Nebo iPROTEC Torch Range – Are these torches worth buying?

Over the past couple of months, I’ve had the opportunity to EDC a range of Nebo flashlights and they have all proven to be great little EDC torches with more than adequate lumen outputs. Special thanks to Nebo Flashlights in the UK for providing the product samples.

The technical specs and data for each are provided below.
iPROTEC 220

It has 5 different light modes:

High – 220 Lumens, 4 hour runtime, 138 meter beam
Medium – 110 Lumens, 8 hour runtime, 60 meter beam

Strobe – 220 Lumens, 72 hour runtime, 138 meter beam
S.O.S – 220 Lumens, 72 hour runtime, 138 meter beam

Operation

Rear-positioned ON/OFF button with Soft Touch Technology – great for holding the torch in the tactical position.
Powered by 3 AAA batteries which are included; it’s great that Nebo decided to go with this type of battery as it is readily available as opposed to some proprietary battery or one that is hard to obtain.

Life Gear Products Review

Too often many people go off into the bush without carrying basic necessities such as food and water but even worse they fail to carry survival gear with them or even any way of signalling or calling for help!

If you haven’t heard about Life Gear before, they’re a North American company based in California that is “dedicated to working hands-on at every level to develop and promote innovative everyday products engineered with life saving capabilities.” At this stage they have several different lineups of torches (Americans call them flashlights) which are designed for everyday usage but have rescue and emergency features built into them which come in real handy.

It is estimated that 10.5 million people on 6 continents used Life Gear products in one year through the efforts of strategic partners such as the Red Cross and Salvation Army.

So let’s take a look at the product samples that we received. First we have these LED glow sticks which […]
