Klein Flashlight Laser Notable Features

Klein designed the Rechargeable Flashlight to give you a bright light that lasts the course of the day. Starting with the LED light, the Klein 56040 rechargeable flashlight puts out 350 lumens on its High setting, and 125 lumens in Low. Klein puts the run-time at up to 12 hours (in Low). You can recharge the onboard lithium-ion battery via the included micro-USB cable.

The Klein 56040 features a twist focus bezel. That lets you focus your beam narrowly for further distances, or open it up for lighting up a work area. Most unusually—the 56040 flashlight comes with a Class IIIA laser right atop the LED lens. This makes it super-easy to pinpoint objects at a distance when communicating with your crew. Presumably, you could also electrical tape it to a shark…or not.

The Klein Rechargeable Flashlight also comes with some other convenience features. A handy magnetic base lets you stick the light against a metal surface for hands-free lighting. The removable pocket clip features a lanyard hole for tethering (Notably, the light also survives a 10-ft drop test). Finally, the Klein 56040 magnetic laser flashlight carries an IP54 rating. You shouldn’t have to worry too much about it failing due to dust or moisture.
