The ‘flashlight’ derived its name from the first ones invented in 1898, constructed from paper and fiber tubes - the batteries were weak and the bulbs primitive, flashlight of the era produced only a brief flash of light. 1916: “ the light that does not flicker in draught, extinquish in wind, and is controlled instantly by finger pressure. its the light everyone needs.” This is based off the classic 1950s model. Iconic, beatiful & functional. You can buy a flashlight today that is waterproof, glows in the dark, and weighs less than your wallet, but it would’nt be nearly as cool as the original 50s chrome classic. Steel body with a chrome finish, takes an incandescent clear bulb and 2 D batteries (not included)
