Tools for RVers: IMPELtronics flashlight

Having a good flashlight in an RV is important, and even a couple of flashlights that serve different purposes is a good idea. Sometimes a flashlight can serve more than one purpose, as is the case with the IMPELtronics magnetic flashlight.

Ideal for your RV toolbox, this 4-LED flashlight has magnets on each end: the one on the body can hold the flashlight to a steel surface and pick up objects that weigh as much as 8 pounds, and the other can help pick up a metallic item you can’t reach or see by another method. What separates this unit from others is that the entire LED head extends 22 inches and flexes 360 degrees to put the light and its magnet where you need it.

The 4-LED head puts out a decent if not earth-shattering amount of light, and is compact and utilizes four LR44 button batteries to power it. The exterior of the light is made completely of aluminum, and is available in a variety of colors. It costs $20.99 and can be ordered directly from the manufacturer, IMPELtronics.
