Driving a car isn’t the most dangerous thing to do, but it can turn that way quick. With just one wrong move, something bad can easily happen. We hope it never happens to you, but we hope that you’re prepared if it does. There are thousands of tools you can keep in your car, but what if several of them were combined in one? With a new product from Choetech, that’s exactly what you get.
This 3-in-1 product brings an LED flashlight, a USB port for charging your devices, a window breaker, and a seat belt cutter, all in one compact form factor. The first and most obvious function is the flashlight. It is extremely bright at 250 lumens and can illuminate and entire room in the dark. There are a few different settings to the light. Low, medium, and high. To activate the light, hold down the button for about two seconds to activate high and then press once to change to medium and once again for low. You can also activate an SOS pattern by pressing the switch two times in a row.
To get to the USB charger, simply unscrew the light and you’ll see two ports, a microUSB input and a full size USB output. The 5,200 mAh power bank inside powers both the USB port (for charging devices) and the flashlight. The USB port itself charges at a rate of 2.1A and it works with any device as long as you supply a cable. A standard microUSB cable is included in the box.
The emergency functions of this product are the easiest to get to. On the bottom of the product is a very hard metal tip that is designed to break a car window/windshield with ease. Where is that useful? If your car ends up in the water. We hope it never happens to you, but if for some reason it does, this is a very useful feature. For safety precautions that metal tip is hidden underneath a rubber cap. Sitting just beneath that is a seatbelt cutter that is designed to do exactly what you think, cut through a seatbelt if need be. Both of these features would be invaluable in an emergency and it just adds to the value of this product.
To further add value, this product is water resistant with a rating of IPX6 which essentially means it’s almost completely waterproof. A 12-month warranty is also included with the product.
If you’re interested in picking up this product, which I highly recommend you do, you can do so for $29.99 on Amazon. I cannot stress this enough, but you should certainly have a product like this in your car. It’s never fun to think about possibly being in an emergency, but it’s better to be prepared ahead of time.
