Chaselight / Dog leash

Chaselight
Chaselight

Chaselight is a dog leash with a yellow LED powered by the lovely tethering between the dog and its owner. As the dog walks or runs, the elastic leash is repeatedly stretched and pulled back and transforms the mechanical energy into electricity. This environmentally-protective design lights the dog and its owner in the dark, alerts the drivers, and thus increases the safety and pleasure of walking a dog. The silicone handle allows long-time grasp with ease. The power indicators (green, yellow and red) kindly remind the owner to take a walk with his/her dog to charge Chaselight and also love.
