No matter how you phrase it, the ChargeLight is a backup battery and an LED flashlight in one compact package. (Click the image for a larger view.) Charge the ChargeLight on its little dock, and you can use the dock’s USB port to charge up another device at the same time. BiteMyApple.co didn’t include tech specs for the device, but I tracked down the original Kickstarter campaign and learned that the charger’s battery has 2600mAh capacity and provides 5V at 1A charging power; you’ll need to keep this in mind when you decide to charge power-hungry tablets. BiteMyApple says the built-in LED flashlight is “5X brighter than traditional flashlights and precisely focused with a crisp, even light”; tech specs says it produces 250 lumens. The ChargeLight sells for $99.99 and starts shipping in September. (Just a note: BiteMyApple sells only successfully-funded Kickstarter products, so this item is not still in a funding phase. And I assume that the tech specs specified in the Kickstarter campaign are still true of the funded product.)
