I haven’t missed a day on this blog since I started adding to it regularly on weekdays last November. I came close yesterday because I just forgot. But I’m burning out. I planned on working on a new format to help with that but it’s still under construction. I felt like I had a lot to say, but that’s just not true every day.
A few weeks back I asked if ultracapacitors would change everything. 5.11 Tactical seems to have answered the question. Now, I know I have a thing about flashlights. I can’t explain it, I just love flashlights. I carry 2 in my laptop bag. I particularly love tactical flashlights. Not because they are tactical (seriously, I don’t even watch 24) but because they are better. And that was before the 5.11 Light For Life. This thing really does change everything.
- In just 90 seconds, your Light for Life™ UC3.400™ will be fully charged and ready to produce another 90 minutes of light.
- The Light for Life™ contains no batteries, but rather a proprietary energy management system that utilizes revolutionary ultracapacitors and computer circuitry.
- The system is rated for 50,000 charge/discharge cycles (one a day for more than 135 years.)
- 3 LEDs rated for more than 50,000 hours (that would be 40 hours a week for more than 24 years)
The battery is dead. Long live the ultracapacitor.
