The silence of a winter evening spent in nature; the absence of camping crowds and flying insects; the chance to play in the snow. These are just a few of the many delights awaiting you in winter camping. Now we’re not here to make winter camping seem like a piece of cake—it does take quite a bit more planning than summer camping, simply because you have to take freezing cold weather into account.
Industry Outsider recently published a glowing review of COAST´s HP7R LED rechargeable flashlight. Industry Outsider is an online magazine devoted to outdoor gear reviews. Site founder and reviewer Brian seemed most impressed with the LED flashlight’s extra batteries (Coast packs each HP7R with two lithium ion battery packs), as well as the versatility that the Flex Charge Dual Power system provides. Brian’s review also praises the overall qualities of the HP7R—being the self-acclaimed flashlight geeks that he is, Brian knows that having a flashlight that is compact, powerful, versatile, and durable is important to people who use their equipment daily, “sometimes in life or death situations,” as he writes in the review.
Other positive features highlighted in the Industry Outsider review include the ergonomic design, the consistent and powerful light output, and our innovative Flex Charge Dual Power system. Since, as Brian points out in his review, “a flashlight with dead batteries is pretty useless,” we’ve built this flashlight for power versatility. Each HPR7 kit comes with two rechargeable lithium ion battery packs, a battery cartridge with four AAA Duracells included, a USB charging cable, a wall outlet adapter, and a 12V DC charger for plugging into your car’s cigarette lighter.
