This Great EDC Flashlight Is on Sale Now

In an emergency, your phone is no stand-in for a real, quality flashlight. Anker’s LC90 has 900 lumens, five output modes and charges with micro USB.


Before the advent of the smartphone, with its built-in flash, flashlights were an everyday essential. They were kept on bedside tables, in pantry drawers, one in the garage and one in the glovebox — in an emergency, there was no substitute. That’s still true though, despite our complacent notion that a cell phone’s light is a viable stand-in.

It’s time to give back the flashlight its due, and if that means a restock, then Anker’s LC90 is a solid choice. The LC90, currently on sale at Amazon, is super-bright, with an adjustable output of up to 900 lumens that can light up roughly an eighth of a mile’s worth of distance. The tactical flashlight comes with five different modes that include three different brightnesses, a flashing strobe and SOS. Gone are the days of hoarding AAA Duracells — the six-hour battery on this flashlight charges with a micro USB cable. If you need any further convincing, check with the almost 2,000 customers who have purchased and reviewed the Anker LC90 to make it one of top-100 sports and outdoors products on Amazon.
