Thread: Looking for flashlight with charging cradle

  1. #1

    Default Looking for flashlight with charging cradle

    I want a flashlight for my truck. It would be connected all the time in the charging cradle, so I need something that can handle being always connected (I know laptops tend to kill the battery when you do that).

    Is there something like this available? There are so many different models in the forums it's very hard to search

    Thanks

    how big do you want the light to be?


    The Magcharger is a very nice light, it's got a cradle that is easily mounted in a truck (we have one mounted in a ford explorer at work). I also have one mounted to my desk.


    the other smaller option would be some of the lights from Streamlight, http://www.streamlight.com/product/class.aspx?cid=2
    If it ain't bright, It ain't right!

    Streamlight Strion would be a good choice.

    My friend wanted a light for the same location, in his truck. He does a lot of jobs on the highway and wanted something tough too. I recommended the Pelican 7060. He thanks me often and has told me he has dropped it about ten times to no effect. He also bought the orange cone for traffic signalling.

    It is designed for police and has a charger that can be mounted in a vehicle. The charger locks onto the flashlight and the light can be be removed by yanking it out. Pelican 7060 You'll also need a car power adapter
