 |  |  |  |  |  March 16, 2016


We all know the trusty old matchbook. Whether you use it for smoking or camping, matchbooks have been around forever. They are pretty handy. How about a matchbook full of tiny flashlights? That’s what MBI Matchlights are all about. They are a pretty great idea.

This matchbook replaces matchsticks with tiny flashlights that you can use for emergency lighting, whenever the need strikes. Pun intended. Maybe you need to find a tiny screw that rolled under the sofa. These are perfect for situations like that. Or any other emergency. And they won’t burn your fingers. Each MBI Matchlight comes with eight tiny disposable flashlights. Each can run for up to eight hours. The whole set will give you 64 hours of light. Just press the flashlight tip on a hard surface similar to striking a match, another press switches it off.

They are waterproof and have a magnet on the base for attaching to metallic surfaces. These are every bit as handy as matches and they last longer. Its makers are currently seeking funding on Indiegogo, where you can grab a set for $32(USD).
