What's important about being the first die-cast flashlight on the market? Well, a few things. First of all, the unibody aluminum construction makes for an incredibly strong body while cutting down the weight and creating a compact form factor. You also get better heat dissipation and improved ergonomics. 

The compact design also allows it to be charged by just two 18650 batteries that will power the ultra-bright 1000 lumen beam. At its maximum brightness you'll get about an hour and thirty minutes of use and at its lowest setting you'll get up to 260 hours of battery power.

$78, available now at
