Packed inside a housing that's a little bit larger than your average tube of lip balm, Nitecore's LA10 is a versatile mini lantern that will surely be a quintessential piece in your outdoor carry. Versatility is the the LA10's strong suit with the ability to run for about 23 hours on just one AA battery, a magnetic tail cap to stick to any metal surface, and IPX6 water resistance. It works just like a stick of lip balm too. Twist the LA10 and the light extends to three modes: 10, 40, and 135 lumens.
