    Ditching Batteries for Salt Water: Interesting Article in GizmagLink

    Interesting. My concern would be that I can get batteries readily. Not sure about the replacement rods. Although, I am surrounded by salt water... Next concern would be how to store it after using it over a weekend of camping. Do you wash off the rod? And I couldn't find specs, such as how bright it is.

    Pretty cool though.

    Hi Hanzo,
    Yes it is interesting. Re Brightness, this is not designed as a tactical light. Light output is a balance of power draw to light output. The 16 LED lantern gives 360 degree coverage to table/work area with a comfortable level of light for reading and performing everyday activities or to light your way at night. As for replacement rods, they are a standard consumable to be available online world-wide and in retail stores as it rolls out after the crowdfunding campaign. You are correct, to store after a weekend of camping, you give the EnergyCell and the PowerRods a rinse and simply let them dry in the open air till next use.
