BugLit a super versatile flashlight

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

While it may appear to be along the lines of a cute toy, the BugLit is actually a hands-free flashlight that gives versatility a whole new meaning. The body is made from the INOVA Microlight—a tough mini flashlight that is encased in a durable polycarbonate plastic housing. It has been built to last and will stand strong against the abuse of the elements. Its moldable, flexible legs are made from Nite Ize's Gear Ties and reach to six inches. Twist them, wrap them, or stand them out straight to create the perfect angle for lighting up the next big task. Secure the BugLit onto zipper pulls or backpack straps to light up travel guides, maps, or fishing knots when out on the lake in the dark. Wrap them tightly onto handlebars and ride home from class at night while seeing better and feeling a bit safer. Its compact size and numerous uses means there's no excuse for leaving home without it. The BugLit is equipped with a white LED light with high and low power, strobe, and signal functions, and has an effective range of up to 50 feet while still remaining visible for up to a mile away. The legs are composed of a tough rubber shell that creates the perfect grip without scratching or marking its resting place. Included with the BugLit is a size 0 S-Biner carabiner clip for even more lighting options.  The BugLit lists for $12.99 and can be bought on-line at   Read Full Story
