Vancouver-based mechanical engineer Ronald Chan, however, is hoping that his Function Flashlight will become the one and only go-to portable light source for its owners.  Read More

The Trioh! features a built-in rechargeable Lithium Ion battery

It’s a scenario many of us are familiar with: the power goes out and the sole flashlight kept at the bottom of the kitchen drawer has either disappeared, or else been harvested for batteries, leading to much fumbling around in the dark.
