Deal Alert: 2x Anker LC40 Flashlights for $16

If you're looking to add an EDC flashlight to your daily ensemble or if you're looking for a couple of spares to have handy, we've got a deal for you. For a limited time you can save 30% on a pair of Anker LC40 flashlights from Amazon, bringing the price down to just $16 total. That's less than 10 bucks each for a 400-lumen CREE LED in a full-sized, 18650 compatible aluminum body.

The LC40 sports a CREE LED module that can put out 400 lumens when powered by an 18650 battery. On its Max setting it can push that light out to 600 feet and yet it's small enough to fit comfortably in your hand and in your pockets at just 5.2” long. Along with a high-output mode, the light features low and strobe modes that you can select via the rear tailswitch.

It's designed for use with a single 18650 battery for higher brightness and runtime, but it also comes with an adapter cradle to take 3 AAA batteries. That's especially useful in an emergency flashlight role where AAA batteries are easy to come across. Not to mention the LC40 sports a flat tailcap so you can stand it up for hands-free light. And because it's rated IP65 weather-resistant, the LC40 can hold up to the elements.

At a 16 dollar price point, the Anker LC40 represents a solid everyday carry value — and getting a second light only sweetens the deal. This deal won't last, so go ahead and grab a pair of these lights for yourself at the link below.

Deal Alert: Grab a Kershaw Chive for $23

Kershaw knives have earned a reputation of being solid performers that won't break the bank. The Kershaw Chive is a classic example that dozens of our readers carry in their EDCs. Today it's on sale for just $23 at Amazon, down from its MSRP of $79.99.

For that price, it's a bargain given its EDC-friendly features and classic Ken Onion design. Its 420HC steel blade is on the smaller side at just 1.9", making it discreet to use and carry. It deploys via a thumb stud with Kershaw's SpeedSafe assisted opening and secures with a frame lock on its stainless steel handle. Last but not least, a pocket clip and lanyard hole give you more carry options as an EDC or backup blade.

Our readers have great things to say about the Chive too. One reader called it the "best one handed opening pocket knife" they've owned, while others point out how versatile it is. It's "perfect for carry with more formal clothing," and useful on the job for heavy duty work like opening boxes and cutting hoses. You can pick one up one sale at the link below.
