We don’t need a flashlight often, but when we do, we know we need a good one. I think I have discovered the best AA flashlight for under $40 available today. Perhaps I have just fallen in love with my latest gadget as I have a tendency to do, but honestly I am just so impressed with this one.
Over the years I have bought so many torches and flashlights that I have honestly lost count. There are still a few relics knocking about my garage. (No idea why I don’t just throw them out) This one though is just in a league of its own. It is small at under 5″, is very light even with the batteries in, and the light it has is pretty amazing.
I do a lot of camping and I also walk a lot especially in the evenings. This little beauty will surprise you should you ever get one. I like the idea of the AA batteries as I happen to have rechargeable AA batteries and a good charger. That said, even if I had to buy ordinary batteries to power this flashlight, I most certainly would. These batteries last me about an hour and a half on the full beam which I think is great.
I really don’t fully understand what 120 lumens actually means in terms of brightness, but let me put it this way, it sure is bright. I know from my many camping trips that it is waterproof which is great for me. I also like the fact that it is rugged and yet light to hold. Add to that it has a lifetime warranty and you can hardly go too far wrong.
As I said I am a bit of a gadget freak so I like the way that it comes with a pretty neat looking nylon holster. That also has a belt clip that you can decide to use or not, depending on your preference.
I have included below another handy gadget that I like. It truly is what I would call a boy’s toy but for grown up boys if you know what I mean. Most men would love one of these so if you are stuck for a great gift idea, then I would recommend one of these.
I have also included a good value pack of batteries that will power the best “AA” flashlight I have reviewed above.
