Hybrid Light Journey 250

What sets it apart?

The Hybrid Light mission statement’s a pretty solid setup: “Light the world with the lowest impact on the earth and your wallet.” This super-bright 250 lumen, solar-powered LED flashlight carries the mantra well by providing impressive illumination without the need for spare batteries or external charging equipment. Backed by a lifetime warranty the Journey 250’s efficiency includes a USB port that enables you to charge other devices, such as a cellphone anywhere sunlight avails.

How do I use it?

Measuring 8.5 inches long and weighing 7 ounces, the Hybrid Light Journey 250 packs a lot of functionality into a sleek profile that’s easily carried in a jacket or pants pocket, held in your glove box or stored in a tackle bag. Protected by a hardened polycarbonate shell, this flashlight/charger is shock-proof, waterproof to 1 meter and designed to float.

Angler’s insight:

Look under the HybridLight Journey 250’s hood and you’ll find an impressive engine designed for top performance over the long haul. A 4400 mAh lithium-ion battery built to provide 18 hours of light on a full charge, also stores power for up to seven years without being recharged. This means a dependable light that’ll illuminate everything from the inner reaches of your predawn tackle bag to the campground when you have to get up at 2 a.m. to see what that noise was outside the bedroom window.
