5 Reasons Why Gifting A Flashlight is a Bright Idea

Why do men love flashlights so much? Some men get excited about muscle cars, and some get excited about the power of a flashlight. Why?

  5. Flashlights are cool. “The advancement in flashlight innovation is exciting. What used to be a bright flashlight is now a low setting in today’s LED flashlights,” says Beau Shrum, CEO of Fenix Lighting. “And we’re not done seeing where flashlights will take us.
