Forever Flashlight

A flashlight with no batteries!

The Forever Flashlight uses no batteries or bulbs. Instead it uses Faraday’s Principle of Induction and a bright LED to produce light without batteries. The light is shaken for about 30 seconds to recharge a capacitor and it will then provide about 5 minutes of light. As the light is shaken, a magnet passes through a metal coil generating electricity. During prolonged use it can be shaken for 10-15 seconds every 2 or 3 minutes.

The light requires no maintenance so it can be left in your home or car for a longtime but will still be ready to produce light. The bright LED will last for thousands of hours and does not burn-out like a typical lightbulb – it should never need replacement.

    This flashlight DOES have batteries, if you look inside you will see 3 lithium cells.If you remove these cells you see how little power you actually get from the shaking. With the batteries dead you can keep shaking the light constantly and you will only see a tiny flicker of light.
