The Solar LED Flashlight

Geeker energy: solar led flashlight 1 The Solar LED Flashlight

Of all eco-friendly gadgets, a lot of the eco-friendly lights are my absolute least favorite gadget.  Specifically the flashlights that are powered by being wound up.  They always seem to be far too dim to actually see what it is you’re doing.  Hopefully since this one is solar powered as opposed to the type that you wind up, they’ll be a little on the brighter side of things.  Certainly the number of LED lights that they crammed into this flashlight will help at least a little bit.

It has a total of 10 LED lights within it, one would think that would make it easier to see what it is you’re shining the light on.  The flashlight itself is 250mm long with a diameter of 28mm.  It has a built-in rechargeable Li-on battery.  Unfortunately on Chinavasion, they aren’t selling these individually.  At least that’s how it appears.  They give the price each if you buy 2 or more as being set at $9.79 a piece.  However, they don’t give the price of them if you buy just one flashlight.

Volvo Working on Storing Energy in a Car’s Body Panels

“Imagine a car whose body also serves as a rechargeable battery.”
One of the main challenges with electric cars is that batteries are bulky and heavy. Volvo is trying to solve that problem by turning a car’s body panels into an energy storage device, an idea that, if feasible, would kill two birds with one stone by freeing up space inside the car and making it relatively lighter….
