Anyone who’s camped far from the blinding radiance of city lights can attest to just how dark it can get in the backcountry. Granted, in the open areas, the stars and moon illuminate the world like you’ve never seen, but when you’re under the canopy of thick pine trees or a veil of black clouds, you can’t see your own hand in front of your face. It is for this reason that quality flashlights, headlamps, and lanterns are crucial. I’ve had the opportunity to toy around with and test a few such products from Energizer, a company known for long-lasting electronics, and today we’ll shed some light (pun intended) on the efficiency of two of the company’s newest products: the Fusion 3-in-1 Light and the Fusion Pop-Up Lantern.
The 3-in-1 is the next level in flashlights. Utilizing the standard flashlight shape, the light incorporates several great features without giving up packability or adding weight. This LED powered light has a distance of 1000 feet, non-slip rubber grip, brightness control, and a hands-free tripod stand.
The 3-in-1 is a flashlight, of course, but its head actually pivots 90-degrees, as well. Also, the handle is comprised of another light protected by a hard casing that offers an additional 100 lumens of range for when more light is needed. Furthermore, the body has two legs that fold out to make a tripod when you need both hands to work. The light offers 100 hours of battery life, water and impact resistance, and even has brightness control (just hold the On button to dim the light.)
The 3-in-1 comes with a $24.99 price tag, which is not a lot to ask, considering the great features the light possesses. If you’re in the market for a flashlight, but wouldn’t mind one that can do a little more than your standard issue, the Fusion 3-in-1 is definitely worth a second look.
Fusion Pop-Up Lantern
Also offered by Energizer, this lantern creates 360-degrees of LED luminance in any situation. The lantern is collapsible, which saves battery and space when needed, but it’s also water resistant, too, which is nice when conditions are a bit wetter than you might anticipate. Furthermore, the lantern comes with a durable rubber handle so you can hang it from a hook, tree branch, or carry it by hand or gear loop.
Like the 3-in-1, the Pop-Up lantern offers 100 hours of battery life on AA batteries, so you won’t have to worry about replacing the batteries for a while. Also, like the 3-in-1, it features brightness control, rubber grips, and three LED bulbs. At $19.99, the lantern is reasonably priced, so it makes a great addition to your gear list without breaking the bank.
Energizer knows how to get a lot of battery life and the lights outlined above are no exception. 100 hours of worry-free brightness will make overnight trips to the backcountry a little more safe and comfortable when you have the efficiency of the Energizer Fusion 3-in-1 and Pop-Up lantern with you. They make great additions to your camping gear, but also great stocking stuffers for the outdoorsman in your life this season!
