One of my favorite features of the HydraLight is that it can be used as a flashlight or a lantern. Just extend the top and set it down on a flat surface, and you can use the HydraLight hands-free! Now, the HydraLight won’t last forever (the fuel cell is good for about 100 continuous hours on a single charge and should be able to handle 3 charges), but it’s very handy to have around for those times when you can’t use a traditional flashlight. Take it camping or use it around the house. If you’re a parent, this is a really cool item to show the kids. They’ll be amazed that you can make the flashlight work with water!
