The days of carrying sturdy flashlights were gone a long time ago when our smartphones doubled as flashlights. How many times have you been stuck in the dark hopelessly with either your smartphone battery drained or with the software held up in some other application?
Worry no more, because SLUGHAUS, a San Fransisco company, has introduced a Bullet which performs like a waterproof, fireproof, small, resilient, and bright mini multi-use LED light. The company launched the flashlight in 2016 which became a huge success. The tiny LED flashlight is exactly the size of a bullet, measuring 10.5 millimeters by 30 millimeters and weighing only 6 grams. It is not only the size of a bullet; it even looks like one with its tapered shape. The Bullet comes in two color options of Matte Black and Gunmetal. The flashlight turns on when you twist it by a quarter and turns back off when twisted in the opposite direction.
The flashlight is made with aerospace grade aluminum, and the company claims that it is indestructible containing no glass or filament parts. It is powered by LR41 Button Cell batteries and produces 15 lumens of light from the tiny LED. The gizmo can last a lifetime and is a brilliant tool for any person. This product is something which you can carry anywhere as it weighs 6 grams only.
The best part? The flashlight costs only $15, if you order it right now on their website, you can get it on sale for $10.
The company has recently redesigned the entire gadget to introduce the Bullet 2.0. The Bullet 2.0 is even smaller than its predecessor and can withstand anything from rain, sleet, hail, snow, heat and most importantly of all, water. This one produces 20 lumens of light, measuring only 10mm x 26mm and weighs just 5 grams.
The ultra waterproof and the portable flashlight can be run over be a car and still survive. The project Bullet 2.0 is live on Kickstarter, and you can back it to get yours delivered by November.
