Light up your life! (And cook some eggs while you’re at it)

Single-purpose items are so 2009!  Why invest in a flashlight that merely illuminates your surroundings when you can have one wielding enough power to light matches or prepare breakfast?!  Enter the Torch Ultra-Bright Flashlight!  Billed as the most powerful consumer flashlight, the Torch Ultra-Bright Flashlight packs enough power (4100 lumens) to roast marshmallows, burn plastic, and…illuminate your surroundings!  For a mere $299 – you can be the life of the campsite!

Disclaimer: The Gadgeteer does not condone any misuse of severely powerful flashlights…please use with discretion.

    One flashlight to rule them all…one flashlight to blind them. One flashlight to cook your eggs, and in the darkness find them!

    that’s nothing. they’re working on a flashlight that not only cooks eggs – it lays them too.

    … because EVERYONE needs a flashlight that lasts 15 mins and can cook an egg during those 15 mins.

    Battery life must be horrid.
    Tough luck if you want bacon as well.

    I wonder if you could install a solar spectrum light bulb and use it for tanning on your drive to work. That isn’t against the law yet.

    Battery life is 15 mins, according to thinkgeek.

    what happens when you put a magnifying glass in front of it? Hmmm.

    You generate 1.21 gigawatts of electricity and instantly find yourself teleported back to 1889.

    Jhon: Great Scott!

    Clearly I need to get this along with three of my friends and see what happens when we all cross the beam. You know, find out if it’s “bad”. :-)

    Darth Vader, eat your heart out. Why hand-build a light-saber when you can just buy this bad boy that not only slices through hands, but also burns your eyeballs and strikes fear into the hearts of all egg-layers everywhere.

    Enough with the budget-busting DeathStar already. Get a few thousand of these puppies and strap them to something big and round and hey presto, instant DeathStar on a budget.

    Not a flashlight for kids. No it’s not.
