Fire Starter Flashlight

Fire Starter Flashlight

“This is a 12V bulb which is being overdriven to 14+V, to about 140 watts, with an estimated light output of about 4000 lumens. Compare that to a regular 2D MagLight, which is much, much less than 50 lumens.”

Yup, that’s 12 1.2V NiMH batteries in there, which I guess means it’s rechargable too. I love it.

    Color me clueless, but I’m not sure I understand the purpose. Is it a fire-starter? If so, a 2500 mAh NiMH AA cell and some steel wool is cheaper, lighter, and more efficient. Or is it simply to make a flashlight that’s blindingly bright?
