Dock-able, rechargeable, & portable LED flashlight & battery pack for any USB device including iPhone, iPad & Android.

Our Kickstarter campaign is over, but you can still get a ChargeLight. Visit chargelight.com to place an order.

Why You'll Want ChargeLight.

ChargeLight could be the most powerful and compact LED flashlight and battery pack ever. Smartphones, cameras, and flashlights need to stay charged at all times, so we can use them when we need them. Staying on top of power-hungry devices demands a product that is both lightweight and portable to tote wherever we go. With a beautiful design that suits any decor, ChargeLight is the most universal, practical, and essential product you may ever own.

Always stay charged.

We know how hard it is to keep all of your devices charged. We were tired of dead batteries, too. Keep life's essential tools ready to go. ChargeLight can charge just about anything – a smartphone, tablet, camera, GPS, music player, and much, much more.

Ultra compact and lightweight, it goes where you go.

Beautifully powerful.

A light worthy of being called tactical. It’s so powerful, it rivals tactical-grade LED flashlights, while maintaining a strikingly sleek design. With precision optics, it produces an unparalleled lighting experience. ChargeLight is 5X brighter than traditional flashlights and precisely focused with a crisp, even light.

Make nighttime look like daytime.

Delightfully portable.

Keep it charged any number of ways. We know how demanding life can be, so we wanted charging flexibility. ChargeLight can be recharged from its dock, USB adapter, laptop, car charger, or any other USB port. Plus it fits in a purse, coat pocket, briefcase, or backpack. It’s delightfully portable.

Being portable is about being prepared.

Stunning performance.

ChargeLight outperforms alkaline flashlights 10:1 times 3000. With its lithium-ion technology, it outperforms alkaline-based flashlights over 30,000 times. It’s 100% rechargeable, and it holds a charge for more than one year. ChargeLight can also sustain thousands of charges, so it doesn’t waste thousands of alkaline batteries.

We didn't think flashlights mattered either.

Rechargeable dock.

Keep everything charged from one location. What truly makes ChargeLight unique is its rechargeable dock. We know how easy it is to forget to charge your devices, so we made a beautiful and convenient dock that acts as one central hub to ensure you stay charged at all times.

Keeping all your devices charged has never been easier.

Fits anywhere.

Perfect for any lifestyle or room. Most high-powered tactical flashlights are big and look rugged. Not ChargeLight. It’s one of the sleekest, most compact flashlights ever. And it works beautifully in any room – in your kitchen, bedroom, office, or living room.

You''ll want one for every room.

Our Manufacturing Plan

We have already done a lot of work to get ChargeLight where it is today. We have created the tooling, PCBA design, software, and life testing, as well as, multiple rounds of prototypes. Because we tend to pay attention to every detail, we continue to make small, incremental changes after each prototype. We will make several more prototypes before we head into our Pilot Run, and eventually, our Mass Production Run. Here is a breakdown of what we have accomplished and what we still need to do:

Prior to Kickstarter:

  • Due diligence of component and material selection 
  • Create a functional requirements document for engineering 
  • Designed ChargeLight; PCBA, Optical Len, Safety Electronics, 3D Modeling of Enclosure and Dock 
  • Fabrication of prototypes 
  • Detailed product life testing for reliability, durability and performance 
  • Tooling and design modifications 
  • Fixed tooling designs and release for fabrication 
  • Pre-qualified (pre-scan) ChargeLight for FCC, CE, RoHS, WEEE, CTICK, and PSE Safety Approvals (passed)

During Kickstarter:

  • Continue to make small, incremental changes to ensure maximum performance 
  • Procure pilot run raw materials 
  • Create pilot run and mass production manufacturing plan 
  • Test and evaluate Pilot Run prototypes before approval to Mass Production 
  • Approve Mass Production 
  • Procure Mass Production raw materials 
  • Confirm Mass Production plan 
  • Produce initial manufacturing order  
  • Receive final certifications for FCC, CE, RoHS, WEEE, CTICK, and PSE Safety Approvals

Summary: We understand that product development and supply chain issues can be challenging. But with over 65 years of operations, manufacturing, sourcing, and product development experience, we are confident we will delivery ChargeLight to you on-time.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

With any project, there will be both risks and challenges. However, with more than 65 years of combined sourcing and manufacturing experience, we have the resources in place to ensure on-time delivery.

We’ve already completed multiple rounds of prototypes, making final tweaks, life testing for reliability, and fine-tuning final modifications, such as software debugging, removal of unwanted tooling marks, and adjustments to the optical lens.

Here is a list of potential challenges we could face:

(1) We have already pre-qualified ChargeLight for multiple product safety and environmental marks. But there is always the possibility that the final evaluation might require us to make some small modifications, thus delaying shipment slightly.

(2) Because of the increase in security for inboard international freight, there could be a slight delay, potentially one to two weeks, if our inbound production units are tagged for a customs exam or a U.S. port unexpectedly goes on strike.

(3) Some of the images and photographs in our video and on our Kickstarter page are based on pre-production prototypes, which may change in actual color at the time of mass production.

(4) We are still working on different ways to maximize the LED brightness without increasing the operating temperature. So our final lumens rating may change.

Nonetheless, we will keep our backers informed every step of the way. If we see any potential delays, we will let you know immediately and provide you with a corrective action. We promise.
