Build a $100 flashlight with $10 bucks. Pretty cool.

Dude made $1000 bucks with this video!

Any of you got one of those expensive flashlights?

Yeah, that is cool. But I'm thinking the $100 light is gonna last about 100 years longer than the one he made.

Don't get me wrong. It's cool. But sometimes you really do get what you pay for. That thing is toast the first time he drops it.

I wouldn't pay $100 for a little utility light like that, but I'd pay $20 for an aluminum housed model that will hold up to a little wear and tear.

Maglites with LEDs are nice, and they don't cost much...

Most peolple don't need anything beyond a 2 D cell plastic incandescent piece of crap. Law enforcement and military have different needs. Hunters and shooters use qualight lights too.

FWIW, a rechargable maglight costs around $125. Most quality flashlights run around $60-80.

If anyone ever asks what you want for father's Day/Birthday/Christmas, tell them a 3D cell maglight (if you don't have a quality flashlight already) I got one a few years back and the thing is invaluable.

Plus, It's a great flashlight to have when you need a hammer.

It's showing that he's made about $35k by just making < 1 minute videos about common stuff.

A homemade fleshlight would net him much more, I bet.
