a solution for a non-existent problem?

I guess, with 4100 lumens, not only can you blind an attacker you can brand them as well.

Yikes!  Children - don't try this at home! 
Maybe it should be part of an advanced First Aid Kit to cauterize wounds.

That is one crazy video.

I could see it being a nice to have in an emergency.  But like the previous poster, seems a little dangerous especially with kids.

I think I'd rather have a regular flashlight with a small zip-lock taped to it with a couple matchbooks.

Maybe that is just the parent in me speaking.

I am the original poster and it was just my intent to show the things that people will do...
not to seriously suggest it as a viable fire starter...just one of a few flashlights with"RECOIL"
I also carry a waterproof match safe and a BIC lighter...but what a flashlight!
I would just use 000 steel wool and a battery if I had no other means.STEEL WOOL BURNS.
