When space for gear is limited but need for bright light is mandatory, grab this pint-sized LED light. A water resistant body and epoxy coated circuit guarantee reliable performance, time after time. Speaking of time, it runs for 60 hours on the included AA batteries.
When darkness is the archenemy of productivity, grasp your fingers around the Infinity Ultra. A pint-sized but powerful L.E.D. light featuring Gerber's patent pending technology. Its the kind of light you want when the space for gear is limited and the need for brilliant light is mandatory.
Our circuitry is coated with epoxy for durability and reliable performance. Heck, the Infinity Ultra is even water resistant, thanks to the rubber o-rings that seal it tight and true.
And what about that L.E.D. bulb? Well, it'll never need replacing. It'll blast out a beam for 30 feet. And it'll burn for upwards of 60 hours on the AA batteries we've included. With an anodized aluminum housing and a rugged pocketclip, this little light machine more than earns its keep.
I used this light in a machine shop for 6 years. Although not the brightest light on the market, it is inexpensive & freakishly durable. It fell out of my pocket one evening in the rain and was run over by a lawn mower. I found it about a week later & it still worked just fine.
It's a solid and reliable light with no frills.
Living in the streets for nine years, gave me plenty of experience with a variety of flashlights. On a small budget, a light that had long battery life with a single AA battery was important. Something small, water-resistant was necessary. This little Gerber light is the best flashlight I ever owned and I use it everyday. The model I bought has an adjustable lanyard so I wear it 24/7 here in the California mountains. I once used it to chase a mountain lion away from my camp. It's been a reliable light for about 8 years. I came to the Gerber site to buy a "just-in-case" replacement with my credit card, because I don't want to be without one in case the present light fails which doesn't seem likely -- but you never know. But you Folks don't accept PO Box addresses, So, I guess I'll have to find a retailer that carries these incredible little lights somewhere down there in Civilization..
I've owned three of these Infinity light for 10-15 years (there was the same model without Infinity on a couple). I've used them camping, get home bag, etc and they are trustworthy beyond words. So much so that I've put together kits for my wife and daughter and each includes one of these lights. We use them camping often and just hang one in the tent and it works the entire trip. Mine still run no less than 2-3 days solid constantly on with just any old battery. I'd have carried one of these in the Army (101st Airborne) had they been around then. I did carry a Tac II and a Mark II back then. Served me well.
I've owned the same light now for over a decade, it was black, now it looks almost like polished aluminum due to being an EDC keychain item. It has been very useful on a regular basis for me.
To those who complain about it being delicate and not working well, all I can say is changing the battery and cleaning it takes care of any issues I've ever had. I've had this light flung many yards and slam into concrete leaving dings and gouges with no function issues at all.
My only wish is that this light had a reflector to increase it's brightness and focus, that's why I gave it a 4 out of 5.
I've had the red version of this for over 10 years and it's been the best compact light I've had for tactical and home use. I do have to say that the battery is the original and it gets moderate use every year, between 15 to 30 hours on average. If this ever gets lost or needs replacing I hope that I can get a similar replacement.
Actually found this lite on a roof and it had been there for some time as it was color burnt from the sun. I have had it over 15 yrs and its the best little lite I've ever had. I used a lot in bedroom so not to disturb my spouse early mornings. Just changed the battery it was original Gerber battery. Tremendous tool we need more products like this.
I got one of these several years ago. When I first got it, I thought it was perfect for an EDC flashlight. It was compact, lightweight, and powerful enough for my needs.
Until one day it rolled off a duffel bag, roughly 10 inches off the ground, and landed on the sidewalk. I didn't think anything of it at the time. But I went and tried to use it shortly afterwards, and it was "flickery." Sometimes it wouldn't come on at all; until I knocked it against something, and then it would come on. But even then it still would flicker. I can't recall how long ago this was, but it has performed the same ever since. When it works, its great; it does exactly what I need it to do . . . . when it works. I do recommend this light; I just don't recommend dropping it from ANY height. I'm not sure what ". . . coated with epoxy for durability and reliable performance. . ." means, but I don't think it means what Gerber thinks it means. If a fall from less than a foot causes this kind of damage, it doesn't speak very well to their definition of "durable."
I have the RED LED, went to Afghanistan read my maps, instructions in sand storms, rain and even clean up weapons in total darkness. The enemy didn't even know we were there. The best flash light I ever had.
I've had a couple of the red LED lights, and carried them constantly over the years. Excellent lights-- went through the washer without incident, simple to use, plenty of light for tasks. I used them to read without disturbing my wife, for checking on the kids without waking them up, and for moving around the house at night without destroying my night vision. PLEASE MAKE THE RED LED VERSION AGAIN!
I'm always on the lookout for a solid, compact flashlight for my security duties. Very small, lightweight, plenty bright for my purposes. Twist to turn it on, press down on the butt with your thumb to toggle\strobe. Perfect for checking ID's, searching the floor, or signalling coworkers.
I so wish this still came in the Red LED only version. That is the only true night vision saving option for me! bring back the RED LED version!
I have carried this light daily for over a year. Carries light as a feather, battery is long lasting, and it is built like a tank. Love it.
On my 3rd one. It survived several backpacking trips and finally ousted my LED conversion "other aluminum AA flashlight" from my pack.
My son, SSgt/USA, gave me one of these with the red bulb. I have treasured it because he knows my tactical needs. Unfortunately, the bulb went intermittent and now it's dead. I see no way to replace the bulb, so now it is useless.
It's not the price I regret, it's the sentimental value, AND the utility. Oh well, for $22, what should I expect.... But from Gerber? Hmm.
For a bit more money you can probably find a better flashlight that gives more output (lumens).
However, I appreciate how this flashlight is very sturdy and doesn't feel cheap.
I have one of these that I've owned for a little while now. It's always worked fine for me. Puts out a lot of light for such a small device. UNTIL, I dropped it one time. It was a small drop too; only about 2 feet. But now it doesn't work so well. Sometimes it will blink out randomly, sometimes it won't come on at all. I had been curious about the "epoxy coated circuitry," but didn't want to test it. I guess I know now.
I've carried one of these around for a while. It was fine when I last used it in June. I decided to check the battery in October and found that it had stuck fast in the barrel of the torch. Seems to be impossible to remove it so the torch is ruined.
I own 2 of these. Carried one to the gulf with me back in 2008, and used it at night to read by. Can't beat the fact that it requires only 1 AA battery. I use the lithium batteries and get better run time.
I won't go anywhere without at least 1 of them with me.
Simply love it! Attach a ring to it and hook it anywhere, battery life is great. Had it for years and still works; really handy, I always have it on me.
