Flashlights can be life-savers in emergency situations and helpful, handy assistants while taking care of things around the house. Check out the slideshow below for 17 funky flashlights that will light up your day, from flashlight stun guns to gloves that glow.

Implications - Flashlights are basic items that many people own in their homes. They are often shoved away in drawers or kept in basements. Having a flashlight that is designed to look great may have people putting them out as decorations instead of hiding them away. If a flashlight is out on display where one can see it, it won't be hard to find when that person actually needs it.
