E+LITE

RECOIL OFFGRID - - Pocket Preps -

Un­like other lights in this guide, the e+LITE wasn’t in­tended to be your pri­mary light source — in­stead, it works a backup to any other head­lamp or flash­light. The tiny size, long shelf life, and wa­ter­proof stor­age cap­sule make it ideal for stash­ing in any emer­gency kit. The ro­tary switch al­lows ac­cess to five modes; thank­fully, Petzl in­cluded “OFF” po­si­tions on both ends, mak­ing the red light ac­ces­si­ble on its own. The unique ball-and-socket mount al­lows the light to be pointed in any di­rec­tion, in­clud­ing side-to-side.

PROS:

Light­weight, com­pact, and eas­ily stowed de­sign makes it a great backup head­lamp

Amaz­ingly durable — wa­ter­proof, tem­per­a­ture-re­sis­tant from -22 to 140 de­grees F, and shelf­stable for 10 years

Strap cinch in­cludes a whis­tle for emer­gency sig­nal­ing

Low-out­put flood beam makes this most use­ful as a closerange light

Re­place­ment coin-cell lithium bat­ter­ies might be tough to find in an emer­gency
