Broken down? Turn your pencil into a flashlight.
If there's one thing I know about travel, it's be prepared. But it's sometimes easier said than done. We all know we should carry emergency supplies in the trunk of the car, and one of those essentials is a flashlight. It can help you see the root of the problem under the hood or the beneath the car itself, and obviously it's invaluable at night. But if you don't have one, you can still see the light...if you have a pencil!
This clever guy shows you, quickly and easily, how to turn a regular pencil into a very bright light using only the pencil, some speaker wire and your battery. Remember it well, it may just save you from a night on the side of the road.
