The Flens Boosts Your Mobile Phone’s Flash Up To Ten Times

The Flens is a minute magnetised phone flash magnifier. Stick it to your device (if it fits) and watch your night-time mobile phone photography go from poor to powerful.


We’ve all been there…

Out in the wild on a lovely summer night and out of nowhere a pack of lions attacks you and your camp.

You slip your mobile phone from your pocket, tap the camera app and snap a selfie of you uppercutting the lion.

The photo’s too dark, so while you’re swinging the lion around by his mane with one hand, you activate your phone’s flash.

You take another shot at the lion’s chin and snap it.

The picture is still too dark, but you decide to post it to Instagram. Since the picture is too dark, you’re forced to use the Inkwell filter, which gives your photo the appearance of a B-grade horror movie poster.

You hate it, but what can you do?

Have Instagram, will post.

You add this description: #uppercutting a #lion #thuglife #yolo.

This should trend in no time…

Then the comments start rolling in…

“Photoshop…”

“Shopped.”

“Fake.”

No one believes you because your phone’s flash wasn’t up to the task of lighting the action.

But now there’s a better way for you to capture action in the dark.

It’s called the Flens, and it’s a gadget that’s attached to your mobile phone and boosts your flash.

It’s like an instant gym workout for your phone’s flash.

Add this little contraption to your phone and watch your flash go from flimsy flake to massive muscleman.

Up to 10x boost

The Flens boosts your mobile phone’s flash up to ten times. That’s a huge difference.

Some things are best left at being seen in low light; but sometimes a little more light gives you the edge in mobile photography.
