The Satechi LightMate Emergency LED Flash Light is much more than just a flash light. In fact, Satechi’s only mistake with this flash light is that they didn’t name it something like the Smart Light. This cool gadget has a ton of practical applications. First and foremost, of course, it has a super-bright LED light that’s safe (plastic), long lasting and highly visible. The light has 5 different modes, including bright, medium, dim, SOS and strobe. Secondly, it contains a 2200mAh portable power bank with a USB charging port and cable for emergency cell phone charging. It’s also waterproof and highly durable, with a nice weight to it. Finally, it also has a high-strength pointed alloy steel emergency glassbreaker in case you ever need it. The only situation I can imagine needing it is during a zombie apocalypse and you’re trying to break glass to grab an axe. At least, that’s the scenario I have worked out in my head. Still, the LightMate Emergency Flash Light makes a great gift for campers, travelers or anyone that frequently uses a flash light.
“It has a knife, bottle opener, scissors, Phillips head, flathead screwdriver, nail file, LED light, and a RETRACTABLE BALLPOINT PEN! All in a ridiculously compact form factor. I’m reasonably sure I’ll never have a set of keys without one of these on it ever again.” —axj66
“It’s a classic,” Boghardt says of this 4.5 millimeter single-shot weapon, presumably taken from a KGB agent in the mid-1960s. While it’s unclear whether this dangerous “kiss of death” was ever used, a cyanide pistol was used for assassination in that era. These covert weapons are surviving examples of the “active measures” that were taken in this time period, unlike many of their intended targets.
