This goes without saying, but it is always important to have a quality flashlight around or in your car. With severe weather such as blizzards or thunderstorms, power outages are even more of a threat during the colder months. Plus, the risk for black ice increases anytime you venture outside. Might I suggest the powerful Nitecore Explorer? Check out our vast selection here. More importantly, in the event your car breaks down, nothing can ruin holiday spirits more than a flat tire in the dark. Jack Frost getting the best of you? Enjoy the light you need to get the furnace up and running again. All things considered, along with a powerful strobe option, this flashlight is a must have. Always make sure you are aware of your surroundings and have a safe holiday season!
