The Anker Bolder LC 90 Rechargeable Flashlight Reviewed
The Anker Bolder LC 90 is one of the toughest, brightest and most reliable flashlights to have ever accompanied me on my outdoor adventures or when I have needed an extra light around my home. Whether I am camping, exploring, exercising or walking the dogs, I don’t only have a dependable flashlight, with adjustable light settings, but can also fend off anyone who surprises me with its extra-long handle and scalloped bezel. It can be as discreet or as showy as I want, since it looks good, but can also fit into my jacket pocket. Even though, due to its steel casing, it is a bit heavier than I prefer.
Personally, I vote the Anker LC 90 as the best rechargeable flashlight that I have bought in recent years, and I find that it makes a perfect gift idea too.
