Hybrid Light Shines the Way for Boy Scouts with Solar Flashlights, Lanterns, and Headlamps

What does an avid hunter, professional race care driver, manufacturer, and contractor dream about?

The ultimate flashlight.

Terry Richardson created the ultimate flashlight, and uses it to help the Utah National Parks Council light the way for better camping!

Terry Richardson created the ultimate flashlight, and uses it to help the Utah National Parks Council light the way for better camping!

That’s what Terry Peterson, the founder of Hybrid Light has dreamed about and tinkered with for years.

Between 14 years on the Micky Thompson Super Light racing circuit and traveling with his wife to watch their son play baseball, Terry has had a lot of time to think about and test his flashlight designs.

During his contracting work in China for Dewalt, he had a couple of days to kill and went to an electronics fair and found a factory making all kinds of flashlights.

To him the ultimate flashlight would:

  • Always work when you needed it
  • Never need batteries
  • Be virtually indestructible
  • Be Bright enough to see far away
  • Be Waterproof and would float
  • Be Reasonably priced
  • Would last almost forever
  • And did I say it would always work?

He designed his first prototype and had it manufactured.

His first call was Lowes. They loved it.

His racing buddies loved it. One took the flashlight home and his kids loved it.

His friend in Maine at L.L. Bean placed an order and it was one of his favorite products. He ordered 50 himself for his friends as gifts.

Terry kept changing the design, improved it, gave it to friends to test it, and listened.

Test, test, test.

By now he thinks he may actually have the ultimate flashlight…

He has a flashlight that always works, charges from the sun or indoor lights, never needs to buy new batteries, is made of polycarbonate and PVC and is almost indestructible.

The HybridLight floats and is waterproof. It even floats solar cell up so it charges!

It is very bright, it floats solar cell up, naturally rolls and stops solar side up, and is waterproof.

It never needs to buy flashlight batteries again it is very affordable, stays on for 58 hours, holds a charge while sitting for 7 years, and has a lifetime warranty.

This flashlight is rugged. Costco sold it and reported back that had one of the lowest returns of any product they have sold… ever!

And it always works when you need it.

Terry loves and respects the Boy Scouts and is very big on hunting and preparedness. He believes that the biggest asset to Scouting is the outdoor camping experience and felt that his flashlights and Scouting naturally go together.

    I have just been given a new Hybrid flashlight with solar cell . Really well made, and it looks like I can just stand it inside a widow to recharge.

    I’ve had several lamps, but from other manufacturers. They all suffer one bit of design I don’t like. Such a lamp should not have the solar charger fixed on the top because (1) it stops light going to the ceiling of a tent or room, trailer, yacht. If the light is allowed to do this, you get much better lighting from it all around, as it will light most of your space too.

    (2) with the solar pane on the top, means you have to place it mostly out in the sun, and rain, detrimental to the construction and the batteries what ever sort they are. It would be much better if you could remove the solar panel and clip it out in the sun, alone, with a cable leading back to the unit. Maybe ten feet would do. In harsh tropical areas, this is what you really need. You need your unit out of the sun and weather, and light that can come also, out of the top up into your ceiling. This lights all your space by relection.
    Such a design would sell really well. World wide. You could buy a unit for every room and save a lot of electrical energy. I am already, a long time, doing this with three self made solar charged units. Colin Leslie Beadon.
