I haven’t got a clue that who invented the flashlight but it is one thing that comes in handy.
I bet we all can think of pages what one may use a flashlight for.

  4. Peppylady,

    Flashlights do come in handy on many occasions. Here is a bit of information on the flashlight for your enjoyment:

    "Although a flashlight is a relatively simple device, its invention did not occur until the late 19th century because it depended upon the earlier invention of the electric battery and electric light. Conrad Hubert received a US patent in 1903 , number 737,107 issued August 26, for a flashlight with an on/off switch in the now familiar cylindrical casing containing lamp and batteries. THE STORY
