A perfect gift for the dad who loves gadgets that actually have a practical application.
Flashlights are becoming more and more sophisticated, as well as rather expensive. Case in point: the upcoming mPower Emergency Illuminator, which made its press debut this week at an event in New York. Designed by the Porsche Design Studio to be “a stylish product with emergency utility, it will cost somewhere between $250 and $300 when it comes out in March of 2010. Aside from the fetching design, the mPower Emergency Illuminator boasts some innovative battery technology. One battery “tube” stores two CR123 batteries, while the other has what’s called an OnCommand Reserve Battery that the company says has a minimum 20-year shelf life and will deliver “power on command when and where you need it.” – From CNET
