Does Anybody Really Ever Use Strobe Mode???


Jan 3, 2009
Do you ever use strobe mode, and if so, what do you use it for?

The first question I usually get asked by non-flashaholics is what is the strobe for?. To be honest I dont know......improptu rave dance parties maybe!?!?!:confused: I find it a bit of a nuisance on my lights that dont have the strobe mode hidden. I have never found a practical use for it either. Is there one? I have read that it is used for self defence, but has anybody seriously ever used it for self defence? I might use it at work to attract attention if I was hurt, but waving the flashlight would achieve the same effect.

Please, somebody enlighten me!
