LED flashlights aren’t new, but this isn’t an ordinary LED flashlight. The TFCFL 1800LM XM-L T6 LED Zoomable Torch Flashlight (approximately $17 online) is powered by a standard 18650 lithium rechargeable battery that provides up to five hours of continuous use.* The zoom feature allows you to concentrate light to get better illumination or pull back to light up large areas. Use the serrated front bezel for self-defense or to break glass in emergency situations. The flashlight kit comes with plug-in car and AC wall chargers, lithium battery, “AAA” battery adapter, a lanyard and a plastic case.
