Olight Warrior X Pro: $91 (25% Off)

olight warrior x pro 2250

Get one of Olight’s top flashlights for a deal today. With a maximum output of 2,250 lumens (and the ability to project it a whopping 600 m), the Warrior X Pro packs a heck of a punch. For most people, that level of output is overkill. But for those who need to sweep large expanses of nighttime (like hunters and search-and-rescue personnel), this kind of power can come in handy.

Those are pretty wild specs for a flashlight that weighs just 8.4 ounces and measures less than 6 inches in length. It runs on a 5,000mAh rechargeable battery. You can recharge it anywhere with a 12V USB outlet or recharger.
