When it comes to EDC, Tactica are one of our favourite brands here at The Coolector and with good reason. The robustness, versatility and high quality performance of their wares is second to none so, when we saw they’d launched a Kickstarter campaign, we inevitably sat up and took notice. Especially when the products were as cool as the F.100 Flashlight & Powerbank. If you’re looking to round out your EDC line up this Fall, you might have just found the last two pieces of the puzzle and it is a versatile and powerful flashlight built from the ground up for your next adventure.
Boasting a high-powered 1000 lumen CREE LED, fast charging enabled, magnetic lanyard, and an adaptable mounting system, the Tactica F.100 Flashlight & Powerbank is a powerful performer and it’s not hard to see why it has already taken the crowdfunding platform by storm and flown past its funding target. These small but mighty pocket accessories are the sort of thing you can take with you anywhere and they will likely come in handy dozens of times a day. Available for the bargain price of $69 during the Kickstarter campaign, you’ll be adding a cornerstone to your everyday carry without having to break the bank – what’s not to like?
The Flashlight But Better
Needless to say, a flashlight in and of itself isn’t revolutionary but the Tactica F.100 might just be. It is unique yet instantly familiar and this cracking bit of EDC can really add a lot of functionality to your line up. Tactica have put a lot of work into making sure that the F.100 fits in with your lifestyle, from carrying it in your bag, to looping it on a belt, to hanging it in your tent. It is capable of throwing out 1000 lumens to light up your night, charge itself quickly and even keep your tech juiced.
The Tactica F.100 Flashlight & Powerbank on Kickstarter (from $69) could be a life-saver out in the wild if your phone battery is about to die as it can help charge it back up again. It is equipped with a USB-C port under the tail cap, so it can deliver a 5V 1A supply to your tech. It has rapid charging capabilities and you can charge your flashlight’s battery 50% in 30 minutes to make sure it’s always ready when you need it. One of the stand out features of this fantastic accessory is its intuitive magnetic mounting system which is powered by strong rare-earth neodymium magnets. The holder easily snaps onto any steel surface making the F100 at home, from the fridge to the workshop shelves and everything in between.
