I have recently heard several stories about people losing their flashlights (some very expensive) by accidentally dropping them in to the water when they were either fishing or doing something similar that involved being around deep water, and in fact there is even a very recent thread in this forum about this very same situation. Anyway after reading through it I had remembered all of a sudden about a mini automatic flotation device that I had previously seen on television (here), and that not only lit up and was visible from a distance of up to 250 meters (820 feet to all you imperial guys/gals) but it was also capable of lifting any items that were up to one kilogram (2.2 pounds) in weight. Now whilst I do realise that it may not be the most fashionable item to be attaching to your favourite beloved flashlight, I also thought that under certain circumstances it might just be considered extremely appropriate, mainly due to it's rather low cost when compared to the relatively high cost of the item that it may be saving at the time.
Just as I have said in the thread title it may have been a really stupid idea of mine just to even mention it here, however by doing so I thought that I may be able to get some form of feedback on the idea, or at the very least I would be able to make some people actually aware of it's existence. Well I am just about to hit the "Submit New Thread" button and from which point there is no going back, so I am now fully prepared for any ridicule however any positive feedback would be very good as well, so please tell me what you think!
P.S. Only naturally it can also be used for potentially saving many other items as well, and NO I am not affiliated with this product in any way shape or form!
