During outdoor adventures, flights over remote areas, or in any emergency survival situation, there are two pieces of equipment that you never want to be without, a flashlight and a firestarter. These two items have been combined into one lightweight, compact, powerhouse of a product called the Solo Scientific ion Flashlight Firestarter.
The Solo Scientific ion Flashlight Firestarter is a flashlight, a
firestarter, a magnetic tool, has a safety mechanism, is knurled for grip, waterproof, shock-resistant, and can even be used to cauterize wounds in the field (by qualified medical personnel only). The energy efficient ion Flashlight Firestarter will work in any environment that will support life and uses a super bright white LED for illumination. The flashlight feature of the ion Flashlight Firestarter will provide maximum illumination for 48 continuous hours on one set of batteries. You could leave your ion Flashlight Firestarter on for more than a full work week on set of batteries. Now that's efficiency. For technical reasons beyond the scope of this text, the intensity of the light remains at maximum throughout the entire 48 hours and finally begins to fade from there yielding several more hours of sub-maximum illumination. The life expectancy of the super bright white LED is 50,000 hours. If you burn it out send your unit to Solo Scientific and they will replace it free.
The electronically heated firestarting element of the ion Flashlight Firestarter in non-consumable; waterproof, requires on physical effort, is silent, reaches a temperature of 1,250 degrees F, can be used to cauterize wounds in the field (by qualified medical personnel), and is designed to last a life time. It is also self cleaning and unbreakable. The ion Flashlight Firestarter's red hot integrated electrically heated firestarter will ignite combustible materials enabling you to start your campfire anytime, anywhere. You can ignite hundreds of fires on one set of batteries. Using the ion Flashlight Firestarter's integrated firestarter you can ignite everything from cotton balls, toilet paper, and milk weed fluff to dry leaves, burdock, and birch bark shavings.
The firestarting element is also protected by a (knurled-for-grip) removable protective cap that includes a super strong neodymium magnetic insert at the tip that can be used to magnetize metal objects to fashion a crude compass in the field. In addition, to prevent loss of the protective cap during use of the firestarter portion of the ion Flashlight Firestarter, the firestarting element protective cap can be magnetically attached to the base of the ion Flashlight Firestarter (also fitted with a super strong neodymium magnetic insert). Either end of the ion Flashlight Firestarter can be used as a magnetic tool to retrieve dropped metal objects and you can even illuminated the area while using the magnetic tip to help find your lost object(s).
