What's everyone's favorite Swiss Army Flashlight?

I'm looking at the web page for the Vector VEC130 Sports TV / Lantern . This tries hard:

Are there more complete examples that are still on-hand portable and battery powered?

I hesitate to post it unless knowledgeable senior members feel it's OK.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I have a copy of the picture and it is funny, but too much of it is PhotoShop to count here. Moreover most of the stuff was useful on a flashlight, unlike the siren or mosquito repellant above.

I never went back to see why it was controversial. I guess that some people don't realize flashlights are mounted on guns when needed.
