Practical Christmas Gifts: Let there be light

The latest flashlights are the brightest {practical Christmas gifts}

Continuing our Practical Christmas Gifts category here on Hoboken411 – are products we love: LED Flashlights.

While everyone and their brother thinks they have good flashlights on their stupid mobile phones – nothing beats a nice CREE LED flashlight. They come in all sizes for all situations.

Let me run down three today. For various budgets and situations.

ThruNite TN4A

thrunite-tn4aWe love ThruNite flashlights. We have several.

However, for a long time, they required expensive 18650 batteries. Expensive – but designed for high-power devices. There is a time and place for those. But impractical for most. And costly.

Enter the ThruNite TN4A. Very bright (1200 lumens), but uses ordinary AA batteries. Under $50 and worth every penny.

Palm-sized, and available in different color temperatures – this is one of the best “all around” flashlights you can buy.

If you only had to pick ONE for your apartment or home – this would be it.

Perfect gift – or stocking stuffer. Your friends would thank you!

ThruNite Ti4 Pen Light

thrunite-ti4For just about 20 bucks, you can pick up a very compact ThruNite Ti4 pen light.

Running on two AAA batteries – and reaching 250 lumens output – this small flashlight has several ideal uses.

Your car glove box or center console. Doesn’t take up a lot of room, yet provides ample light when needed.

Also – a good idea to throw one of these in your desk drawer, backpack or briefcase (does anyone use briefcases anymore?)

Or you can be geeky like us. In addition to the pocket weapons we carry at all times – we also keep one of these handy too.

Power outage? Instantly accessible light on your person.

Perfectly practical.

You want bright? Olight X7 Marauder

olight-x7-flashlightDo you want the brightest?

Check out the Olight X7 Marauder.

Using the latest CREE XHP 70 LED technology, this beast reaches 9000 lumens.

You can even use the strobe mode to practically stun anyone trying to attack you, too!

For under $300 bucks – you can get everything you need for this bad boy.

Batteries, charger, and convenient carrying case.

We’d still recommend a second set of 18650 batteries – as they do not charge fast – and are not readily available at CVS or Rite Aid.

Be the king of your block the next time the power goes out!

“See” you guys later!
