ThinkGeek.com is featuring a battery-free flashlight, and thank God. I dont know how I survived the New York blackout without one (well, okay, my roommate had a game boy). But nevertheless, if my flashlight hadnt run out of batteries, I could have checked on my elderly neighbor without a head-on door collision and a serious flesh wound from her startled terrier. Bite marks aside, The Forever Flashlight is just what everyone needs. After a 30-second shake, it gives out light for up to 5 minutes. Plus, its waterproof and even floats. It can last thousands of hours and is a totally green product (it even uses LED). Did I mention its only $25 bucks?
