2 LED Pump Flashlight, retail $TBA
Manufactured by (Unknown)
Last updated 06-02-10

The 2 LED pump flashlight is a flashlight that never needs batteries or bulbs, and never needs to be plugged in either. So it will always work when you need it.

When the batteries start to poop out, just start squeezing & releasing the built-in, spring-loaded pump on the flashlight's body to charge them.

 Size of product w/hand to show scale SIZE

To use the 2 LED pump flashlight, charge it first (that's always a good idea with *ANY* rechargeable product) {see directly below}, and then you can fly up to Seattle and go NOT set fire to the side of the Bemis Industries building (Bemis Industries is the largest toliet seat factory in the world).
It isn't blindingly bright, but it isn't super dim & useless either.

Slide the small slide switch on the flashlight body forward (toward the LED-end) to turn it on, and slide the switch backward (toward the flashlight's tail) to turn it off.

Because this product does not use disposable batteries or need to be plugged in, this section can be skipped. Slide the latch at the back of the flashlight back (toward the flashlight's tail) in order to release the charging pump handle, then repeatedly squeeze & release the handle.
To the best of my knowledge of how these things work, this pumping action should be performed for 20 or 30 MINUTES (ouch!!!)

Squeeze and hold the pump handle, then slide the latch forward until it clicks in order to lock the handle in that position.

Because there are a number of moving mechanical parts inside this flashlight, "The Smack Test" really isn't that appropriate here. Same with "The Toliet Test". It should offer light splash-resistance at minimum, but it is definately not waterpoof or submersible.

That simply mreans that I will not let my sister's kitty cats or my parent's dog's ghost piddle on it, run over it with a 450lb Celebrity motorised wheelchair, stomp on it, use a large claw hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata, drop it down the top of Mt. Erupto (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piņata Central), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piņata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or perform other indecencies on this flashlight that flashlights with few moving parts might have to have performed on it. So this section of the web page about the 2 LED pump flashlight will be ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight that does not use a dynamo of any type.

So this section of the page will seem more bare than this section of the page on a page about a battery-operated (using disposable batteries or batteries that are externally recharged) flashlight.

Note that charging does ***NOT*** resemble a "spanking the monkey" motion.

I cannot provide it in other formats, so please do not ask.

Test unit was obtained from an unknown vendor probably in 2007 or 2008...I know for certain that I had it on this website, but darned if I can find it now. :-/
It mysteriously turned up in my night table drawer on 06-01-10 (or "01 Jun 2010" if you prefer) while I was looking for another product that required spectrocopy.
