Powerful light that also functions as a lantern
Summary : The COAST PX250 is weather resistant, has a bright focusing beam, and slides open to function as an area light. Perfect for the outdoors.
The COAST PX250 flashlight might not have been designed with camping in mind, but I found that it was perfect camping and road tripping. First off, you have a powerful 650 lumen light focuses with a quick twist. It’s more than enough power for anything you’d need to do outdoors. On low, you’re still getting 95 lumens and over seven hours of runtime. COAST has a lot of flashlights with similar specs, but the COAST PX250 literally has a trick up its sleeve. The body of the flashlight slides apart to reveal a bar light that works great for lighting up the picnic table or tent. The bar light also has solid red and flashing red. The solid red is great for casting just a little light at the picnic table for a mellow vibe. The flashing red is handy to have in case you have car troubles because the bottom is also magnetic. The COAST PX250 runs on 4 AAAs and is weather resistant, with a double cap keeping moisture out of the battery compartment. I found it to be a solid choice for the outdoors.
