When it comes to electric gadgets, a flashlight is just about as basic as you can get. But Glowstone has attempted to create a flashlight that’s anything but basic, with its high-powered versatility making it handy for all sorts of applications, from camping, to the garage, to pulling double duty as a bicycle light.
The Glowstone Flashlight is designed to be the flashlight you can take anywhere, for when your smartphone flash isn’t getting the job done. In Boost mode it can pump out 900 lumens, which is just a little less than what the average car headlight, or 65-watt incandescent globe puts out. So it’s bright.
It’s also compact and rugged. Its case measures 68 x 51 x 13 mm (2.6 x 2 x 0.5 in), and it’s built from silicone with 60 Shore hardness. That means you can drop it from most heights, drive over it, throw it against walls, or stomp on it to your heart’s content. It’s also IP69X rated and can be used up to 30 m (100 ft) underwater.
