In its compact form, the Flashback Mini acts as a flashlight. When fully deployed from its telescoping aluminum body, it's a lantern capable of lighting up an area about 15 feet in any direction. It is capped on either side with rubberized plastic ABS ends, which further adds to its durability. Its top cap includes a steel D-ring so that the lantern can be hung up. Its Cree LED is powered by four AAA batteries and features a digital locking switch, which keeps itself from turning on when stuffed into your pack. When the switch is activated, each press rotates it through high, medium, low, and strobe modes.
Pros: Two lights in one, solid build, weather resistant
Cons: Top D-ring can be hard to pull out
