Anker’s flashlights have been a huge hit with our readers over the years, and now, you can get the newest, smallest model for just $9 with exclusive promo code KINJA1426.


The IPX5 water-resistant LC30 puts out 300 lumens, which makes it the dimmest flashlight in Anker’s lineup, but that’s still far brighter than the 50 or so lumens you’d get from the flashlight on your phone. The trade-off is size; it’s tiny enough to fit in your pocket, and wouldn’t take up much space in your car’s glove box either if you wanted one around for emergencies.

Interestingly for an Anker product, it the LC30 uses AAA batteries rather than a built-in rechargeable, but of course, you can always just buy rechargeable AAAs. Today’s $10 list price is already $3 less than usual, but our code will save you an extra dollar.
