I've got a bunch of really badass really cheap flashlight you guys look attoday so don't go awaywhat's up guys welcome back to the PilotPatriot channel.
Ive got a bunch of reallynice flashlights for you guys to look at todaythe best thing about them is they're all really really cheapif y'all watch many of my videos you probably already know my philosophy onflashlights and that's you can never have too many flashlights.
But I'm alsonot the kind of guy that's going to go out and spend a hundred bucks on aflashlightespecially if it's not a weapon light or something like that.
Now all of theseflashlights here are Luxpro flashlightsif you do much shopping at lowe's home improvement you've probably seen thesebefore I personally can't hardly walk in there without picking one up there socheap and they're such good quality.
I just can't help myself.
They make a wide variety of different types offlashlights and different sizes, different power levels which is a reallygood thing because we all know that no one flashlight can accomplish everythingand this spread that I have in front of you today is a good example of thatnow i'll go ahead and show you a few features that are pretty standard acrossall these.
They are metal and they all have this nice black anodized coating asyou can see this one is starting to wear off a little bit but that's because thisparticular one gets a lot of usethey all have this nice rubberized coating on the grip.
It has a pretty cooldiamond pattern and this lets you get a really nice grip on the flashlightmost of them also have a lanyard just another form of retention so you're notgoing to drop your flashlightsmost of them except for the big boy over there have a clicky button on the tailof it and all of them can tail stand, I know that's important for a lot of guysNow let's go ahead and get into each individual flashlightthis is the big boy right here, I actually just got this one today and Ialready love itthis one usually runs around 30 bucks.
This is the LP490, the packaging onthis one said that is 650 lumens have tested this outsidealongside another flashlight thatis around 650 lumens and i'm going to say that this is definitely the 650lumen one.
A couple of features that this big boy has that theother ones don't, Its got some really aggressive knurling on the sides.
The big onealso has the on/off switch up here near the head unlike the other ones and Ilike I said every flashlight has a different purpose this is going to be mytruck flashlight and there are a lot of reasons for that like I said it's 650lumensit also has a nice large smooth reflector which means it's going tothrow a beam a really long ways that makes this a really good searchlightso if you're riding around in your vehicle at night and your searching outthe window for somethingthis is going to be the perfect flashlight for that.
Maybe your dog ranaway an you're looking for him.
For you hunters out thereI'm a big deer hunter so, you can actually spotlight with this bad boy andI'm not advocating poaching or anything like that i'm just talking aboutscouting.
All you country boys know what spotlighting is.
And this big boy isgoing to make a really good beat stick to if you need to use it for thatnow i'm gonna go ahead and show you the modes.
The modes are going to be thesame across all these flashlightsthey all have a high, low, and a strobenow when you look at the next one, this one like said does have a lot of useon itthis is a really good general purpose flashlight this is the LP600 you canusually get this one for about twenty four booksthis one is 320 lumens and that is plenty bright enough for most anythingyou're going to need a flashlight for like i said this one has an orange peelreflector which means that instead of a really tight beam this is going to havea lot more flood to it.
And this is a pretty good-sized flashlight about thesize of your hand, feels good in your handit's a good flashlight.
The next one is the LP290Now this one is a good work or pocket flashlightthis one right here was like 16 bucks, you can't be that.
This one has a pretty goodlumen count this is 230 lumens.
230 lumens is very bright that's going to accomplish most everything youwant it to.
This one also obviously has a clip on it which is a really nicefeature on a flashlightI would prefer a clip on almost any flashlightsexcept for maybe the big guy but maybe even on that, you could clip it to your beltor something that'd be pretty coolnow this one is almost exactly the same as far as the size obviously this onedoesn't have a pocket clip and this one has a little bit lower lumen count thesetwo right here actually came in a kit togetherI got both of these in a pack together for like twenty two dollars.
This largerone here is the LP280I don't even know if they make this one anymore I've had this for a while butthis one is like 180 lumensI don't know if I could call this an EDC flashlight it's just a little bit toobig for what I like to keep it in my pocket but still a good choice.
Now this guy is definitely an EDC light, look how small this thing is that it's areally good size for EDC for fitting in your pocket the only bad thing about itis it doesn't have the pocket clip.
I do think it may be possible to take theclip off of this guy and put it on this onemaybe we'll try that but I actually carried this as an EDC light for a whilethe reason I stopped is because it doesn't have a clip-on it.
I liketo have a clip, especially on my EDC lights.
This little guy is 90 lumens and for an EDC light i think somewhere between 90and a hundred and twenty lumens is almost perfect especially if you're likeme and you have all these other flashlights as backups in your truck orin your toolbox or at your house.
For smaller tasks or just getting aroundthis is a good flashlight for that.
Anyway guys the message for today isdon't go out there and spend thousands of dollars on a bunch of flashlightsthese are all really good quality flashlights i'm going to say they'rejust as good as those more expensive flashlights and it's going to save you alot of moneyyou can probably get all five of theseflashlights for whatever the price of your favorite Surefire flashlight is.
A lot of times in life we have to choose between quality or quantitythis is not one of those times, with this you get quantity and qualityTake some advice from the pilot patriot I'll see you guys next time.
