Best Car EDC Light? - NEBO HIGHBEAM Rechargeable Flashlight

Our latest video looks at an innovative flashlight called the HIGHBEAM by NEBO Tools. This flashlight may very well be the best Car EDC Flashlight for the money. Watch the video below to find out more:

I've been using the HIGHBEAM in my car for the past several weeks and have nothing but good things to say about it.

The HIGHBEAM comes in a variety of colors to match your style. The colors are anodized, giving you a durable finish.

The HIGHBEAM is made out of aluminum and is weather resistant. With it's internal rechargeable battery, you get up to 6 hours of runtime with a brightness of 35 lumens.

When charging, the LED glows red. However, the LED does not turn off after the battery is fully charged. I would say that this is the only drawback to the flashlight. Knowing that the LED charges after about two hours, you can turn off charging mode once you believe the light to be charged. I have not noticed any adverse effects to leaving the battery charging for more than 2 hours.

Paracord How To: Caged Solomon Bar Bracelet with Diamond Knot

In our latest Paracord Tutorial, we show you how to make a Caged Solomon Bar with a Diamond Knot to finish it off.

What makes this tutorial unique is that we used Type I Paracord to make this bracelet. For those who don't know what Type I Paracord is, follow the link HERE to read our Blog Post on the subject. Basically, Type I Paracord is like 550 Paracord, but with only 1 internal strand and a tensile strength of about 100 lbs.

The Caged Solomon Bar is a variation of a standard Solomon Bar bracelet. With this small variation, you get a different and stylish design.

After you're done with your bracelet, it's time for the Diamond Knot.

The Diamond Knot allows you to attach the bracelet to a wrist without the use of a buckle.

Try out the Caged Solomon Bar for yourself or add some flair to your next bracelet with a Diamond Knot!
