mPower Emergency Illuminator

Shiver me timbers.  I don’t know if any power outage or apocalypse calls the for a $300 flashlight, but no matter, mPower Emergency Illuminator (flashlight) has plans to go on sale next March.

But it ain’t your garden variety flashlight.  Heck, it ain’t even equitable to the most advanced Maglite.  Designed by the Porsche Design Studio, each tube contains a set of batteries.  The first tube has a set of replaceable and rechargeable CR123 batteries, while the other tube contains a non-rechargeable “OnCommand Reserve Battery” that the company says has a 20-year shelf life.  There’s also a USB port for charging your portable gadgets when in a pinch.  To replace the ‘reserve battery’ you’ll need to drop $25, but that’s nothing when you consider the comfort you’ll take in knowing that you’ve got light 20 years down the road.
