Brand new for 2016 are three offerings from Nite Ize to keep you illuminated. The 3-in-1 series of lights provide exceptional brightness, are very lightweight, and will burn for hours on their included AA batteries.
Each offers three lighting options and multiple modes of operation. The white light has two brightness settings, high and low. The focused beam and reflector provide exceptional bright white light from the single LED. Slide out the reflector housing, and the focused beam becomes a diffused lantern, providing 360 degrees of light. Lanyard holes on the base let you tie cord to the light for hanging so it can be used to light up your tent or campsite. The second button turns on a glowing circle of diffused red light in the base. One press of the button gives you a solid red light. A second press and the light flashes. The third press flashes Morse Code for S.O.S. to signal for assistance.
Each of the three lights is made with a machined aluminum body. The large and mini versions also feature a lock-out tailcap that can prevent the light from accidental activation by rotating it a quarter turn.
The full-sized flashlight features a maximum 250 lumen brightness and dims to 25 lumens. It measures 9.1-inches long by 1.6 inches in diameter and weighs a mere 9.1 ounces. It runs for 3 hours and 15 minutes on high and more than 18 hours on low on three AA batteries, which are included. It is available in either black or red bodies.
The Mini Flashlight provides all of the same features as its big brother in a more compact size. It has a max brightness of 80 lumens and a dim mode of 15. It is only 4.5-inches long by 1.2-inches in diameter and weighs in at only 2.7 ounces. It runs for 2 hours on high and 9 hours and 25 minutes on low on a single AA battery, which is also included. It comes in black, red, blue, or green bodies.
The third light in the Nite Ize lineup is the Flashstick. This wand has a 60 lumen maximum brightness white LED bulb and lantern with a minimum brightness of 8 lumens. The real difference is the glowstick-like wand in place of the red safety light found on the other models. It comes in at 8.1-inches long by 1-inch in diameter and weighs only 2.8 ounces. It runs for 1 hour and 45 minutes on high and 8 and a half hours on low on a single AA battery, which is included. It comes in black and red bodies with red wands, blue body with a blue wand, and green body with a green wand. Check out the Nite Ize 3-in-1 LED Flashlights at your local Sportsman’s Warehouse store.
