A flashlight without batteries. The Lightstorm SL1 uses a premium ultra-capacitor instead. Since capacitors have no finite lifetime, what this means to you is that this flashlight will always work.
AIT is a pioneer in the application of super capacitors to consumer products. Unlike rechargeable batteries, a capacitor has an incredibly long lifetime, typically measured in decades. AIT has developed special circuitry that enables a capacitor to perform like a battery, but with the advantages of wide operating temperatures and zero corrosion.
Get your SL1 for camping, household emergency, or just because you recognize a better way of doing things when you see them.
A better flashlight concept
A flashlight, a lantern, and more! The LightStorm SL1 dynamo LED light is truly unique. With the fold out handle it can be held and used as a flashlight. With the fold out hook it can be hung and used as a lantern. And with it’s magnetic feet, the LightStorm SL1 dynamo LED light can be attached to car hoods and tool boxes serving as a work light or emergency beacon. The SL1 dynamo LED light features two different flood light settings. It also features red StarCore LEDs that flash once per second, enabling LightStorm SL1 to be used as a warning indicator at accident scenes and as a signaling device in emergency situations.
The LightStorm SL1 also has a built-in power jack and comes with a charging cable and Mini USB connector for charging music players, Blackberries, and Motorola V3 / V6 cell phones (other cell phone connectors can be bought separately). And like all LightStorm dynamo LED flashlights, SL1 uses a Carbon Ultra-Capacitor to store energy, which means that it will never need batteries and can be counted on to work over the long haul even when subjected to harsh environments.

The LightStorm SL1 Flashlight Difference…
The LightStorm SL1 uses a Carbon Ultra-Capacitor to store energy – not rechargeable batteries. This feature distinguishes LightStorm LED flashlights from all other crank flashlights – LightStorm flashlights will provide years of unfailing illumination – all other wind up torch lights will soon end up in landfills when their non-replaceable batteries fail to work. With Carbon Ultra-Capacitors, LightStorm flashlights can operate in hot and cold environments and can be recharged over a hundred thousand times. And unlike batteries, Carbon Ultra-Capacitors will never corrode.
Each LightStorm SL1 wind up torch uses a brushless dynamo generator that efficiently converts mechanical energy into electrical energy without suffering wear and fatigue.
The SL1 is built from state-of-the-art components and is ruggedly constructed in an ABS housing to resistant motor oil and diesel fuel.
Without a doubt, LightStorm crank flashlights surpass all others in performance and versatility.
