out up to 270 lumens. The quick-charging technology is apparently an “ultracapacitor energy storage system from Ivus Energy Innovations,” according to CNET.
