  • Stanley’s made a terrific little flashlight that’s really bright, extra convenient to use and stingy with batteries too
  • That said though I still do recommend this travel flashlight to everyone, as it’s not at all bad despite those problems

      TRUSTWORTHY

      all reviews
      I was shopping in a hardware store a couple of weeks ago when my eye fell on a rack with a couple of little travel flashlights near the counter. A number of them were from good and really reputable brands, but one of them really caught my eye – Stanley’s black and yellow Mini Tripod Flashlight.

      Now, many other flashlight brands make good travel flashlights, too, and some of them, like Mini Maglites for instance, are really terrific products and are maybe even more famous and reputable than Stanley. But I was willing to give this one a try because of some of its terrific features, and because Stanley is itself not exactly


      disreputable or unproven or anything like that.

      As it turns out my trust was well placed. Stanley’s made a terrific little flashlight that’s really bright, extra convenient to use and stingy with batteries too.

      First up is how well it lights up an area. It’s a little flashlight but it features a very bright white LED bulb that really works wonderfully, spreading widely without becoming too diffuse or anything of that sort.

      Next are its special features. Now other little flashlights are just as good too; Stanley doesn’t have a lock on that formula. Thing is, this one comes with three little swing-out legs so it can be placed upright, and its head ...


      • swivels downwards; it can be rotated 45 degrees to help you fix flat tires or to otherwise increase convenience for you. I’ve had to use it a couple of times in emergency situations and it’s proven really easy to use without me having to hold it in my mouth or something like that. And it also comes with a key ring at the end for easy attachment to a set of keys or a chain. Not many other little flashlights can boast of anything similar.

        Some features could use some improving. For one, the ends of the tripod legs are nearly flush with the end of the body of the flashlight when

        you swing them out, which means that if you have any chains or keys attached to the key ring, the flashlight may not stand perfectly. Maybe longer legs, or telescoping legs, would help. Next, the paint on the legs has begun to flake off after a couple of weeks in the depths of my bags, due to contact with other objects. Maybe Stanley shouldn’t have painted the legs at all?

        That said though I still do recommend this travel flashlight to everyone, as it’s not at all bad despite those problems. You might never know when you’ll be in need of a little extra light – as well as a little extra convenience.
