Its dimensions are 303mm x 163mm x 22mm and its cable length is 1.5 meters. It offers a USB interface only. Its power consumption is 5Vdc at 100mA max.
A2 Aviator: This flashlight is useful for anyone needing a high and low beam in a single long-running flashlight. Constructed of aerospace grade aluminum with a military specification hard-anodized finish and powered by two lithium batteries (10-year shelf life), the 5.6", four-ounce flashlight features a high-output incandescent lamp surrounded by three LEDs set in a specially designed parabolic reflector. The LEDs are available in five color choices: white, red, blue, green and yellow-green. The flashlight uses two lithium 123A 3V batteries with 10-year shelf life (included). The Surefire MA02 high-output incandescent lamp produces 50 lumens of white light for 60 minutes — three LEDs producing three lumens max output for 15 hours, followed by more than 30 hours of minimal output.
Five-outlet power multiplier
Powersquid: This five outlet power multiplier converts one grounded outlet to five grounded adapter-ready outlets. It provides a yellow-lighted master switch with 15A circuit breaker and 4' 14/3 power cord.
Mic mute switch
Cough Drop Sign Off: A mic mute switch, this product features a sloped top panel that allows easy access to the switch for foot or hand operation; a sturdy 16-gauge steel and extruded polyvinyl chloride enclosure; and a passive design that requires no batteries or phantom power to operate. It connects with standard mic cables. Because it is passive, it can be used with mic or line-level signals.
Power Pack: This nine-ounce disposable charger is a 1/3W device with a streamlined fuel cell that converts chemical energy into electricity. Although fuel cells pack more power than batteries, most run on methanol — a highly volatile liquid. This charger uses a mixture of glycerol and sodium borohydride as fuel. It is non-explosive and doesn't require a complicated membrane to force a reaction. Once activated, it draws in air at the cathode to create hydroxide ions. These ions travel through an electrolyte to the anode. There they react with sodium borohydride to create a current. When the electrons hit the cathode, they mix with oxygen to create more hydroxide ions.
