Lighting the Way, the Inova T3R Rechargeable LED Flashlight

I have had the amazing opportunity to put this awesome flashlight through the ringer as my every day carry (EDC) light.  Inova sent it to me months ago and in that time I have had the light with me on hiking adventures, 2 am calls to see patients (while working as a hospice RN, needing to find house numbers on streets with no lighting), working on my vehicle and on my nightstand for when things go bump in the night.

This black beauty is unique from the other flashlights I have owned, due to its versatility, durability and ability to be charged at my bedside, car or from a computer USB cord.  Weighing in at 6.9oz. and 6.3" long, the flashlight holds one rechargeable lithium ion battery, that charges from zero to full in 4 hours.  The Inova T3R boasts a 234 lumen output on the high setting, which will run constantly for 2 hr. 45 minutes and a long lasting low light at 20 lumens, burning for 40 hours!  The variable settings of high, low and strobe are activated using the tactical three position end-cap switch.  The light is electronically controlled for uniform output.  

The casing is made from an aerospace-grade aluminum body, coated in a mil-spec Type III hard coat anodized finish, that has held up very well despite the multiple falls to cement, pavement and rocks!  The flashlight is shockproof, crush proof and water resistant.  The head is impact resistant, and the optical window has a double sided AR coating and Teflon seal to withstand environmental pressures.
I take this flashlight with me everywhere.  It is light enough to carry it in my front pocket, large enough to grip firmly in my hand and easy enough to use to activate any of the three functions.  I love the strobe light, which is truly blinding and disorienting!  

I don't think you can go wrong with the Inova flashlights, and I especially recommend this light to use for EDC!
