Hear me out: A powerful flashlight makes an incredible Father’s Day gift. These super useful gadgets are great for all sorts of tasks like finding things (including the light switch) in the depths of the basement, dealing with a power outage, and even just walking the dogs at night. You’re probably thinking, “My dad already has a flashlight.” But does he have one that can shine over the length of two football fields, is waterproof, and can be recharged? Didn’t think so.
The Anker Bolder LC90 is the upgraded model of the best affordable flashlight we’ve ever tested, the LC40. Even better, it’s on sale at Amazon for the lowest price we’ve ever seen, so you can give Dad the gift of light without spending too much.
The deal details
The LC90 flashlight is typically $28 on Amazon, but right now you can get it for just $20.50 with the coupon code “ANKERLC90.” That’s $7.50 that you can be saving while lighting up the darkest crevices of your home.
Why people love this flashlight
If you think $20 is too much to be spending on a flashlight, then you haven’t seen the LC90 in action. It has all the features we loved from the LC40, like a tough, waterproof exterior, portability, and bright lights—but the LC90’s features go beyond that. This model is zoomable and has 900 lumens, which is more than double the brightness that can stretch up to 1,000 feet. Pretty good for just $0.50 more than the LC40, which typically costs $20.
The best feature of this flashlight, though, is the fact that it’s USB rechargeable. That means you no longer need to go searching for those odd-sized batteries flashlights tend to use that you never seem to have on hand. Just grab a microUSB cable, plug it in, wait a few hours, and then let there be light. It also shines for 20 hours on a single charge, only takes six hours to fully recharge, and even comes with backup batteries, which means you’ll always have some shine in a pinch.
If you still don’t want to spend $20 on a flashlight, Anker is offering the LC30 for just $8.49 with the code “ANKERLC30.” It isn’t rechargeable, but it is waterproof and would make for a great basic flashlight.
Both of these deals are good until Saturday, June 15, so you have some time (not much) to get an affordable flashlight that will actually light up your home the next time the power goes out. And if you have a Prime membership, you may even be able to get free 1-day shipping and have the gift in time for Dad’s big day.
