NEBO Torchy High Lumen Rechargeable Flashlight
For pilots or mechanics requiring extra illumination when working on an airplane at night or trying to inspect equipment in dark conditions, this compact flashlight from NEBO can be slipped into a pocket and kept on hand whenever the need arises. Measuring less than 3 inches in length, the Torchy’s small size belies its very strong output. Its highest setting allows it to provide a whopping 1,000 lumens for 30 seconds, meaning you’ll be able to see 130 meters ahead of you. When that kind of power isn’t required, users can rely on the Torchy’s three other settings, the lowest of which allows the flashlight to last for six hours. The flashlight also comes with a strobe mode.
The Torchy, priced at $29.97, is made to withstand tough conditions, with an exterior made of anodized aircraft-grade aluminum that is waterproof. It includes a steel pocket clip that can easily adhere to a pocket or bag strap. It can be recharged via its magnetic base, which serves as its charging port and connects to a USB cable.Learn more at AircraftSpruce.com.
