  • What Kind of Flashlight Is That

  • Last Weekend I took my mother to the airport.

  • My mom doesnt travel much so I had to show her how to get her boarding pass and walk her to security to enter the gate.

  • Airport security has gotten very strict over the last decade.

  • Watching everyone taking off their shoes, opening their suitcases up, and emptying their pockets, I noticed a man pull out a flashlight that was also a multi-tool.

  • Of course the TSA had to confiscate his flashlight because it had a pocket knife as one of the multi-tools.

  • Looking at this all in one flashlight multi-tool, I thought it was a pretty unique idea.

  • I have not seen too many of those before.

  • Found a Flashlight Multi-Tool

  • After I saw my mother off through security I needed to make a stop at the grocery store to get some supplies for the week.

  • Thinking about that flashlight multi-tool I decided to see if they had one available.

  • The only one I could find was fairly cheap and looked like it was cheaply made also.

  • I decided to buy it just to see how useful it really was.

  • Is This Flashlight Really Useful

  • This flashlight multi-tool came with a screwdriver and also a small knife.

  • After opening the package, I could confirm just how cheap this flashlight was.

  • I put a battery into it and powered on the small LED flashlight.

  • The light output was alright not very impressive, but it is a small light so I did not expect too much.

  • The screwdriver and knife also seemed a bit wobbly and not tightly attached like they probably should have been.

  • So using the screwdriver was a bit challenging because every time I went to turn the screw the screwdriver just folded in on itself.

  • Now the knife on the other hand was able to cut through small things well.

  • It could have been a bit sharper, but it seemed good considering what I had paid for it.

  • Should You Buy A Multi-Tool Flashlight

  • If most flashlight multi-tools are similar to the one I bought, I would just pass on them all together and buy each tool separately.

  • Spending almost the same if not a little more for a separate flashlight that is more in likely brighter, a separate screwdriver that will work, and a knife that is probably sharper will benefit you much more in the long run.
