While a keychain flashlight isn’t bright enough to help you fix the car when it breaks down in the middle of the road at night, it should prove useful in many situations. From helping you find a phone that fell off your pocket in the driveway to helping you locate the keyhole after coming home drunk, there’s no shortage of situations where they’ll see plenty of use. When it comes to keychain flashlights, smaller is always better and there’s nothing that outdoes the Bullet Flashlight in size.
Made by Slughaus, it’s a keychain flashlight cast in the shape of a 9mm round, allowing you to throw a torch light into your key fob without adding much weight or bulk. Despite the minimal size, it throws up a satisfying 15 lumens of brightness, making it perfectly functional for a whole host of everyday situations.
The Bullet Flashlight has a shell cut in anodized aircraft-grade aluminum, ensuring it’s both ultra-light at 6 grams and durable enough to stand up to daily use. To achieve an even sleeker frame, it uses a rotating bottom for control in favor of buttons, allowing you to switch the light on and off with just a quick quarter-turn. A trio of LR41 button cell batteries power the onboard LED, while a built-in D-ring lets you quickly added it to any key fob or carabiner. It comes in two colors: gunmetal and matte black.
A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for the Bullet Flashlight. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at $32.
