Flashlights, pocket knives, and robust organization take center stage in this week’s roundup.

IMALENT MS32, the New World’s Brightest Flashlight

In the ever-evolving landscape of high-performance flashlights, IMALENT has again pushed the boundaries by introducing its latest powerhouse, the MS32. The IMALENT MS32 is designed for those who demand the absolute pinnacle of flashlight tech, literally blasting onto the scene with jaw-dropping 200,000 lumens, making it the brightest flashlight in the world. And yes, we’ve covered some seriously powerful flashlights before, like IMALENT’s former champ, the MS18, which packed a whopping 100,000 lumens, but the MS32 literally outperforms it twice over. 32 Cree XHP70.2 LEDs power this beast, which has a beam distance of 1,618m with an intensity of 655,000cd and comes in an IP56 waterproof body built from durable aluminum alloy with a handle for comfortable carry.

It’s not just about the raw power, though. IMALENT equips the MS32 with an OLED display that informs you about battery life, modes, and temperature. There are eight modes to choose from, including an eco-friendly Low and main event Turbo mode, letting you tailor the light to your needs. To tame the intense heat the light generates, IMALENT employs a sophisticated cooling system with built-in fans because, let’s face it, 200,000 lumens is nothing short of a tiny sun in your hands. The rechargeable battery pack boasts a runtime of up to 345 hours on Low, and it can be fast-charged using the included 100W USB-C PD charger in as little as two hours.

Orbitkey 2-in-1 Tech Pouch

Orbitkey, known for its sleek and minimalist organization solutions, is back on Kickstarter with a new project: the 2-in-1 Tech Pouch and its two accompanying accessories, the Desk Pouch and the Pencil Case, with a promise to tackle tech clutter with the same blend of practicality and style we love about Orbitkey’s products.

The 2-in-1 Tech Pouch boasts a clever twin pouch design that provides ample space for essentials. The main pouch has a removable inner pouch that doubles as a desk pouch and is a convenient grab-and-go quick-access companion. It has a foldable divider for customization, offering separate spaces for cables, power banks, and other tech essentials, with each compartment further organized with internal pockets and elastic loops, ensuring everything has its designated spot. It also sports an integrated fold-down front panel that eliminates the frustration of rummaging through the depths of a pouch to find small items and an external zip pocket with cable pass-through that makes on-the-go device charging hassle-free.

This modular pouch, desk pouch, and pencil case have an expandable base and self-standing design that allows them to remain upright and stable when placed on flat surfaces. They’re crafted from waterproof, recycled polyester and PET plastic, ensuring your essentials are kept safe, making this collection a practical choice for maximum organization and secure compact storage.

CRKT Padawan Pedro Buzetti Folder

Earlier this month, Oregon-based knife company Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT) released the Padawan folding knife as a part of their 2024 product collection, which promises to be the brand’s biggest and boldest yet. The Padawan is Pedro Buzetti’s first knife design with CRKT, with the “Padawan” name reflecting Buzetti’s role as a learner under the “Master” of knife making, Flavio Ikoma.

With a blade length of 3.01” and an overall length of 7.13”, the Padawan is a versatile folding knife that features a drop-point blade made from 14C28N steel, offering excellent edge retention and corrosion resistance. Its stainless steel handle is accentuated by a Micarta overlay that provides a comfortable and secure grip. The Padawan also boasts a smooth opening mechanism thanks to its IKBS ball-bearing pivot, while a modified frame lock with a thick lock bar firmly secures the blade. Its pocket clip allows the knife to sit low in the pocket, making it discreet and convenient to carry.
