Flashlight That Can Set Fire or Melt Plastics

This is wicked cool!

The Torch (click here for Engadget article) flashlight is now the world's brightest and most powerful flashlight. The Flashlight is capable of melting plastic, lighting paper on fire within seconds, and if you like, fry an egg or a marshmallow on a stick. At 4100 lumens, The Torch is 100 lumens more powerful than The Polarion Helios, the former most powerful flashlight, and retails for around $300. The Torch is apparently also undergoing review at the Guinness Book of World Records. It's wicked cool but the battery life is down to 15 minutes of use. Hello techno-geeks, time to design a better battery.
