Everlast Flashlight

By Deane Barker on February 16, 2005

Untitled Document: I saw an ad for this on TV. LED light and self-generated power. Not bad. Now if they only thought to add a TITLE tag to their home page.

The EverLife Flashlight uses no batteries or bulbs. Instead it uses your energy and Induction to produce a bright light using efficient LED technology. Just shake the light for about 30 seconds and the EverLife Flashlight will provide about 5 minutes of light. During prolonged use it can be shaken for 10-15 seconds every 2 or 3 minutes giving you an unlimited supply of light.

  1. I got a similar one for Christmas this past year. It has a crank handle that you open and then turn for a few seconds to a minute. I believe they were saying you could turn the handle for a minute and get an hour of light. And it has three LEDs so by clicking the ON/OFF switch multiple times, it will change the number of LEDs on and thus the intensity of the beam.

    I think harnessing people-power for little things like this makes so much more sense than batteries. How often do you really need to use your flashlight? Not too often, but you end up cycling batteries through it just so that it will be ready when you need it.

    Now, if only there were a way to harness the unlimited energy of little kids (mine are 3, 5, and 7 years old!

  2. Careful where you buy this product from. I placed an order after seeing this product on the TV. I called the number…and they picked up right away. I placed my order…and waited the amount of time they told me to. When I realized I wasn’t charged yet…I tried to call the number. They tell me “We can’t check order status here…you have to call this other number”. I called the other number. They don’t answer until you have let the phone ring for a straight 3 minutes!! And the customer service is horrible! No way to track…no way to contact online..NOTHING. Now I find out that the item is on backorder!! They never mentioned THAT! In addition…they tell me it will take ANOTHER 4-6 weeks before they will SHIP this flashlight. Why have a TV commercial if you don’t have product to ship? All in all…I had to cancel my order. Im not waiting 7 weeks for a flashlight…besides…you can pick them up at the mall and avoid the shipping charge. Best wishes!

  3. Ditto to every thing said by Matt Smith down to the 3 minute wait. I’m still waiting. They said they will ship the first of May. We will see.

  4. I to ordered the flashlight, by phone on 1-27-05. on feb the 20 i called to check on my order and was told it was on back order, it only took me three days of calling before i got to speek to someone.

    On 4-3-05 we received the flashlight:::: Man what a disappointment it was nothing like we thought it would be so i sent it back. Now it is 5-3-05 and i have heard nothing and now i can’t get anyone to answer the phone when i call.

  5. There is absolutely no customer service at all. I ordered this flashlight over a month ago and I am unable to check on my status or get any customer service. When you call it just rings and rings. If you call after hours this answering machine picks up so for all we know, this could be someone’s house. VERY unprofessional. I suppose I will not have this flashlight before Fathers Day. I hope it is not a peice of junk as I imagine I will have a horrible time returning it and getting money back.

    They have money for commercials, but fo no customer service. Of course you get right through to order. I am also posting a comment on http://www.badbusinessbureau.com

  6. I ordered three flashlights each of a different size. After 2.5 months they shipped the largest one and had a note of the outside of the box stating that the other items will Ship in September. I recieved this notice November -so they want to delay shipment by 10 months? Customer service out of India tells me the second light has shipped already. No word of the third order being even on their books. I asked for an RMA # to return the product – we’ll see.
