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. We have combined the two into one lightweight, compact, powerhouse of a product called the ion Flashlight Firestarter™!
Our goal this time was to design and manufacture the best all-around survival flashlight firestarter in the world and we have absolutely done it! Created and Manufactured in the USA by Solo Scientific Inc. the aerospace quality ion Flashlight Firestarter™ is a quantum leap in flashlight and firestarter technologies - see demonstration video at left! Also, click on image above to enlarge (back arrow to return to our web sit).
Our ion Flashlight Firestarter™ is a flashlight, a firestarter, a magnetic tool, has a safety mechanism, is knurled for grip, water proof, shock resistant, and can even be used to cauterize wounds in the field (by qualified medical personnel only).
Our energy efficient ion Flashlight Firestarter™ will work in any environment that will support life and uses a super bright (but energy efficient) 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 one 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 us your unit and we will replace it for free !
The electrically heated firestarting element of the ion Flashlight Firestarter™ is non-consumable; water proof, requires no physical effort, is silent, reaches a temperature of 1250 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 Firstarters'™ 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 (1) set of batteries! Using the ion Flashlight Firestarters'™ integrated firestarter you can ignite everything from char cloth, 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 illuminate the area while using the magnetic tip to help find your lost object(s).
The ion Flashlight Firestarter™ is powered by (2) Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA Batteries (included). These batteries have a storage life of 15 years at 70F and will retain 90 percent of their charge after being stored for 15 years ! You may also purchase extra batteries on this web site or they can be purchased in nearly all retail stores that sell batteries.
The ion Flashlight Firestarter™ also has an integrated rotating switching mechanism that automatically turns off the LED lamp when using the firestarter feature. This makes it possible to direct all electrical energy to the electrically heated firestarting element while in use. The ion Flashlight Firestarter™ also includes safety and reference channels that are permanently machined into the housing that are used as both visual and tactile references during operation. The safety and reference channels are also used to house an onboard safety clip that prevents accidental operation of the ion Flashlight Firestarter™ during storage or transport in backpacks or other stowing containers.
The ion Flashlight Firestarter™ is machined from solid lightweight aircraft aluminum, has (3)o-ring seals making it completely water proof, is only 7.25" (18.42cm)long, and weighs only 4.64 oz (131.54g) with batteries installed.
The ion Flashlight Firestarter™ comes complete with (2) Energizer Ultimate Lithium Batteries installed, instructions, and (2) pieces of firestarting material.
