So there are flashlights and there are flashlights. Your ordinary, grown in the garden variety will probably throw out a bit of light for 20 meters or so, and you’ll be very happy to have it when you’re staggering through the dark woods on the way to grandma’s house.
But for those who feel the need, the need for illumination – know what we mean? – there are better options. Like this Heider CF1 Flashlight, which offers three stage variable output (high, low and SOS) and at the top setting can throw out some serious light to around 300 meters.
Now we’re not saying that length is everything (some specs on battery life would be useful in this context we’re thinking) but boy that’s a lot of light from a small package. The flashlight is also apparently water resistant and comes with something called an ‘optical focus feature’ which we’re not too sure about. And the current price for all this technological brilliance (geddit?) is a mere $49.90. Bargain.
