HexBright Flex

Looking for a little customizability in your flashlight? HexBright Flex has you covered Beneath its rugged machined-aluminum exterior lies an Arduino-compatible microchip – just unscrew the tailcap for access – that can be programmed using a computer to customize brightness, flash patterns, and more, controlled by toggling patterns of its lone rubbed button. Plus, with its USB-rechargeable Li-Ion battery and USA-made CREE XM-L U2 LED bulb that churns out a brilliant 500 lumens for an hour (or for longer at lower brightnesses: 8 hours at 175 lumens or  30 hours at 50 lumens), the HexBright should easily handle any job you throw at it, including self defence: its sheer maximum brightness should easily induce temporary blindness.
