The Coast PX1 480 Lumen Pure Beam Focusing LED Flashlight is the brightest and smallest light we tested, and it also happens to be my favorite. The Coast PX1 has a sleek, compact profile that makes it easy to grip and carry, and its focused beam makes it easy to focus on the task at hand. The Coast PX1's powerful 480 lumens make it ideal for outdoor activities, and the narrow beam makes it easy to illuminate small, tight spaces. The PX1's LED is virtually unbreakable, so it's a great choice if you often drop your flashlight. The Coast PX1's twist focus lets you easily adjust the beam from a narrow spot to a wide flood. The Coast PX1 also has an adjustable pocket clip, so you can carry it in a pocket or attach it to your backpack. The PX1's 4-hour battery life makes it a good flashlight for outdoor activities, such as hiking, camping, or hunting. However, the PX1's 4-hour battery life is too short for daily carry, and it's unfortunate that Coast did not include a charger with the light.

Handheld Flashlight 7100 Lumen with 26650 rechargeable Batteries LED Tactical Flashlight Zoomable 2 Modes Adjustable Focus Water Resistant for Camping Hiking Outdoor Biking Emergency

XURLEQ Handheld Flashlight 7100 Lumen with 26650 rechargeable Batteries LED Tactical Flashlight 2 Zoomable Modes Adjustable Focus Water Resistant for Camping Hiking Outdoor Biking Emergency

by XURLEQ

WIDELY USEEasy to carry with you as a backup and is small enough to fit in your pocket, handbag, drawer, or car compartment. Takes standard 26650 battery(Batteries Are Included). Perfect for climbing, fishing, hunting, etc.

The 7100 Lumen Tactical Flashlight from Streamlight is bright, compact, and tough. The 26650 rechargeable battery is rechargeable via any USB charging source, and the battery lasts about 6 hours on full brightness, 3 hours on medium, and 1.5 hours on low light. It's powerful enough to light a whole room, and the spot and flood beam lets you choose the best beam for the situation. The zoom is a bit clunky, but there's a lock button on the side to prevent accidental zooming. The 7100 Lumen Tactical Flashlight is heavy (about 4.2 pounds), so it's best for handheld or overhead use. While it's durable enough for daily use, it's best used as a camping or emergency light, and it's a bit too bulky for everyday use on the road.

JCKSY Green Beam Pointer

by JCKSY

PERFECTLY PORTABLE: portable size and easy to carry. No matter where you go, you can match them perfectly.

The JCKSY Green Beam Pointer is the brightest handheld light we found, and it has the longest range as well. Its 800-lumen beam is bright enough to illuminate a 50-foot room, and it reaches up to 1,500 feet away. The beam is so much brighter than the 500-lumen beams of most handheld lights, and the JCKSY is bright enough to read by, to light a dark room, or to light up a large area. The beam is adjustable, so you can direct it where you need it, and the cap is removable, so you can switch between different beam patterns. The JCKSY is battery- and charger-free, and the battery can last for 6 hours of continuous use. The light has a button and a switch, making it easy to use. The light beam has a white, yellow, and blue shade, and the cap has 11 different patterns, including white, yellow, blue, red, green, and 5 dimming options, so you can adjust the light to suit your needs.

The Streamlight 120-LED Tactical Flashlight is bright enough to be used as a hunting light. It's bright enough to be used as a home defense light, and it's bright enough to be used as a weapon-mounted light. It's powered by a 1,200-lumen Cree LED, and the beam is adjustable from a spot to flood. It works with 2 rechargeable 18650 batteries, and it has a pressure switch and a remote switch. The remote switch is on the side of the flashlight, and it's adjustable from 0 to 100%. The remote switch is convenient, but it's not as easy to use as on a light with a built-in pressure switch. The flashlight runs on three modes: constant on, momentary on, and strobe. The remote switch can also be used in strobe mode. The remote switch is mounted on the flashlight's top, and it's covered with a rubber cover. The remote switch can be tricky to use, and it can be hard to find the right position. The flashlight has 2 quick-release mounts, including one for a firearm. The flashlight runs for 45 minutes on 1 charge, and it has a 6-hour charge time. The flashlight is 3.6 inches long and weighs 3.8 ounces.

