17 September 2009 @ 16:00Light for Life Flashlight UC3.400
I will admit, I’m also a flashlight geek, and my current favorite flashlight that I own is the Inova X5MT-WT X5 (Amazon | Amazon UK), but when I read about the 5.11 Light for Life Flashlight UC3.400 that requires no batteries (ever) and recharges in only 90 seconds, it became the next flashlight on my wishlist.
In only 90 seconds, the UC3.400 Flashlight will go from dead flat to a full charge. This quick recharge allows the light to always be ready. No need to carry multiple flashlights, purchase multiple chargers, or have to remember to charge your light after a long shift. In just 90 seconds, your Light for Life™ UC3.400 will be fully charged and ready to produce another 120 minutes of light. Whereas most flashlights begin to lose strength after you initially turn them on, the Light for Life last for 60 minutes at 90 lumens, cycling down to 25 lumens for 30 minutes and finally 15 lumens for 30 minutes.
Since the Light for Life uses no batteries, you won’t be troubled with the typical problem of rechargeables — memory and degradation. The Flashpoint™ Power Technology system is rated for 50,000 charge/discharge cycles with virtually no degradation. That’s a charge a day for more than 135 years!
