These extra-bright flashlights work great in an emergency kit

It's always a good idea to keep a flashlight in an easy-to-reach place in case your house is rendered powerless, or in the event of an emergency. Stay prepared for emergencies with this 2-pack of UltraBright 500-Lumen Tactical Military Flashlights, available now in the Boing Boing Store for $17.99.

These LED torches have an adjustable aperture, so you can illuminate wide areas, or focus your beam to shine up to a mile away. They feature a blinking SOS mode in case you get stranded somewhere in the dark, and are built from lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum to stand up to the elements.

They come with a durable carrying case, and run on a single (not included) AA battery each. Grab two UltraBright 500-Lumen Tactical Military Flashlights here for $17.99.
