Unless you’re a warehouse security guard in a slasher flick, or live in a hurricane zone, you probably don’t put much thought into your choice of flashlights. Until the power goes out.
Which is why Duracell, famous for making batteries not endorsed by an annoying drum playing bunny, wants you know about their new, high-tech lights before you get stuck in the dark.
Their Daylite line of flashlights uses LEDs and their TrueBeam technology to capture 100 percent of the light emitted – as opposed to the typical 70 percent captured by their competitors. Which gives you a super bright white beam, without any of the black spots found in typical flashlights. (See the pics.) And the use of the more efficient LEDs means the batteries last longer, so when you pull the Daylite out of the drawer during a blackout, there’s a greater chance it’ll work. And last until the lights come back on.
They come in an 80 lumen version and a high-powered 160 lumen version, when you really need to bring in some daylight. The housing is made of super-duty aluminum, made to withstand harsh treatment, and they’re small enough to fit in your glove compartment or toolbox. And, yeah, the batteries are included.
$24.99 – 80 lumen version
$34.99 – 160 lumen version
