My Review of Victorinox 4.8 Watt LED Flashlight – ’08 Closeout
June 11, 2010
The Victorinox 4.8 Watt LED flashlight fits easily in a jacket or pack pocket and provides effective illumination to 225 feet.
If it’s got a Cree Bulb Get it
Pros: Long battery life, Bright, Durable
Cons: Heavy, No Beam Adjustment
Best Uses: Hiking, Day trip, Backpacking, Car Camping
Describe Yourself: Casual/ Recreational
I picked up one that looks just like it but its got CREE technology (Cree L.E.D.) bulb. It is easily 3-4 times brighter than the normal mini mag flashlight. It is similar in weight but is way way brighter. I end up throwing it into my pack as a backup to my Petzl Tikka and find myself using it more. It’s great for peaking into rock crevices and caves and I take it every morning and night on walks with the dogs. It’s a cool little light and I’m sure it will be around for many years.
