|PMY Tested: Crew-Light LED Pocket Flashlight|
I can’t refrain from gushing over the Crew-Light, a small, lightweight flashlight that’s perfect for boaters. I left it on for four days straight and it was still putting out enough soft, bluish-white light to check a chart or negotiate a deck. Such is the low-draw joy of LED clusters, not to mention the bulb’s practically unbreakable nature and nearly endless working life. The Crew-Light’s developer--clearly a boater--has given this baby a tough ABS body, simple twist-on switch, wide flood beam, and waterproofing good enough to let you tow it lit across Long Island Sound. And he or she is determined to make LED goodness affordable to the masses by selling it exclusively online for just $19.95, including four AAA batteries.
