Best Christmas Gifts for Dads Part 1
Shopping for your dad can be really tough so you find yourself Googling “presents for dads” just to find ideas. Believe me, I’ve done this several times myself. So we want to help you out a little bit! Since we’re flashlight enthusiasts I bet you can guess what we’ll be recommending. That’s right! An LED flashlight! This is a handy tool that no household should be without. Whether your dad likes to fix things around the house, enjoys outdoor activities, likes to tinker with a car or what have you, a flashlight is essential. It’s important to be able to see in dark places such as behind appliances, underneath cars, or even closets that have no light. It’s a practical tool that also has some unique and fun features that make it a great Christmas present.
Best LED Flashlights
So now that we’ve talked about why a flashlight is such a great present, let’s talk about some of the best LED flashlights that you can pick up for your dad today. In this blog we’ve listed three awesome flashlights that are useful and different so you can take a look and decide which you think your dad would like better.
Klarus XT11X - 3200 Lumen Tactical Flashlight
This is an amazing tactical flashlight because it’s compact but delivers a whopping 3200 lumens. As far as compact tactical lights go, this is our most powerful one. It features a deep orange peel textured reflector that helps to create a broader beam that's perfect for up-close work. However, you can still see far into the distance with its max beam throw of 283 meters. It features a triple switch design that includes dual tactical tail switches and a side switch that operate independently from the tail switches. Between all of these switches you have access to a momentary-on, One-Touch Turbo, One-Touch Low, One-Touch Strobe, a built-in memory function, and a lockout function.
The XT11X also features two programmable settings: the Tactical Setting and the Outdoor Setting. In the Tactical setting, the dual tail switches give you access to a momentary-on, a One-Touch Turbo and a One-Touch Strobe. In the Outdoor Setting, you have access to a momentary-on, a One-Touch Turbo, and a One-Touch Low using the tail switches. The side switch stays the same in both settings. With all of these features you really get a flashlight that you can tailor to yourself making it a great present. Not only that, it's compatible with multiple batteries and is USB rechargeable.

Klarus G10 - 1800 Lumen LED Flashlight
This is another compact flashlight that's small enough that you could carry in its holster or clip onto your pocket. It delivers up to 1800 lumens and features a broad beam that allows you to illuminate the area around you. The G10 has a side switch and a tail switch that operate independently and give you more options on how you'd like to use the flashlight. While both switches have access to a One-Touch Turbo, the side switch has a built-in memory function that will turn onto the last brightness level you used and the tail switch has access to a One-Touch Low. So you have everything you need with both switches. The G10 features 6 total outputs that include four brightness levels, a strobe mode, and an SOS mode so that you're prepared for anything.
The G10 is also compatible with multiple batteries, is USB rechargeable, features an Intelligent Charging System to ensure that charging is safe and efficient. It also features a charging/battery capacity indicator that you can refer to and see the status of the battery. This is a great flashlight to have around the house and is a flashlight that ay father will fall in love with after using for just a few minutes. Check out the Klarus G10.
Klarus XT1A - 1000 Lumen Pocket Flashlight
The next flashlight I want to talk about is a unique little pocket flashlight that's perfect for carrying every day. The Klarus XT1A is a little over 4 inches in length and it's perfect for carrying in your pocket. It delivers up to 1000 lumens which is really impressive for a pocket flashlight. It features a dual tail switch design making it easy to operate at any moment with a single hand.
Not only does the XT1A feature five different outputs including two flashing modes, it also features two programmable settings. In the Tactical Setting you have access to a One-Touch Turbo and a One-Touch Strobe. In the Outdoor Setting you have access to a One-Touch Turbo and a One-Touch Low. You can switch between these two settings at any given time making this pocket flashlight extremely versatile for any situation.
The XT1A is compatible with either a 14500 battery or an AA battery. This pocket flashlight includes a 14500 battery that's USB rechargeable. So when the battery is low you can take it out of the flashlight and charge it using any standard micro USB cable. The XT1A also features a battery capacity indicator so you can know how much charge your battery has left. If you're looking for a unique everyday carry flashlight then you found it in the Klarus XT1A.
