Then there's those that just make me jump up and down and squee like an 8-year-old on Xmas morning.
The ZeroHour Flashlight is one of those that falls in the latter category.
The Kickstarter page is here and describes the end-product better than I ever could.
In a nutshell, it's a variable flashlight (delivering 1000 - that's one thousand) lumens at its highest setting and acts as a power supply for phones, tablets, and the like.
Mine arrived over the weekend.
My shouts of joy were probably heard across the state and I'm pretty sure I have freaked out my neighbors as I play with the light's ridiculously-bright strobe function.
- The ZeroHour is a beefy, squat light. Sits in the hand with a comfortable weight. Might be too big for someone with small hands.
- I believe non-Kickstarter purchases always come with lithium-ion batteries that can be recharged. It comes with a charger (both USB and AC), a carrying bag, a larger draw bag, a lanyard, and varying end-caps (closed cap, open cap, and - in some cases - a lanyard cap).
- The light has a nice, wide emitter dish and a burly-looking strike-bezel on the end. It's got a single Cree bulb that is blindingly-bright.
Certainly I'm not leaving this thing at home. I am too enamored with my shiny new toy to be apart from it for too long.
This might be the best flashlight I've ever had.