Tactical Flashlight, Wowlite Ultra Bright LED Flashlight with 5 Light Modes & Adjustable Focus for Emergency Camping Hiking (2 pack)

wowlite Tactical Flashlight

by wowlite

WEATHER & SHOCK RESISTANT- The tactical flashlight is made of military-grade aluminum alloy, IPX6-rated water resistant and designed for use in heavy rain and the impact resistance. Its durable aluminum body and shock-resistance endure rough handling. You can count on this flash light during power outages, roadside repairs, and safety emergencies.

The Wowlite LED flashlight is very bright, with a long, sturdy, easy-to-grip body that folds up easily for storage. It's also sturdy enough for most camping trips, and the four modes (bright, medium, low, and strobe) are bright enough for any situation, from outdoors to indoors. The strobe mode is especially useful for keeping yourself visible in an emergency. The flashlight is bright enough for most situations, but it's a bit dim for extremely dark areas. The switch is convenient and easy to use, and it's large enough so that you won't be fumbling around in the dark trying to find a switch. The flashlight is sturdy enough that it can withstand being dropped from a height, although it's not crash-proof; it would likely break if dropped onto a hard surface. The flashlight's body is made of diecast aluminum, which is both sturdy and lightweight. The flashlight's lenses are made of plastic, and I'm not a fan of plastic lenses because they tend to scratch easily. Fortunately, the lenses are removable, so you can easily replace them if they do get scratched. The flashlight runs on three AAA batteries or one 18650 rechargeable Li-ion battery (not included). The 18650 battery is much more convenient than the AAA battery, although it costs more. The flashlight's power is high enough that it can easily light up an entire room, but it's low enough that it won't drain the 18650 battery in a night of use.

outlite S1000 Portable Handheld LED Flashlight with Adjustable Focus and 5 Light Modes, Outdoor Water Resistant Flashlights High Lumens, Tactical Flashlight for Camping Hiking Emergency

outlite S1000 Portable Handheld LED Flashlight Adjustable with Focus and 5 Light Modes

by outlite

Portable Mini Size - LED flashlight is compact. Length:5.35", Diameter: 1.33", Weight 179g, fits very well in your hand, pocket, backpack and purse allowing for easy storage and quick access.

The Outlite S1000 is a surprisingly bright LED flashlight with a bright, wide beam. It has five light settings -- high, medium, low, strobe, and SOS emergency mode -- and a bright, steady beam that projects 100 square meters or more, so it's a good choice for lighting up a large area. It's easy to use, too, thanks to the on/off button and a red light indicating when the batteries are low. The flashlight also has some kind of memory function, so after turning the flashlight off, it remembers your last setting and restarts with that setting the next time it is turned on. The flashlight is also waterproof, so it's a good choice for use in the rain or while doing outdoor chores. The flashlight is heavy, at 1.4 pounds, and it's a bit bulky, so it's less convenient for carrying around in a purse or pocket. For its size, however, the Outlite S1000 has a fairly long battery life. The flashlight uses three AAA batteries, which generate about 500 lumens, and a single rechargeable 18650 battery, which generates about 1,000 lumens. The flashlight also emits a bright red light when the batteries are low, which is a useful reminder that you need to change them. Overall, the Outlite S1000 is a good choice for anyone looking for a bright, wide-beam flashlight that's easy to carry and use.

Easy to carry - 4.7 inches L x 1.1 inches x 0.9 inches. Led flashlights is small enough to fit in your pocket, handbag, or car compartment, so you can take it with you wherever, whenver

The LED Tactical Flashlight is a terrific value. It offers big lumens, lots of brightness, and a very long run time. It's very easy to use, too, thanks to a quick-start button and clearly marked buttons and controls. The LED Tactical Flashlight is water-resistant, so it's perfect for use in the rain, snow, or other emergency situations. Battery life is also excellent, lasting about 40 hours on high and 150 hours on medium. The LED Tactical Flashlight has 5 light modes: High, Medium, Low, Strobe, and SOS. The High mode is the brightest and lasts the longest, but it's somewhat noisy and strobes quite frequently. The Medium mode is a little dimmer, but it also lasts longer. The Low mode is dimmer still, but it's perfect for bedrooms, bathrooms, and other low-light environments. The Strobe and SOS modes are both useful, but the SOS mode in particular is handy for signaling for help in emergencies. The LED Tactical Flashlight has a quick-release button at the top, so you can quickly change the battery without having to unscrew anything. The LED Tactical Flashlight is lightweight, so it's easy to carry or stash in a backpack or purse.
