magic bulb LED flashlight

the chinese company magic bulb unveiled a new LED light bulb that doubles as a portable flashlight. the bulb design uses an insignificant 4 watts of power to create as much light as a 50W incandescent bulb. while the light can simple screw into any socket in your home, it can also be removed and used as a flashlight. a built-in rechargeable battery provides power to the light, giving it a life span of 3 hours on a full charge. while the battery may run out of juice over time, the light bulb itself is estimated to last for 20,000 hours.

  • What an excellent idea. My experience with LED lights is that they are a little to focused, for general lighting, but something like this, in an easy-to-reach base (desk lamp, say) would make an excellent backup system. Colour me impressed.
