‘Lightsaber’ Flashlight Starts Fire, Cooks Eggs
If James Bond or Darth Vader needed a flashlight, this would be it.
With up to 2,300 lumens and a “high-efficiency reflector,” Wicked Lasers’ Flash Torch Mini halogen light actually creates enough heat to start a fire. It’s literally hot enough to cook eggs, observe it in action.

The Mini may well be one of the most awesome and terrifying camping accessories we’ve seen. It’s the latest iteration of the company’s old 4,100-lumen, foot-long Flash Torch.
The new Mini packs a mighty wallop into 8.5 inches and 13.5 ounces.
It’s worth noting that this isn’t the only flashlight that can start a fire. Nor is it the brightest, or most high-tech. The halogen bulb is less efficient than modern LEDs, which generate far less heat. The heat created by the Mini is, in cases when you just want to see in the dark, wasted energy.
But for frying an egg, it’s pretty rad.
Flash Torch Mini: NOT A TOY
At full power, the Flash Torch Mini burns hot enough to instantly melt plastic. Charming!
We know; no matter what we say, those of you who shell out $200 for one of these will immediately start lighting things on fire. Wicked Lasers knows this, too. That’s why the company equipped the Mini with a “smart switch” that prevents the lightsabe–err, flashlight, from “unauthorized use.”
Translation: this thing won’t accidentally bump “on” during a hike and cause a cataclysmic Bambi fire.

That said, PLEASE BE CAREFUL. The Mini is no toy. This thing is so crazy, in fact, Wicked Lasers goes so far as to post on the website that the Mini is “100 percent legal.”
The rechargeable Flash Torch Mini retails on the Wicked Lasers website for $200. It also has non-scorching modes so you can navigate in low light without starting a brushfire.

Of course, we’d love to see this thing in action. You know, for official testing purposes. And the Star Wars noises? Those are for testing purposes also.
