At its size, the Goal Zero Lighthouse Micro Flash Lantern looks more like a somewhat large key fob. And for all intents and purposes, it can serve as one. It is, however, a legit dual-purpose lighting tool that you can use as both a tiny flashlight and a mini-lantern, making it a perfect addition to anyone’s EDC kit.
The smallest in the outfit’s Lighthouse series of lanterns, it measures just 3.7 x 1.5 inches (height x diameter), so you can drop it in a pants pocket or a bag pouch without any problems. That makes it ideal to keep on hand, whether you’re just hanging with neighborhood friends, spending a day out around the city, or hitting the trails for a weekend adventure.
Despite the size, the Goal Zero Lighthouse Micro Flash Lantern packs serious power, delivering up to 150 lumens in lantern mode, where light diffuses from under the cap, and 120 lumens when used as a flashlight, where the light comes out off the top end. It comes with multiple brightness settings for both lighting modes, with the battery holding up for up to 8.5 hours on high and up to 170 hours on the lowest setting.
To ensure it can handle the outdoors, it’s IPX-6 rated, so you can use it in the middle of inclement weather, with a durable construction that will allow it to handle the occasional bumps and drops. It has a handle on top for hanging on a hook.
Available now, the Goal Zero Lighthouse Micro Flash Lantern is priced at $24.99.
