A flashlight can prove to be a crucial product to have around the house, especially in an emergency situation, when the power is down. However, most flashlights have a relatively limited life span and they eventually run out, sometimes exactly when one needs them most. Nevertheless, that's not at all the case with the device you're about to see as follows, namely the 1,000 Hour Flashlight presented by the people over at Hammacher Schlemmer, a device that, as the name says it, is guaranteed to work up to 1,000 hours, at least as far as the bulb is concerned.
Thus, the flashlight uses a 60-watt high-powered H4 quartz halogen bulb rated to last 1,000 hours and produces almost natural daylight illumination at a color temperature of 4,300 Kelvin (natural daylight has a color temperature of 5000K). This makes it even brighter than some tungsten photofloods used by professional photographers, at least according to what the vendor has to say on the subject.
Much in the same way as most of the other advanced flashlights available on the market, the device is powered by a rechargeable battery, which provides up to 80 minutes of operation on a full charge in full power mode, producing 1,100 lumens. Furthermore, it sports a hardened glass chimney that adds strength along the length of the bulb for extra shatter-resistance, as well as a hardened glass lens surrounded by a latex rubber sleeve shields the bulb chamber.
Additionally, the 39.97 cm x 30 cm, 5.45 kilo device sports an adjustable stand and carry handle, and can be very easily recharged via the included AC adapter of 12-volt DC car adapter. The 1,000 Hour Flashlight retails for around 90 US dollars, which is a pretty OK price to pay, taking into account the features this thing can provide.
