Sometimes you just need a dependable, handy light source. From examining a hornet’s nest above the garage, to directing your family to safety in an emergency, there are thousands of potential uses for an LED Flashlight. G30 and G25—these are the model numbers of two of our most popular LED torches. Below, we compare and contrast the two models, to give you an idea of which one might be better for your needs.

Right of the top, we can see a big difference in the beam distance for each LED flashlight. G30 blasts more than 300 feet farther than G25 can. On the other hand, the G30 weighs roughly twice as much as the G25. All that heft does deliver more flexible performance, though; the G30 has an easy-twist bezel to dial between a floodlight and a highly focused spotlight, while the G25 offers only one single beam option, a spotlight with a focused central circle of light.
Both flashlights share some qualities, however. They both require two AA batteries. They’re both boast lightweight aluminum casings, and both models are impact- and water-resistant. Finally, COAST Products’ lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship covers both G30 and the G25 LED flashlights.
