mPower Technolgies, Inc. will debut a flashlight with a shelf life of 20 years: the mPower Emergency Illuminator.

The idea came about when a technology company executive found himself changing a flat tire in the dark, as his flashlight battery was dead. He was then inspired to create a flashlight that would never let him down.

His company, mPhase technologies, happened to be working on an extended battery technology for defense and computer purposes, but he saw how it could be useful for all consumers.

mPhase Technologies has since partnered with the Porsche Design Studio to fashion a sleek flashlight with the added ability to power devices through a USB connection.
