Iain Sinclair is known for their wallet sized gadgets like the Cardsharp credit card knife, which I reviewed last fall. They recently sent me their EON Classic Flashlight to review. The EON is another credit card sized device that can be stored in your wallet, enabling you to carry a flashlight with you at all [...]
It’s always a pain to try to find small items at the bottom of your bag when it’s dark out. The Bag Light solves that problem with a super bright LED that is activated with a squeeze. It is made of soft silicone rubber and easily fastens and unfastens with a magnet. Attach it to the [...]
I have reviewed many fancy flashlights on The Gadgeteer, most of them relatively small, compact and for their size, pretty bright. Well, this time I am reviewing the Fenix TK70 courtesy of Fenix Outfitters. The TK70 is neither small nor lightweight but is supposed to be brighter than all my other flashlights combined….car light on [...]
One thing you can never be without is a good flashlight, especially one that has a bright brilliant light. But for me a flashlight is just a flashlight. That is unless it has something about it that gives it a unique characteristic. And the PrimeTorch 1010 by Primus is one such flashlight.
It seems like all the cool stuff is coming from Kickstarter these days. The Packlight is another product that will hopefully see the light of day (sorry, I couldn’t resist the pun). The Packlight is a 45 LED light that can bend into convenient shapes. It has neodymium magnets so that it can be affixed [...]

Got a dark cabinet or kitchen sink counter? Me too. Maybe trying to catch a mouse scrounging around at 3AM? Me too. Wish that you had a light for your scary closet that would work like your refrigerator light and are too much of a total klutz to wire up a real light? Me too. [...]
We know LEDs are great for flashlights, status lights for your smartphones, and a bunch of other uses, but raise your hand if you ever thought to use LEDs on a bottle of vodka. Anyone? Anyone? MEDEA Spirits must be the only one with a vision because they recently announced the world’s first LED programmable [...]
I have a weakness for small flashlights. When a company offers one for review, I’ll almost always say yes. That’s why I didn’t hesitate to agree to review two new LED flashlights from ICON when they asked if I would be interested. We have reviewed their products before and have appreciated both their unique style [...]
I don’t know about you, but I hate it when I go to a restaurant that is so dark that I can’t read the items on the menu. I found something that might help. It’s the UltraOptix. It is an LED lighted 2X magnifying lens with a 6X portion that is small and thin enough [...]
Before the invention of the wrist-watch, there was the pocket-watch. Developed in the 16th century, the pocket-watch was the main portable way of telling time. It was only after World War I that wrist-watches became popular after the design of trench-watches for the military. Now in the 21st century, we can tell time in so [...]
Back in the stone age when I was a kid, we had classic toys like Etch-a-Sketch, Spirograph and Lite-Brite. I had the first two, but never had the pleasure of having a Lite-Brite. This was a simple toy that encouraged creativity and imagination. It allowed you to make pictures with little colored plastic pegs that [...]
The Official LEGO LED Flashlight from Brando would make a fun (and useful) addition to any LEGO fan’s collection. Just wind his arm to charge the internal battery. LEDs are located in the figure’s feet. The only thing I see missing is a hat or hair This product is available from Brando for $32.90. Brando [...]
When I was growing up there were many gadgets around the house that I had a thing for. Things from mechanical pencils to electric lighters to flashlights. So when I got a chance to review the Icon Modus 2 flashlight from Icon I jumped on the chance to do it. After playing around with it [...]
