PORTLAND, Ore. – July 24, 2012 – Trioh!, created by Greg Hinzmann – experienced designer for companies such as Nike, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Logitech and more, is now available for pre-order on Kickstarter. The three-in-one flashlight functions as a rechargeable flashlight, emergency light or accent light. Trioh! features a sleek, modern design so sexy users can leave it on display and easily find and use it at will. http://vimeo.com/44208140
Trioh! automatically turns on when the power goes out ensuring users can easily find a flashlight when they need it most. Trioh! rests securely on a durable charging base which means the flashlight will always stay charged and there is no need to search for batteries in the dark.
Trioh! has three adjustable super-bright LEDs which can serve as a powerful flashlight or as an accent light when toned down. Trioh!’s rechargeable batteries provide an estimated 12 hours of constant use in flashlight mode. Additionally, when in emergency mode, the Trioh! will pulse light for three days on one full charge.
“I developed the Trioh! after years of living in an area that was prone to power outages. Stumbling around in the dark looking for a flashlight when I needed it most and often finding the batteries dead spurred the idea,” said Greg Hizmann, designer of Trioh!. “We keep our flashlights hidden out of sight because they are designed like tools. I realized that if you design something attractive enough, people will display it making it even more practical.”
