Can You Start a Fire With an LED Flashlight?

If you’re looking for all kinds of different wacky experiments, sinking your teeth into the one who calls himself the Crazy Russian Hacker is definitely one way that you could go about doing such a thing. This guy is all about trying something new, taking different materials and putting them to the test in a variety of ways in order to see exactly what different factors you can combine to get some sort of outcome that may be desirable or helpful in some way, even if it just ends up being for nothing more than your entertainment.

This time, the hacker is taking on the challenge of using a super-powered LED flashlight and setting a fire with it. I don’t think that this one really needs any explanation as to how exactly it could be helpful as it doesn’t take a genius to see how this might be some sort of resource that you could pack up and have on hand just in case you get caught in an area where you’re stranded somewhere, potentially storing it somewhere like the trunk of your car, just in case you should get caught in a bad spot, you have the most useful tools available.

If you follow along down in the video below, you’ll get to learn a little bit more about the difference between certain flashlights and how this one could be particularly useful. After following along with the quick display that shows us all about this display that has to be a pyro’s dream, be sure to tell us what you think of this effort and if you were able to pick up on any information that could be useful and applied to your life somewhere. Sometimes, even with the most random of experiments, you can tend to learn a thing or two.
