Peak LED Flashlights

As it turns out, the need to jam a handful of D batteries into a flashlight half the size of a baseball bat is no longer – at least, not where brightness is concerned. Peak’s 3 ¾” flashlights weigh as little as 1 ounce (sans battery) and output up to 235 lumens using just a single AAA battery, the brightest available using this source of power. A simple twist turns the CREE XPG LED on, adjusting from dim to bright as the head is further turned. Else, they’re machined from either brass (shown), aluminum, or stainless steel, and are both water- and shock-resistant thanks to o-ring sealed openings and dampened electronics, respectively.
