Video: An Easy-to-Mount, Six-Mode Modular Flashlight

21 September 2018

The number of flashlight Kickstarter products have been growing. Projects include a fully solar-powered flashlight, one made specifically for camping and hiking, a powerful flashlight the size of a keychain and even one that starts as a lantern and can then be squished down into a flashlight.

Now, available on Kickstarter is the DanForce G1 Pro, a modular customizable flashlight that adapts to any lighting situation with six modes of operation (high, medium, low, SOS and strobe mode).
