EDC Flashlight Review - NEBO HIGHBEAM

Every once in a while, you see a new product that is just so innovative and useful that you have to get one. The HIGHBEAM LED Flashlight by NEBO is just such a product.

On it's own, it's just an ordinary flashlight. It 2.4" long and about 0.87" in diameter, making it fairly small. The 35 Lumen LED also isn't much to talk about. However, it is still a remarkable light and let me tell you why.

The NEBO HIGHBEAM also comes in a variety of colors!
First off, it uses an internal rechargeable battery, so you can forget about ever having to purchase replacement batteries. Not only that, but charging the light for only 2 hours gives you 6 hours of continuous light!

I left out the feature that makes this light really shine. The HIGHBEAM also has a feature that will make sure that the battery is ALWAYS charged. The end of the light fits into a standard 12V outlet (aka cigarette lighter). You know, that outlet that's in your car and doesn't get used a whole lot. Sticking one in your car ensures that it will always be charged, and that you'll always have it when you leave the house, if you leave in you car.

When charging, an LED in
the HIGHBEAM glows red.
Having a flashlight in your car can be very practical. Personally, there have been many times when I've dropped something and it's fallen under a seat or rolled away somewhere. I could have used a flashlight to find it, but I didn't have one. The cabin light in a car often doesn't work well enough to light up those dark areas that seem to be magnetic to dropped objects.

With the HIGHBEAM, you don't have to be stuck in that situation again.

Did I mention that this flashlight is also very affordable? With the functionality that you get, there's little reason not to get a HIGHBEAM or two and stick one in each car that you own. It's a great and simple way to have a light source with you whenever you're on the road

What do you guys think? Have any of you had any experience with the HIGHBEAM? Let me know in the comments below.
