There has been lots of different flashlights released over the years. Some big, small, LED, non-LED, however today we bring to you a Cute Little LED Flashlight that clips onto a battery. This handy gadget indicates how simple a flashlight really is. If you are interested in designing a flashlight by yourself all you need is the following:
- A bulb or a few LEDs (if you are interested in making a LED flashlight)
- A power source
- A switch
You also need the connecting wires which will go between the components to connect them.
The Cute Little LED flashlight is not going to provide a strong beam of light, however it will provide enough light to carry out quick simple tasks when you are in stuck in complete darkness.
The actual size of that flashlight is only about one third of the size of a 9V battery which is used to power it. You only need to clip the LED flashlight on to the battery and then press the appropriate power button. This may not be a subversive product, but it is still pretty neat enough, especially at only $7.50.

Smoke alarms are basically designed to alert and to wake up all the people in a building that a fire has broken out in. They may also be helpful in alerting people when their much loved and yummy chocolate chip cookies are burning. Either way they are designed to warn people of the danger i.e a fire and allow them, to escape hopefully without anyone losing their lives.
But this Firetext Smoke Alarm goes one step further. It features a slot for SIM card and when it observes smoke in its range it will send an SMS message for up to 4 different numbers. I assume that it’s meant as a useful way to alert the people in an emergency situation when they are away from the building where the Firetext Smoke Alarm detector is present. As opposed to rendering a more efficient way to alert our generation of a fire, who looks to have produced a knee-jerk ‘gotta check it right away!’ response to their mobiles ‘new text message’ alert.
Firetext Smoke Alarm is still powered by a standard 9V battery, which is pretty good for about 36 activations. But in the event that it will never goes off, on a single battery it should stay active for about 5 years. The Firetext Smoke Alarm is available now for about $144 i.e £89.99 plus the cost of your SIM card and your local carrier’s SMS service I presume.
