Every year, Americans buy and discard 3,000,000,000 batteries-which contain toxic metals like mercury, cadmium and nickel that get into our waterstream and do naughty things to Mother Earth. Here’s an eco-option to battery-powered flashlights. This lightweight, durable hybrid combines power from built-in solar panel along with rechargeable batteries, providing up to 16 hours straight of light (if you’re say, camping in Iceland) and keeping at least a few batteries out of our landfills.

    The only problem is that there might be a prolonged period of darkness after the apocalypse. What then? I’m sticking with the shake variety.

    After the apocalypse YOU, Kev, will also become part of the 'shake variety' and will in any event glow in the dark long after you stop shaking.
