A flashlight can be the difference between getting home safely and stumbling around aimlessly in the dark.
Finding a good flashlight at a good price can be just as difficult… Most “tactical flashlights” are incredibly expensive.
Don’t get me wrong, they are awesome and effective, but I’d much rather have 10 OK flashlights that get the job done just as well for a fraction of the cost.
When I was at the NRA conference earlier this year, I almost convinced myself into buying one of these… but I just could not come to terms with $50.00 for a flashlight.
But check out this one that I found stumbling through amazon this weekend.
I want to start off by saying that I can’t give this a full personal review as I am still waiting for mine to come in the mail.. but based on the 1,600+ reviews and nearly 5 star rating…. I felt it was safe enough for me to reach into my own pockets for this one!
(the price tag of only $3.80 cents with free shipping helped out a lot too)
This little light packs 300 lumens of power from a single AA battery,
- 7W 300LM Mini CREE LED Flashlight Torch Adjustable Focus Zoom Light Lamp
- Super mini size, sits at just under 3.75″ long fits just about anywhere.
- Skid-proof & waterproof design.
- Weighs in at right around 2 ounces
I’ve been looking for a while to replace my cheap led flashlights, and I can’t wait till this one gets here.
From what I’ve read in the reviews, some of the flashlights may differ (ie some may have caps that allow for strobe, medium, and high modes and others have just an on and off mode), but at under $4.00 bucks for this type of flashlight… I’m not going to complain.
If you’re looking for a new flashlight yourself, or your just a gear junkie like me, Check this one out!
Also if you click here, and scroll down to the top user review, the poster gives a great video showing just how effective this light is.
P.S. I was talking to my best friend about this little light and he said he saw it but opted to go for this lights “big brother,” it comes in at a whopping 1000 Lumens of light. He said it worked great for about 2 weeks but then the rechargable battery died in it.
Even so it only cost him about $9.00 for it. So if you think that 300 lumens isn’t enough for you, check out this one:
