It is said a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush but to get our Flashlight Pack Of The Day consisting of two “Rockbirds” in your hand you can dispense with the flora and simply produce $16.99. The Rockbirds LED adjustable focus flashlight can either be powered by three AAA (NiMH/Alkaline) batteries or one rechargeable 1x 18650 3.6v/3.7v Lithium Ion battery. Since no batteries are included with the purchase of the flashlights, you will be obliged to acquire a charger if you decide to go with the 18650 battery. Two battery carriers are included to use with the AAA batteries and plastic tubes for the 18650 batteries before the cells are inserted into the flashlights.
The Rockbird measures 5.4 inches long when compact and 6.1 inches when fully extended to facilitate the zoom function. The flashlight weighs 180 grams without any batteries installed. The Rockbirds is housed inside an aircraft-grade aluminum alloy which features knurling for a firm grip and a detachable, crenellated bezel which can be used during emergencies. The flashlight also features a hard anodized anti-abrasive Black finish and a luminous ring around the neck which shines green during dark periods to allow a user to locate the light.
The Rockbirds utilizes a Cree XM-T6 LED emitter, a bronze reflector and an ultra-clear, convex glass lens. Even though the flashlight can be powered by three AAA batteries if you desire to achieve maximum brightness you would have to use a fully charged 18650 battery. The flashlight produces a maximum output of 700 lumens, a beam throw distance of 250 meters and five light modes: High; Mid; Low; Strobe; SOS.
The Rockbirds is operated by a bright green switch in the tail and the adjustable focus mechanism in the head. Press the switch until a click is hear to turn on/off the light. With the flashlight turned on tap the switch to cycle through the various brightness levels. A user can adjust the focus of the light beam from a flood to spotlight by sliding the head forward and back when the flashlight is on. The Rockbirds LED Flashlight 2Pack contains two nice lights which would prove very handy in the event of a low light emergency around the home or shop.
