Faradeus is a flashlight, machined from aircraft aluminium. But another thing makes it so special!
Faradeus doesn't need any batteries or external charging. It's power source is inside. Supercapacitor that powers LED is charged by shaking.
Electromagnetic or magnetic induction is the production of an electromotive force (i.e., voltage) across an electrical conductor in a changing magnetic field.
Michael Faraday is generally credited with the discovery of electro magnetic induction in 1831.
His first experiments with copper coils and magnets laid the foundation for studying the nature of electromagnetism.
Our project named in the honour of Michael Faraday and built on the same principle as his invention more then a century ago.
What is cool in 2018 that unlike Faraday we have access to all modern technologies that are few clicks away from us.
Let me explain what's inside. Copper inductor winded on plastic tube, diod bridge and supercap to store energy and LED on the top. Inside tube there is a magnet that travels freely across copper inductor. When this happens significant amount of current is generated and it's enought to power LED.
What do we want to create?
You know, everyone tends to create something that will live even after him. Same story with us.And for sure we want to create something that make one's life more comfortable and safe.
And we think that everlasting flashlight is a good start. Hope you support us in this quest.
- It's bright and clear - you can forget about batteries and charging process. You simply don't need it. Faradeus will be at your service no matter how long it was kept on your shelf. 15 seconds of shaking will give you one minute of decent light. So you can use it almost immediately.
- It's a green technology. Energy in Faradeus is stored in supercapacitor that has guaranteed 100.000 cycles of recharging
- It's usual pocket flashlight eventually. Yep,usual eternal flashlight that will save you during zombie apocalypse ;) At full charge it can provide you with 1 hour of light.
Faradeus isn't among the most powerful flashlights but it'll deliver sufficient amount of light in most situation. And for sure, no worries about batteries ;)
