“The Torch,” made by Wicked Lasers, is claimed to be the world's strongest flashlight. And really now, who would argue with the egg frying, marshmallow toasting, 4100 lumen wonder that can drain its batteries in 15 minutes?

Implications - This kind of powerfully excessive technology would appeal to consumers who want to embrace a sense of mischief, although it also has potential as a tool that could save lives in an emergency. Without a doubt, the coveted title of the "world's strongest" is definitely going to make a product like this stand out to consumers with more disposable income and the desire to show off their latest purchase to their friends.
