I am of the opinion that you can never have to many flashlights around the house. You have to have a few extras because if you have kids a few of the lights will disappear right when you need them. I like the flashlights that are higher tech and allow you to get light where you need it and still keep both of your hands free.
A new spotlight and area light has debuted called the Norman 3600 Portable LED Area-spot Light. The thing is large coming in at 17 pounds and standing 33-inches tall. It can be deployed in 20 seconds from its storage bin to the upright and ready to use position. The Nomad 3600 is rechargeable and lasts for nine hours on low, six hours on medium, and 2.5 hours on high setting.
The light has three intensities for area lighting and spot lighting. It can telescope up to 8-feet tall and the light head rotates 340-degrees. The light can be worn as a backpack for portability and it can be carried with a handle too. The brightest setting is 3600 lumens and the light can be seen for up to 1.1 miles. Medium settings 2400 lumens and low setting is 1200 lumens. The thing is really cool and I was thinking it would be nice to have one until I saw the price of $1,199.99.
