Vidor Flashylight Flashlight, designed 1988
Rayovac, founded as The French Battery Company, was best known for its development of heavy-duty batteries, including silver oxide button cells and the first all zinc chloride battery, and for the flashlights that housed them. Introduced in 1984, the “Workhorse” flashlight carried a lifetime warranty, making it the company’s longest-lasting product to date. Rayovac, with Petterson, gave the durable favorite a makeover in 1988, producing this “Vidor Flashylight,” an eye-popping neon-cased version of the “Workhorse.”
