HydraLight review: Water Powered Flashlight. As Seen On TV product reviews


hey this is Jeff with Jeff reviews for
you and if you’re new here my channel is dedicated to reviewing as-seen-on-tv
items other household gadgets and consumer goods if you like that please
consider subscribe to my channel look me up on Twitter and just hang on for the
ride now let’s get to today’s review hey there today we’re gonna be looking at a
nother flashlight we’ve already looked at the tack light
the tack light Pro we’ve looked at the tack lantern and the tack lantern Pro I
think that’s all the lights we’ve looked at now they all have one thing in common
they all require batteries well this flashlight is actually called
the Hydra light and what does that run on it runs on water that’s pretty cool a
little strange but pretty cool man I think this would be awesome for those of
you that are corrupters or those that you are campers or van life or you know
what if you just want to have this in your house in case of a power outage you
have something to reach to it actually says this will last shelf life up to 25
years so you have it for a long time if you need to the general concept is you
take this battery which is their cell and you dunk it into water you take it
out you stick it into the flashlight and then it runs pretty cool pretty cool
technology I will say it does say it only lasts up to 300 hours which is not
a long time most LED bulbs last about hundred thousand hours or more so you’ll
be needing to replace this battery frequently if you’re utilizing this time
and time again and there is a website that you can go to to get additional
batteries and we’ll talk about that in a little bit but I’m kind of excited about
this product I’m excited about the technology that it offers so let’s get
to an unboxing okay so some of these packages you see that they have like a
tear out back we could rip them open this does not so I actually had to cut
down the line and I cut off this plastic that
way I think they put it in this sealed plastic because realistically if you
keep this in the plastic lasts up to 25 years
sorry for all the crinkling and so that’s pretty impressive they do
recommend you keeping it in a dry environment as well so here we have two
simple items the flashlight and the battery so what they tell you to do is
they said get water and get any kind of water and so I just have tap water right
here and I say drop the cell in there for 10 to 12 seconds so let’s take a
look at this flashlight to show you how big it actually is this is the TAC light
krill that I reviewed not too long ago and look at it next to the Hydra light
it is significantly larger pretty impressive size light so you won’t
definitely won’t lose this I think that was probably about 10 12 seconds so
let’s take this out of the water let that last a little bit drain off now it
does tell you to shake off the excess water so I have a bucket over here on
the side to come you can’t see it but that’s what I’m shaking this off into
just to shake off the excess water all right I think that about doesn’t right
quick turn for the bottom of the flashlight and there is an arrow
direction it says insert and so you’re inserting it this way you put the bottom
back on there we go before I turn it on or try to turn it on I will say there’s
a cool little hook right here where you could hook this on something and maybe
dangle it maybe that’s for the lantern function that’s pretty cool – all right
a moment of truth will it work or will it not oh look at
that it’s a bright light whoa that is pretty cool I’m really really impressed
with this light all right now I’m gonna show you the lantern let’s say I think
you just pull this up well and that’s pretty cool
I really liked this light it’s gonna come in handy if the power goes out I’m
a frequent camper so this will be sweet to be using out there I don’t the bring
extra batteries it’s a really really neat light so this is the Hydra light it
runs on water and you heard that correctly this does run on water and my
test I think it did a great job so originally was going to do a video
over time showing you how the brightness would would reduce but there really is
no point in that see hide your light says as the battery cell starts to dry
out it’s gonna get dim and so what they recommend is take the battery out dump
in water shake it off and put it back in and it’ll be just as brought it as it
was the very first time so there’s really no point in doing the brightness
reduction because we know it’s gonna happen you just get the battery wet
again and put it back in and you’ll be just as good but I wanted you to know
why I didn’t do that test I’m ready to give you my final review of the Hydra
light finally we have an As Seen on TV product that does exactly what it says
it will do it says it comes with a battery cell that if you dunk it in
water you could power a flashlight and yep it actually does what it says it
also says the battery will only work up to about 300 hours I appreciate the
honesty it also says you can buy more battery cells and they give you a
website that’s pretty sweet stuff this is a nice durable flashlight it’s rubber
on the bottom and the top and even right here in the middle this is a great
flashlight for a case emergency or if you’re camping or whatnot I wouldn’t use
it necessarily all the time just because of the limited battery but they do
provide extra batteries so I appreciate Hydra light for being honest with your
product for us because you know what it’s a pretty sweet thing I bought this
for about 15 bucks at Walmart they do sell replacement cells for about twenty
seven dollars I think on their website for two you can also find them on Amazon
for eleven twelve dollars apiece so that’s something just so you know as
well I will say after I shook out the battery cell when that water dried there
was like this white powdery substance on it almost like a salt like thing and so
I was reading through the directions or the disclaimers on the product it says
it will leave a salty residue that is not harmful at all it’s completely
harmless so just know that you might his white powdery substance or herself
and I’ll put a picture right here just so you can see what it looked like

  1. From the HydraLight website:

    No Batteries Needed*
    Disclaimer: *No Batteries: Refers to TRADITIONAL BATTERIES, typically used in flashlights, which make electricity from energy stored EXCLUSIVELY INSIDE the batteries. The HydraLightโ„ข uses a Fuel Cell which is not considered a TRADITIONAL BATTERY as it requires EXTERNAL elements, such as water, to make electricity.

    So in short, it uses UNTRADITIONAL BATTERIES which are INCOMPLETE (lacks water) which you only can order from 1 place and they decide the price of their untraditional battery (monopoly), sounds good to you? Nah, it doesn't sound good to me either.

    It's a gimmick, it uses giant incomplete batteries that you only can buy from one place and they dictate the price, buy lithium primaries (AA) instead and just put them on the shelf next to your flashlight if you need an emergency light.
