|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. They now have been combined into one lightweight, compact, powerhouse of a product
called the ion Flashlight Firestarter™!
Manufactured in the USA by Solo Scientific Inc. the aerospace quality
ion Flashlight Firestarter™ is a quantum leap in flashlight and
The 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).
The energy efficient ion Flashlight Firestarter™ will work in any
environment that will support life and uses an 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. The life
expectancy of the super bright white LED is 50,000 hours.
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 !
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.
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.
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
The ion Flashlight Firestarter™ comes complete with
(2) Energizer Ultimate Lithium Batteries installed, instructions, and
(2) pieces of firestarting material.
