OK, call me weird (but not too loudly) but I really am intrigued by the new breed of high intensity LED torches (sigh – flashlights) coming on to the market in droves at the moment. The EliteXRay seems to be one of the best around, offering a 4 LED powered beam, 700 hours of battery life from 3 AA cells, and a light that can be seen…er…3 miles away. Mind you it does cost $80.00.
For more info on these LEC products check out this massive listing of LED manufacturers. Personally I’m really quite tempted by this $28.00 Opalec NewBeam module which will update my ageing but nice AA Maglite to LED goodness. Sad muppet, me!
