Occasionally I see some interesting travel related products being crowd funded that I think you guys might be interested in.  We’ve talked about the Tropic travel shoe, the Cleansebot bacteria killing robot, and the Hypercube charger, among others. Here’s a few of the travel related crowd funded projects that I’ve seen

Today I wanted to talk a bit about the ReveaLED flashlight, which bills itself as the world’s first multiwavelength UV light especially designed for travelers & photographers. It is currently on Kickstarter through this Sunday, April 7th, so you only have a few days left to back it

All Kickstarter / Indiegogo links in this post may pay me a commission if you boost the project through my link.

ReveaLED flashlight features

The idea for the ReveaLED flashlight came from a study showing that hotel bedspreads might only be changed 4 times a year and 3 out of 9 hotels they studied didn’t even change the SHEETS in between guests (!).

Here are a few pictures of the ReveaLED flashlight

 

ReveaLED flashlight video

Here’s a video showing off some of the different options and features of the ReveaLED flashlight

Personally I’m not sure if KNOWING what all is on the sheets would make me feel better or whether I prefer to just revel in my own ignorance…. 🙂

ReveaLED flashlight backing levels and cost

The Aroo Travel Compression system is on Kickstarter and has currently raised over USD$5,800 from a goal of only about USD$300. Here are a few of the levels that you can back the project at

  • $27 for one ReveaLED flashlight ($38 once the early bird backings run out)
  • $53 for three flshlights
  • $104 for six flashlights

Again, here is the link to back the ReveaLED multiwavelength flashlight – you have only until Sunday April 7th to back it and it is currently scheduled to ship in May 2019

What do you think of this flashlight?  Planning on backing this?  Leave your experience in the comments!
