What are some of the things in life that you never want to be left without? There are some easy ones like toilet paper and clean underwear (in case you get into an accident). You should also never be caught without a pocket knife because who doesn’t love being the hero on Christmas and you are able to get toys out that are fastened with zip ties stronger than Zeus? Also, don’t ever be caught without a bottle opener for those rare times you drink a beer fancy enough to require one and shamefully have to ask a buddy for theirs. Weirdly enough, you also don’t want to ever leave the house without your own chap stick because there is nothing more disgusting than asking Ralph in accounting if you can borrow his chap stick (he has a very weird hair lip problem). All of those things are important to have on you for a variety of reasons but one thing you always want to have on hand is a good solid flashlight that is portable but powerful which brings us to the featured gadget of the day.
CountyComm is a company that offers different government products that can range from watches and nylon bags to compact flashlights which is what we got to try out. We got to demo this firsthand and immediately fell in love with the size of Maratac Copper Flashlight. It is an LED flashlight that runs entirely off of a AAA battery and gets you upwards of 7 hours of illumination. The light is 2.6″ in length and .5″ in diameter with a total weight of 27 grams so it is very small in size. You can conveniently put one of these on a key chain or keep it in your car console. We recommend both as you will never know when and where you need a light. The Maratac LED flashlight also comes with a glow in the dark defuser which gives the flashlight even greater flexibility. when we picked up the flashlight, we could tell that when they said it was fashioned out of solid copper they weren’t lying (none of that copper plated crap you see everywhere). The bulb itself should last upwards of 50,000 hours which should cover you for quite some time. Lastly, the Maratac flashlight comes with a clip that allows you to clip the light to any fabric or thing fabric material for easier transportation. We’re huge fans of what CountyComm is offering and the Maratac Copper flashlight is a big reason. Click here for image source and where to buy.
