No one likes to think about having any type of emergency while out and about in their car. Unfortunately, life happens, which means, emergency’s do too. And unfortunately, they tend to occur more often than not, at night. We have a lot of country roads around here too. That means no road shoulders and no lights. With a lot of tree cover, you would be amazed how dark it can be when you have broken down. I am thrilled that I was afforded the opportunity to review TangsFire’s LingsFire® 26 LED Car Survival Emergency Zoomable Flashlight in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. In this set you will get the flashlight, a battery charger and 2 18650 rechargeable batteries. It only uses one, so you will be able to carry another charged battery with you. Inside the battery compartment of this flashlight, you will find a triple AAA battery adapter. If your 18650’s aren’t charged or run out of charge, you can then add 3 AAA batteries into the adapter and that will work perfectly too.
My poor son had a long day at work yesterday. He has an older truck, because it’s his work truck. His job he was working was also about 5 hours away. He had two emergencies on the way home last night. The first emergency happened when he still had his helper in the car. His alternator died. He and his helper can work on cars, fortunately. They were able to get a replacement and get it installed. He got his helper dropped off at about 2:30 a.m. and then had to head home. Around 5 a.m. he hit a deer on one of those dark country roads. People may think nothing will ever happen to them, but my son had a roadside emergency twice in one night. You always need to be prepared. One of the most simple ways to prepare is to make sure you have lighting. Proper lighting roadside can keep you from getting hit by another car for one thing. It could keep you from getting hurt if you needed to step out of your car. There are many reasons why you need to carry a source of lightening in your vehicle. And for the unthinkable. If someone not so nice tries to take advantage of you while you’re broken down, you could use this light to defend yourself, if you had no other resource. The end is metal, so it could be used.
This light is multifunctional. It can be used as a regular flashlight. It also has the LEDs down it’s side. The regular flashlight has two functions. Press the on button once, it comes on as a steady regular flashlight. Press it again, it’s a strobing flashlight. If you compress the on button again, it goes to the white LED lights on the side of this flashlight. A fourth time, turns on the red LEDS in flashing mode only on the side of this flashlight. The end of this flashlight has a magnet and a bar to pull out if you need to hang this light up. The magnet is pretty strong too. It did not mar the paint on my car either. The charger included has the micro USB cod included with it for charging. Almost everyone has a micro USB 12V adapter or plug built into their cars nowadays. So, even on the go, these batteries can easily be recharged. When you break down on a road with no shoulder. a light like this is imperative. Since it can be put on the side of your car, the lights will notify cars to safely pass you on the road. This could really help you from getting hit. I am absolutely thrilled with this light. I really feel that every car needs at least one.
