My buddies over at 5.11 Tactical want to shine some light into the darkness that one of you lucky readers operates in, with an ATAC™ L1 Tactical Flashlight.

The L1 is a powerful compact product with industry leading performance for a single Lithium battery power source.

Powered by (1) CR123A battery the ATAC™ L1 Tactical Flashlight throws a brilliant 173 ANSI FL1 Lumens of light in a smooth tactical beam pattern while providing 2 hours of runtime on (HIGH) and 46 hours of runtime on (LOW). The tactical Intelligent Switch is designed to silently cycle through all 3 light modes (High/Low/Strobe) using only the Momentary-On function to prevent the “Click” sound from potentially giving up your location. The rotary Dial Lock-Out Switch allows you to instantly lock or unlock the light with just one hand using your thumb to prevent inadvertent activation. Another tactical feature developed by professionals for professionals is the Break-Away Lanyard designed to free your arm from the flashlight in the event of an emergency.

For those of you that didn’t get your fix of bomb disarming in the movie The Hurt Locker or old MacGyver episodes:

The Danger Bomb Alarm Clock is the answer!

How it works:

  • A minute before the alarm is set to go off, the clock starts beeping.  You need to defuse it by unplugging the correct wire according to the colored LEDs on the front.
  • If you ignore the beeping long enough, once the clock reaches 10 seconds it will count backwards in Japanese, and if it reaches zero and you were unable to disarm the bomb
  • KABOOOOOM have fun listening to a loud exploding nose over and over.

Sounds like a good idea in order to get a person out of bed in the morning.  After watching the youtube video, I think disarming the bomb and waking up would be a far better option than listening to that obnoxious explosion over and over.
