For Mother’s Day one year, my father gifted my mom a high-powered flashlight. At the time, it seemed like a random choice—especially coming from the guy who typically doesn’t know how to shop for anyone (Sorry, Dad!). But it turned out to be one of the best and well-used presents of her life. Walking the dogs at night, finding lost items in the depths of the basement, and dealing with a power outage were all tasks that became immensely easier. Plus, she no longer had to deal with her shoddy flashlight that could barely produce a glow.
Right now, you can a high-powered flashlight for yourself or Mom for just $20.50 on Amazon with the code "ANKERLC90." The Anker Bolder LC90 flashlight is typically $28, so you’ll be saving a cool $7.50 while lighting up the darkest crevices of your home.
It’s also the upgraded version of the best affordable flashlight, the LC40 ($19.99 on Amazon), which we loved for its tough, waterproof exterior, portability, and bright lights—plus the fact that's available for a reasonable price point. The LC90 has all of these features and more.
This model is zoomable and has 900 lumens, which is more than double the brightness, so you’re getting so much more for just $0.50 compared to the LC40. This best part about this flashlight? It's rechargeable—you no longer need to go searching for those odd-sized batteries flashlights tend to use. Just grab a microUSB cable and wait a couple hours, and you're good to go. It also shines for 20 hours, only takes 6 hours to fully recharge, and even has backup batteries, which means you’ll always have light in a pinch.
This deal is good until Sunday, May 12, 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.
