A quality flashlight is an essential item in everyday carry (EDC) gear. Cloud Defensive handheld lights are the best option due to their durability, brightness, and user-friendliness. They're waterproof, shockproof, and drop-proof, making them ideal for outdoor activities and everyday use. Cloud Defensive handheld lights have the latest LED technology to produce a bright beam that can illuminate the darkest environments. They're easy to operate even for those not familiar with flashlights. They also come in single-output and multi-output variants.
So, what is the best option for Cloud Defensive handhelds for most people? We generally recommend (and, in full disclosure, sell) the Chicro! It is designed to be an admin/inspection light, with a form factor that is easy to pocket and handle, and simple and efficient usability all around. You get two modes—350 and 35 lumens—activated via a rear tail clicky with momentary and constant on, and powered by a 10440 rechargeable li-ion battery, which is rare in itself for EDC lights. Even better, Cloud Defensive has included a built-in USB-C port for onboard charging, for the ultimate convenience.
Chicro charging instructions:
- Ensure that the battery is positioned in the light with the positive terminal facing the light head.
- Make sure that the light is fully assembled.
- Connect the USB-C cord to the light head.
- Click the tail cap switch. NOTE: YOU MUST CLICK THE SWITCH OR THE LIGHT WILL NOT CHARGE. After clicking, the charge-indicator light will turn red, indicating that the light is in charge mode. When the light is fully charged, the charge indicator light will turn green.
- Unplug the USB-C cord, and you're good to go.
