The HOTO Flashlight Lite is a handheld flashlight, strobe light for emergencies, camping lantern, and lamp all combined into one sleek little device.

A flashlight is an invaluable tool for many situations, and nobody would argue against that. But a versatile flashlight, with additional support features, has the potential to transform your experiences — whether you’re indoors or out. The HOTO Flashlight Lite, for example, is a variety of lighting devices all rolled into one sleek, battery-powered unit. It’s a tactical and handheld flashlight, a camping lantern, an emergency strobe light, and a standard lamp, for use just about anywhere. It offers 1,000 Lumens of brightness, across five modes, including an SOS mode, and up to 24 hours of use on a single charge. The 2,600mAH battery can be recharged via USB-C, so power banks, power stations, and your average USB-C adapter.

A front-end tube zoom allows you to swap effortlessly between a spotlight and floodlight with a maximum distance of 200 meters. Moreover, a diffuser allows you to soften the light for used as ambient lighting or as a signal light when aimed upwards. Most importantly, it’s super easy to use with a two-button control — power versus SOS mode. It weighs just under 6 ounces too, and fits into most pockets. The aluminum shell is durable, anti-sweat protected and anti-corrosive, and the grip feels great on the palm. It even comes with a multifunctional hook so you can hang it from a belt loop or tent loop.
