What is the "Faraday Principle of Electromagnetic Energy" and how does the Forever Flashlight use it?
The Forever Flashlight uses the Faraday Principle of Electromagnetic Energy to create the electricity it needs to charge itself. The Faraday Principle describes how a magnetic field can produce electric current in a wire that passes through it. When the Forever Flashlight is shaken sideways, a magnet slides back and forth through a copper wire coil. This action produces electricity which is then stored in a capacitor instead of a battery.
What is a "Capacitor" and why does the Forever Flashlight use one?
A capacitor is a basic electronic component that stores electric charge. A capacitor is used in the Forever Flashlight instead of a battery because of the amount of electrical power generated by the shaking of the flashlight and because it is easily rechargeable. Less power is required by the Forever Flashlight than with normal flashlights. The Forever Flashlight's capacitor holds enough charge for over 5 minutes of bright light without further shaking.
What is an "LED" and why does the Forever Flashlight use one?
An LED, or "Light Emitting Diode" is an electronic component that emits light when an electric current is applied to it. LED's have become very popular for lighting applications over the past few years in everything from street lights to roadway hazard lights. A big reason for their popularity is their efficiency and lifespan. An LED is many times more efficient than a halogen or fluorescent bulb, uses much less power, and lasts for up to 10 years - a perfect match for the design of the Forever Flashlight!
