GME, a market leader in safety, communication and entertainment products, has launched an innovative product which solves the problem of the torch batteries being flat when you need it most – in an emergency.

The solution comes in the form of the ET100 Emergency Torch. The ET100 is an ideal tool for people who love outdoor activities such as boating, fishing, bushwalking, 4WD-ing, and camping.

Constructed from high visibility yellow polycarbonate, the ET100 is a near indestructible, buoyant, waterproof, multi-function LED torch which boasts a unique ‘Twist to Charge’ functionality that will mean you never have to buy batteries for your torch again. If you’re near a power source, you can also charge your ET100 via USB using the cable included
and stored within the torch body itself.

Far more than just a torch, the ET100 contains a can opener which doubles as a knife, a compass, a whistle, a signal mirror (heliograph), and a cable for charging other USB devices such as a mobile phone. There’s even a metal bottle opener moulded into the base of the torch.

Three user selectable brightness settings enable power optimisation to match the task at hand, and if the going gets really tough, there is even a built in S.O.S. flash mode.

For those who venture out on the water, the ET100 will float to the surface if accidentally dropped overboard! Location and retrieval becomes an easy task. As an introductory bonus, the ET100 will be sold including a bonus ET50 ‘bug light’. The ET50 is a handy pocket sized torch, small enough to attach to your keyring, bicycle handlebar, bag or backpack. It’s waterproof, has three brightness modes plus S.O.S. and flash modes.

The ET100 is available at all Authorised GME Dealers for an RRP of $49. For further information see your GME Dealer or

GME – An Australian company taking the search out of Search and Rescue
In 30 years almost 30,000 lives have been saved worldwide because of the global system of distress beacon signalling. Having activated an Australian made GME 406 EPIRB and listened to the throb of an Australian Navy Seahawk as it approached in the darkness towards our stricken boat in huge seas in the 1998 Sydney Hobart race, this writer is very favourably inclined towards GME EPIRBS and these days even more so with GME producing EPIRBS with GPS.
