limited production :: hand crafted :: high performance :: rechargeable :: premium flashlights

This is my blog about creating a startup LED flashlight business. I'm a designer, fabricator, and strategist and I'm passionate about making ideas real. I believe that products are about people, that they should be built to last, deliver real value, and that we need to do a better job than we have in the recent past.

Most of my career has been contract or freelance work and I've crafted products and strategies for both big international companies and startups. I also used to work in the "industry" fabricating special effects for film and TV, along with the occasional hot rod. Bottom line, I love making things.

I'm starting this blog so you can follow along, from day one, and see what it's like to start a business, or fail in the process. Only time will tell, but I hope you find this interesting enough to stay tuned, comment, link, like, tweet, and (most importantly) participate in turning this idea into something tangible and valuable.

Price Drop: Brunton Solaris2 USB Panel

Hey all. I have not been selling any of these USB solar panels. I'm not sure if that's because you don't need them or because the price is too high. Yes, it's a little expensive, but what exactly is an unlimited source of USB power worth? I'd say at least $149.00 (MSRP $180.00).

Check out my blog post about speding 10 days in the
Utah back country with two Alphas and a Brunton Solaris
If you spend any amount of time away from a wall outlet this thing is a terrific deal. I've dropped the price down to the lowest price that my contract with Brunton allows. I was hoping to get a little extra since I'm a small company and will never move a ton of these things. However, selling a few is better than none :) I feel bad for my inventory, just sitting on the shelf and not living out its true potential.

Please be advised. You can search the internet and find these for less money. However, anyone selling for less than $149.00 is violating their dealer's agreement with Brunton and they mess up the market for all of us honest folks.
