Think about the world of flashoholics before the era of Li-Ion batteries.

I still remember carrying sealed lead acid packs in caves, not to mention carbide lamps

It changed the world, including for our lights.

I hear people complaining about battery life on their smartphones. They want a revolution. I tell them the revolution already happened. They’re just looking for another one.

Wow first blue LEDs in 2014 and now Li-ion batteries, lots of Nobel prizes being used in flashlights. I thought Li-ion batteries were incrementally developed by a huge pool of scientists.
