I Really Want This to Fund

If you've been reading this blog for any length of time, you know that I'm a big fan nifty gadgets. As a prepper I'm also a fan of items with multiple uses as those save space as weight.

Well, the item I'm going to talk about now is both multi-use and a nifty gadget: the Mule Light V2.

So why should you back this Kickstarter? Two reasons.

The Mule v2 does everything I need a flashlight to do. 
  • It has a high beam, a low beam, and a strobe. 
  • Need a broad light while you're working on something? It does that. 
  • Need a bright (300 lumen) spotlight that doesn't ruin your night vision? It does that, too. 
  • Need a black light for tracking blood. finding stains, or charging glow in the dark things without (again) ruining your night vision? It even does that. 

It has excellent battery life.
  • If you get The Works you have two choices of battery:
    • AAA batteries, which are easy to find but don't last as long, or
    • Rechargeable Li-Ion battery. Pair that with any basic solar panel or dynamo and you have a way to recharge your flashlight during the day. 
  • Use of hybrid mode -- where a three-second burst of light charges a glowstick -- extends both battery life and illumination capability to incredible levels (240 hours of use with AAA, 540 hours with Li-Ion).

I acknowledge that, at $65, it's rather spendy. But given all that it does, and its long battery life and ability to be recharged in the wild and this is a very useful and versatile piece of kit. I feel safe saying that because I've bought and used UVPaqLite products in the past, and they have never disappointed me.

I really want this project to fund, so if you're at all interested, please pledge within the week. We're about $33,000 shy of fully funding with only 7 more days to go.
