This cute pig-shaped manually rechargeable flashlight may look kinda weird but it sure comes in handy when nasty weather cuts off your power.
I own one of these piggy flashlights and it's performed admirably through more than a few long power outages. Resplendent in pastel pink with a magenta snout, this novel and nifty emergency flashlight from Domire never needs batteries and has just one moving part: a manually-operated squeeze crank.
To charge up the flashlight, just slide a switch on its side to release the squared-off crank. Then start squeezing and releasing, much like one of those spring-loaded hand exerciser thingies. By the time you're tired, the flashlight is fully charged and you've burnt off a bunch of calories. Win and win!
A pair of LED bulbs secreted in each round nostril are activated by sliding a small switch on the device's side. The bulbs shine with a very bright, blue-white light typical of modern LEDs.
The Rechargeable Hand-Pressure LED Piggy Flashlight measures 106mm x 51mm × 44mm (about 4 by 2 by 2 inches) and weighs 63g, or just over 2 ounces. It includes a handy-dandy fabric carrying strap attached to its hind end. Last but not least, you won't pay through the nose for a swine that shoots light out of its snout – just $7.49 with free shipping. View more details at Domire's Amazon.com product page.
