Secūr Auto Emergency Tool & LED Flashlight
Price: $29.99, less than $20 on Amazon at time of publication
We’ve all seen the stories on the news: a vehicle is stranded and can’t signal for help; there’s a car accident and the driver is trapped in his car because the seat belt won’t unbuckle or he can’t break the glass to get out. The Secūr Auto Emergency Tool & LED Flashlight can help with those scenarios.
The Secūr Auto Emergency Tool & LED Flashlight is a flashlight-warning beacon-seatbelt cutter-window breaking tool all in one small package. It also claims to charge cell phones, which I’ll discuss at the end. No batteries are needed; it charges strictly by hand crank. The flashlight charges very quickly: one minute of cranking gives 40 minutes of light, and holds a charge for days. There are three magnets that secure the tool on a car so other drivers can see the flashing red light.

iFlash LED Flashlight
Gadgets and Gear
When Apple launched the iPhone 4 with an LED light, I was envious as that feature was lacking on my iPhone 3GS. Photographs on my iPhone 3GS were often dark and unsalvageable. That problem is no longer applicable thanks to a nifty LED device by Gadgets and Gear.
The iFlash is a small (.75″ W x 1.75″ L) LED light that can be used for a flashlight or as a flash for the iDevices. It is compatible with the iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, iPod Nano 3, 4, 5, iTouch 1, 2, 3, 4, and the iPad 1 and 2. The device does not require batteries as it derives its power from the iDevice. It did not drain my iPhone battery substantially. The iFlash contains a tiny, high efficiency capacitor to protect against a power overload.
