Repulsor Is The Wearable Flashlight Every Superhero Deserves

Flashlights are indispensable in many situations. Whether at home, around the city, or in the wild outdoors, a powerful and reliable flashlight can be one of the most valuable tools in your arsenal. Depending on the situation, it can be a veritable superhero weapon.  We guess that’s why we’re not surprised someone made the Repulsor, a two-headed flashlight that looks like a superhero weapon straight out of the Marvel cinematic universe. Seriously.

A wearable flashlight, it’s designed to wear around your hips, beaming its piercing bright lights from either side of your body.  That means, you can free up your hands to do other things like operate tools, carry a backup bazooka flashlight, or eat a bag of Doritos while keeping the path out front properly illuminated.

The Repulsor puts out a maximum of 7,911 lumens for some seriously bright lighting, with a throw that the creators claim can cut through hundreds of feet of darkness. Each of the two lenses produce a 60-degree beam angle, ensuring the space out front is as bright as when a car’s headlight turns up on high.  During use, it secures to the back of your belt to keep it in place the entire time, with a flexible arm allowing you to point each of the two lighting elements in any direction (even different ones). It comes with two options in batteries, 8,000 mAh and 12,00 mAh, each of which powers the flashlight for 90 and 115 minutes, respectively. And, yes, the darn thing can be mounted on a bike if you want to give your bicycle headlights with a quality comparable to a car.

    This is awesome! Flashlights for the guy that does not want to drive all the place and lives just outside of the city. I think that is a good price as well.

    Most Maglites that are used by police are around 400 lumens. The Repulsor has 7,911 lumens! That is some serious brightness. I could definitely take something like this out into the wilderness for my weekend hiking trips. If I got injured or needed help I would get much more attention as to my location was with something this bright. I like to hike in the evening. With this light I could easily hike at night when it was cool out and then during the day when it was hot and humid I could lounge around at the lake.

    Although the Repulsor is very light, it appears to be durable. The durability is what I am most interested in. If it proves to be durable then I will definitely put this on my want list. I can definitely see this product being used by law enforcement and firefighters in the future. Head mounted lights always seem to be uncomfortable to me and constantly get snagged. Have you ever been jogging and had your head snapped back from your head-mounted light snagging on a branch? It hurts, so I am glad they are using the hip mount. It just makes so much more sense.

    One last thought, this light may not be good for camping/hiking because it is going to attract a lot of pesky mosquitoes.
