It’s not exactly your run of the mill luxury shopping item. But my pay Andy Foster, who says he grew up chasing trash trucks, would love The Ecolight® — advertised as “quite likely the last flashlight you’ll ever need to buy”! This is a clean, green, supercapacitor technology so it has no batteries, no bulbs, no waste stream and no toxic components.
But it does have a built-in solar panel that can give you an hour of flashlight power, or you can plug it into an AC outlet or car charger for an ultra-fast charge in just four minutes.
It is made of 100% recyclable plastic and rubber with UV inhibitors. It weighs just 6 oz.
$44 may sound like a hefty price tag, but it’s like buying a digital camera. You’ll never to need to buy or replace the Ecolight’s batteries or bulbs. And its Website says it’s good for about 30,000 charges.
