Coast HP3R Rechargeable LED Penlight: PDB TESTED No. 203

November 2016 PDB Tested, Product Roy Sparks

There are penlights, and then there is the HP3R Flashlight from Coast and I’m about to tell you what makes this one stand out from the rest. For starters, the Flex Charge Dual Power system means this light can be powered with either lithium or alkaline power and using a micro USB, you can recharge the batteries in the light while onboard or quickly swap out to alkaline when needed. With high (run time 1:30 hours) and low (run time 6 hours) modes and the twist focus that allows you to go from a flood to spot beam, this light at just under 6 inches in length and weighing in under 2 ounces is a supercharged penlight capable of anything.

With Coast’s commitment to quality, the HP3R Flashlight is impact-resistant, weather-resistant and its LED is virtually unbreakable, making it an ideal must-have for any boat. The HP3R Flashlight retails for $94.99 and is backed by Coast’s lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
