First off, Happy 2019!!!
I want to take the time to wish each and everyone of you much Health, Wealth and Success!
Now, as some of you may already know, I’ve decided that this year I would be reviewing all of the gadgets that I purchase or receive this year. Big or small, electronic or not. I guess my main purpose is to see how much of what I gather in a year can be labeled junk or have an actual purpose to me.
I will also review in 2019 new locations, restaurants, venues etc…you know, regular nerd stuff.
I don’t want to call myself a prepper just yet, but I am also on the lookout for items that could help me in SHTF situations as I have a strong feeling that difficult times beyond any we’ve ever encountered before are upon us.
Or I could just be paranoid?
This nifty little flashlight is bright as sh!t. It contains a lithium charged battery that can give you a 200m visibility range. That’s crazy! It’s about 22 times brighter than other flash lights. It also comes with a spare chargeable battery. It also comes with both a wall charger and a car charger. The flashlight can also be powered by 3 AAA batteries.
**The one thing I do not know is how long they can last on a charge, or how long they can remain charged if unused.
Now at first glance after turning it on a playing it for about 15 minutes, here are my general impressions.
- As I mentioned earlier, the Taclight T1100 is very bright indeed. That little device is surprisingly blinding. Something I would recommend when camping. I would also keep one in my car. It comes with a portable case too that small enough to fit in the glove box or under the seat.
- The package says is waterproof. I did not test it in any body of water. However, I did throw it in the snow and left it there for about 5 minutes, it still works fine.
- The package says it is very durable and can endure a lot of damage…such as a truck rolling over it. You can also throw it in boiling water apparently… I’ll just take their word for it.
- The value is great for the price. Yes, I looked it up on amazon. I’ve seen tv ads for it before too. The Taclight T1100 goes for around $20 which I think is a bargain. I’ve even seen deals where you can get a 2 for 1.
- The flashlight comes with 5 modes. Low, High, Med, Strobe and SOS. Convenient if ever you find yourself in an emergency.
- It also comes equipped with an adjustable zoom motion. You can increase or decrease the beam size as desired, which is cool as well.
All in all, I really like this gift. It’s compact and very lightweight. Perfect for long excursions or SHTF situations. The flashlight itself has ridged points for self-defense. It’s no knife or gun, but it’s better than nothing. I strongly recommend this flashlight as a gift, for late night outdoor activities or as an emergency tool stored in your vehicle.
