Flashlight Garden Nozzle

Lighted Garden Nozzle (Image courtesy Restoration Hardware)
By Andrew Liszewski

I suppose this is one of those products where you look at it and either go: “hey! I could really use that!” or “why on Earth would anyone need to water their plants at night?” I would be in that latter group, but since my habit for procrastination usually leaves me doing chores in the middle of the night, I’m sure that someone, somewhere would be in a similar situation and have a use for this. And if that picture isn’t descriptive enough for you, it’s your run-of-the-mill garden nozzle with a built-in LED flashlight. It’s also powered by 2 x AA batteries since you probably don’t want to be using an extension cord while watering. You can get it from Restoration Hardware for just $12.49.

    Serious question: Why doesn't it just use the water pressure to power the LEDs?

  • tomlor

    Because then it would shoot/leak water even when you don't squeeze the handle, the same reason why a dam lets water through to generate electricity. If you plug it up the water doesn't go anywhere and you can't do work.

  • tomlor

    Though if you don't mind the flashlight only working when you squeeze the handle then I suppose you could. Though I couldn't begin to tell you how much electricity you could generate from a garden hose and what the effect that would have on your water pressure is…

    I would count this is one of those “interesting idea, but I'll never use it for its intended purpose” products. When I need a hose, it's always in the daylight, but I would imagine that this could be useful for some people

    the light *should* be powered from the flow of water!!! it could spin a little flywheel and power the leds like those hand crank flashlights. hm, maybe I should apply for a patent on that]! ;)

    Handy little tool to have around – I always love inventive uses of outdoor lights.
