having a flashlight that doubles as a portable battery for your USB-powered devices is cool, but one that does that and is modular and tactical really had our attention 100 percent. for starter, the ZeroHour Tactical USB Battery Backup Flashlight that we are referring to is a real-deal tactical flashlight with all the rugged qualities (and perhaps more) you can expect from a tactical flashlight, including IPX8 rating for water-resistance (submerge up to a meter), and dust- and shockproof, to take on any beatings you can throw at it. as a flashlight, it is capable of emitting up to 1,000 lumen from a Made in USA CREE XM-L U3 LED module, offers four brightness levels (20, 400, 800 and 1000 Lumens, respectively), and has Strobe and SOS functionalities to boot.

however, it has one more tricks up its end cap: unscrew the said cap and you will be greeted with dual USB ports capable of juicing multiple smartphones or tablets simultaneously – thanks to a 10,000 mAh power pack. however, being modular, you can choose to remove the juice pack part if you just need a flashlight, or vice versa if you only wants a portable battery on your outing. to top it off, it has a super cool, aesthetically-pleasing body constructed from aircraft-grade aluminum and a stainless steel bezel that doubles as a glass breaker (or some say self-defense) for those emergency situations. seriously, with all those features packed into one neat package, we can’t see what’s not to love about the ZeroHour Tactical USB Battery Backup Flashlight.
