mPower Emergency Illuminator Receives Strong Review From PorschePurist.com

"When we first saw the Illuminator we knew we had to have one" - Porsche Purist

LITTLE FALLS, NJ--(Marketwire - May 25, 2010) -  mPhase Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: XDSL), the developer of Power on Command™ battery technologies, and consumer products received a highly positive review from PorschePurist.com, a website devoted to Porsche cars, products and lifestyle.

The reviewer states simply, "When we first saw the Illuminator we knew we had to have one." It explains, "At the heart of the mPower Emergency Illuminator is a revolutionary battery with a shelf life of at least 20 years prior to manual activation. Unlike conventional batteries, the mPower On Command Reserve Battery provides the full capacity of its charge decades into the future without deterioration or corrosion. In other words, when you need light, the Illuminator will deliver."

Included in the review is a YouTube embedded video that explains the unique reserve battery technology from mPhase that the Emergency Illuminator employs. The review also carries several illustrations showcasing various features of the device. Readers can see:

  • Elegant packaging
  • The complete contents of the box including the mPower reserve battery, case, standard alkaline batteries
  • The instruction manual
  • A side-by-side comparison with a more conventional (bigger and bulkier) flashlight
  • The Emergency Illuminator in action.

The reviewer is also quite impressed with the Emergency Illuminator's "unique ability to charge a myriad of portable electronic devices via its built in USB port... the On Command Reserve Battery will provide power for up to two hours of continuous light as well as charging ability to make and receive calls or your cell phone."

As with all emergency equipment, a flashlight needs to be rugged. Here, the Emergency Illuminator is deceptively elegant, "Due to its size and sleek, matte finish, I was originally concerned with the Emergency Illuminator's durability. However, the light is actually quite rugged and water resistant. The body is made from extruded aluminum and most other parts are machined aluminum. In other words, if you drop it, it will take the impact."

In summing up its review, PorschePurist.com enumerated the Emergency Illuminator's pros as:

  • Unique battery technology with a shelf life of 20+ years
  • USB port to charge portable devices in an emergency situation
  • Small, compact yet powerful and rugged
  • High intensity, clean white light

The final verdict, "What is it worth to know that the next time you need a light in an emergency situation, no matter how long ago you checked the batteries, that you'll have one? Hopefully, you'll never need to find out, but if you do and you have the Emergency Illuminator, you can rest assured that you won't be left in the dark."
