Link dual-output LED flashlight, by ICON

You never know when you might need a flashlight, whether it's an anticipated power outage due to an impending hurricane, blizzard or ice storm, or if you just happen to drop something down a small and dark area within your office. Luckily, if you have this flashlight on hand, you can quickly illuminate the area to find your way out of the dark or find what you're looking for.

The Link has a modern design - it has a nice grip to it and includes a fully integrated carabiner clip, and is solid enough due to its aluminum frame to not shatter when you drop it. The flashlight has two settings, allowing up to 50 lumens of light on its high setting. You can also click the back part to drop down to a low setting of about 6 lumens. The Link creates LED light, is powered by a single AA battery, and is waterproof up to one meter for 30 minutes. The light weight (3.1 ounces) makes it easy to clip onto a back pack or put in your glove compartment or laptop bag for easy access whenever you need some quick light.
