The History of...the flashlight
For those of us to have to deal with Daylight Savings Time, we all know too well that's it's on it's way. The days are getting shorter and our rides home from work are getting darker. The winter months are dark and can be dangerous if you don't take the proper precautions.
If you haven't already it's time to start stocking up on batteries and making sure all your flashlights and other emergency items are ready to go in case of a snow or ice storm. Promotional flashlights are a great winter promotion. 4AllPromos carries all kinds of flashlights-small ones, large ones and even ones that crank up for short bursts of light during a storm or in case all else fails.
A flashlight is probably one of those gadgets we all keep in our junk drawers and take advantage of only a few times a year. However, when disaster strikes it can be one our most useful tools.
The flashlight, believe, it or not was invented around 1896 when the dry cell battery was first invented. However, the first patent wasn't put on the gadget until 1899 by the American Electrical Novelty and Manufacturing Company and English inventor, David Misell. Since those days the flashlight has taken on many shapes and forms and 4AllPromos carries most of those designs. You can carry a flashlight on a keychain, in your pocket or keep a large flood light in your garage or car trunk in case of emergencies.
