Thin is in with the Flatlight flashlight


Bucking traditions in the flashlight form factor, Flatlight, a Kickstarter project by Tater Tot Designs, brings in the thin. The Flatlight is 3.57″ X 1.99″ X 0.11″, giving it a credit card-like profile. An array of LED transmits light to a fiber optic backlight that evenly distributes the light through the lens. Although I don’t think the Flatlight will replace your main flashlight for heavy-duty lighting needs, it does look like it would be a great lightweight addition to a purse, camera bag, or even gear bag for limited low light use. The Flatlight runs on two CR2016 batteries and is stated to have a 10+ hours of continuous usage.

The Flatlight’s funding period ends February 13, 2013.  A minimum pledge of $20 gets you one Flatlight, with higher funding options for multiples.  Shipping is planned for May 2013.
