Eton Blackout Buddy Flashlight Runs On Nothing But Water

Eton Blackout Buddy H2O

 

When it rains, it pours. And when there’s a blackout, well, that’s seemingly the only time when you seem to have misplaced all of your batteries… batteries which you could have otherwise used to power up your flashlight. The good news is that there’s an alternative torch by Eton called the Blackout Buddy H2O.

Its name gives a clue when it comes to what it needs to power up, and it ain’t batteries. Yep, you got that right: this handy flashlight needs nothing but water to run. Just put the Blackout Buddy into a cup that’s filled with water and boom, you’ve got light. It can provide up to 72 hours of illumination, which should hopefully be more than enough. The best part? It retails for only $10.

For Late Night BBQs: Flashlight Grilling Spatula

Flashlight Grilling Spatula

 

I’m sure you’ve felt it once or twice in your life. When it’s dark out and the night is young, that craving, that yearning for meat…cooking on the grill, with the smell of spices and barbecue sauce filling the air. Having a late-night barbecue isn’t the most practical thing in the world, but a utensil that might just help you make it happen is the Grillight.

It’s a stainless steel grilling spatula with a built-in LED light so you can see what you’re cooking, even in the dark. Use it in the morning, use it in the afternoon, use it when the sun’s about to set and when you need extra illumination. The Grillight is dishwasher safe and runs on two AA batteries.

It’s available online for $34.95.

The Hollow Flashlight is Powered By Human Body Heat–And Nothing Else

Flashlight Powered By Body Heat

The Hollow Flashlight by 15-year-old Ann Makosinski is such an awesome and useful gadget, I’m surprised that no one else thought of it earlier. You know how, when there’s an emergency, there’s often a shortage of flashlights or batteries? Hand-cranked flashlights can be useful in such situations, since they’ll need manpower to run.

Turning that crank to power up the flashlight can get tiring after a while though. This is where Ann’s Hollow Flashlight comes in. It wasn’t named that way for nothing, since its handle really is hollow. The base of the flashlight is composed of Peltier tiles, which produce electricity when one side is heated while the other is cooled. In this case, the heat source is its user’s hand, while the cool side is the air in the hollow handle.
