1000 Lumens, small enough to carry on your keychain. Even if that was all that this flashlight project was, I’d still back it for $120. I flipping love flashlights.
However, this is a lot more than that (if you can ignore all the Tom Cruise swooning).
Helioslight is a programming flashlight. You can change its brightness at any time from 1 to 100 per cent. The flashlight has a favorite mode, and several extra features.
Helioslight has red light indicator that flickers once in 5 seconds that helps don’t lose the flashlight with keys in dark.
Battery Stretch Function. The output is reduced to 10% at 10% of the battery. So it lets the remaining 10% of battery to last 10 times longer.
Basically this is a flashlight which is bright, extremely well engineered, and stupid-human-proof or as much as a flashlight can be. Pretty neat. I’m in for $120, it’s already funded, but still…
Update: Looks like greed has killed this project.
Serge, an owner of company Lux-RC, decided to refuse to sell his light engine module to us when he learnt about our project on kickstarter. At the beginning there were no conditions of using his light engine module from his side. We found out, he promotes his modules in premium segment, and after he discovered we want to make an inexpensive flashlight, he changed his mind and refused to provide us with his module.
