Some folks prefer their flashlight to be a spotlight that illuminates a small area while others prefer a floodlight that brightens the immediate environment. If you desire a floodlight the SuperNight flashlight with its six LEDs is unlikely to disappoint. The SuperNight is powered by four 18650 Li-ion rechargeable batteries which, while delivering a very bright beam, will no doubt produce some heat with prolonged use. If you intend to use this flashlight for extended periods it may be best to exploit the low setting. The SuperNight has a nice golden brown color and is housed in an anodized, aircraft-grade aluminum alloy. The flashlight utilizes six CreeXM-L T6 LEDs which produce a very bright floodlight beam reaching up to 1000 meters along with high, medium and low light modes. The flashlight is operated by a push button side switch. The SuperNight flashlight pack does not come with batteries or charger.

The new SureFire Y300 Ultra unlike the X300 Ultra is not designed to be attached to a weapon. The X300 Ultra is however designed to be attached to metal surfaces with its magnetic base, or connected to bag strap, belt or backpack with its quick-detach belt clip. Since the flashlight measures only 3.6 inches in length it would fit snugly into the palm of your hand to be used as you would any other handheld light. The SureFire Y300 Ultra is housed in anodized, aerospace aluminum casing which is O-ring and gasket sealed. A steel two-way pocket clip is also included in the flashlight pack to provide additional secure attachment options, such as fastening the Y300 to the bill of a cap or carrying it securely in a pocket.
The Y300 Ultra’s LED combined with the beam-intensifying TIR lens produces a maximum output of 500 lumens of white light and two light modes: High 500 Lumens 2Hr; Low 15 Lumens 15Hr. The Y300 Ultra is powered by two 123A batteries. The flashlight is operated with its toggle switch that permits easy one-finger or thumb operation. Pressing the switch on either side would produce high-output momentary-on operation while rotating the switch up or down would deliver constant-on high-output activation. The low-output setting is accessed by pressing (for momentary-on) or rotating (for constant-on) the switch within two seconds after initial activation.
For all you cavers out there Fenix has introduced the HL55 headlamp which features the instant burst mode of 900 lumens.

The lightweight HL55 weighs 115 grams (excluding batteries) and is housed in an anodized aluminum alloy with an anti-abrasive finish.

The Fenix HL55 headlamp can be powered by one 18650 Li-ion rechargeable battery or two CR123A batteries. The headlamp is operated by an all-function side switch and features a 160-degree tilt mechanism which allows the user to adjust the beam where needed. The Fenix HL55 also features digitally regulated output which maintains constant brightness and reverse polarity protection which protects against improper battery installation.
Hello and Happy Thursday to you! A big ThankYou for taking the time to visit our bi-weekly roundup of flashlight reviews from recent postings on the Web. In today’s flashlight tip we ask, is your flashlight waterproof or water resistant? A straight answer to this question would be to get a dive flashlight if you want a truly submersible light. Most other flashlights range from being water resistant to moisture from raindrops right up to being submersible to a few meters depth. Whatever the description, it certainly wouldn’t hurt to disassemble the flashlight after it has been wet, wipe it dry with a clean cloth and lightly oil the screw threads before putting it back together. Here is today’s list of reviews. Enjoy!

So you are one of those folks who prefer the bright stainless steel design of a flashlight over the more ubiquitous black anodized aluminium finishes. ThruNite has recently released the compact T20S which should meet with your satisfaction. The T20S is housed in a stainless steel body which features the surface treatment drawing process. The mini flashlight which measures 80.5mm in length and comes with a removable clip and also features an ultra-clear glass lens with anti-reflective coating and an OP reflector.

The flashlight can be powered by one CR123, RCR123 or 16340 battery. The flashlight can be operated by a push button switch in the tailcap or by a twist of the head. The T20S is compact enough to be carried on your belt, bag or pocket without you being aware of its presence. While the flashlight would be just as handy indoors and out, the light is particularly suited to illuminating tight spaces for technicians and reading off clipboards and maps.
If you desire to get your hands on a really bright diving flashlight for less than forty bucks you can check out the new VicTec Super 4000 lumen flashlight which is submersible up to 100 meters. The VicTec is encased in an aircraft grade aluminium casing which features a tough waterproof coating along with being double “O”ring sealed. The flashlight contains three Cree XM-L 3xT6 LED emitters which produce a maximum of up to 4000 lumens and three brightness levels: High; Medium; Low.

The flashlight which measures nine inches in length is operated by a push-button switch in the tailcap. Should you consider acquiring this product you would also have to purchase the required rechargeable batteries and charger.
