mPhase Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: XDSL), a leader in the development of Smart Surfaces and advanced battery technologies today announced that its mPower Emergency Illuminator is showcased in the September 2010 issue of Men's Journal magazine, on newsstands now.
The magazine's annual "Design and Style" September issue includes a color image of the Illuminator. Beneath the headline "The Forever Flashlight," the following description appears: "For daily use, the mPower Emergency Illuminator draws juice for its 180-lumen LED from normal CR123 cells, but its brushed-aluminum body also hides a reserve battery with a shelf life of more than 20 years. It can keep the light glowing for two hours or charge a cellphone via the built-in USB port.
Designed by Porsche Design Studio of Zell am See, Austria, and manufactured by MKE of Heidenreichstein, Austria, the mPower Emergency Illuminator is a precision instrument with a powerful 180 Lumens LED and two separate battery tubes. One tube is for everyday use and holds two CR123 batteries, while the other tube holds mPhase's Power On Command™ reserve battery. If the regular CR123 batteries run down, the Reserve Battery takes over -- even after laying idle for 20 years. The Emergency Illuminator also features a USB port that can be used for charging portable devices such as a cell phone.
